Kodiaxe The music is so driving and warm! This album is a nice mix of warm songs to play in a retro lounge and uptempo rockers you can twist to. Favorite track: Next Time.

krotix Interesting take on Lounge, female fronted band that jumps genre to genre while at the same time keeping a very sophisticated front. Favorite track: Next Time.

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.

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!

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 © Record Kicks Publishing (SIAE)

Wild Way 04:09
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 © Record Kicks Publishing (SIAE)

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!
