Whew! Natural Mystics’ blueprints for UK street soul simmer back on road with Isle of Jura’s precious reissue schedule
Practically impossible to find in decent nick 2nd hand, The NM Band’s swaying beauty ‘She’s Wants’ is understandably highly sought-after by anyone digging in the racks for that finest strain of UK basement blues music. It’s the only output by UK lovers rock legends Natural Mystic as The NM Band, and perfectly poises their reggae gait in a cool R&B soul mode, layering glorious vocal and DX7 synth harmonies on snapping Akai drum machine snare, plucky bass and tickled marimba in the OG, backed by a stripped down dub, ‘She Wants (More)’, with the vocals peeled back to leave only choral contrails around the reverb heavy snare and strolling bassline. Trust it works a proper treat, just like back in the day on Kiss FM and Choice FM.
