Video: Muscle Shoals – The Documentary Trailer

Any music history buff will want to take the next two minutes to watch the official trailer for Muscle Shoals, a music documentary appearing at Sundance this weekend.


Now Playing: SW/MM/NG – “Some Dreams Come True”

17 Jan

Happy Thursday y’all! It may be winter still but if this song doesn’t get you in the mood for sunshine and warm weather, I don’t know what to tell you. Click play, listen, smile and daydream!

My Review of The Black Keys in Vegas SEVEN

13 Jan

Just before 2012 ended I had the opportunity to see The Black Keys in concert, yet again. This time at The Joint at the Hard Rock Hotel on New Year’s Eve weekend. Check out my review of night one which ran in the most recent issue of Vegas SEVEN.

For the record, I’ll never pass on a chance to see The Black Keys in concert.  Each show may be very similar in comparison but seeing them in front of 80,000 screaming fans or 400, they sound just as good and you never leave disappointed.

New Outkast, well sort of….”Pink Matter” Frank Ocean ft. Andre 3000 remix ft. Big Boi

12 Jan

Been going crazy about this for the last couple days. I mean it’s as close to an Outkast song as we’ve got right now. Thanks Frank Ocean! So check it, Big Boi just dropped the remix of Frank Ocean’s “Pink Matter” which already featured Andre 3000. What more can I say but listen, love and repeat.

Happy Birthday David Bowie and thanks for the new music!

8 Jan

Happy Birthday David Bowie!  66 today and what does he offer up to fans?  How about some new music! “Where Are We Now?” off the upcoming album, The Next Day, his first in nearly a decade.  Give a listen….


Music Monday: Bad Books – “Forest Whitaker”

7 Jan

Happy Monday and now you get to have this gem stuck in your head like it has been in mine for the couple months. “Forest Whitaker” off the Bad Books album II.

Now Playing: Shovels & Rope – “Birmingham”

4 Jan

Happy Friday! The first one of 2013 so why not put a little new music in your ears, Shovels & Rope. The duo of Michael Trent and Cary Ann Hearst just opened for The Lumineers on NYE in Denver and I gather you’re going to see them appear on a bunch of festival lineups this year (just added yesterday to Wakarusa). Their debut album O’ Be Joyful dropped in July of 2012 and is a diamond in the rough if you haven’t discovered it already. Plus since they are part of Dualtone Music Group, expect only good things to come for these two. First Playlist of 2013

HELLO 2013! Why not some good tunes to get the new year off in the right direction. Here is a collection of music I’ve really been digging as of late and hopefully some of the musicians become household names this year. Enjoy!
