Aloe Blacc - Good Things (Stones Throw)

Melding classic soul heart-wrenching guts with modern production techniques, this album from Aloe Blacc is set to win a place in the heart of many listeners. A lot has been made of the radio and dancefloor destroying lead single, I Need A Dollar, but this album also contains a number of other gems. These include the dramatic Take Me Back, touching You Make Me Smile and thoughtful If I. Move over Hawthorne and all the other dull ‘modern’ retro soul and funk outfits, Aloe Blacc is the real deal.
