Aceyalone & The Lonely Ones In-Stores March 31st
Drawing on the sounds of Phil Spector, 60s girl groups, the J.B.s and a slew of raw, dirty funk for sonic inspiration, Aceyalone & The Lonely ones is a tribute album to the doo-wop, blues and funk genres that have been so inspiring to the MC.
The second in a series of genre-specific releases, Aceyalone & The Lonely Ones is a follow up to his 2007 Lightning Strikes, an ode to his love for Jamaican music.
Full big-band sound is coupled with finger snaps, falsetto choruses and Rickenbacker guitar that is a look more towards Motown & the Wall of Sound than today’s by-the-numbers beats.
Along with producer Bionik, each song was painstakingly produced to re-create the sound and feel of a long-gone era and augmented with modern flourishes. The result is an album that simultaneously looks forward and back for inspiration.
