Straight off the heels of 2007’s Lightning Strikes, Aceyalone’s ode to his love for Caribbean music, comes the second installment in this OkayArtist’s creative series of genre-specific tributes. Aceyalone & The Lonely Ones (street date March 31) boasts a full big-band sound that authentically draws from Doo-Wop, Blues and Funk inspired by Phil Spector’s “Wall Of Sound,” 60s girl groups, and the J.B.s. As with Lightning Strikes, the Freestyle Fellowship veteran once again teamed up with producer/singer/songwriter Bionik to painstakingly re-create the sound and feel of a long-gone era and augmented with modern flourishes. The result is an album that simultaneously looks forward and back for inspiration.
