Mr. Scruff - Friendly Bacteria

Mr. Scruff's, aka Andy Carthy, new record is the most complete exploration of where his music is at right now. You can still count upon a shedload of gritty funk and soul but the new record displays a stripped back musicality, a depth that maybe hasn't been there before.

In Carthy's own words its 'tougher, sparser, less samples, more bass. More vocals and collaborations and shorter tunes.' If this record proves anything, it's that there's much more to the work of Andy Carthy than dance floor grooves and funny cartoons.
