"With fat, buzzing bass lines, no-holds-barred guitar licks, playful yet virile rhythms, searing fiddle riffs, pounding, viscerally percussive ground-swells and vocals that feel as old as the ages yet fresh as the dawn, Soul Science is less of a cross-cultural collaboration than an arresting, endlessly fascinating dispatch from a new nation entirely. The tracks evoke a garage band from a place where automobiles are completely irrelevant because whenever the inhabitants decide to travel, they are already there. Transitioning and overlapping amongst blues from several continents, American rock 'n' roll of sock-hop vintage, shadowy respites amid the heat mirages of a Sahel afternoon and desert evenings when the moon seems well within reach, Justin Adams (electric and acoustic guitars, Tamashek lute, percussion, banjo, vocals) and Juldeh Camara (lead vocals, one-string fiddle, West African banjo, percussion) along with their inspired back-up team of Salah Dawson Miller (percussion) and Billy Fuller (bass), have achieved a white-hot synthesis instigated by centuries of history refracted through the kaleidoscope that is the information age."
