I am all about Kings Go Forth right now. I heard “One Day,” the lead track on their album The Outsiders Are Back, a couple of weeks ago on The Current and was absolutely blown away. Yesterday I finally got the album, and the entire thing is just as good: intense, blustery funk with a great live feel. Much like Sharon Jones and the Dap-Kings, you might suspect on first listen that it was recorded in the early ’70s, not in 2010.
Kings Go Forth are a Milwaukee-based band that are apparently just starting to get some serious attention, and they deserve it! Here’s a “behind the scenes” video the band posted on YouTube, accompanied by “One Day.” Enjoy!
