If there’s anything that we’ve learned from Kimberlite Records notifications about upcoming releases is that once you see the pre-sale alert, you quickly add the idem to your shopping cart! Known for their serious soul 45’s, Kimberlite Records debuts the latest from their discography from The Love Rights. “Talk of The Town” b/w “It’s Time For A Change” is an essential double-sider that marks the first release from the band.
The “A” side Talk of The Town is a firme ballad in the oldies tradition of the East Side Stories compilations and doesn’t even attempt to hide the heavy influence of other big voices like Linda Jones and Barbara Lynn. After a superficial listen you’ll be forgiven for just appreciating a superlative slowie, however Amber’s aggressively authentic female perspective echoes empowerment anthems like You Can’t Take It, and I’m A Good Woman by the aforementioned.
Flip the disc and now you’ve got something so distinctly different, It’s Time For A Change hits with a punch of brass and positivity and follows through with an infectious dance-tempo. As soon as you fall into the groove, you’re hit with a funk cacophony that exactly fits the songs message of affirmative transformation. This release is as lyrically poignant as it is musically perfect and sums up why we are so proud to be working with The Love Rights!
