Following the worldwide success of 'Blackbird' in 2013, Freddy's present a 9-track album recorded at the band's Bays Studio in Kilbirnie, Wellington a former 1950s HMV vinyl pressing plant.

The predominantly studio-written album draws on the lexicon of genres that have come to epitomize the band's sound. Opening with the slow burn funk of 'Wairunga Blues' the album journeys through a hybrid of reggae, jazz with techno rhythms underpinning Freddy's signature horns and Joe Dukie's souful and introspective vocal, arriving finally on the crooked blues jam of 'Novak'. The album exudes the confidence of a band truly comfortable in their skin.
