    Sometimes it feels as if LA-based hip-hop crew Jurassic 5 have been dormant for as long as the actual dinosaurs. The group’s last single, the White Stripes-sampling “The Way We Do It”, came back in 2014 following an eight-year period of inactivity. At least this time they only waited two years before dropping another new single: “Customer Service”, a funky and undeniably fresh track that proves Jurassic 5 is no legacy act.

    The track lifts its walking bassline from Edwin Birdsong’s 1971 soul-funk cut “The Spirit Of Do…Do”, but the verses deal with a dilemma — bad customer service — that any modern listener can relate to. One thing’s for sure: Customer dissatisfaction has never sounded this cool.

    Listen in to the track below, which is available as a pay-what-you-want download for a limited time on Jurassic 5’s official website. Scroll down to check out the dates for the group’s upcoming summer tour.
