Back to school

The Grammar teachers are back in town…and they never sounded better.

The voice, the reverb, the harmonious orchestration and that gentle electric guitar – they are all guaranteed to give you goosebumps, smiles and teary eyes.

I am definitely looking forward to their upcoming album.

The gift…

Yup, albeit at a much slower pace, I still like to handpick funky beats and musical treats.

So here’s one that will make you want to test that Bass setting on your player…my gift to you:

Late to the party

Sometimes, for whatever reason, my mind and ears refuse to be open to whatever is considered to be at the top of mainstream charts. It is at such times that I risk losing sights of some great performances just because I  chose to change the station when I hear that their song is about to start.

Today, yet again, I was proven wrong and figured that it is plain ignorance not to allow any musical piece its time in the sun ( or in one’s heart) just because they take the seat of honor in any radio station’s heavy rotation.

To add insult to injury, as I am typing this I have just realized that I was actually in love with this artist some 5-6 years ago, whilst her music was playing in the series finale of one of the most loved series – Six Feet Under.

Keep that beat and the legs will follow!

More of that soulful , calm and soothing voice.

More of that chilled, funky melody imbued with those awesome guitar solos.

More of that musical genius brought to you by Skye and Ross…

Welcome back guys, I have really missed you!

 

 

 

Shake it …like they do in Alabama

 

Sure, I knew their pathway-to-fame-song “Hold on”, however I never really paid much attention.

But the first time I really listened to them I had just 1 question: “Is that lead singer voice female or male?”(such was the richness of its vocal range). This intrigued me to the point that I just had to listen to their entire Sound and Color album and by the time I was done, I had to lift my jaw from the ground.

This is musical talent in its purest form. And I am hooked.

Ladies and gents, the Alabama Shakes ( or what it sounded like if Ceelo Green had a sister with a band) :
