Flapjack Records celebrates its 5th glorious vinyl release by presenting us with Nashville, TN's cave jumping, banjo blasting wonder: Wattie Green. In the last year Wattie has become somewhat of a common household name. His fine mid Tennessee cooking can be found in most dj's recipe boxes. On this edition of Flapjack Records, Wattie Green gives us the kitchen floor filler "Sea Lion Woman EP", which has been long awaited by many householders this whole last year.
The title track "Sea Lion Woman" is an instant classic. The vocal on this track comes from an old playground rhyme that is unbelievably catchy, full of soul, and even incorporates the original 1939 recording. This vocal over Wattie's signature beats and bass line mix perfectly like eggs, flour, and sugar, adding more cookies in the cookie jar.
"Mid Tenn Strut" is swing time Wattie specialty. This tune sets the tone with a jackin' piano base, wily jazzy guitar lead center, and fresh saxophone frosting. Wattie's niche sound is basted all over this delicious delight.
On the flip side we have our other Tennessee favorites Real Time Hand Motion who take "Sea Lion Woman" to the next level with there smoothed out soul remix. An excellent addition contrasting the original but adding so much more flavor.
Last but not least is Flapjack veteran Bryan Jones remixing the previously released digital exclusive "Bob Speaks". Bryan's walking acoustic bass line remix drives home and then back out to the store for some more fixins to fill up the whole family. A perfect mix to round out the meal and a great savory and sweet release to kick off the new year.
What Flapjack has in store for everyone is some fantastically fun, upbeat, tasteful house music stacked high on a plate of
happiness. Remember that warm feeling of waking up in the morning and coming down to the kitchen where mom had a delicious plate of flapjacks just waiting for you? Do you remember how great they were? Here at Flapjack Records we do em up better than your momma made em....more
