Mighty nice work from The Soul Snatchers – a Dutch group, but one who’ve got a deep funk sound that matches a lot of combos in the American underground in recent years! These guys start with a very old school approach to the groove – a sound steeped in older modes of Memphis and Muscle Shoals – with all the burning organ lines, funky guitar, and soulful horns that reference might imply – and vocals are in English throughout, sung by a male singer with a surprisingly strong, raspy sound that comes across better than we remember from the group’s last record! Easily their best material so far – with titles that include “Keep Workin”, “Just Like Sly”, “Stop Fightin”, “Use It Up”, “Little Love”, “Foolishness”, and “Humpin & Bumpin”. The album is available in all possible formats: cd, digital and as a vinyl LP including a download code. Check the options and place your order, time to get funky!
It took a while and we’ve all been waiting for it but now it’s about to happen: the Soul Snatchers third album is finally on it’s way. As we speak the albums are being pressed, on cd as well as on vinyl. The release date is set for March 3rd 2016 so hopefully everything will be ready. Whatever happens… the album will be ready digitally. You can even pre-order the album right now and get access to two brand new songs, that way you’ll be one of the first to get hold of the new album. So feel free to check out their bandcamp page and check out the new songs. If you like what you hear, don’t forget to tell your friends ? The album will also be available in this shop when it is released.
