There's something to be said for cheese. Taken at face value it can make for kitsch, but take it too seriously and you'll just end up looking stupid. It's a bit of a mystery what side of the line Los Angeles's Groove Divinities stand on, but for their sake, let's go with kitsch. Using a vintage font on the cover and dressed up like '70s pimps, it's hard not to immediately think of Austin Powers or some other parody movie. However, the mood matches the music. The duo reaches back to the heyday of soul to set up their grooves, and proceed to try as hard as can be to pull out the smooth-as-silk vocals. It's pretty hit and miss for the most part, the emotions overwrought, but if you give them that kitsch factor, it's quite alright.
