milk kan The Junk Shop (CD, £7.95)label: Blang
Never lost for words South Londoners Milk Kan release their 2nd album. “The Junk Shop” is a fusion of guitar grooves, old-skool hip hop, 70s Jamaican sound systems and bursts of Latino brass. Having raided a local junk shop of its discarded treasures they took off to dub master producer Prince Fatty to cut the booty into their wizard word craft. Savour the stories and bounce to the beats.
