Huzzah! We’ve been waiting for The Right Now to come back for a hot minute, and finally the day has come! This Chicago outfit is one of our absolute favorite bands to emerge from the soul revival of the past decade, and their new album Gets Over You is one of our favorites of the year. Produced by Orgone’s Sergio Rios — one of our other favorite soul-revival crews — Gets Over You’s got all the right tones to make it “authentic,” and all the energy and swing that make soul music all-caps LEGIT. The songs get stuck in your head, the grooves get stuck in your rump, and from beginning to end Gets Over You hits all the sweet spots — the horns, the breakbeats, the soul-stirring vocals of Stefanie Berecz. This, ladies and gentleman, is sweet soul satisfaction.
