new york’s dazzlingly original joan wasser unveils a collection of quirky, eclectic pop songs that take inspiration from the sound & atmosphere of classic soul albums.

wasser has looked to the legacies of aretha franklin, tammy terrell & marvin gaye to create an album that marries her emotional lyrics with lush, upbeat arrangements. reggie watts & joseph arthur pop up on the album’s joyful doo-wop accapella title track. watts can also be heard scatting on ‘holy city’, a motown influenced number inspired by new love & a trip to jerusalem. elsewhere on the album other ‘classic’ influences are audible, such as the barry white-esque sensuality of ‘good together’ & the gentle reggae of album closer ‘ask me’. for fans of cat power, st.vincent & feist. "a deeper turn into a sparse, less hurried take on '60s southern soul" 4/5 - q "a fascinating & rich record" - nme.
