Cover Me(I Get Lifted)

This edition of "Cover Me" features a reworking of a George McRae classic "I Get Lifted". The cover comes off a six track Ep i have been diggin' by funk outfit Orgone, on Ubiquity Records. Described as cosmic funk, their version sounds like it could come straight off a Brand New Heavies album, but is probably a little uncool to call it acid jazz.

The best work from Orgone though, comes off the last cut on the Ep. "Hambone" is an absolute killer track, starting out as a bit of a boogie funk affair, then moving through areas of afro and spaced out disco. It's the kind of track you can imagine the band jamming live for about a half hour straight and whipping the crowd up in a frenzy. Definitely looking forward to a full length release from these guys later in the year.
