American Love Call
Recommended by our good friend & uber talented graphic designer, Jack Staniland. Just check out our logo, for one example. This album by Durand Jones & the Indications, has been on repeat here at BBHQ.
It evokes both '60s and '70s soul, whilst at the same time calling to mind the work of people like Charles Bradley (with less vocal intensity). If you're looking for the next great soul band and you're up for occasionally being challenged by well-aimed socially conscious lyrics, this is the album for you.
