Life Lessons, the debut full-length album from Portland's Brownish Black, has been a long time in the making: two years, to be exact. But during all that time in the studio—recording, mixing, and mastering—Brownish Black have been staying busy, launching a successful Kickstarter campaign and performing regularly throughout the city. Frontman M.D. Sharbatz relocated from Detroit to Portland in 2008 and shortly thereafter formed the band, along with bassist/music director Mub Fractal. Brownish Black have since evolved into an eight-piece band, horn section and all, bringing together the best elements of classic R&B and Detroit garage rock. Life Lessons is a more polished recording than their first two EPs, having been produced by veteran studio man John Neff, but the looseness and slightly unhinged energy remains. They'll be celebrating its release tonight, offering a formal introduction to what has, over time, grown into one of Portland's most dynamic retro-soul bands. SANTI ELIJAH HOLLEY
