Hypnotic Brass Ensemble's Bulletproof Brass EP hits iTunes this week. Whether you're of the opinion that the whole brass band thing is sooooo 2008, or that a few centuries into the game it's never been hotter, HBE kind of unequivocally rocks. Well chosen as their previous cover material's been ("Shaft In Africa"; "Moments In Love"; "SpottieOttieDopaliscious" etc.) it's good to hear them exploring original compositions on Bulletproof , judiciously augmenting the new record's space theme with sampled film dialog (e.g. Space Is the Place Sun Ra in the building). Listen below to "Starfighter" and buy the EP on iTunes here .
