Anyone who’s well-versed in retro record labels like Stax, Chess and Motown should find plenty to groove to in the slick soul sounds of Seattle’s Lanford Black. They call what they do “electric sweat,” so consider that a challenge to stand still while they play. The quartet transports you back to a funkier time, when a Hammond organ was the coolest instrument and the most important thing in a song was a bopping bassline, and their single “In the Beginning” is built upon a refrain that’s more like a call to arms: “F--- it — let’s burn it down.” Lanford Black performed at last year’s Elkfest, and if you missed them that time, don’t pass ’em up now.
