Fitz and the Tantrums - Pickin' Up The Pieces
Throughout the record's ten tracks, Fitz and his crew inject life and fun into vintage rhythms and melodies. The vocal performances from Fitzpatrick and Scaggs are heartfelt and explosive, and work best when the two sing side by side. On the tracks that bandleader Fitzpatrick appears solely on, his voice evokes enough attitude and spunk to make each song sound uniquely fresh. And when it comes to song structure, Fitz shows his craftiness, bringing back the lost art of the three-minute song and making each hook infectiously catchy. On the production side, Pickin' Up The Pieces relies heavy on the sound of vintage organ and crisp drums. Through the band's makeup doesn't boast a guitar, the vast use of James Kings' ardent saxophone makes up for it exceptionally well. Each song on Pickin' Up The Pieces features a nice full sound, and when matched with beautifully written songs and memorable hooks, it's a recipe for greatness.
The album pays tribute to the age-old techniques of melodic content and great songwriting, but incorporates its own creative flare within it. It's a ride down Motown memory lane, with a few new quirks. If you're looking for the revival of soul, then you've found it in Pickin Up The Pieces. (www.baeblemusic.com)
