Memphis, Tennessee five-piece Southern Avenue release their debut album in the form ‘Southern Avenue’ and the lyrically minimal introduction ‘Don’t Give Up’ is a gospel/blues slab of southern roots. The plaintive ‘It’s Gonna Be Alright’ has tinges – musically – of Leon Bridges while their version of Ann Peebles ‘Slipped, Tripped and Fell In Love’ is a pulsating cover. They draw on Al Green influences on the beat ballad ‘Love Me Right’, ‘Wildflower’ is a more spacious, dreamy mid tempo effort that borders Jazz but breaks into a blues mode in the second half while ‘Peace Will Come’ returns the band back to that swampy, rootsy sound that they are lauded for.
