Fill me in…


The #indie channel saw the most traffic this past week and one of my favorite sounds shared was a song called, “Florida” by Luke Temple. He’s been signed to the label Secretly Canadian (which also houses Major Lazer and The War on Drugs) for around 5 years. Speaking of “The War on Drugs”, Luke has a couple lines in the YouTube description that mention the unsettling number of deaths from the drug trade in Mexico...could be the inspiration behind the song.

Moving over to the #rock channel, @slayslot reminded us of the familiar sound Oasis provided the masses. Not much needs to be said about Oasis, so I’ll let the music speak for itself. Here’s “Champagne Supernova”:

What else is going on?

 

Perhaps some of the biggest buzz in the music world was around the release of NWA’s biopic, Straight Outta Compton. The film on the one of most influential hip-hop groups of all time impressed music and movie critics alike so it’s definitely on our “to watch” list.


Yesterday, Tame Impala released a video for the first song off their latest album, Currents. The song, “Let It Happen” (as well as the whole album) was very well received and the video portrays an interesting take on the song, painting a new picture for the sound in my mind. Definitely worth checking out...

To all Stevie Wonder fans, your last chance to see him in the flesh may be coming up as he just announced his final “Songs in the Key of Life” tour. He’ll be finishing the tour with a performance at Madison Square Garden towards the end of November and I can only imagine how special that will be. As one of my personal favorite artists and an inspiration to many musicians today, I sure hope it’s not his very last tour.

Don’t sleep on…


To all #blues fans, The Delta Saints might be a name you want to get familiar with. The Nashville natives released their latest album, Bones, a couple weeks ago and they definitely do the genre (self described as psychedelic voodoo rock) justice.  In my opinion, their sound is an awesome and energetic blend, incorporating bits and pieces from influences that are staple to roots music. If this your thing, don’t sleep on The Delta Saints.
