    Fresh of the press and following the release of "Walk On By" and "I Am The Black Gold Of The Sun", we are proud to offer up another gem reworked from the Music Sales catalog, this time digging even deeper into our cultural history with the haunting poetic verses of Billie Holiday's "Strange Fruit" sung beautifully by our friend and comrade, soul crooner Raul Midon!

    In honor of Black History Month, we have to decided to release the single on Feb 1st (on band camp and iTunes), but will stream it on sound cloud this week leading up to the release date.

    In classic Decoders fashion, we decided to flip the arrangement into a St. James Infirmary Jazz style with dub and cumbia undertones...Raul's amazing vocal delivery and masterful guitar work is heavily featured in the song. This particular version is also inspired by Jeff Buckley's cover of the tune, which was recorded in the early 90's by Liza Richardson at Santa Monica's KCRW studios. Check out the link here:
