These indie neo-soul musicians out of Los Angeles gave us a wonderfully retro debut album in 2010. Because we liked Pickin' Up the Pieces so much, with all its brassy flair, crisp snares, and throwback tracks like "Breakin' The Chains of Love," we can't say that we're huge fans of their latest release, More Than Just a Dream. They've lost the soul that made their sound unique and replaced it with synthesizer-heavy songs that make Fitz and the Tantrums sound like just about every other indie band out there. It's an interesting choice for an album title, when you think about it. Hopefully the moderate success they achieved with Pickin' Up the Pieces wasn't just a dream.
