NOW PLAYING: Ida Mae – “Deep River” ft. Marcus King

4 Dec

Good Friday! A few weeks ago this gem of a track dropped from Ida Mae and featuring Marcus King! Definitely worth your ears today and so is getting lost in their Spotify profile to get familiar with this due from across the pond that now resides in Nashville. Pair them with Marcus King and well, give a listen for yourself and you’ll understand! Enjoy!

NOW PLAYING: MELVV – Nectarines ft. Royal & The Serpent

2 Dec

To be honest 2020 has been the year I listened least to my favorite thing, music. And that was validated by the Spotify end of the year stats. With a halt since my last show on February 28 I was struggling to get back into anything but the Grateful Dead. So for 8 months that’s about all I remember listening to outside of some country music. But then a burst of energy came and poof! I was ready to dive in and have been on a crusade to discover some new tunes. Here’s one of them, and already one of my favorites from 2020, MELVV – Nectarines ft. Royal & The Serpent . Stay strong, stay healthy and be safe. We’re going to be okay! Believe it!

Music Video: “This Life” by Vampire Weekend

20 May

Okay let’s call it what it is, Father of the Bride, one of the best albums of 2019! Vampire Weekend went ahead and created a masterpiece. First release in six years, re-upped with Ariel Reichstad to produce the record, some slick guest appearances, etc. but what excites me more than anything so far, the music video for “This Life” which was directed by Emmett Malloy!  Also the director for “Harmony Hall!”  Selfishly I’ve loved all the Malloy Brother films (Thicker Than Water and A Brokedown Melody, specifically) and they’ve directed some videos of some legendary songs so not surprising I love this video below. Give a watch and see how they also celebrated Passover in Palm Springs.

This Is America

7 May

This Donald, we’ve been waiting for someone like you! History already has a place for this video, this message, these lyrics, the symbolism and yet it’s still being written, dissected, shared, conversed, thrusted into the spotlight. Time to wake up! Thank you, Donald Glover aka Childish Gambino. The world is watching and listening.
