Now Playing: Life in Film – “Alleyway”

27 Apr

Life in Film. You’re going to want to get to know this English quartet. While they’ve been a group for a handful of years, they just recently made it stateside with their contagious song “Get Closer.” And now you can also open your ears to “Alleyway” which will grow on you and have on repeat all day. Ironically their first US tour dates started last week as they lend support to The Wombats. Grab the full slew of dates HERE.

Happy Monday everyone!

Now Playing: Jungle cover Mark Ronson ft. Bruno Mars -“Uptown Funk”

10 Mar

Click play below and check out Jungle’s rendition of Mark Ronson’sUptown Funk” ft. Bruno Mars from BBC Radio 1 earlier today. Jungle live is one of the more fun shows I can remember seeing in the last year and if you read the blog you know how big of a Mark Ronson fan I am. This version I can dig and I hope they start performing this on tour.

New Music: Mumford & Sons – “Believe”

9 Mar

It has arrived! Give a listen below to the lead single off Wilder Times, the upcoming third album from Mumford & Sons due out May 4. The four fellas put the folk aside in favor of a more electric and rock sound which I personally think will help elevate their live shows and well warranted headlining slots. Read more about the new found sound from Billboard, HERE.

Now Playing: My Morning Jacket – “Big Decisions”

3 Mar

New Music Tuesday is off to a rocking start with the official release of “Big Decisions” from My Morning Jacket. The track is the first off the upcoming album, The Waterfall, due out on May 4.

Revisited: Dave Matthews Band – 7.15.14 – Jacksonville, FL (Video)

16 Jul

I sure hope if you weren’t there you were watching online. I have seen the Dave Matthews Band dozens of times live but this was the first time getting a chance to see the special summer two set tour, an evening of acoustic and electric. I for one loved it. Thanks to modern technology and Yahoo, fans had the chance to stream the entire concert live as part of the company’s initiative with Live Nation to broadcast 365 concerts in 365 days on Yahoo Screen. This show was numero uno! And as luck would have it, I somehow managed to get from Vegas to Jacksonville overnight to attend!

The acoustic set was ridiculous at least for my DMB taste. Unless you’ve been fortunate to catch a Dave & Tim show, chances are you’ve never heard these songs live or acoustic. With just Dave & Tim on stage, the show opened with Bartender (I swear more than half the shows I’ve been to have opened with this song) before the whole band joined for Two Step, Snow Outside, Satellite, Stolen Away On 55th and 3rd, #27, Sweet, Tripping Billies and What Would You Say. The guys sounded great, looked like they were having an absolute blast and the set was a great balance to get the crowd all warmed up and feeling good before breaking into the electric set.

After heading back into the arena following a set break, it felt like you were JUST heading into the show. I mean seriously, it was like two separate DMB concerts. Oddly enough I don’t think the venue knew what to prepare for as the great beer shortage of 2014 may have occurred at the arena last night! Haha. On to set two! Dave returned solo to open with Minarets before having the whole band return to break into One Sweet World. From the second set the highlights for me were the Seven > Belly Belly Nice > Crush (what a jam), Warehouse, the always amazing cover of Peter Gabriel’s Sledgehammer and the tour debut of Belly Full. All in another great DMB show with some old, some new, some fast, some slow.

Here’s a video of “Sledgehammer” I shot.  Hope you like it.
