ESG "A South Bronx Story" (2000)

Somehow, sisters from the Bronx ended up recording dark skittery minimalist funk.  This music owed more to the early post punk scene than it did to any obvious soul/funk pedigree.  How does this happen?  Of course they came to be reevaluated through the side door.  Their songs were used widely as samples in the early 90s.  This music is still vibrant and fresh sounding.  Highly recommended.
