Fitz & the Tantrums: Pickin' Up the Pieces
Buy! - (Dangerbird)
This LA-based band’s debut full-length is a first-rate set of ‘60s-influenced soul-pop with strong roots in Motown and other kinds of Northern Soul. Fitz & co. evoke that classic soul era with a guitar-less sound featuring keyboards, bass, drums, sax, occasional flute and plenty of handclaps, along with strong lead vocals from Michael Fitzpatrick complemented by Noelle Scaggs’ equally powerful backing vocals. 8/20/2010 - Don Yates
