Stones Throw sure knows how to pick em. The first, of an alleged many new artists to emerge on the label, hail from Connecticut and create jams that sound like 70s soul meets 60s psychedelia. The Stepkids are some seriously groovy cats: three singer/songwriters who share all duties of the music process equally. They first appeared online last November with a tune called “Legend In My Own Mind,” a slow-paced, trippy guitar anthem that’s a definite throwback to artists like Marvin Gaye or Curtis Mayfield. Stones Throw – who love preserving vintage tunes (Dam Funk anyone?) – are now putting out a 12” with a new song “Shadows On Behalf” which is a bit more ominous and funky, and sounds a bit like Ariel Pink. Shadows On Behalf/La La 12” is out in April.
