Every now and then, something pops up in your mailbox that makes it worth digging through all the stuff you DON’T want to feature on the site. One such reward comes in the form of Larry g(eEE)’s “Yo Mama”. Larry is a singer/songwriter from Dallas whose sound is fully in step with the live-band soul revival that’s taken place recently, bringing national attention to artists like Sharon Jones & The Dap Kings and Black Joe Lewis & The Honeybears.
The good thing about this song is that it’s not just a groove. The band is definitely kickin’ on this one, but there’s also a solid lyric and a fantastic hook. Not bad for a new jack, huh? Make sure you check out Larry’s debut EP Weekends when it drops digitally in early December. I’m sure you’ll be hearing more about this guy in the future.
Shout out to the folks at Culture Brats, who think this song is the bees knees also.
