The London Souls.

The London Souls' members aren't from London; instead, they form a drum-and-guitar duo based in Brooklyn, where they carve their music out of the best of '60s psychedelic rock and soul.

Tash Neal (guitar) and Chris St. Hilaire (drums) have extraordinary communication live. On record, their music sounds like an undiscovered gem of British psychedelic rock or a lost Cream song.

The London Souls formed in 2008 and released a debut album in 2012. The band's new album, Here Come The Girls, was finished a while ago, but before it could be released Neal was in a hit-and-run accident from which he's only now fully recovering. In this session, hear The London Souls perform live on stage at World Cafe Live in Philadelphia.
