I’ve come to find, when listening to new music, that your overall opinion on the project will ultimately depend on your mood before going into it. This morning I had a serious web site scare with dorshmusic, but it really just made me realize how much I value the site, the people who contribute, and the people who submit.
I’ve had Dutch duo Fuel Box playing all morning, and alluding to my aforementioned mood, let’s just say they turned my frown upside down. Their sound combines old soul, blues, dub and modern hip-hop into catchy, psychedelic, soul pop songs. In my opinon, I can hear influences from acts such as Nightmares on Wax “Bits & Bytes”, “So much soul”, The Black Keys “Get out”,”What you do for love”, and Jamiroquai “Cool”, “One Day”. There are definitely reggae undertones all throughout the album as well, which is super cool!!! I can’t single out any one track just yet as a favorite, but all the ones I took time reference above are fresh. I’m excited to see what else is to come from Producer Joshua Boon, and singer Remy Britsemmer. For now fulljoy the sounds and remember, “you don’t know what you have until it’s gone (or almost gone :P)”. Bless up!!
