Hi everyone!

I hope you are enjoying your day thus far. If you are (sadly) having a bad day, perhaps I could offer up a minor remedy? (Works for me)

I have been listening non-stop to The Olympians. They have such an upbeat, interesting sound.
I could definitely see their music on a Tarantino soundtrack. Great, clean sound with elements of the some of the best that came out of the 70s (these guys are contemporary though). Here's an excerpt from a site I'll link with info on their self titled album:



After repeatedly being visited by a strange messenger in his dreams while on tour in the islands of Greece, Toby Pazner became consumed with a vision to tell the stories of The Olympians through music. Chosen by the gods as a messenger for not only his musical gifts, but for his unique position at the center of the Daptone family, Toby built a home studio from scratch and employed some of the top soul musicians in the world to help him breath life into this album. The result is a dramatic and cinematic journey to the outer limits of instrumental soul music, built on a foundation laid by the same craftsmen whose bricks built the legacies of Sharon Jones, Lee Fields, Charles Bradley, The Budos Band, and Menahan Street Band, and painted with lush strings, harpsichord, harp, and horns. The Olympians is destined to be the instrumental gem of the year.

Now for the fun part! Check them out and get ready to feel great and maybe even groove a bit.




Inspired by Greek gods indeed.

Here's a link to a playlist of their album. Great from start to finish. Thanks for stopping in and enjoy your day!

Thanks ATS twin!


Have a great day my friend.

Now Tarantino just needs to write another screenplay I guess..

Nice! I agree very good (talented) but also a downright feel-good sound.

Enjoy!

Just the right time for some soul..

Some of these musicians played along with Sharon Jones (the Dap Kings)
