"Brilliant first album"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Love this album can't believe the varied genre of music…these guys can play and sing anything and do it so well.


Highly anticipated debut album from L.A.B, the new power house group from the legendary Kora brothers Brad and Stu plus the extraordinary talent of Joel Shadbolt on lead guitar and vocals and Ara Adams-Tamatea from the mighty Katchafire on bass.

The pedigree and musicianship of L.A.B is undeniable.

The L.A.B musical blend is captivating and invigorating – trademark Kora grooves blending seamlessly with Joel Shadbolt’s blues roots and Ara Adams-Tamatea’s dub reggae experience to create their own sound entirely.

L.A.B features 12 tracks which brilliantly showcase the multiple sides to the L.A.B sound – a unique blend of electronic funk and soulful rock, punctuated by exceptional melodies that stick with the listener for days.

L.A.B was produced by Lee Prebble (Fly My Pretties, The Phoenix Foundation) at The Surgery

For fans of Kora! Kora! Kora!, Katchafire
