If you’re paying close attention you may recall that one of the acts that I raved about from last year’s Newport Folk Festival was a Houston based soul band called The Suffers. They were such a powerful presence that it’s hard to imagine that they haven’t been doing this for a long time. In reality though they’ve only been playing together for about 5 years and just last week put out their first full length album.
It is a wonderful album all around, but “Midtown” is probably my favorite song from it. I love its groovy, smooth R&B vibe. This band is fantastic and if they are ever anywhere near you I can’t recommend seeing them live highly enough.
