Every time I see the name Aloe Blacc flash past my eyes, I’m reminded of his star turn with the theme song to the truly missed HBO series How To Make It In America. “I Need A Dollar” and it’s everyday blues felt like gospel on Sunday and his career has steadied in an atmosphere of unappreciated goodness. So unappreciated that his latest EP Wake Me Up completely caught me by surprise and his single “Love Is The Answer” with Pharrell even more so.

“Answer” digs in with retro soul flavor and Blacc figuring the best way to solve matters of the heart. It’s smooth and catchy and another feather in his cap. Stream the single below and buy the EP on Amazon.
