Frank Migliorelli and The Dirt Nappers are going strong with a third album coming just around the bend. The Things You Left Behind is projected for a February release and is set to give listeners more of the soulful blend of roots rock influences that the band so effortlessly navigates. Ahead of its release, Migliorelli and the band are releasing a brand new single in the form of ‘She Moves Like a Mystery’ in order to kick things off. One of ten tracks from off of the forthcoming LP, ‘She Moves Like a Mystery’ is available now for purchase or streaming via iTunes, Amazon, and more.
The cool, subtle sway of the tune might evoke a sort of Memphis soul, as Migliorelli himself recants. Indeed, the evidence is laid on the table through the song’s deeply soulful sound, although it comes across more like a gentle breeze than a barreling train. Each way of approaching soul has its spot in music and its champions who ferry them forward so well, but Migliorelli and the Dirt Nappers’ soft, laidback vibe is instantly infectious. There’s a folk-rock air about it in the way Migliorelli approaches his lyricism and vocal delivery with poetic grace, a full but not overpowering band sound backing him up and making it all sound real pretty. If ‘She Moves Like a Mystery” is evidence enough, than the outlet’s upcoming album is definitely one to keep an ear out for.
