The 2013 release of the CD Soul Clap Its Hands takes the Motown and Memphis soul elements even further, both in writing style and production. If you know what to listen for, you’ll hear the musical references to Aretha Franklin, Smokey Robinson, and Marvin Gaye. The Starters recorded and mixed Soul with the talented Pierre de Reeder, bassist of Rilo Kiley, who has recording, mixing, and producing credits with Jenny Lewis, She & Him, Vampire Weekend, and Julian Casablancas.
