Sounds | Durand Jones - That Feeling



Bij de eerste single was het swingen en shaken. Deze keer houdt Jones het héél ingetogen en wat melancholisch, tot halfweg That Feeling groots en vol wordt om dan terug te downsizen en naar het eind toe helemaal open te breken. Wat een prachtige song. Vintage soul, zoals ik het héél graag hoor. Bovendien krijgen we opnieuw een mooie kortfilm erbij. De man zelf omschrijft zijn muziek als "magnolias on a hot July day in Louisiana".


Wait Til I Get Over verschijnt op 5 mei 2023 via Dead Oceans.


Ter Info


Known as one of the singers and principal songwriters of Durand Jones & the Indications, this solo debut pulls Jones from that highly collaborative band to a place far more vulnerable and singular, and affirms him as the modern vanguard of Southern Black music. Much of Wait Til I Get Over is built on Jones’ relationship to his hometown of Hillaryville, Louisiana, a town first established as a form of reparations to previously enslaved Black Americans. The town, and Jones’ reflections, are a tangle of contradictions: the pristine beauty and the ragged roads; his teenage desire to leave and his adult desire to honor his roots; the plantation history and the ups and downs of the Black community that first made Hillaryville flourish, then suffered through its slow, systemic ravaging. facebook
