RIYL: OK Go, Hot Hot Heat, Chromeo
Label: Soul Step Records
I write about every release from Soul Step Records.¬† Run by only one fella from Cincinnati, Soul Step has picked up their output pace significantly over the last year, expanding their catalog into chamber folk, soul and sweet sweet indie pop.¬† It’s been a¬†pleasure¬†to see this little label sell out of almost every limited pressing they’ve done and I always look forward to hearing the next band they pick up.
If you’ve been reading Sly a while, you may have heard of Republican Hair.¬† We’ve posted about a few of their 7″s, all quick sellouts, and now they’re ready to get into the full-length game.¬† This new LP contains the full High and Tight EP as well as the 2 tracks from their Prince and Bowie Tribute 7″ and many more candy-coated pop gems.¬† Fans of OK Go’s infectious geetar riffage and Chromeo’s sweaty-loined funk should strap in for a hell of a good time.
There are a few of the white vinyl variants left after the ‘buy’ link, so listen to some of the cuts below¬†while you cruise around the ‘burbs for soccer moms in your¬†2017 Honda Odyssey and make sure you grab a slab before they’re all gone.
