The Negro Problem - Welcome Black album download
Where the shimmering thematics of "Fox Hills" prepare the listener for a nice, easy glide through "Ride 1," as side one is entitled, once Heidi Rodewald begins singing in her faux-theatrical voice about remembering this song, you know something is up.
This album has an average beat per minute of 109 BPM (slowest/fastest tempos: 70/138 BPM). See the BPM profile of this album. Tracklist - Welcome Black.
The Negro Problem is the brain child of Mark Stewart (aka Stew) and performs an intriguing blend of psychedelic rock, funk, motown r&b, and Bacharach-style pop. The band's name is meant to be ironic, as the music industry doesn't seem to know what to do with a band fronted by a black man that doesn't necessarily perform what gets typically shoehorned as "black music" in the modern segregated music industry.

The Negro Problem- who curiously feel they can get away with touting such a blatantly offensive bandname because one of their members is of African descent- have slowly carved out a (miniscule) niche for themselves in the wilds of . over the course of three albums by colliding mellow lite-soul/jazz hooks with cutesy twee-pop harmonies. But as the old saying goes, the jokes get old while the bitter aftertaste will forever remain. If it's soul-pop you want, you'll have better luck checking your grocer's freezer.
As always with the Negro Problem, there's a big paradox built into their music. The songs here are mellow pop (more mellow than their previous CD "Post Minstrel Syndrome"), with bright melodies and vocal harmonies to die for; both Stew's lead vocals and the backing vocals are gorgeous. The lyrics, however, are full of sarcasm, irony, and cleverness, to the point of often being arch. So there's a cognitive dissonance- surely deliberate on the musicians' part- between the pretty melodies and sweet singing, and the super-sarcastic lyrics.
