Sleepy Brown, 'Mr. Brown' (Purple Ribbon/Virgin)

6
Mr. Brown
Critical Mass
Label: Purple Ribbon/Virgin

by Will Hermes

With his Marvin Gaye tenor, Curtis Mayfield falsetto, and Isaac Hayes dome, the hook-singing OutKast cohort and producer (as a member of Organized Noize) comes on like a lovable, if genetically engineered, soulman on his long-brewing debut. Sleepy's a modest dude, happily playing third string on his own single ("Margarita") behind Big Boi and Pharrell. And if the songs aren't indelible, the floating-pool-chair vibe and digitally morphed pre-disco flavor make for a seamless backyard-BBQ backdrop.
