Kind Soul

Damn, that was quick! I told you I'd still be around.
I just got hip to The Stance Brothers via A-Ko (you remember him, right?). This is new funk/soul (or as they call it, "garage jazz") done right. Someone give up the goods on how they recorded those drums! Cottdamn.

Here's a couple joints from their album Kind Soul on Ricky-Tik Records out of Finland. The first is a top-notch cover of Cannonball Adderley's "Capricon" and an original called "The Strong One" which was only available on 7".

Glad to see folks are still making records like this that have soul and don't come off as contrived or corny. The vinyl version is coming soon, but you can cop the CD/MP3's here in the meantime. Hope to hear more from them in the future.

After reading a comment left in this post I did some reading and found out this was all made by one dude...

" Ricky-Tick Records released The Stance Brothers' debut album, Kind Soul in Finland in September 2007. [3] Teppo "Teddy Rok" Mäkynen produced and recorded the album himself and played all the instruments."

Been listening to this a lot lately.

Just to give you all an update on what's going on with your dude, I've wrapped up my remix for Quantic and I won't be doing any other side project work for a while. I'm about to lock myself in the studio indefinitely. It's long overdue. So, with that said, I'll still post from time to time, but the blog (and the internet in general) is gonna have to take a backseat for a minute. Thanks to everyone who's been keeping up with me on here. I WILL RETURN
