– THE MILITARY COUP –
Philly-born bluesman, Devon Gilfillian returns with a Bob Marley-baiting chunk of Nigerian funk; Get Out and Get It being his ode to getting “all hyped up [and] marching out the door”.
The son of Café Olé singer and percussionist Nelson Gilfillian has charmed us once before with a 2016 EP that channelled his latter-day Nashville connections as well as his love of Al Green, Ray Charles and Jimi Hendrix.
Get Out and Get It sees Gilifillian’s former blues-heavy work and raises it a supercharged serving of psychedelic rock.
The result is a down and dirty romp that seamlessly combines the singer’s signature sound with that of co-writer Jamie Lidell and producer Shawn Everett (Alabama Shakes, The War On Drugs).
The track is the first to be released from an as-yet unnamed forthcoming release.
