Houston based multi-piece The Suffers, lead by the powerful voice of Kam Franklin, have delivered a strong second album that deserves its place in the top soul releases of the year. The timeless, vintage full band sound, the tight melodies steeped in references to a golden past and the dynamic tones of the lead vocalist combine to create a set that will be on repeat play for a long time. The sprawling ‘I Think I love You’ is sun drenched soul with jazz tints, the playful ‘Do Whatever’ is a bouncy, light hearted and uplifting groove while the poly rhythmic ‘The One About Sace’ allows Kam’s incredible vocals to shine on a superbly inventive, infectious tune that is impossible not to move to. The pacey, summery groove of ‘What You Said’ has that Incognito style percussion and keys vibe, the more laid back ‘All I Wanna Do’ and ‘Remain’ excel in their use of space while ‘Charlotte’ and ‘After The Storm’ are good ballad duets. ‘Mammas’ is a stunning crossover gem that sees Kam slipping into that throaty Anita Baker style of delivery while the soft swagger of ‘You Only Call’ is a mellow groover that bubbles away under the surface. They close out this 15 track set with stunning southern beat ballad ‘Won’t Be Here Tomorrow’. Superb album. Essential.
