    I discovered the band about a year ago but I lost all my music (laptop stolen). I can't remember any of the band's songs or albums or its name.......

    I'm pretty sure they were black guys (the vocals sounded like black guys). And more than one of the members would participate in the vocals.

    They used all kinds of instruments. They were modern and riding on the edge of music, very progressive. They sounded indie-electronic-jazz-rock-progressive-modern-Rnb… I know that sounds ridiculous but I'm serious... They were really freaking amazing. One of the album's artwork featured the color red, heavily. All I can say is I think it was a group of African American/black guys cuz their voices seemed like black people's singing voices. I remember that the name of the band or the names of their songs were unusual. Anyone know any bands like this?

    Oh. The reason I'm even asking is because I am making a mixtape for my lover and I need one more song. I just need one more song!! haha I really want this band on the CD because their vocals were so amazing. Plus, the style of music was just what my bf likes: smooth, not too fast, electronic. I believe the lyrics had some thought in them, too.

    How 'bout Soulive, back when they added Toussaint as a vocalist? (The album after this one?) I think it was Neal Evans that sang on No Place Like Soul with Toussaint. They went away from full-time vocalists afterwards, but always have guest singers on their sets.

    OMG! I had no idea that the lead singer of Bloc Party was black. Gay, yes - kinda sorta...

    How about Temper Trap? (although the lead singer is Indonesian, not black and the rest are white)

    Thank you all for your help. Though none of these are the band I'm thinking of, they're all great listens. I've been thinking of it all day and I came up with the tune to one of the songs... but none of the lyrics.

    And yes, I do have beautiful hair. Ladies should be jealous. It's like I'm doing drag all the time! haha icon_smile.gif
