(LOOTPRESS) – “Nevada retro soul outfit The Sextones have just announced a US tour this fall to promote their upcoming new album Love Can’t Be Borrowed, produced by Kelly Finnigan of Monophonics and out on September 29th on Milan-based label Record Kicks.
The tour includes three dates in California with psychedelic soul masters Monophonics: Santa Barbara on November 9th, Morro Bay on November 10th and San Francisco on November 11th.
Sophisticated, suave, and masterfully composed, the new album is like a sonic love letter to late ’60s and early ’70s soul, nodding to the giants of the genre and bowing to its unsung heroes.
Drawing from their upbringings steeped in the sound, front man and guitarist Mark Sexton and bassist Alexander Korostinsky knew they wanted an album to highlight their old-school bona fides while leaving room for innovation. They found that balance in marathon recording sessions at Finnigan’s Transistor Sound studio in San Rafael, California.
Friends since childhood, The Sextones are Mark Sexton (guitar, vocals), Alexander Korostinsky (bass), Daniel Weiss (drums), and Christopher Sexton (piano). Having known each other for so long, their musical chemistry is effortless and forms the foundation of the band’s longevity and creative workflow.
Despite their bond, each member has been able to channel their creativity into other acclaimed groups— Alexander and Mark
Flexing their creative muscle individually has only strengthened The Sextones’ collective songwriting ability and heralds their formidable return to the spotlight. With their recent signing to heavy-weight soul label, Record Kicks, the self-made heroes of soul begin a new chapter in their sonic journey, ready to scale new heights and plumb deep emotional depths in service of the genre they love.
The Sextones’s Love Can’t Be Borrowed album will be available on vinyl, CD and digitally September 29th via Record Kicks.
