Stick with this album, give it 5 or 6 listens, and you start to realise why Matthew White and this album is receiving great reviews everywhere.
The reviews reference Muscle Shoals, Southern Funk, Curtis soul, and on first listen you may expect this album to jump out and grab you, but it's alot more subtle and rewarding than that.
After the 3rd or 4th listen you begin to hear the horns more, the amazing string arrangements come to the fore, and the groove is always there, just under the surface.
6th listen it's on constant repeat, and you are in, it's a keeper.
