This is the Southern soul record that everyone heard about in 2014. Having first discovered the Broken Bones as an absolutely stunning live act, we had big expectations for this record. Probably too big. But there’s no denying the fact that the spirit of Otis Redding seems to be living these days in the body of young Paul Janeway, who grew up in a holy-roller church in little Chelsea, Ala. They recorded their album in Muscle Shoals and mixed it at legendary FAME Studios — the very source of the world-shaking soul music that came out of North Alabama in the 1960s. And Janeway delivers every song with the fervor of a Pentecostal preacher.

Songs:
Like a Mighty River,
It’s Midnight,
Call Me,
Grass Is Greener,
