Peace, love, and soul from a slightly mysterious collective channeling Motown, folk, and just a dash of Soul II Soul. Deliciously uplifting, all songs (barring the intro number) are driven by a tender, quavering tenor, with synths and strings swelling to grand effect on “We” and “Michael & the Force.” It all builds to a splendid finish with “Love Is the End,” an epic, pulsing slab of downtempo that is both insistent and charmingly hesitant before it breaks down into a spaced-out echo-fest. A Race of Angels is truly a race unto itself.
