The York Street Hustle, Cruelty. This is not only the debut EP from the 10-piece Philadelphia ensemble that bills its sound as “Foot Stomping House Rocking Hip Shaking 1960s Soul.” For Max Ochester’s reissue label, Brewerytown Records, it’s also a foray into releasing newly recorded music. The four-track set opens with the slinky, self-penned title tune, followed by a horn-fired workout called “All Beak” and a sweet version of the Magic Tones’ 1968 rarity “There’s Nothing Better Than Love,” in instrumental and vocal versions.
