Monophonics Make Me Happy

San Francisco's own Monophonics are filling up my soul with soul music these days. Their new record, It's Only Us, is a heartfelt rendering of late '60s/early 70's soul that is so fucking good it makes me weep with joy.

It's great to see so many soul bands out there now reviving the genre. Add Monoponics to this list...

Durand Jones and the Indications
Curtis Harding
Michael Kiwanuka
Leon Bridges

...and you have the five great soul bands of 2020 that you should be listening to.
