Nobody seems to love old-school soul, funk and R&B quite as much as the Brits. And nobody puts it all together — along with dashes of disco, rap, hip-hop, dancehall, psychedelia and more — like this Bristol collective does once again on their latest full-length throwback If you didn’t know better, you might think these 13 authentically old-school cuts were obscure singles from some serious crate-diggers. Which I guess they are, in a way. Bottom line: The Allergies are nothing to sneeze at.
THE PRESS RELEASE: “The Allergies are out to provide the soundtrack to your summer with Say The Word. Rackabeat and DJ Moneyshot continue to bring their A game on another quality album, that’s jam-packed with their patent blend of party funk, soul and hip-hop. Their latest offering sees serial collaborators Andy Cooper (Ugly Duckling), Marietta Smith and Mr Woodnote all providing additional heat. While guest appearances from Dynamite MC, The Cuban Brothers, Dr Syntax and Skunkadelic guarantee to solidify this as another sure-fire winner. After three solid albums, Say The Word is getting pulses racing. When it drops, trust us, we know you are going to dig this!”
