Come Around and Love Me

KUTX has been spinning “That’s All I Wanted From You” by Jalen Ngonda, but today’s AMM shares the title track to Ngonda’s album, Come Around and Love Me. Perhaps “nu-soul” is the easy reference point for describing the incredible sound of this London based artist, but clearly there are greater forces at work here. Genres like R&B and soul are present, but free-flowing and nebulous, weaving between classic and modern. The style is uniquely his own, and though it also goes without saying, Ngonda’s vocal talents are unmeasured. What an incredible addition to the Daptone roster.

Don’t miss Jalen Ngonda tonight, Thursday Oct. 19, at Empire Control Room and Garage on E. 7th. Doors at 7 p.m., and the show starts at 8 p.m.
