SONG OF THE DAY Los Yesterdays – Time

Los Yesterdays originated in a Californian garage when Gabriel Rowland teamed up with his old friend Victor Benavides.  Rowland, a long time drummer and eccentric creator of abundant soulful things, took charge of recording as well as playing all the instruments, while Benavides wrote and cut the vocals.

The project pretty much stayed in their garage for a few years until a mutual connection brought them to the attention of Tom Brenneck (guitarist and producer with The Dap-Kings, Menahan Street Band and The Budos Band.  He is also known as a Daptone session musician) and Gabe Roth (bass player, bandleader, primary songwriter and producer of the band Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings. He is also a co-founder of the Daptone Records).  Both Roth and Brenneck loved the songs and offered to join in on guitar and bass so that the duo might be able to perform their music live.  The four soon found a handful of gigs behind them and a Penrose recording date in front of them (Penrose Studios in Riverside, California is also ran by Gabriel Roth).

Out of this sprang, Tell Me I’m Dreaming, a soulful single complete with orchestral percussion and co-ed chorus, as well as today’s song, Time, a dark and reflective chunk of psychedelic soul.  The smoothness of this song defies its modest garage-based origins and offers a polished gem which sparkles both inside and out.  Deep lyrics are pondering, whilst he melody is wistful and endearing; this is more than just a good soul tune, this is good soul nourishment!..

Tell Me I’m Dreaming will be available to buy on vinyl on 10th April, but you can purchase a digital copy right now! Find this here and listen above.
