Shirlette & The Dynamite Bros deliver the goods - Tonight (12/16/11) @ Snug Harbor

Posted By on Fri, Dec 16, 2011 at 9:59 AM

The Dynamite Brothers have been turning out soulful, funky grooves for the past decade-plus, a fact that Durham rapper Shirlette Ammons was fully aware of when the two acts began collaborating (Mitch Rothrock, the Dynamites’ excellent guitarist, has been a fill-in for Ammons’ Mosadi Music project). Ammons recorded vocals over the top of some songs from the Dynamite Brothers’ 2009 LP, Again, tilting more soul than hip-hop. She then recruited some NC-centric names — The Rosebuds’ Kelly Crisp, Juan Huevos, violinist Daniel Hart, Yahzarah — to flesh out songs new and old, resulting in this year’s intriguing And Lovers Like. Live, the animated Ammons delivers the goods, too.
