Your week has been missing a shot of good old fashioned soul music, hasn't it? Just be honest with yourself. It has. That's why you're about to be crazy about Nashville's Willie & the Giant and their debut single "Ain't Gonna Wait", which is lush with horns and smooth guitars, set off by frontman Will Stewart's vocals which never quite seem to fit against the music, in a staggered and staccato pattern that absolutely works for the chorus, where Stewart pleads that he ain't gonna wait no more. The vocals hurry over the horns, the horns push against the guitars and the organ, the whole song tilts forward a little bit like a drunk, but it all ends with a perfect chord and a perfect fade out.
The song you've been waiting for.
