Feel Good album preview – The Internet

A young, understated duo release a sophomore album that’s creating a buzz for its mature blend of soul, funk and jazz

feel_good_album_the_internetLet’s be clear. The Internet has nothing to do with the World Wide Web. Rather, it’s the name of a neo soul band comprising Matt Martians and lead vocalist Syd tha Kyd, who met via Myspace in 2008. Feel Good is the pair’s follow up to their 2011 debut album Purple Naked Ladies, which, like this album, is released on Odd Future Records, (a label run by California rapper Tyler, The Creator).

The Los Angeles-based duo have been creating a buzz with a couple of tracks that will appear on the forthcoming album. Dontcha is a delicate, funky jaunt with a distinct early ’80s vibe, while Partners In Crime Part Two is a smooth Rhodes-led soul-jazz jam.

Feel Good, which includes input from bassist extraordinaire Thundercat and Chad Hugo of The Neptunes (who produced Dontcha), is released on September 24, 2013.
