Wet Tuna, one of Matt Valentine’s cosmic side projects, has returned with the funky “Sweet Chump Change,” from his upcoming record Warping All By Yourself, which is set for an April 8th release on Three Lobed Recordings.
This track finds the New England-dwelling guitar psychonaut leaning more into his Cymande/Funkadelic side. He slinks cool, coiling vocal melodies and molten Eddie Hazel-like solos around a sauntering groove with an undeniable coolness. Just check it out for yourself below:
Warping All By Yourself features more of this dreamy, astral funk flavor blending perfectly with Valentine’s fried guitar pyrotechnics that MV Heads know and love. It’s a swampy and head-swirling trip that fans of dub, psychedelia and jazz-funk could all equally enjoy.
