Kings Go Forth

While we're in the middle of this little mini-soul section here on the blog, we thought that it would be a good time to share a tune from this crack Milwaukee collective Kings Go Forth. Signed to the venerable Luaka Bop, Kings Go Forth's new record The Outsiders Are Back came out Tuesday (4/13). It's an album filled to the brim with rousing full-speed instrumental sections, blasting horns, and gritty vocal performances. With hints of afro-beat and Otis Redding at his loudest, Kings Go Forth have made a pure unadulterated party record. They're sure to be killin live as well -- they hit The Mercury Lounge in NY on the 21st and Southpaw in Brooklyn on the 24th.
