El Michels Affair – 4th Chamber / Snakes (7″) [Big Crown Records]
A – 4th Chamber
B – Snakes (feat. Lee Fields)
The sound is familiar—grimy psych-soul renditions of Wu and solo member classics like “4th Chamber” and “Verbal Intercourse” are reproduced with a live-band fidelity that hews close to the spirit of the original productions while getting a little room to sprawl—but they bring a few new ideas to the plate. “Snakes” features vocals from labelmate, Lee Fields.
