Now We've Got Trouble: Vintage Trouble - The Bomb Shelter Sessions
I'd describe Vintage Trouble as a throwback soul/R&B/rock and roll band. But really, why try to improve on the band's own description -- "Live-wired, straight-shootin, dirty-mouth'd pelvis-pushin' juke music ...." The band consists of Ty Taylor, Nalle Colt, Rick Barrio Dill and Richard Danielson, and were formed in early 2010 in Los Angeles by Taylor and Colt. The music produced by Vintage Trouble is exciting not because it is new or innovative, but rather because they take a classic American sound and faithfully and energetically bring it to date. And Taylor's vocals are an absolute knockout. The band has just self-released The Bomb Shelter Sessions. Give it a listen; it will remind you of that great Otis Redding era of American soul.
