THE B-SIDE
Leon Bridges (Columbia)
11/10/15

WHAT IT IS: Leon Bridges’ rise from his roots in Fort Worth can be traced to his savant-like ability to deliver self-penned songs that sounded instantly classic. Bridges’ unique sound, an impassioned reset of gospel-tinged soul, was adroitly captured via vintage production techniques by White Denim members Austin Jenkins and Josh Block. Critics are praising the newcomer for resuscitating soul-stirring R&B with an unblemished batch of original songs that—as NPR noted—reminds us “why gospel meeting soul worked so magically at the dawn of the 1960s…yet the nimble, precise, vocalization Bridges provides feels so fresh.”
