I cannot stress to you how amazing Seattle’s The Dip are. If typing in all caps wasn’t the worst thing ever, I would do it just so you could realize (or just imagine me holding a Dip album to the sky screaming “yass bitch!”). If you listen to this 7-piece vintage-sounding soul group, you’ll probably have a similar reaction. At the very least, you’ll start tapping your foot with a smile as singer/guitarist Tom Eddy’s breathy soul vocals lulls you to the dance floor to shake that groove thang. Eddy definitely gets out of the way long enough to let the music breathe and fill up a room. Backed by a horn section called The Honeynutt Horns, the gang covers a range of sounds from high energy, bass-forward funk to casual stroll-through- King-William jazz inspired soul. They’re good. Really, really good. And if you’re looking to watch a band that knows how to simultaneously display remarkable musicianship and, you know, get down, this a show you won’t want to miss. With The Foreign Arm, Alamo City Soul Club, Friends of Sound Records.
