Catalonia's ska / soul powerhouse return with a 100% authentic straight soul record! Look out Dap Kings!

The Pepper Pots are back with their 4th full length effort! Their second now on Megalith Records. 'Train To Your Lover' has brought them front and center in the world of soul music. With each release they have slowly moved away from the soul / ska blend that they established early on. But fear not, the beats may be different but the 'soul' has always been there! The band has been honing their soul skills and have embraced them full force on this album. For fans of classic soul music and modern bands like The Dap Kings, this release is sure to please. Boasting a large musical arsenal and their signature female trio singers, The Pepper Pots have mastered the ability to MAKE soul music. They are NOT copying it, they are CREATING it!

To find this sound The Pepper Pots have been recording in their own studio, 'Black Pepper Studio', using an entirely analogical setup and similar instruments to those used in the golden era of soul music. Each band member has collaborated in each of the tasks involved in the recording: the composition, arrangements, production, mixing.....and the final mastering touch comes from the hands of the legendary Bob Ohlsson, Motown sound engineer during the years 1965 and 1972. He has worked with leading artists including Stevie Wonder, Marvin Gaye, The Four Tops, The Temptations, Smokey Robinson & the Miracles, The Spinners and Gladys Knight & The Pips.

The result is 12 tracks that stretch from the best of the Supremes to early Jackson 5, from deep soul ballads of Doris Duke to ground-breaking northern soul. These are the classic sounds and influences that The Pepper Pots have sprinkled with new life and the result is some of their best songs to date.

With 300 live appearances and counting, The Pepper Pots have moved audiences in concerts around the globe: Tokyo, Osaka, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Berlin, Paris, London, Moscow, Helsinki, Vienna, Verona, Prague, Bern, Barcelona, Madrid... as well as featuring at major festivals such as South by Southwest (Austin-Texas), Summer Jam Reggae Festival (Cologne-Germany), Rock for People (Hradec Králové - Czech Republic), BAM Festival (Barcelona-Catalonia), Black Music Festival (Girona-Catalonia) and many others.

If you haven't heard The Pepper Pots yet, then now is the perfect time to catch that 'soul train'! With a 4 album catalog under their belt now, you've got a plethora of tunes to dance to. Be sure to pick up their first Megalith release 'Shake It!' as well, for their smooth ska / soul blend sounds as well.
