MENAHAN STREET BAND (Daptone) Announce New Album
Lend an ear to the sweet soulful sounds of The Menahan Band on “The Crossing,” the title track to their sophomore album of the same name. The Crossing will be released on October 30th via Daptone Records imprint Dunham Records. The Menahan Band is the house band for the Brooklyn-based label and have received praise for their 2008 debut Make The Road By Walking and for backing Charles Bradley on his 2011 debut album No Time For Dreaming. “The Crossing” is an elegiac piece but it’s a crafty number too that doesn’t dwell in its own maudlin territory for too long as the strings that arrive towards of the track suggest something else entirely. What do they suggest? That’s up to you to decipher.
