For the last few months we’ve been tracking music from the band formerly known as LEXSOUL DANCEMACHINE – the self-styled “Estonian premier league funk and soul band”. Now going out as simply LEXSOUL they’ve issued two singles which they class as “yacht rock”. The tunes were the sweet, catchy and clever ‘Pigeon Pit’ and a similarly light ‘Lazy Breeze’.
We were told that the two cuts were from an upcoming EP – ‘Lex On The Beach’ and said four tracker is now with us. The two tracks mentioned above are joined by ‘Sweet Life’ and, the real highlight, ‘Relax Your Mind’ (listen up for a great vibes solo and some funky guitar here!)
The cover art and accompanying PR suggest AOR, a touch of Miami Vice, Hawaiian shirts and a smattering of blue-eyed soul. And that’s not a bad summation of the music – not earth shattering but pleasant and undemanding – relaxing, beach music of decent calibre! Out now via Funk Embassy Records.
