Kathryn Shut A great friend of mine, Fabio Negri from Radio Vertigo One turned me on to The Tibbs when I was still doing my syndicated radio show, Modern Soul Sauce, and the moment I heard them, I fell in love. Their sound, beautiful, warm, and powerful, is obviously recorded on analog, and it takes me back to a time when horns reigned supreme, great songwriting was a must, and heartfelt vocals sold the song. Thank you Record Kicks and The Tibbs for preserving that feeling.

about

Record Kicks is extremely proud to present one of the hottest new names on the retro Soul scene; The Tibbs! Anticipated by the single 'Next Time', already on rotation on BB6 Music, Radio France, NPO Radio 2 and Radio Rai 1, The Tibbs' debut album 'Takin' Over' will hit the streets on May 20. Produced by Paul Willemsen (Zuco 103 / Lefties Soul Connection), recorded at the Electric Monkey Studio in Amsterdam using only vintage gear and mastered in Nashville by soul veteran Bob Ohlsson (the guy who took care of mastering for many Motown hits), 'Takin' Over' is indeed a breath of fresh air!

From floor-shaking soul tunes like 'Dog Days', 'Get Back Tuesday' and 'Next Time', to the deep soul of 'Wild Way' and funk stormer 'Suffocated', singer Elsa Bekman - supported by a super tight big band - will impress everybody with her unique, raw, gritty vocals that do not fear comparison with big names such as Amy Winehouse and Duffy. Based around Amsterdam and founded by a bunch of northern-soul and funk disciples, The Tibbs started in 2012 taking inspiration from the golden age of Soul Music. In 2014 they self-released a demo EP and they also released a 45 vinyl on German funk label Tramp Records. Now, after a few exciting years turning heads and spreading soul tunes all around the country - including appearances at the legendary North Sea Jazz Club and a live performances at national Radio 6 - The Tibbs are finally ready to make their official debut on Record Kicks. Take notice, because The Tibbs are the new name to watch!

I will love it oh so much
Even though the dog days are done The dog days are done
Yeah
Can you tell What I'm saying
Can you look at me in a different way Don't you know it'll save me time Can you hold
Hold me tight
So that I can kiss you goodnight So hard that I lose my breath Can you ha!

Track Name: Get Back Tuesday
I don't get that
My baby and I can't see eye to eye Can you cut me some slack
Or else we can't stand side by side I will go
And leave you to your little world of sorrow Then after I get back at you
Oh baby I will get back to you Oh baby

Can you let it go
The fact that it didn't last is a horror But you need to know
That I still want you in my life I would lie
If I'd say that I didn't even try To get back to you
But first I had to get back at you Oh baby
Let me love and
Let me love and live Cause I can't take it I can't take it no
It's a fact that
I once truly believed that we would make it
We were fine until we started fussin and fightin Every single day
Now I will love
Another man that can keep his shit together Then after I'll have gotten back at you
Oh baby I will get back to you Oh baby
But let me love and Let me love and live Cause I can't take it I can't take it no
No more
Can you get that
You and I can't see eye to eye Can you cut me some slack We just can't jam side by side I would lie
If I'd say that I didn't even try To get back to you
But first I had to get back that Tuesday Oh baby
Don't take it
Don't take it so personal
You know I had to get it back I'll get it back

Track Name: Until We Meet Again
Darling, darling, darling Why do you have to go It's been a long time Since we got along

Baby, baby, baby Why can't you see It could be better Better than this

Baby, baby, baby I've been lonesome
While lying next to you While lying next to you

Oh my, oh my, my, my My Lord
I can't take no more this way His ways have changed

I wonder sometimes
Could I have done more to make this right?

Baby, baby, baby Can't you see That we're better
Better off without you and me

So darling, darling
Sweet baby boy please understand That I can't give much more than this Can't give much more than this

I wonder sometimes Would I have given it A little more time
Then maybe we could've done So much more
To make eachother right

All the different loves
In all the different places Have given me
So much more
All the different faces
Have given it so much more

Have given it so much more

Baby, baby, baby I've been gone For so long
For so long

But I promise I promise
To change all that One day

But we will never, never We will never, never, never Be friends again
Until we meet again

Oh no, oh no Oh no no no Ooh no no
No mercy you would show So forget about me
Forget about me I'm gone

I wonder sometimes
If we could've done so much more To make eachother right

All the different loves
In all the different places Have given

All the different loves And all the different faces
Have given me so much more Have given it so much more All The different loves
Yeah yeah Oh!

Track Name: Armada
People think this is all a treasure Thinking within these walls
Cause people want to stay inside this bliss

People begging: "Stick around" But I
I won't back down

Everybody's smile is fake I think
I think a change is coming

But I walk Cause I won't

Wash my brain

People say it's all a little, a little A little for the, for the both of us I can see them crawling, crawling Back to their cages yeah

People beggin: "Stay inside" But I
Have not lost my mind

Everybody's smile is fake I think
I think a change is coming

But I walk Cause I won't Wash my brain

This armada Taking over Blindfolded

This armada Taking over Blindfolded

More and more people join the march Herded by a qualm
Or do people simply choose to shut their eyes

Living in a world of sin But I
Refuse to get sucked in

Everybody's smile is fake I think
I think a change is coming

But I walk Cause I won't Wash my brain

This armada Taking over Blindfolded

This armada Taking over Blindfolded

People, hold your fire People, hold your fire Abort mission

People, hold your fire People, hold your fire

Abort mission

Track Name: Next Time
I-I can't do much about
The fact that I don't know you Cause I don't think I'm allowed To feel all of this
Oooh
As I can't make this all about you No it can't be all about you Though I'll feel so much better Without this weight on me
And I worry ooh now
That I will do it, do it again Cause I do this every time Without any change in sight Next time I'll have to choose
Or this will be another heart bruised Is this where I sunk
Stuck in a blue funk
Tell me what you think of this
When you see her walking down the street I can't say I like it too

As much as I do like you I can't do this to love
I can't do this to ya
Though I'll feel so much better Without him leaning on me And I worry ooh now
That I will do it, do it again Cause I do this every time Without any change in sight Next time I'll have to choose
Or this will be another heart bruised Is this where I sunk
Stuck in a blue funk And I worry ooh now
That I will do it, do it again Cause I do this every time Without any change in sight And I worry ooh now
That I will do it, do him
Do it again, do it again yeah Without any change in sight Next time I'll have to choose
Or this will be another heart bruised Is this where I sunk
Stuck in a blue funk Stuck in a blue funk Stuck in a blue funk

Track Name: Washed My Hands
I washed my hands of it, baby
Cause I can look the other way na-now Thought about it lately
When I saw another dog in town

When you washed your hands of it, baby You left me alone
To pick up the pieces I wanna take you to it

Want you to know I wanna show you
Just how much mess you caused

I wanna hurt you So bad ah!

You hurt me non stop
You made loving you so hard
But I must've been a masochist or something Cause I kept
Coming back
Coming back for more

OK!
Na-na-na-now could you maybe Look me in the eyes and tell me There was no misunderstanding Only clean cut stone cold lies

Think of all the trouble it would've saved me If I had heard it from the horse's mouth
But you washed your hands of it

Don't wanna know Don't wanna be shown
Just how much mess you caused aha

I wanna hurt you So, so bad ah!

You hurt me non stop
You made loving you so hard
But I must've been a masochist or something Cause I kept
Coming back Coming back Coming back Coming back

I was like
Hurt me don't stop now Make loving you so hard
I must've been a masochist or something

Cause I kept Coming back Coming back
Coming back for more Oh!

But I washed my hands now I washed my hands now

Track Name: The Story Goes
Hold on
Could you tell me why you're going so fast Thinking about the last time that love ever lasted

Hold on
Can you take it Hold on
That I could break it Hold on
I can do it, do it all by myself But I can't leave you, no way

Hold on
Could you give me a sign where you are Love is fragile
Remember that the next time you think that it so is not

Feel it
I'm coming Feel it
I'm coming
Now I don't know why I would tell you a lie If it all were to be gone

And when I think I Can't hold on
Don't dare to lose my independence I can't take it no
I can't take no more
You convince me with your

Big big big big Heart
Your big beautiful heart Heart

And so on
Could you tell me what you thought of it so far The book has been written
But many chapters have yet to come Though for now
That's how the story goes The story goes
The story goes

Track Name: Wild Way
Don't ever leave me in a wild way And not expect me
To be a mild saint Don't ever root for me On a wild day
When I'm nowhere near sane, hey! It's a wild way yeah
It's a wild way yeah Of living
Don't ever hold me
In a wild, wild way like you did Do you not know that
everything it turns into, makes me feel like shit Don't ever choose me
If you can't handle it
You aren’t enough of a man for it Cause shit
It's a wild way yeah It's a wild way yeah Of living
I don't expect you to feel this way Or understand for that matter
I just need to know: yes or no? Can you handle it?
Don't do it
For God's sake
Never under, under, under, underestimate Your mistake
Never heal your pain without thinking A paralyzed mind won't prepare you
