iTunes Review

Recorded in Memphis with the Hodges brothers—the core of the legendary Hi Rhythm Section, which backed Al Green and others in the '70s—Indian Ocean embraces its nostalgia without getting mired in it. The relaxed, old-school soul of the music blends naturally with Frazey Ford’s honeyed vibrato tone and distinct phrasing. Her second solo release is removed from the country-folk of her former band, The Be Good Tanyas, yet taps the same mix of sweetness and melancholy, especially the gorgeous “September Fields” and “Runnin” and the transcendent, utterly charming title track.

Customer Reviews

Wow!

I'm truly loving Frazey's new single, September Fields. Beautifully performed in the classic, foot-tapping, finger-popping sound of Memphis Soul. It's so deep, I felt like Al Green was going to join in any moment! I can't wait to listen to the entire album.

Start to finish, Indian Ocean is a winner

I was listening to satellite radio when I heard a song that made me get up and run to the radio to see what/who it was. Turned out to be “Natural Law” by Frazey Ford on her 2nd solo release Indian Ocean. Immediately I went to iTunes to check it out and bought the album practically before she sang her first note on September Field.

This album is the kind you pause if you have to leave the room, take a call or whatever b/c you don’t want to miss a note. Of course her voice and songs are the reason for the record but the guitar/organ/horn interactions coupled with the rock solid bass/drums demand that you listen and move to the music.

I used to think Al Green’s sound was his and his alone. I’ve never been so glad to be so wrong. I guess it didn’t hurt that Frazey (thanks to her parents) was introduced to Al at an early age which led to her being in an Al Green cover band. I would not be surprised if Al didn’t cover some of her songs from this album.

My advice is to save yourself some time and get the whole album rather than 1 or 2 at a time. It’s meant to be listened to as 1 piece of soulful R&B with a folky sensibility I cannot properly describe in words.

Surprise!

Check out Runnin and Done. Nice take on Memphis.
She reminds me of Valerie June, or Natalie Merchant…
a little New Orleans.
