Not too many acts can serve well both the music nerd crew as well as the passive top 40 listener and make both groups happy. Menahan Street Band has been doing this in a few different ways for well over a decade and, hopefully, for many more years to come. The members come from other notable bands such as Sharon Jones & The Dap-King and El Michels Affair. Make the Road by Walking was their 2008 debut and, on it’s own, is a captivating body of artwork. It’s jazzy, almost-big-bandish sound hits a sweet spot of soulful and origin-rooted while also connecting younger ears with juuuust enough bounce. To that point, even if you’ve never listened directly to their music, you’ve likely heard it sampled all over the place in hip-hop. Do you homework on them. Then add this staple to your collection today!
