Mod-A-Day: Lefties Soul Connection

Modern day soul vikings, Lefties Soul Connection, come charging out of Amsterdam to take Europe's soul and hammond beat loving hordes by storm. Mixing heavy soul, funk, mod, and even hip-hop, Lefties Soul Connection have concocted a sound that is mindful of past funk and soul bands of the late 60s and early 70s, but also aggressively incorporates a lot of mod/garage rock influences. At the same time there are hints of nu soul and hip-hop throughout, creating a really unique and thoroughly modern sound. With two full CDs under their belt already the band is working on a third. That being said, here is their brand new single, a tribute to garage rock to be sure, and a soulful cover of The Sonics' "Have Love Will Travel."
