Frazey Ford – The Indian Ocean

This sublime album of deeply soulful music from the Be Good Tanyas lead singer has rarely been far from the Truck Store stereo since it came out back in 2014. The sheer warmth and heart on display here is utterly captivating.
Ford recorded in the very heart of soul history, Memphis with the legendary Hi Records rhythm section, known for their vintage soul cuts for Al Green amongst others, who provide a silky smooth, subtle groove to support Ford’s emotive, dreamy vocals. This is a gilded, hypnotic and absorbing listen which drifts along in a gloriously languid manner yet has a driving undercurrent of groove which makes it truly special.

We cannot recommend this enough, particularly for fans of Cat Power’s ‘The Greatest’ or any classic Memphis soul
