Majestic, low-slung funk here from the man Moodymanc — aka ex-2020 Soundsystem mainstay Danny Ward — on his own Well Cut imprint. Title track 'Chicago Blues' turns a mere two chords into purest house music hypnotism, with howling, deep blues vocals accompanying a spoken word tale of inequality in ghetto life, as mournful strings make the case for change. Simple, but totally devastating. On the flip, 'Love Like' grinds its murky, churning percussion beneath more emotive strings. This is salve for the soul.
