THE MAINSTAYS

The Mainstays

2014-02-09

  The Mainstays is based in Kalamazoo and for its debut, the band has made a self-titled album. Three-fifths of the group are alumni of the band Funktion and this sounds, not surprisingly, like a Funktion release.  Singer/songwriter, Andrew Schrock's distinctive vocals are what gives it away; but the placid R&B sound is similar as well. The Mainstays is an album of light neo-soul that doesn't demand much of its audience.       Rebecca Ruth
