Fitz and the Tantrums “Pickin’ Up the Pieces”

October 10, 2010

I met these guys at Holocene in Portland, Oregon, when they opened up for Blue Skies for Black Hearts. They are new and from Los Angeles. They are a fun R&B bar band with soulful male and female vocals. In a lot of ways, it reminds you of the Motown greats of the ’60s, with a little more organ. I’ve used this analogy before, but these songs would all work at the end of a Murphy Brown episode. So many keywords … .
“L.O.V.” adds hand claps to this melting pot of delicious soup or chowder or whatever it is they’re making for dinner. Don’t save room for dessert: It can’t compare. “Don’t Gotta Work It Out” could be the song that breaks them. It’s more polished than the rest, and it would fit right in on any Julia Roberts movie soundtrack.
“Tighter” is the last track and is thoughtfully put together. I really enjoy this album. It has both kinds of music: rhythm and blues.
