Chicxulub / Linus


A 2 track funk single (7m 26s) — released November 1st 2019 on Delights 45

Brighton cinematic psych combo MNP returns to Delights with two sides of brain-melting excellence:

The tense crime jazz-psych smasher A-side "Chicxulub" sees Simon "Beta Hector" Hill switching to double bass, and welcomes the band's new member, Lee Nicklen, on keys. On the flipside, MNP are joined again by Markey Funk, who spices up their moody slow-burner "Linus" with pinches of space-age exotica.

Recommended for fans of: The Natural Yogurt Band, Drumetrics, The Heliocentrics.
