The Daptone Records family has made a name for themselves through inserting sheer, insatiable soul into everything that they do. We’re not talking about soul music necessarily, but the spirit and the soul of the music is undeniable and and wholly engrossing. With the announcement of a gospel dropping on February 5th, we had to delve into it. “Whether you’re talking about hip-hop, country & western, blues or Mozart, all music tries to do the same basic thing: put feeling into sound. The Como Mamas do that just about as close to perfect as you can,” Daptone founder Gabriel Roth explains.
Ester Mae Smith and sisters Angela Taylor and Della Daniels make up the Como Mamas, the gospel trio out of Mississippi that will be releasing Get An Understanding. ”There are only three instruments on this recording: The powerful, raspy voice of Ester Mae Smith, the deep soothing voice of Angela Taylor, and the energetic, spirited vocals of Della Daniels.”
Get An Understanding will be released worldwide on Daptone Records, February 5, 2013 on CD, LP and digital platforms.
