Description

Troy Kingi's critically acclaimed album now available on CD.

This galactic Seventies funk album, grew from listening to the likes of Bill Withers, Shuggie Otis, Curtis Mayfield, Al Green and Marvin Gaye. Troy knew that he wanted an outrageous over the top album, and wrote down the most way out song titles he could imagine, all about being out in space. From there he went to the beach with his brother, and every night they would sit in their deck chairs, stare at the stars, and talk about one of the song titles. Each night they discussed the back story of a song, and from there Troy wrote the album. It was never originally intended to be a concept album, but it turned out that way, with three main characters appearing throughout the lyrics, until they all became one. Some of the songs also turned out to be quite lengthy, but it was never intended, they were just as long as they needed to be. The result is a visual album, one where all songs are cinematic and powerful. It grooves, it slides, it moves in a way that just doesn’t happen anymore.

Critic Reviews:

  • “Like his guitar playing, Kingi’s singing is as ne and supple as ever. He really has a classic soul voice that can oat up into falsetto as effortlessly as Curtis or D’Angelo, so it’s easy to forget that these songs deviate somewhat from the classic soul themes. It’s only when a word leaps out like ‘Zygertron’ that you realise he’s singing about intergalactic highways and cosmic love.” – Nick Bollinger, RNZ
  • “Whether you follow the theme or not you have to acknowledge the gorgeous soul sound – and often a sense of ineffable sadness – across these 11 songs and ftysomething minutes which hark back to Stevie Wonder and Jimi Hendrix at their most thoughtfully cosmic, offers some gentle soul-funk (the excellent Luna Steppa) and even manages to project a Pacific breeze into outer space (Gold Shoes).” – Graham Reid, Elsewhere.co.nz
