Legendary soul rebels DEXYS (the band formerly know as Dexys Midnight Runners)
fronted by mastermind KEVIN ROWLAND play in Antwerp, Belgium tonight. I’m really looking forward to the concert.
They’ll play their new excellent LP THE FEMININE DIVINE
in full, followed by a bunch of classics.
To get in the mood, I’m listening right now to that new flawless album,
and afterward to their magnum debut opus Searching For The Young

Famous British soul-pop combo DEXYS (1978–1986, 2003–present, and known
until 2012 as Dexys Midnight Runners) led by mastermind Kevin Rowland released
their 6th LP, titled The Feminine Divine
AllMusic says: “Nobody expects him to go back in time and deliver another classic
album like Too-Rye-Ay, but it doesn’t seem too much to ask for him to make a record
that has more zip than this. That being said, it’s always good to get another transmission
from the heart and soul of Kevin Rowland, even one lacking the sweat and excitement he usually delivers.” Score: 3.5/5.
TUTV: The 4 first songs are easy-going, feel good, sunlit tunes. But from track 5 on
until the closer Rowland takes a soft turn with bluesy musings and emotive lullabies.
Overall nothing to get wild about. It’s a relaxing record for relaxing moments. And
that’s fine by me.
