Melt Yourself Down is the sound of Cairo ’57, Cologne ’72, New York ’78, London today. North and south, east and west. Horns blowing, drums vibrating, a suffocating fever dream. Primal. Vital. The house band from hell. Making music you can see, sounds you can smell, vibrations you can taste. Fierce funk and punk and detonated jazz. Rhythms to rearrange your DNA. Hoodoo voodoo? They do, you do. They call it a debut. Five senses being ripped by six souls across seven continents on eight songs. Released to widespread acclaim in the UK in 2013, Melt Yourself down finally sees a North American release courtesy of Leaf. Initial copies on CD feature a new variant of the already iconic album artwork and include an exclusive bonus disc containing a previously unreleased live album recorded December 2013 at the prestigious Trans Musicales festival in France.  Melt Yourself Down is Pete Wareham (Acoustic Ladyland, Polar Bear), Kushal Gaya (Zun Zun Egui), Shabaka Hutchings (Sons of Kemet, Heliocentrics), Tom Skinner (Hello Skinny, Sons of Kemet, Mulatu Astatke), Ruth Goller (Acoustic Ladyland, Rokia Traoré), Satin Singh (Fela!). Live, they’re a tropical storm lit by full-frontal fireworks, carried by a finger-pointing, proselytizing equatorial preacher-man spitting fire and brimstone calls that demand a response. Their message: Melt Yourself Down and turn yourself up. Get out of it and get into it.
