Neue Truth & Soul: The Olympians – How Can I Love

The Olympians - How Can I Love (Now that your Gone)The Olympians - Stand Tall

Truth & Soul, das kleine aber feine New Yorker Label vom Musiker- und Produzenten-Duo Leon Michels und Jeff Silverman hat eine neue Single veröffentlicht: „How Can I Love (Now That You’re Gone)“ von The Olympians ist ein wunder, wunderschönes melancholisches Sommer Stück, das von der Atmosphäre her perfekt nach New York passt.

Man hört die Menahan Street Band des Daptone Unter-Labels Dunham sehr gut heraus. Kein Wunder, es spielen ja auch eine Menge Musiker in beiden Bands mit, wie oben erwähnter Leon Michels und eben Toby Pazner:

Toby Pazner, long time keyboard/vibe player on many T&S releases, has come into his own and delivered a sweet little 45 under the band name, The Olympians. The 45 represents Pazner’s musical aesthetic and features El Michels on horns and other members of the NY funk elite.

With a mixture of soulful sounds reminiscent of Isaac Hayes, Mickey and the Soul Generation, and Curtis Mayfield, The Olympians are well suited for a lazy Sunday, a trip to the beach or any pensive moment. Recorded in his bedroom on a Tascam 388, The Olympians give us that gritty yet sweet sound that can only come from NY. Pazner has been hard at work cranking out a plethora of goodness and this is just a taste of what is coming from The Olympians. The A side “How Can I Love (Now That You’re Gone)” is a meditative piece full of soulful vibes, piano, and wistful horns, that are reminiscent of the feelings any lover gets after heart break. Side B entitled “Stand Tall” features Michels on flute and Leonhart on trumpet backed by a hard hitting beat and tough guitars.
