The Soul of Soulsavers


I've heard Soulsavers' (MySpace) album, It's Not How Far You Fall, It's the Way You Land a few times now as well as their awesome summer mix, Smoking & Drinking On a Tuesday Night several times through now, and I just can't place 'em!

The U.K. duo's sophomore effort features "grunge rock progenitor" Mark Lanegan, and I think that says a lot about the style. It's grungy, gritty, and pretty chaotic, but in this soulful, soothing sort of way. In the noise and saw-tooth vocals there is sense and peace, and maybe a little jazz and funk, too!

The album is being released in the States on October 16, so pick it up! Samples below ...
Soulsavers - Paper Money

Vocalist Mark Lanegan accompanied by U.K. music sensation Soulsavers offer a masterpiece album. The soul-bearing lyrics and passionte emotion of songs offer a calm before the storm. Rawness and vulnerability at its best. Folk and grunge fused with soul and funk leave listeners in a place of peace and serenity.
