Kiwi festival faves Fat Freddy's Drop trail their soon-come fifth studio album ('Special Edition Part 1', out 15 November) with this single-track teaser. 'Kamo Kamo' finds the band in straight-up reggae mode, opening with plinky-plonky clavinet chords before dropping down into a midtempo groove centred around a lolloping bassline and topped with Dallas Tamaira's instantly recognisable soulful vocal, not to mention some fine flourishes from the horn section. Production-wise there are a few echo-y, dubby moments here and there, while things take an almost Middle Eastern twist in the closing 30 seconds or so. All told, this should whet fans' appetites nicely.
