Smokin' Soul Strut

What a retro pleasure I get from this week's song, 'Breakin' The Chains Of Love,' by the 60s-Stax-Northern Soul-influenced LA combo Fitz and The Tantrums..

This seven-piece band is built around the soul-drenched vocals of Michael Fitzpatrick and Noelle Scaggs, and includes and old church organ and a horn section.

Such earthy vocals and atmopsherics are a real treat in this day and age... They are really dynamite live, and they are fairly new on the scene, but with a flawless, breathtaking EP and debut album to their credit...

Watch the band sing, boogie and jive their hearts out through 'Breakin' The Chains, and then talk a bit.... A quarter pound of edamame, two shots of tequila, and some twizzlers? Hmmm.

Blue-tinged video for their soulful new single 'Money Grabber..'

A third helping: the equally lovely 'Winds of Change'...
