The duo Vinyl Soul are mellow to the max, organic, low-key, humanistic in flavor, not to mention possessed of a humorous spirit. The mid-tempo “Cali” paints a vivid scene of chilling at the beach, margaritas unlimited, palm trees all around. The lead singer shows his classic soul-crooner range on “One Day,” and is effectively supported by a church-like choir. While the previous two songs omit drums and hard beats (letting the bass do the heavy lifting), “I Love You When I’m Drunk” is an engaging blues-rocker complete with honking harmonica and a full band, including drummer. If there was any doubt of these players’ nimble musicianship, this song dispels it. We wanted to hear much more than the 2:11 allotted to it here!
