    LEISURE - "Take It To The Top"

    When New Zealand quintet LEISURE comes to New York City next week, they'll be arriving on the winds of some serious hype. "Take It To The Top" is their fourth single in recent months, and they're 4/4. They've paving the funk-rock roads cleared by bands like Jungle, pairing hushed, sensual lyrics with insistent backbeats and a dedication to dancing.

    For this latest cut, the band clambers on the back of a big walking bass line and adds tinges of psychedelic atmosphere to the proceedings. Yet another example of the great music coming out of New Zealand.

    You can catch LEISURE in NYC on October 23.
