New Throwback R&B


Maybe it’s just the music that I’ve stumbled across lately.  Perhaps I’m just in the mood.  Whatever it may be, I’m a sucker for these throwback/vintage/classic R&B artists who seem to be coming out of the woodwork these days.  It might’ve started with the success of Amy Winehouse, leading to Duffy – and even possibly Adele.  But the old-school R&B sounds from the late 60s to early 70s is definitely appearing more in modern artists, and I dig it.  The classic sound with soulful voices, upbeat music, solid drums and bass, and killer horns.

Here’s a handful of albums you should definitely check out:

Baby Charles – “Baby Charles”

The Heavy – “The House That Dirt Built”

Kings Go Forth – “The Outsiders are Back”

Raphael Saadiq – “The Way I See It”

Mayer Hawthorne “A Strange Arrangement”
