I’ve been meaning to write about St. Paul & The Broken Bones since my man Carter sent them my way. The problem is, I can’t stop listening to them. If you like Alabama Shakes, Mayer Hawthorne or Pickwick, you’re soon to be obsessed with this six piece R&B/Soul outfit by way of Birmingham, AL. Lead singer Paul Janeway draws you in with a voice that oozes with soul and grit over inescapable, nostalgic melodies. The band’s EP, Greetings From St. Paul & The Broken Bones, may only be 4 tracks, but is a balanced affair with the upbeat swing of “Sugar Dyed Honey Pants” and gut wrenching poignancy of “Broken Bones and Pocket Change”. Download Greetings From St. Paul & The Broken Bones (NoiseTrade, Bandcamp) and stream tracks below. Their sure to have a big rest of 2013 and beyond.
