Vinyl of the Day: Silk Sonic, An Evening With Silk Sonic!

A great album to get your evening started, An Evening With Silk Sonic (Aftermath 1-661923, 2022). This high energy album has outstanding song writing, musicianship, and vocals. Every song is strong and stands on its own. The Bruno Mars / Anderson .Paak duo melds seamlessly to deliver a gumbo of Funk, R&B, Hip Hop, and Dance. Bootsy Collins (Parliament / Funkadelics) gives this composition an extra punch of funk contributing vocal on many of the tracks. An Evening with Silk Sonic received many accolades including four Grammy Awards.

An Evening with Silk Sonic has a lot of humor in the lyrics. Many of the songs make light of themselves, their charm with the ladies, and having the world by the tail. Some light-hearted lyrics from “Leave The Door Open”:

Ooh, you're so sweet (so sweet)
So tight (So tight)
I won't bite (uh-huh)
Unless you like (Unless you like)

If you smoke (what you smoke?)
I got the haze (purple haze)
And if you're hungry, girl I got filets (woo-hoo) ...

Get your evening started with a positive charge from An Evening with Silk Sonic!
