Nees and Vos is one of those bands you listen to and wonder why they're not the biggest thing around. Complete with Andrew Neesley's trumpets, groove-shaking drums and even a backing gospel choir, this band swoops in and takes care of all your soul food needs.
Songs like 'Burn Me Down' and 'Remember Me' take care of business just fine, but the relentless cowbell in 'Build A Fortress' is all I thought I needed to hear.
And then I heard their epic cover of Gnarls Barkley's 'Who's Gonna Save My Soul,' and got a better idea of just how much this band is capable of. It's not an easy chore to fill in for Cee-Lo's vocals, but singer Chris Vos's buttery vocals, coupled with the souful barnburner of the backing band, produces a combination more than up to the task. Here's a group you ought to be paying attention to.
