The Free Label
This Some Kind Of Love
The Free Label is five piece band, based in Toronto. This Some Kind Of Love is their debut EP and although it contains only three songs, it does demonstrate a band on their way to creating their own niche. The group consists of Josh Daniel (vocals), Matthew Fantini (bass), Malik Mungo (guitar), Daniel-leigh Mclean (drums) and Cole Mendez (keyboards).
They are clearly influenced by rhythm and blues, past and present, and yet they have started to create their style within that genre. The band is tight, which would suggest they have learned a great deal from numerous live gigs over the past year or so, and Josh Daniel has the perfect voice for the music.
The intention here is to get you moving and grooving and on that account they succeed. The songs are for your pleasure, to be played at a maximum volume at party or a great summer outdoors gathering. But the key to the music is to have fun and celebrate life. Again, they succeed. This is hot rhythm and blues and dance music, not techno, but dance music. In many regards they tap into the past and make it current.
As this is only a three song EP, it would be interesting to see what they can do with an entire album of material. I think they will succeed and I look forward to more music from this talented band.
