Tour De Vaap

A compilation of music from 417

Kings Go Forth is a very good band that makes very good music, and their album is called The Outsiders are Back. The vocals recall the soulful flair of Otis Redding, but the real appeal of this group comes from their fresh take on a classic sound, soul. The horn section blares, the drums kick, and the funk flows like water. These guys remind me of Antibalas Afrobeat Orchestra, but less political, and less Afro-influenced, more straight-ahead throwback funk-n-soul. I was surprised when I first heard this record; I didn’t know what to expect from a group with a name like Kings Go Forth. I couldn’t make sense at first of such a seemingly random name, being accustomed to the literary, artsy names of so many new bands. But that didn’t really matter, because they kick ass. Check this band out for a breath of fresh air if you’re tired of new indie music, this’ll take you back to some of the great music of the 60’s and 70’s.  Listen to the single “I Don’t Love You Know More” below.
