Following the release of their second album Two Tonne Testimony in March, London three piece Miraculous Mule release Sound of the Summer, a psychedelic-soul inflected stomper which takes a well worn music industry cliche and turns it on it's head. Taking its cues from Hendrix and the Isley Brothers 'Sound of the Summer' begins as a paean to long joyous sunny days and hot sticky nights before morphing into something a little darker, i.e. burning, looting, the death of protest and the rise of the police state.
It's backed with Ain't It Hard - a slow, funky blues howled from the cold bed of a passionless relationship - and In My Time of Dying - a reworking of the old gospel/blues standard which the band recorded for MOJO magazine's tribute to Led Zeppelin's Physical Graffiti. .
