GENRE | BREAK OUT THE WINE
VERDICT | AND LIE DOWN ON THIS SOFT, SOFT RUG
LABEL | SOUL CLAP RECORDS
RELEASE | 5.13.13
Boston, you’re looking fine tonight,
and not all dance parties have to take place in crowded nightclubs. Sometimes you can get moving right in your own low-lit living room, in front of a fireplace, with someone you know already. But could know a little better.
Our hometown’s a sexy place, something it doesn’t always get enough credit for. And it’s also full of fantastic dance music. Leave it to Soul Clap to remind us of both at the same time, with the debut of their new compilation album, Dancing on the Charles.
Named after a legendary series of parties the pair threw in the late ’00s, the album is a celebration of Boston’s talent, while also being the kind of sultry, seductive dance music that Soul Clap themselves are known for. You’ll find slow, bouncing basslines, tastefully reverbed cymbals, and yes, husky voices behooving you to do various things with your body.
Springtime is in full swing now, so it might just be time to crack open that vintage white. Enjoy the weather during the day, Boston.
But at night, enjoy the finer things.
