The Arcs: Yours, Dreamily
Buy! - (Nonesuch)
The debut album from this band led by The Black Keys frontman Dan Auerbach is a gritty set of psych-tinged soul and funky blues-rock with fuzzy guitars, moody organ, occasional horns, funk and hip hop rhythms fleshing out well-crafted songs of lost love. The stellar backing band includes Richard Swift, saxophonist Leon Michels, Dap-Kings drummer Homer Steinweiss and bassist Nick Movshon, with other luminaries in guest roles including Tchad Blake, guitarist Kenny Vaughan and the New York all-female mariachi band Mariachi Flor de Toloache. 9/4/2015 - Don Yates
