RNR News and Notes

People are talking about the Texas based Black Pumas .. and they are saying some pretty amazing things: 

 

“The duo’s flair for drama is so stirring, they can seem acutely cinematic... Burton lends an elegant elasticity to Quesada’s tightly layered productions.” – PITCHFORK

 

“Sam Cooke meets Wu-Tang Clan in the Texas-based duo’s suprisingly fresh take on 70s soul... a debut so perfectly realised by the standards they’ve set themselves that you wonder what could possibly come next. ” – THE GUARDIAN “ONES TO WATCH”

 

“Tireless, charismatic energy... tapping the collective unease of the national moment.” – ROLLING STONE

 

“The world does indeed need Black Pumas and their message right now (4/5 Stars)” – Q MAGAZINE

 

“A soulful explosion... Quesada’s grooves are impeccably matched with Burton’s voice, which can go from buttery Al Green to Wilson Pickett bluster in no time flat.” – UNCUT

 

So it's no surprise that they are making th rounds on the TV circuit - check out  their performance from Fallon below, their Austin City Limits performance HERE and look for them on Ellen on Monday ... oh - did we mention they are nominated for  the “Best New Artist” Grammy award?  And they will be hitting the road this spring for a world tour (including a stop at Baltimore Soundstage on 6/19 (scroll for full tour info)
