Album Review: Kings Go Forth, "The Outsiders Are Back"

Vintage soul sounds from Milwaukee, but don't think Daptone. These guys have a lush early 70s Chicago Curtis Mayfield sound, occasionally venturing into a mid 70s Harold Melvin float or even freaky "Here My Dear"/Shuggie Otis experimentation. This percussion section is the best I've heard in a long time. Definitely give this a listen.

Play: 1+++ and 2+++(wow, driving!), 5++ (nice Philly feel), 6+(neat cover), 7++ (downright disco), 8+ (ska horns)

P.S. Artwork by Mingering Mike! (the art on the actual cover, that is)
