SEXTONES Without You/Love Can't Be Borrowed
By popular demand, Record Kicks repress The Sextones' 45 vinyl featuring "Without You" / "Love Can't Be Borrowed", 2 floorshaking soul belters taken from the upcoming highly-anticipated LP produced by Monophonics frontman Kelly Finnigan. The 1st press went rapidly sold with preorders, so we decided to run a 2nd press of the 45 (this time with large hole) which is once again limited to 500 copies worldwide and it will hit the streets on June 30th.
"Without You", on side A of the 45, is an uptempo burner, showcasing playful call-and-response vocals, xylophone and horns over an unapologetically locked-in rhythm section, while on the flip side we find the album's namesake "Love Can't Be Borrowed", which brings the mid-tempo soul magic and speaks to the moral expectations of a rocky relationship. The 45 is a must have for soul djs and collectors out there.
Friends since childhood, The Sextones are Mark Sexton (guitar, vocals), Alexander Korostinsky (bass), Daniel Weiss (drums), and Christopher Sexton (piano). Having known each other for so long, their musical chemistry is effortless and forms the foundation of the band's longevity and creative workflow. Despite their bond, each member has been able to channel their creativity into other acclaimed groups—Alexander and Mark with their cinematic-soul project Whatitdo Archive Group and Daniel with the soul/jazz group Delvon Lamarr Organ Trio (Colemine Records). Flexing their creative muscle individually has only strengthened The Sextones' collective songwriting ability and heralds their formidable return to the spotlight. With their recent signing to Record Kicks, the self-made heroes of soul begin a new chapter in their sonic journey, ready to scale new heights and plumb deep emotional depths in service of the genre they love.
