They quite simply can do it all. The 8 person soul group, St. Paul & The Broken Bones, show this on their latest record, “Young Sick Camellia”. Some will argue they are at their best jamming out, not following any structure, just playing from the heart. There is merit to that argument, but it is impossible to not feel the infectious vibe of radio worthy hits like “Apollo” and “GotItBad”. The emotional vocal performances coupled with eccentric and intricate arrangements, make this a rare hit concept album.
