Album cover artwork for Silk SonicBruno Mars and Anderson .Paak are a match made in soul heaven: engaging, vibrant and with a self-awareness that stops the nostalgia from becoming a tired exercise in repetition.

An Evening With Silk Sonic basks in the impeccable chemistry that showcases both artists’ obvious respect and devotion to the genre. Undeniably smooth vocals paired with surprisingly humorous lyrical work make the record a joyful delight, in which Silk Sonic pay homage to their muses so well, it’s hard to remember that they aren’t in fact a product of the 1970s.
