iTunes Review

This debut from England's The Milk is 45 minutes of big surprises, from the group's odd name and strangely out-of-place album artwork (better suited to, say, The Hives or The Libertines) to the huge, infectious R&B-rooted stomper "Broke Up the Family," which opens the album, and the gospel-tinged piano ballad that closes it ("Lay the Pain on Me"). With a voice as viscous and savory as king crooners Cee Lo Green or Aloe Blacc (check "B-Roads" or "Picking Up the Pieces" for a shot of hearty, radio-friendly soul), Rick Nunn and his band stir up an intoxicating blend of Northern soul and vintage R&B with astonishing ease and warmth, never looking back at the band's punk roots. A shot of hip-grinding blues here ("Kimmi Kimmi"), a hint of ska there ("Nothing but Matter"), and pungent doses of Motown ("Every Time We Fight," "Chip the Kids") make Tales from the Thames Delta a fantastically sweat-inducing good time. If The Milk manages to evolve its retro leanings into something even more contemporary down the road, that'll surely be something to see.

I am super excited for The Milk. They're a throwback to when people had faith in the radio and their own two feet. There's no two ways about this album.
Buy it.


Genre: Pop

Years Active: '00s

Hailing from Essex, England, the Milk blend classic Motown and Northern soul with modern pop to create their soulful, party-ready sound. While the quartet members cut their teeth as a punk band, they eventually put that aside and dove headfirst into the big melodic sound of old-school R&B that they had come to love while growing up. With that decision, members Rick Nunn (vocals), Mitch Ayling (drums), Luke Ayling (bass), and Dan LeGresley (guitar) reinvented themselves as the Milk, pulling together...
