Kings Go Forth

Kings Go Forth are a three-part-harmony soul group out of Milwaukee (actually, they're mostly IN Milwaukee, as I'm not sure they've really played much outside of Chicago's little brother). Nevertheless, they create soul music that could easily be placed on the shelf next to Curtis Mayfield and the Temptations. In the last month or so they've put out their first release, a 45 with the tracks "One Day" and "You're the One." Both of these are stone-cold funk. They're a little raw and rough around the edges, though this only helps to make them sound authentically old, unlike the sterile "retro" sounds of Wino and the like. Check it out:
