Third Coast Kings - out on Record Kicks

Third Coast Kings
Third Coast Kings - Third Coast Kings
(CD/LP/Digital) Record Kicks RKX039, 2012-03-12

This self-titled album of deep funk & soul 8-piece combo from Ann Arbor/Detroit Third Coast Kings is a 21st Century Blaxploitation dream come true. Especially on explosive and gritty instrumentals such as Come On, which seems to come out directly from a high-octane 70's flick, Cop It Proper and its heavy backbeat, the Mexicani chaser On The Reel, the Shaft-on-coke Case Quarter or the deep & soulful wah-wahness of Summalove. Some of the vocal tracks in between feel like fast breathers (Give Me Your Love, Emcee Marie, Roughneck)… well until the rough Tonic Stride kicks in, devastating the funk breakers dancefloor with its merciless guitar ride. Listening to this LP laying in the sofa won't work. Make some room and bring some friends first!
