Delicious, deep-fried summer soul


In the absence of Duffy or Winehouse, how about some alternative
scorching summer soul – retro style.

The Mynabirds are fronted by Oregon-based singer/songwriter Laura
Burhenn and do a neat line in Motown-meets-country-meets-rock-and-roll, with a healthy dollop of Stax horns thrown in for good measure.

There are also nods to Dusty Springfield and Bobbie Gentry, too.

If you like the sound of that, then you can download the rather tasty
Let The Record Go for free here:

if (FlashDetect.installed) { $(‘flash_embed-hHicDCazes’).show(); $(‘quicktime_embed-hHicDCazes’).hide(); } else { $(‘quicktime_embed-hHicDCazes’).show(); $(‘flash_embed-hHicDCazes’).hide(); }

Apparently Laura wanted to make a record that sounded “like Neil Young
doing Motown”. The album, What We Lose In The Fire, We Gain In The
Flood, has a damn good go.

I’m digging this delicious, deep-fried soul sound.
