Soul Track Mind / Press

"Soul Track Mind's performances are not just stylish trumpet or sax solos and blurry guitar riffs; they are a cultural exclamation point about American music."

"A hot, horn-fed, electric guitar-etched platter of hard modern R&B. Unbreakable continually urges groovers to “Turn It Up,” and we have – repeatedly. From the explosive garage soul of opener “Ode to Youth,” which makes the Black Keys sound white, to the acoustic guitar-lined thump of the closing title track, Unbreakable’s propulsive 31 minutes arrive without an audible seam or crack in the sonic veneer. The group’s musical arc, tracking 2010 debut Ghost of Soul and last April’s self-titled sophomore disc, nets nothing but fireworks."

"Donovan Keith’s passionate, emotional and powerful vocals ... convincingly sell you every song on their new album Unbreakable.... Soul Track Mind is the real deal and you owe it to yourself to buy this album."
