Pacific Soul Ltd. – The Dance Devine
A few months back, Charlie Faye & The Fayettes released a highly enjoyable collection of bubblegum/soul, giving us something new while borrowing from the best of old. In a similar vein, Pacific Soul Ltd. gives us their debut LP, twelve tracks of love, peace and soul from the collaborative efforts of Adam Marsland, Teresa Cowles and Norman Kelsey.
An early track, “Tomorrow Brings Tonight”, is a great example of the total equaling more than the sum of its parts. All three band members had a hand in writing the piece and while each brings something special to the table, the end result is likely greater than if the song had been left to any single contributor. “Aching For You” is simply great pop – smooth as silk with a soulful vocal and killer hook. “We Go High” will remind you of the best bubblegum tracks of your youth – you know, the one’s you used to lip-sync to while your friends played air guitar. It’s got Boom-Sha-la-las. What more could you want?
