This one is in the vein of KRIT’s “Soul Food” from Cadillactica in a lot of ways. It frames food from the soul–specifically the traditional Sunday Dinner–as sustenance for growth and development. It also focuses on how those dinners can touch your soul as well as your stomach.
“Sunday Dinner” starts off with an audio clip of one of the matriarchs in Hondo’s family, then dives straight into the good times he’s been through with those Sunday dinners being the starting point. Sonically, you can tell that Hondo, as my mother used to say, put his foot into this one. There’s enough love and respect in this one to remind even the most-frigid of personalities of their childhood or family. There’s also enough nostalgia within the track to remind anyone of their transition from child to adult and the (hopefully) positive effect it had on their family.
This track is to appear on Hondo’s upcoming album. If the rest of the project is anything like this, you know it’ll be soulful and nourishing. Check out the song below and remember to support dope music in all its forms.
