Adrian Younge presents Venice Dawn: Something About April
Buy! - (Wax Poetics)
Something About April is the supremely smooth new album of cinematic, throwback soul/funk/R&B from self-taught musician and recording engineer Adrian Younge, previously known for his excellent original score/soundtrack to the 2008 blaxploitation flick Black Dynamite. Performing for this record under the Venice Dawn hat, Younge cooks up consistently solid, moody, sexy, psychedelic soul with the help of some sultry female vocalists and balances everything out with groovy analog-heavy instrumentals that carry a smoky hip-hop foundation and are impressive in their own right. 1/23/2012 - Alex
