 Silk Rhodes: Pains

Silky Cuts

Lo-fi R’n’B Baltimore duo empress with debut self titled LP on Stones Throw. Silk Rhodes are both original and classic, pulling on old school funk and soul grooves, Curtis Mayfield, Al Green, Sly and the Family Stone, Delfonics etc. as well as recent influences, D’Angelo, Gonjasufi, GayngsStepkids etc. Some of tracks are very short and fractured but the lo-fi snippets are are part of the fleeting album’s charm and exuberance.

A stunning debut that covers a lot of ground and genres yet retains a signature sound throughout. The outstanding Pains is about as lazy as it gets as the beat plods along to a searing Rhodes organ and raw soulful vocals. Faces 2 Face ramps up the groove in a funk pop number. Realtime goes all hip-hip beats and R’n’B sass. Hold Me Down is just pure beauty, like Shuggie Otis slowed right down to a snails pace, this is stoner soul. Personal use pounds into a french house rhythm reminiscent of Etienne de Crécy’s Super Discout Vol.1, then 2 thirds in the song changes back to soul croons that Sumach Ecks (Gonjasufi) would relate to. Finishing off with the uplifting sound of The System, the perfect end to great LP and very highly recommended.

Essential tracks: Pains, Face 2 Face, Realtime, Hold Me Down
