“This whirlwind of a modern day experimental R&B track is top notch in my book” – INDIE SHUFFLE
“A warm infusion of jazz and neo-soul perfect for dispelling those lingering winter blues” – THE LINE OF BEST FIT
“A tasteful electro-future-soul odyssey that blends the art of soul, production, and instrumentation.” - REVIVE MUSIC
New Tru Thoughts signings Space Captain release the double A-side “Easier”/ “Remedy”, on 24th July, ahead of a debut EP which is in development for later this year.
Self-releasing “Easier” via Bandcamp in 2013, alongside a brand new video, Space Captain gained impressive early support from the likes of Indie Shuffle, Revive and The Line of Best Fit. They subsequently put out “Remedy” in 2014, accompanied by a live video session for Sofar Sounds (NY), to further acclaim. This official double A-side release is set to showcase these fresh, early visions of the Brooklyn-based collective's sound to a wider audience. Fusing R&B, hip hop, soul and psych, Space Captain fit perfectly on Tru Thoughts’ roster among the likes of Alice Russell, Quantic and The Seshen, while singer Maralisa is particularly excited to be able to call herself a label mate of the Hot 8 Brass Band: “A dream of mine is to collaborate with Hot 8; I remember seeing them a lot at New Orleans Jazz Fest when I was younger and thinking they were just incredible”.

Smooth, soulful and tasty. Something about James' style has appealed to so many fans. Perhaps it's the sincerity in his singing and the message of hope and love. There is an old school vibe to it too, that gives one a sense of sitting home relaxing with a glass of wine and a significant other. Very romantic. Rob O.

Production, Lyrics, just quality music. The whole album is fire, hard to just try and choose one track. Can't thank Oddisee and the Good Company band enough, seen them live in Germany and DC, even better live. The Good Company band alone puts on a show. rfloresnet
