The Foreign Exchange are known for switching their style up from one album to the next, and they did it once again on their 2015 release Tales From the Land of Milk and Honey. The habitual musical line-steppers didn't follow any rules on Tales From the Land of Milk and Honey but included a mash-up of soul, R&B, funk, electronica, soulful house, disco and everything in between. They borrowed from different genres, eras and artists to create something entirely of The Foreign Exchange on a mostly uptempo project with the express goal of making you move. And move we did from beginning to end listening to standouts such as "Milk and Honey," "Work It To the Top," "Asking For a Friend," "Body," "As Fast As You Can" -- OK, the entire album. Frequent collaborator Zo! joined Nic on production, and his inclusion in the creative process was both seamless and genius.
Tales From the Land of Milk and Honey is Nicolay and Phonte having the most fun they've ever had on a record and you can not only hear it in the music but you can feel it as well. -- Butta
