Having first made a splash in ’08 with the synth-addled electropop banger “Black and Gold,” Australian artist Sam Sparro took another fours years to bring out a follow-up, releasing Return to Paradise earlier this year. Back in town with a mustache and a clutch of tunes that flip between melancholic, glossy soul and ’70s disco-funk, he’s prepared to throw down retro-style. Suitable support comes in the shape of Jessica 6, starring Hercules and Love Affair’s Nomi Ruiz, cranking out hip-hop-influenced soul jams.
