Old sounds made new at the Tractor | Concert review

St. Paul and the Broken Bones played the Tractor Tavern Saturday with Radio Raheem.

St. Paul and the Broken Bones played the Tractor Tavern Saturday with Radio Raheem.

Neo-soul band St. Paul and the Broken Bones’ first time playing in the state of Washington was Saturday, and a sold-out crowd at the Tractor Tavern rewarded the Birmingham, Ala., band for their journey by showering them with affection.

It was a night of old sounds made new, especially with Seattle band Radio Raheem opening things up. They’re a quirky outfit that mashes together everything from 80s music and a little rap with a little neo-soul/funk vibe. It’s a mouthful, but it’s reflective of the band’s multiple influences, all built around highlighting frontwoman Josie Howell’s commanding vocals.
