Vinny & Vinyl February Release
Welcome to the February edition of the Vinny & Vinyl Wine and Record Club! It’s been cold this winter so we’ve come up with a pairing to warm your soul. We are excited to feature the debut album of Durand Jones and The Indications and a delicious 2019 Malbec.
Duran Jones and The Indications are an American soul band based in Bloomington, Indiana. Sometimes referred to as modern soul or retro-soul revival, their self-titled debut album, released in 2018, is a refreshing take on classic soul music. The album features catchy melodies, smooth vocals, and groovy instrumentals that transport you back to the 60s and 70s. The band's ability to fuse classic soul with modern influences has earned them a dedicated fanbase and critical acclaim.
As you sit back and listen to Durand Jones and The Indications' debut album, you'll be taken on a journey through the sounds of soul music. The opening track, "Make a Change," is a perfect introduction to the album. It features an upbeat rhythm and catchy lyrics that set the tone for the rest of the record. "Can't Keep My Cool" is a slower track with a smooth groove that will have you swaying along. "Is It Any Wonder?" is a standout track that showcases Durand Jones' impressive vocal range.
To complement this soulful listening experience, we've paired the album with a 2019 Malbec from Amador County. Malbec is a red wine that originated in France but has gained massive popularity in Argentina. The 2019 vintage is known for its ripe fruit flavors and smooth tannins, making it a perfect pairing for the soulful sounds of Durand Jones and The Indications. The wine's dark fruit flavors, such as blackberry and plum, complement the rich and powerful vocals, while its subtle earthy notes provide a nice balance to the retro-inspired instrumentation.
Both are products of passion, creativity, and hard work, and they complement each other perfectly.
Durand Jones and The Indications' first album is a must-have for any fan of soul music. It's a modern take on a classic genre that will have you tapping your feet and humming along. Paired with our delicious 2019 Malbec, it's the perfect way to spend an evening with friends or by yourself. So pour yourself a glass, sit back, and enjoy the music and wine!
