We caught this gem of an album coming off our presses from a Tennessee band called The Distribution. They’re a blend of old school funk and ghetto soul-pop which results in Motown nostalgia with a shot of LCD. Their music arises from and is heavily influenced by old soul, but is much more vital and modern than any sort of nostalgia.
It is not hard to love soul music and it is that love that brought these 7 musicians together from such disparate backgrounds as indie-rock, old black gospel and electro-funk. Though drawing from such familiar touch tones as Stevie Wonder and James Brown, they embraced their various sensibilities and the music took on a life and form of its own. With the sole goal of making music that moves the body and heart at once, they became The Distribution.
