CD Review: The Sometimes Family Have "Fun With Heartbreak"

Chicago soul comes alive with the new sounds of The Sometimes Family. Their new EP entitled “Fun With Heartbreak” brings together six songs that transport you to the heart of the city with seventies sounding R&B.

Beginning with “Love,” the vocals of Rebecca Sometimes are so appealing that you instantly find yourself wrapped up in her lyrics. The mellowness of “It’s Slow But It Feels Alright” is balanced by the upbeat, dance floor feel of “It’s A Wonder We Don’t Die From Dancing.” The band performs too safe until the full-out funk of “Stand Up.” The EP closes with the lounge-feel of “If It’s Love” as the song seems to just drift on.

The Sometimes Family has some live dates scattered over the next couple months. For more information, please visit the sometimesfamily.com.
