Crushed Velvet & The Velveteers? Man, that is a lot of velvet! It’s also what happens when Soulive drummer Alan Evans swaps the stix for an axe and ropes in soul diva Kim Dawson along with a host of mates to create a Good Thang. Said ‘thang’ is of course, soulful and funky, taking the form of a chugging neck-snapper replete with guitar chanks, organ stabs, horns and lashings of sax – tenor, alto and baritone. The record will be out on 45 and arrives some way ahead of a CV&TV long player.
(Out now on digital HERE – ltd. 45 to follow later in the year)
