Red Line Roots on “King of the Fools”

Red Line Roots on “King of the Fools”

Oooooooooh, yes. Smooth like butter on a fresh baked boule of bread. Everything from the velvety vocals, to that deep rolling bass, and the harmony vocals, man the harmony vocals are sexy (not sure if it’s a chick or a dude singing high…regardless, I stand by my comment). I am transported to some different time when soul ruled the radio and you could groove and roll with the sounds of Motown...

TheRevue.ca on EBIUA

By Richard Moses (therevue.ca) Today is throwback Thursday, and that tag would fit Central Massachusetts band The Curtis Mayflower quite well. As a band, The Curtis Mayflower is still in its early days, they released their first full length album, Everything Beautiful is Under Attack on January 28, 2014, but their sound is definitely a throwback to the late 60’s and early 70’s.

(via: www.dirtyimpound.com) What makes you tick, darling? What makes you sick, darling? Clockwork hearts have broken parts but there’s a fix, darling. Feel can’t be manufactured. A lot of other stuff can be faked or Pro-Tooled these days but feel, the essential intangible to really good music, only occurs naturally. It’s the thing that makes one’s hair stand up long before one understands why....
