That soul voice is fine-grain sandpaper around the edges of that bass groove and then it's a Walter Becker solo. And then you're home.

Music is a beautiful thing. It can be an amazing force for clarity. The personal statement is pretty clear here, but beyond the story which is pretty intense is the larger message that we all have something to come to terms with. Certain things were perhaps not to be "this time around".

It's tough medicine, but on the other side is freedom. And when the groove is this sweet and the melody this good, I'm ready for it. That soul voice is fine-grain sandpaper around the edges of that bass groove and then it's a Walter Becker solo. And then you're home.

We love.

Oh He Dead is a gritty Soul-Americana duo from DC. This Time Around is out as a single right now and they will be following up soon with an album.
