I love soul music. I love it with all of my heart and, well, my soul. Durand Jones and the Indications are keeping the flame alive for soul lovers everywhere in the most spectacular of ways. Their second full length, American Love Call, just dropped and it is wonderful. It's more than just the Album of the Week. It's a contender for Album of the Year. It's that fucking good.
Here's the opening track...
And the whole rest of the album is just as magnificent. I feel like I'm in the 1970's and Marvin Gaye is making albums again! Who knew that Bloomington, Indiana (home of John Mellencamp) could produce another amazing artist?
