New York native Moses Patrou has released a catchy 7″ soul single on Soul Tune Records. The warmest of vintage breezes echo from Standby Lover, sweet percussion and a seductive sax solo to ease the single out.
Based in the heart of Stockholm, Soul Tune Records invited the American artist to lay his R&B vocals on a tight backing arrangement, and Moses Patrou delivers on this mellow tempo single. The accessibility of the lyrics makes listening to this tangled love story embraceable, like sliding into a sun-warmed swimming pool.
Flip this baby over and the B-side ‘Good Enough‘, offers another soul caressing groove.
The art of music presented on vinyl and the concentrated listening required is something you should explore. Secondhand tables are cheap and easily found, and time away from the digital world is guaranteed to be rewarding for the mind and soul. Vinyl records also look and feel good!
Soul Tune Records are loyalist to the beauty of vinyl, and this 45 is available on limited edition on Bandcamp ($9). You will also find previously releases on vinyl like the excellent debut album from the Soul Tune Allstars.
Soul Tune Records have quickly established themselves as the new capital of soul music from Scandinavia.
