Gabriel Garzón-Montano brings the soul vibes on this new Stones Throw release (music video)
I always approach every new Stones Throw artist with a certain amount of trepidation. Just cause I love the label doesn’t mean that I love everything the label has put out. So when I first saw the cover for Gabriel Garzón-Montano’s cover, I assumed his music would something akin to like Pyramid Vitra or one of Peanut Butter Wolf’s odd-ball side projects. But after giving this song a chance, I gotta say that I really need to stop making assumptions. At least with this song, Stones Throw might have found another super star along the lines of Mayer Hawthorne or Aloe Blacc (remember he used to be signed to Stones Throw?). As far as this song goes, it’s a pretty straight-forward soul number, complete with harmonized vocals, bouncy drums and piano. It doesn’t sound like anything revolutionary but it is done remarkably well. Basically anyone looking for some solid soul music should do themselves a favor and check this out.
