Van Hunt and Mara Hruby link up with LA production team/studio hounds The Decoders for a silky rework of Rotary Connection‘s take on Queen Aretha‘s emblematic smash “Respect” (covers on covers on covers.) Hunt & Hruby blaze some candied melodies over the group’s lush arrangements of mellow-horns, fuzzed-out six-strings and ascending harmonies that recall the brooding, yet sweet psychadelic soul of Minnie Riperton. And on that note, we happen get this groove from their forthcoming homage to the 7-octave virtuoso vocalist Adventures From Paradise: A Tribute To Minnie Riperton. So keep your eyes and ear on a swivel for that, as we’ll have more on the album and its release date soon. Watch the studio visuals for The Decoder’s take on “Respect,” featuring Van Hunt and Mara Hruby. Cop the single via Bandcamp today.
