Portuguese power-house funk from Marta Ren And The Groovelvets ‘Stop, Look, Listen’ will appeal to fans of old school new funk. ‘Release Me’ is a big sounding mid tempo dancer with full on horns and a really funky b-line, the group tackle the Northern classic ‘I’m Not Your Regular Woman’ with gusto, the brooding ‘Two Kinds Of Man’ is excellent, ‘I Wanna Go Back’ thunders along at 100mph while the slower ‘So Long’ is a lovely bit of tough end bluesy! Also check the deep ‘Smiling Faces’ for another low slung highlight. Zip tight playing, razor sharp horns and super deep bass typify this solid album of late 60’s inspired funky soul.
