There’s a warm retro patina on all of the music Jamil Rashad, the man behind Boulevards, makes; like it was beamed in from some alternate timeline. His latest, a collaboration with La Roux has a classic soul vibe, clothed in organ riffs, overdriven guitar, sultry drum fills, and gallons of reverb, the song calls back to a past that never existed, but maybe should have. The vocal chemistry between Boulevards and La Roux lifts the song from intoxicating groove factory into something truly special.
