At no point on Black Pumas do Quesada and Burton shy away from signifiers of the past. Rhythms roll with the tight precision of the Hi Records rhythm section, “Fire” is punctuated with horns straight out of Stax, “OCT 33” finds Burton obliquely nodding at Otis Redding’s “Fa-Fa-Fa-Fa-Fa (Sad Song),” the title of its opener “Black Moon Rising” echoes Creedence Clearwater Revival’s doomsday classic “Bad Moon Rising.” Black Pumas are too clever to succumb to pure nostalgic pandering, though. They pointedly avoid the pitfalls that plague well-intentioned retro-soul records, favoring feel over authenticity, playing as much for the head as the heart.

Chalk much of this heady aesthetic up to the duo’s origins as a studio project. A longtime Austin fixture—he played guitar in Grupo Fantasma, who won a Grammy for Best Latin Rock Album in 2011—Quesada started assembling tracks at his studio Electric Deluxe, casting a net for a suitable singer once his ideas took the shape of a song. Friends connected him with Burton, a singer/songwriter who busked his way through the West Coast before settling in central Texas.
