Sometimes, you need to feel good. “When livin’ becomes too hard…I need an angel on my shoulder/Somebody watching over/’Cause I need a win…”
Mama’s Gun—a band that shares its name with the second (and best) album by Erykah Badu—are here to tell you that R and B still matters, and it can still make you feel good. Yeah, this is an extremely retro album, but it’s a welcome, refreshing one that feels completely original. Moving easily between 1960s soul, funk, and a taste of jazz and disco…Oh! And is that the slightest hint of reggae at the start of “Strangers on a Street?”
The message is consistent and clear: Music makes life a better place.
