Sweet, sweet soul music is what makes the world go around and the new “American Love Call” LP from Durand Jones & The Indications is just the roller coaster ride to make our hearts beat and adrenaline rush. From the first listen, “Don’t You Know” sets the tone for what will be an incredible full length that will make your ears stand at attention and deserves plenty of spins. While most labels are focused on closing 2018 in a strong way, Colemine Records is already ahead of the game by a few months and focusing on 2019 with their lineup of releases.
“Durand Jones & the Indications aren’t looking backwards. Helmed by foil vocalists in Durand Jones and drummer Aaron Frazer, the Indications conjure the dynamism of Jackie Wilson, Curtis Mayfield, AND the Impressions. Even with an aesthetic steeped in the golden, strings-infused dreaminess of early ‘70s soul, the Indications’ sophomore LP, American Love Call, is planted firmly in the present, with the urgency of this moment in time.”
