Proper R&B

I've been sitting on this for a few weeks. Not sure why just never really felt like the right time

The first time I heard this I thought that it was an old R&B number that I had never heard before from around the mid to late 60's. I was half right, turned out it was a cover of an old Them number but was recorded last year.

I Can Only Give You Everything is the flip-side of Nick Waterhouse' s second single and is the sort of thing that you can imagine mods grooving in smokey clubs many moons ago. The a -side is none too shabby either. Neither track sounds like it is the product of the fresh-faced 24 year old, San Francisco Bay Area resident you will find here. The single is available from Innovate Leisure and there is an ep on iTunes containing both tracks on the single, however I think that it is only available to those in the States for some reason. Not sure if it is getting a release this side of the pond.

Heard 'Is That Clear' last year from the same EP and thought it was a great slice of retro, proper R&B, like you say. Thumbs up...we're big fans.

That's very good. I've just listened to the Kills track you posted last month (missed their album last year for some reason) and love it. Just played it 4 times back to back. Going to have to buy the album now. Keep up the good work.

Flycasual - Is That Clear is the a-side
