Third Coast Kings

A 12 track funk album (43m 29s) — released March 9th 2012 on Record Kicks

THE THIRD COAST KINGS introduced themselves to the world in 2010 with the release of 45 “Give Me Your Love†/ “Tonic Stride†and ever since then the buzz surrounding this up and coming deep funk and soul combo from Ann Arbor/Detroit has been steadily increasing. Having already enjoyed extended International radioplay and DJ support from the likes of Kenny Dope (Kay Dee), Craig Charles (Funk&Soul Show on BBC6) and Ian Wright, anticipation builds around the release of this band’s debut full-length. The Kings’ staple sharp-edged sound has been finely honed to a hard-grooving, rough and rugged musical mastery that never lets up, and their first album is no exception! With choppy guitar licks, horny horns, and badass beats, The Third Coast Kings provide all the right ingredients to make you shake that tail feather from here to next Winter. Their self-titled debut is a solid example of the kind of explosive sound this tight 8 piece produces, and from the first to the last track the groove is always super heavy and massively funky. Whether on gritty instrumental workouts such as “Case Quarterâ€, “Cop It Proper†and “Come On†or soulful vocal showpieces such as “Spicy Brown†and “Emcee Marieâ€, The Kings bring you nothing but the finest in proper funk and soul. Get down to the sound that will have you beggin’ for more, get down to The Third Coast Kings!
