Ex Reyes – Bad Timing (Memphis Industries)

A sublime psych soul cut with deep roots coming from Prince and Curtis Mayfield and others.

Horns. Bending melodies. Ascending strings. Wonderful bass driven backbeats.

It’s 3 and a half minutes long but feels like a full blown symphony.

If you need any other reasons to be endeared, it seems to be a song about love and dancing.

One of the year’s essential sounds for me.
