4.90 40

Spacey soul from this enigmatic duo – a pair who've got a groove that nicely fits their trippy name – and a cosmic approach overall, one that's somewhere in the territory of Georgia Anne Muldrow, and some of the more adventurous talents in the underground! There's a real edge to some of these tracks – a bit more hardness than warmth, which keeps things interesting – and, given the Sub Pop placement of the record, almost takes us back to the early 80s days of some of the more creative soul/crossover projects from the east coast scene. Rhythms are nicely offbeat – a good change from the usual beats and keys – and production helps the vocals crackle, and settle down nicely amidst the electricity. Titles include "Deeper", "Sweat", "Juiced", "Enchantruss", "Needs", "Crash", "Natural E", and "Earthseed".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Wonderful work from Gregory Porter – easily one of the best new jazz singers to emerge in the past decade or so, and one whose approach is soulful enough to rival the greats of the 70s! There's echoes here of Bill Withers, Gil Scott-Heron, and Al Jarreau – and like all those artists, ... CD
