"The beast of winter is slain and what better way to celebrate than with some solar flared grooves courtesy of Cornershop?" – The Quietus
Adding to their treasure trove of a back catalogue, Cornershop have today announced the release of their new album ‘Urban Turban’.
‘Urban Turban’ is a walk through the hard-drive of Tjinder Singh's head – it’s a summer breeze with electronic sound, Swedish and French songstresses, Lancashire primary school singers, and a throwback to his Indian folk roots (or as he calls it, the pre-cursor to hip-hop itself).
Whilst many other groups seem to have got themselves stuck in a time of austerity (for the past decade), Cornershop continue to showcase all they want, in their own time – it’s a longer route but one that has solid foundation and respect.
The first single from ‘Urban Turban’ is ‘Milkin' It’, a track that charts down hip-hop’s pioneers, it features In Light of Aquarius on vocals.
