St. Paul and the Broken Bones “I’m Torn Up” – Pick of the Week

St. Paul and the Broken Bones brings us “I’m Torn Up” for SwissMisfit’s pick of the week. “I’m Torn Up” showcases the bands versatility from a slow progressive blues verse, heavy bass line and melancholy trumpet to a climatic, James Brown would have been proud, chorus that shines on Paul’s vocal range. St. Paul and the Broken Bones Half the City Record CoverSt. Paul delivers a classic indie soul sound heralded by the popular Alabama Shakes group. “I’m Torn Up” and the entire album is a perfect rainy day album that probably sounds amazing on record.

The entire album, Half the City, is full of soul and there was easily five or six tracks from the album I could have picked for this weeks pick of the week. I selected “I’m Torn Up” because of its ability to demonstrates St. Paul and the Broken Bones versatility. Be on the lookout for this band in the near future. Other amazing tracks include “Call Me” and “Broken Bones and Pocket Change”. So take an hour, kick back and soak this album in for all it is worth.
