Mo Kolours debut out now!

The very cool debut album from Mo Kolours has just dropped, on LP, CD and digital (pay what you like for digital at Bandcamp).

"There’s an exotic appeal to Mo Kolours and his music but there’s also something very British about this record. Mo Kolours follows in the footsteps of UK artists who have synthesised a variety of imported styles and added the indelible stamp of our rainy island, from The Specials and Cymande (who receive a tribute here in the form of Mike Black) to Massive Attack and Mala.

His humour reveals an idiosyncratic Britishness too, as when he shouts out forgotten budget rides such as the Datsun Sunny on Play It Loud (In Your Car) or titles his ominous environmental warning Natural Disasters Wish List."

One Handed Music add "If you're new to Mo Kolours you might want to check his three previous EPs. They are all on Bandcamp or on this handy Spotify playlist I made. Shout to The Beta Band.

Londoners will want to come to the album launch next week, featuring Mo live, a mighty merch table, and DJ support from Al Dobson Jr., Jeen Bassa, Reginald Ommas Mamode IV, Tenderlonious and me, Alex Chase.

Look out also for a Resident Advisor podcast dropping in the next day or two which features multiple exclusives from Mo & his crew."
