Motenko EPIn the wake of three singles last year – debut On Your Level and its successors Silhouette and Follow Through, Austin TX-based outfit Motenko finally release their full self-titled EP. The tracks on the EP form a chronological narrative about a time in bandleader Micah Motenko’s personal life but with a universal lyrical appeal. Pitching things somewhere between the sounds of an early sixties Sam Cooke and an early 2000s-ish D’Angelo, the EP explores death and heartbreak across five tracks for which the band’s blend of old and (relatively) modern ‘groove-driven soul music’ is the perfect vehicle.
