Raphael Saadiq has a truly classic sound, it’s R&B sung like it should be. In my opinion he’s a one man Temptations and his new album is even more nostalgic, with rhythms that rock and choruses that croon. My particular favorite from Stone Rollin is the title track….Stone Rollin. It’s simultaneously dowoop and rock and roll, highlighting Raphael’s versatility and musical creativity. If you haven’t purchased your tickets to his concert at Stubb’s in Austin, TX on June 8th, I would like to gently suggest that you go ahead and do so.
