The soul revival has been in full effect for a good decade now and lots of good artists are coming out of it still, among them, Seattle septet The Dip, led by Beat Connection regulars Tom Eddy (vocals, guitar) and Jarred Katz (drums). They’ve earned some ink from Rolling Stone (which likened the Dip to acts on the Daptone Records roster, not a small compliment), and their just-released sophomore, The Dip Delivers, adds percussion, back-up singers, and a string quartet to the mix, plus a fine collab in organist Delvon Lamarr and guitarist Jimmy James (True Loves, Delvon Lamarr Organ Trio) in the hard slinking, groove-shuffling track, “Advertising.” The band also encompasses a tight three-piece horn section that brings brass-raising oomph to The Dip’s modernized take on ’60s- vintage sounds.
They sold out Saturday night at Neumos. Tonight's date was added so stragglin’ fans didn’t miss a chance to get their Dip on. That means you. Media below.
