“egg tooth” album launch party
April 11th 2017
The Jalapeno Records jazz / soul virtuosos launch their stunning and hotly-tipped new album at east London’s most celebrated arts venue
ephemerals’ star has risen steadily since they broke onto the scene a couple of years back with their critically acclaimed Hype Machine #1 debut album – nothin is easy.
‘egg tooth’ sees London songwriter Hillman Mondegreen and US singer Wolfgang Valbrun combine beautifully, marrying direct and honest lyricism with powerful vocal delivery. Pushing the boundaries of their craft, this release unashamedly emanates Jazz, Afrobeat and Psychedelia which galvanises the Soul and R&B that remains at the heart of the band.
This 7 piece band’s stunning live performances have made them festival headliners in Europe and will be complemented for the London launch show by the string section with which they recorded the new album.
Boasting previous support from BBC 6 music (Craig Charles Gilles Peterson), Radio 1 (Huw Stephens, Phil Taggart, Friction and Target) and a playlist on Radio 1 and 1Xtra this will be their only London show before they embark on their European tour.
Don’t miss this chance to catch one of the UK’s most promising soul acts at the cusp of their next next big leap forward at the stunning Rich Mix.
