Sunday ACL Fest Record Reviews

St. Paul & the Broken Bones

"All I Ever Wonder," "Flow With It (You've Got Me Feeling Like)," and "Is It Me?" (Single Lock)

Sunday ACL Fest Record Reviews

There's a full-blown soul revival sweeping music, and not just what gets issued by Daptone Records. Primed for a double bill with fellow ACL Festers and Stax signees Nathaniel Rateliff & the Night Sweats, this Birmingham, Ala., sixpiece followed up 2014 debut Half the City with this month's Sea of Noise, releasing a trio of singles in between, including August's gospel-tinged "Is It Me?" dripping with Pops Staples-like tremolo guitar and the Stevie Wonder-ish delight "All I Ever Wonder." Possessing stabbing horns and Paul Janeway's honeyed pipes, this St. Paul can heal anyone and anything. (5pm, HomeAway stage)
