There’s a poetic purity that runs through PAPA’s punk-meets-soul album, A Good Woman is Hard to Find, suggesting devious truths and well told lies. Singer and drummer Darren Weiss’ earnest vibrato often takes on a Springsteen-like growl in its best moments while in each song’s groove a dangerous sexiness lives. A Good Woman is Hard to Find is an album as ripe for romance as it is partying. It has moments of aggression and simple bliss, with a classic sense of harmony, melody and style. It’s a modern, rough-and-tumble take on classic soul. With the help of Weiss’ musical partner, friend-since-childhood, bassist Danny Presant, the tracks gain a hip-hop sensibility that separates PAPA from simple revivalists and instead into timeless territory. It’s an exacting and revelatory ode to what’s wrong with modern romance but what won’t stop one from giving it another go.
