Stuck On Repeat, Part II: We Keep Reachin’ For The New Nicole Willis Album

Jun 26th, 2007 // 2 Comments

418G5R8VK7L._AA240_.jpgNicole Willis & the Soul Investigator’s Keep Reachin’ Up would be a sure-fire year-end-list contender for one of your Idolators–except for the fact that Reachin’ was actually released overseas last year (apparently, a retro-soul record as good as this doesn’t go unnoticed in the U.K. and Japan). Light In The Attic will put album in the states next month, and the irresistibly upbeat “If This Ain’t Love (Don’t Know What It Is)” is the first single; give it a listen, and then head over to the group’s MySpace page for the haunting “No One’s Gonna Love You,” which slow-burns like you wouldn’t believe:

    Oh man, love this record so much. The title track is a jawdropper too.

    Also, Nicole Willis = Jimi Tenor’s wife.

    Thanks for the heads-up/download.

    A foreign ’06 release won’t prevent anyone from voting for a record making its U.S. debut. For example, you think any critic (including, um, this one) is going to hold back from voting for Amy Winehouse’s album just because it’s a dog’s age old in the U.K.?
