My Music of the Moment post for today features two songs by Raphael Saadiq. I discovered his music while listening to Spotify on one of my many random solo road trips. I really love his throwback sound that pays homage to all of the great soul/R&B/Motown groups of the 60s. It's a sound that has influenced many of today's artists, but at the same time most of those performers don't capture the feel or groove that really makes this genre of music so awesome. It was really refreshing hearing Raphael Saadiq because he really understands what this type of music is all about. If I hadn't looked him up I would have thought I was listening to some recordings from the late 60s that I had never heard before.
