Track review of "Aragon/El Niño"

Sure Fire Soul Ensemble: Aragon/El Niño
Sure Fire Soul Ensemble, from San Diego, is one of the most talented new bands on the West Coast. The group mixes funk, soul, jazz, Latin & African influences to create unique, exciting music.

Their 2018 single on Colemine Records, "Aragon b/w El Niño" is a little black crack 45 inch slab of jazzy funk grooves.

"Aragon" is high-energy jazz-funk with potent percussion underpinning happy horns that fly high. The rhythm section, guitar & keys move the groove, and yet it's all about the horn section.

"El Niño" is a little more laid-back, psychedelic funk. The horns are a little moodier, and the guitar effects are front and center before a mean saxophone jam brings the song to climax, culminating in a dope breakdown. Look out for their third full-length studio release on Colemine Records in early 2019.
