Song Samples from the CD
This is Drunk Souls latest effort. Officially released in 2011 (Drunk Soul Records)
it certainly doesnít disappoint. This is one band from France that brings to the table a zany,
yet fun filled musical atmosphere via a polished sounding production that will have you jumping
in head first.
The opening track "Drifter SongĒ sets the stage rather well for this CD.
It was a great intro piece which was the perfect intro piece and had me well
focused for what lied ahead. All in all the whole CD is wonderfully simple a
nd just plain goofy but fun in a good way. This CD covers a wide range of musical
styles including hints of Ambient, Chill, Reggae, Rock, and even Pop. Ska, Musical
overtones reminded me a bit of Beck, Major Major, La Olla Express, Sublime and No Doubt.
There are some fantastic grooves on this CD which gives the whole release a very modern
indie-vibe. The musical front by singer DJaM is to die foras he has the perfect musical
personality needed for an effective front man. The vocal presence of DJam hold nothing
back and just works so well track for track I can honestly say this band has come up
with a signature sound so unique - Iíve never really heard anything quite like it before.

The Drunk Souls have got the mojo Ė end of subject! This CD will simply make your day a
better one. The strong suit of Drunk Souls is the infectious vibe and unique soulful
signature Sound. This is no doubt a powerful by-product of just being yourself musically.
10 star rating average Ė This CD gets 9 stars

Itís obvious these guys are perfectly fine just letting it all hang out on every track.
Thatís why they have so much potential.
