maigret jnr Sick Friends E.P. (7", £4.35)label: Make Mine Music
After hearing ‘Always Again’, the opening track from Maigret Jnr’s forthcoming EP, you likely won’t be envisioning a DJ and vinyl obsessive, whose song-writing exploits began after plugging headphones into a mic-socket and mumbling over Pete Rock and Req One instrumental. Instead you’re greeted with a big haunting vocal and muted organs over heavy isolated beats, a knack of storytelling that is more in key with Leonard Cohen than an aspiring teenage MC surrounded with endless releases from labels such as Wordplay, Source and Output.
