Descriptions du produit

Nach Nick Waterhouse kommt hier eine neue Band aus US of A, die den Soul und R&B hat. St. Paul & The Broken Bones erregten bereits viel Aufmerksamkeit aufgrund ihrer energetischen Live Shows, von Frontmann Paul Janeway angeführt. Und alein dieser Frontmann ist die Show schon wert: Ein kleiner untersetzter und sehr charismatischer Brillenträger, der mehr Soul und Groove allein in seinen weissen Slippern hat als das Gros dessen, was man sonst so sieht. Die schweißgetränkten Shows haben viele überzeugt, darunter auch das Paste Magazine, die die Band als "2013 Best Of What's Next" Künstler kürten und NPR Music, die das Album in ihre Rubrik "Under The Radar Album Preview" aufnahmen. "Half The City" strotzt von Schlüsselelementen des Memphis Soul, Muscle Shoals R&B und von Motown, die die Grundlage bilden für Janes expressive Vocals.

HASH(0x9707f03c) étoiles sur 5 St Paul & The Broken Bones - The Power of Soul 12 mars 2014
Par Red on Black - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
They say if you wait ages for a bus then two will come along, this maxim now appears to apply to American Soul Bands. The emergence last year of the Alabama Shakes and their mighty lead singer vocalist Brittany Howard a veritable force of nature brought real cheer to those who like their music soulfully stirred and infused with Muscle Shoals devout passion. The owners of Single Lock Records sit in this tradition including John Paul White of the now defunct Civil Wars and Ben Tanner of said Alabama Shakes. In signing St Paul & The Broken Bones it must have felt that Christmas came early.

The band hail from Alabama and its six members come fully formed and schooled in the best traditions of the music of Otis Redding, Sam Cooke, O V Wright and Al Green. The band however are not revivalists for like the Shakes they are regenerators breathing new life into a timeless tradition that should ever so frequently bang on our doors and demand substantial quality time on the stereo. The lead singer of the band is another surprise package. Indeed Paul Janeway might do for soul what Paul Potts did for opera. He is an unlikely frontman, looking like a mix of Huey Long and Bill Gates yet singing like his black soul heroes with a voice which he should insure for millions. He is a star in the making and once you have heard that voice you are going to return time after time. "Half the City" is the bands debut and in terms of consistency it tops "Boy and Girls" by the Alabama Shakes in terms of sheer joy de vivre and deep down desire.

Play this album to any musical acquaintance and the first astonished words uttered will be "Who the f*** are they"? Check out Janeway's vocal on "Like a Mighty River" with its superb horn backdrop and powerhouse chords and try not to be impressed. This is a vocalist who was trained in the gospel tradition at his local Pentecostalist Church and doesn't it show. Similarly their live standard "Call Me" floats along with an effortless soul groove that could only be the product of a veteran band who have played thousands of club to be this tight and together. Undoubtedly this will be the case as St Paul and the Broken Bones storm every venue they currently play but we would do well not to forget that some of these musicians are straight out of college.

The high voltage soul on "Half the City" is relentless. Echoes of Otis Redding abound on the slow emotional ballad "Broken Bones & Pocket Change" an absolute showstopper of a song. It is matched by the wonderful closer "Its Midnight" all dark and burning with passionate intensity. For a bit of lighter relief turn to the funky title track and the almost Dexys sounding "Dixie Rothko" with a huge Janeaway vocal. Overall this is an album which wears its heart on its sleeve, it want to entertain, to pull at your emotions and to make you punch the air. It is a soul debut to die for and makes of polyvinyl chloride had better stock up because "Half the City" is going to exhaust their supplies when it hits the shops.

HASH(0x9707f090) étoiles sur 5 Very good album that should have been great 19 février 2014
Par Carl Sanders - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD Achat vérifié
I pre-ordered this album based on the great Youtube videos I watched. The music is at the same time original and reminiscent of the great Stax sound. "St. Paul has a unique and great sounding voice--and therein lies the problem. The problem--and it seems to be rampant throughout the music industry, is the overproducing and unbalance of many modern albums. The first song on the album, "I'm Torn Up", is a prime example of this. The band is tight; the song is great: and yet, the singer's voice is drowned out by the producer who chose to apparently drown out the singer's great voice with his "wall of sound". Where is the balance in the instruments and the voice? Turn the music down a tad and turn the singer's voice up a tad. Despite this glaring flaw, the album is full of great music.

HASH(0x9707f36c) étoiles sur 5 Classic Soul/R&B sound 18 février 2014
Par Kevin P. Fahy - Publié sur Amazon.com
Achat vérifié
Classic R&B sound played it this morning while working from home. My roommate (who grew up in Chicago) thought this was from the 70s. Said it reminded him of classic Motown or Stax records he grew up listening to as a kid. Paul Janeway's vocals are classic to the soul roots of the Muscle Shoals heyday. They band is a talented and tight outfit. Solid in their own right I believe you expect to hear big things from this band in the next few years.

HASH(0x9707f894) étoiles sur 5 This white boy's got soul! 17 juillet 2014
Par Charlene - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD Achat vérifié
After seeing these guys on the CBS Saturday morning show, I checked their schedule online. I very rarely go to concerts, but do enjoy the experience more at smaller venues. Unfortunately, they weren't scheduled to come here, so I ordered the CD. While the music is great, I have to say watching these guys perform, particularly the lead singer when he cuts loose with his fancy footwork, and as much the fact that you don't expect that voice, that rhythm, that soul from a white boy who looks like he'd work in a cubicle on a tech farm, well let's say seeing them perform is as entertaining as the music. If they ever do come here, I'll go see them. These guys need more TV appearances.
As an aside: I hope no one is offended by my calling this guy a "boy." It is in no way intended to be derogatory of him or anyone else. It just seems appropriate to this white woman old enough to be his mother.

HASH(0x9707f150) étoiles sur 5 Are you listening...? 13 décembre 2014
Par William P - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Album vinyle
Have you ever heard a band that made you genuinely interested in a particular state in the United States? I am not talking about band names, like Kansas, I mean the music the band creates.

Think about that question. I ask because, thanks to reddit, I was introduced to a band that did just that for me. It aroused a genuine interest to explore not only the music of the state, but to think what possibly could have been going on in that particular state that would result in the music I was listening to.

St. Paul & The Broken Bones is the band. Alabama is the state. Yes, I said Alabama.

I happened upon the full KEXP performance that St. Paul & The Broken Bones gave in Spring of 2014 (well-after that live performance, mind you), and I found myself thinking, "What the f*** is going on in Alabama that even gave these guys the idea to make music like this?!" I do not apologize for the language, my inner dialog has an understanding of context.

Seriously, though. I judged them by their appearance and had no idea before their first song began what the hell I was going to hear, especially after hearing Paul Janeway's (pretty common) Alabama accent introduce "Like a Mighty River." Whatever music I anticipated in those first few seconds, it did not match what I heard.

Janeway's voice is the first thing that hooks you when you hear St. Paul & The Broken Bones, and he really just blows you away. Not to sound mean, but his voice does not come close to matching his doughy, white appearance. After the initial shock of his voice subsides, you realize the instrumentalists are not only solid players, but they are pretty tight as a band. That said, the output of St. Paul & The Broken Bones is analogous to Aristotle's famous quote, "the whole is greater than the sum of the parts." It is just amazing.

I ordered their debut, 180 gram vinyl from Amazon minutes into the performance, and basically spammed the YooToob link to everyone I know that has an appreciation of music.

As Troy Nelson talked to the band during the KEXP performance, I started thinking about the state of Alabama. Other than a few of the people from Alabama mentioned during the interview, I realized I know almost nothing about the state or its music. I have heard a lot of jokes and stereotypes, and I have seen a lot of Bama football (not on purpose), but I really could not imagine a music scene diverse enough to have been the source of this music. Nor could I imagine a couple white kids getting together and concocting this music in Alabama, or anywhere else for that matter.

While I have traveled through Alabama a number of times as the child of an enlisted Air Force member moving around the country during the 1970s and 1980s (or so I have been told, as I tended to be asleep in the backseat of a car or van when that occurred), I have never been to Alabama as an adult, and more importantly, it is never a place I have been to. It has always been a place I have been through.

I cannot say I have ever thought "I would like to learn more about Alabama" before in my life, but after hearing St. Paul & The Broken Bones, I am having that very thought.

Are you listening, Alabama Tourism Department?

P.S. I also had the thought to explore more more live performances by St. Paul & The Broken Bones on YooToob, and recommend you do the same. And buy their album/cd/digital release.
