The term neo-soul usually brings to mind late-’90s sexy excess: D’Angelo’s nude “Untitled (How Does It Feel)” confessional, Lauryn Hill proclaiming everything to be everything. A decade later, though, Anthony Hamilton—a backup singer on D’Angelo’s mythical Voodoo tour—is still working wonderfully in that tradition, against the grain of much of contemporary R&B. His latest record, The Point Of It All, is due out this December, and features actual basslines, back-up singers, and orchestration. If you want to remember what that’s like, check out Hamilton live. In the past, he’s really torn up the stage with soul, and given some of the tracks on the new record, like the first single, “Woo,” it shouldn’t be any different this time around.
