Stuart Wilson’s Real Come Back Story hits on all cylinders. The track’s brassy horns, sexy vocals, and sizzling guitar work is a direct homage to the rhythm and blues of the early 1970s. The importance of the bass line, the dominance of the instrumentation, and the narrative quality of Wilson during this track further hammer home this comparison; this is the type of song that is all too short at 3:12. With a clear production allowing all of these distinct elements to shine, Real Come Back Story is bar none the best refreshing of a dormant style we’ve heard this year.
