What does it take to become one of the top neo-soul bands in the land? In the case of Fitz and the Tantrums, it's just about everything but guitars.

Led by songwriting and singing of Michael Fitzpatrick, and supplemented by the voice of Noelle Scaggs, Fitz and the Tantrums take the template of Motown and Stax soul and give it a hard, blue-eyed pop spin, reminiscent of Hall and Oates and Simply Red at times, but with a consistent punch, achieved without the help of electric guitars. The LA band isn't opposed to six-string action; it just doesn't need it. On Picking Up the Pieces, the debut album from 2010, Fitzpatrick takes aim at money grabbers, false promise makers and two-timing heart breakers, all the while throwing a party where churning emotions and sweaty expression are the main attraction.
