CD Review: Thievery Corporation Invite You To Visit "The Temple Of I And I"

The Washington D.C.-based group, Thievery Corporation return with their new album titled "The Temple Of I And I." They have gathered a cult following, without the success of a hit single, which is due to their live shows and rich, vast influence of music. Their latest set of songs carry an island sound as Thievery Corporation set up camp at Geejam Studios in Jamaica.
 
The new 15-song release begins with the deep bass groove of "Thief Rockers," before heading into the dance beats of "Letter To The Editor," which features the debut of newcomer Racquel Jones. Thievery Corporation gets funky with the seventies vibe of "Strike The Root," then bring in the smooth hip-hop tones of "Ghetto Matrix." The band reverts back to the island groove of "The True Sons Of Zion" and delivers the silky R&B-flavored "Love Has No Heart" and "Lose To Find." The album finishes up with Racquel Jones returning for the reggae movement of "Road Block," before closing with the up-tempo island vibe of "Drop Your Guns."
 
Thievery Corporation have a 14-date European tour coming up in February, before returning to the U.S. this summer for a few festivals. The new album will be released on February 10th through ESL Records. To find out more, please visit thieverycorporation.com.
