25/03/2013: Coco and the Butterfields – Low/Encore

cocoandthebutterfileds

Fip Fok.  A genre you might not be aware of but one you need to wrap your ears around quick.  Coco and the Butterfields are the Canterbury based band that created this genre, and as well as having a live E.P available they’ve just launched their shiny new website.

Available from the site are three free downloads.  This weeks free download is the first of these, a fusion of Flo Rida’s Low and Jay Z’s Encore, brought together by Coco and the Butterfields’ unque sound.  Sailing in on a violin Low/Encore anchors in your head instantly.  Driven by a double bass, guitar and bango Coco and the Butterfields even have a beat boxer.  A genius combination already; the rapping completes this fast paced and joyful mash-up of Low/Encore alongside the inventive beat boxing.  You won’t have heard anything like this anywhere else today.

Your ears need this inside them.  Get your free download of Low/Encore by Coco and the Butterfields here.  Also find a cover of Just a Dream by Nelly and Feeling Good by Nina Simone.  They’re only available for a limited time however so get them quick.
