New Music: Alex Clare – “Too Close” aka Microsoft Internet Explorer Song

27 Mar

If you’ve seen the new Microsoft Internet Explorer commercials and wondered what that song is that you find yourself enamored with, it’s “Too Close” by Alex Clare.  Yes, me, a person who is not a fan of dubstep actually enjoys this track.  But really it is the soulful voice of the British singer-songwriter throughout his record, The Lateness Of The Hour, that has me constantly listening to the disc that dabs all over from soul, dubstep, electronic and jazz.  Personally I dig “Hands Are Clever,” “I Love You” and “Whispering” plus he covers Prince’s “When Doves Cry” but what really is a HUGE bonus on the record is it was produced by Diplo and Switch aka Major Lazer.  How wicked awesome is that!

Lately I’ve really been digging White Denim, the four-piece from Austin, Texas. Love their sound and can’t get enough of the new album D.

Countdown to Bonnaroo: 15 Days – Artist of the Day: Galactic

25 May

If you’re ready to get funked up, Galactic will do just that.  The New Orleans legends who were part of the inaugural Bonnaroo and a staple band throughout the decade long run of the festival return to bring some funk and jazz to the masses.  Exuding energy and pure happiness, Galactic shows are memorable for sure and just about always include surprise guests sitting in for a song or the whole show.  Knowing the grand stage of Bonnaroo, I think we can all rest assured this will be one performance to catch.

Sunday 3:30 PM – 5:00 PM – What Stage
