Episode 322: Face Your Fear - Curtis Harding

Atlanta's Curtis Harding has been steeped in soul music his entire life. From singing in church with his family in Michigan as a child to being one of Cee Lo Green's star backup singers, Harding is a true veteran of the scene. On his second full length Face Your Fear, he's playing with is self-proclaimed "garage soul" formula again, this time enlisting the help of uber-producer Danger Mouse to drag a dying art form screaming into the future.

PLUS! Country is king even in Canada, and Blake Berglund is living proof! We've got a taste of his new album Realms for you to sidle your ears up to.

Face Your Fear Curtis Harding Hot Takes: "There's nothing 'neo' about it: It's clear that Harding is mining a deep tradition of soul music in a way that very few modern artists can, even when Danger Mouse's production overshadows the true beauty of these songs" - Kevin   "Sometimes an artist's growth is imperceptible to even the most attuned ear. However, on Curtis Harding's latest, his artistic evolution is palpable, and the star of the show. Intriguingly enough, people would tell you that his mega producer sonic guide here Danger Mouse should be the big highlight here. However, the former half of Gnarls Barkley actually hinders what is very likely to be Harding's certain progression to a uniquely defined superstar status." - Marcus K.
