Lift Your Spirit - Aloe Blacc

You take the voice from Avicii's 'Wake Me Up'. 
You add the kind of black soul music I bought on vinyl in my late teens (James Ingram, Billy Ocean, Alexander O'Neal, Terence Trent D'Arby...).
You update it all to make it sound contemporary, but not trendy.

You end up with a sophisticated, catchy, ingeniously simple and yet overpowering soul album.

Love it (in case I hadn't already been specific enough about that)!
