I’m Comin’, I’m Coming…

Alabama Shakes, feature

A quick apology for the lack of new music to sink your teeth into lately, but working on a redesign of the website has taken center stage. It’s almost complete though, and I think you guys are gonna like it. Thanks for your patience! Until then…

New Tunes: A. Shakes x J. White’s Backup = Rodriguez. It’s Science.

A fantastic new collab featuring Alabama Shakes Brittany Howard and singer-songwriter/back-up singer for Jack White Ruby Amanfu has produced a new seven inch release for Jack’s Third Man Records, out tomorrow(March 12th). The A- side is a cover of Rodriguez’s “I Wonder”, with a definite southern bop added to it, and the B-side is “When My Man Comes Home”, a song originally recorded by Memphis Minnie. You can find the latter below, while the Rodriguez cover is now streaming at Rolling Stone.com. Both very much worth checking out.

Song of Day – New(ish) Alabama Shakes

An ol’ fashioned Southern throwdown courtesy of Alabama Shakes. Always Alright is taken from the Silver Linings Playbook soundtrack but something tells me this version from their Saturday Night Live debut this past weekend has a little more oomph to it. Not too many people arguing that this was the best musical performance SNL has had in quite some time either. Music like this makes me miss my stoop.

Morning Hype! The Grammys……

I sat through more of this years Grammys than I have any other year. I don’t know why. I just did. Here are some random observations…

 

– Taylor Swift knows the words to every song ever. The cameramen made sure we knew this. Also, her arms remind me of Olive Oyl from old Popeye cartoons.

– Katy Perry has big boobs. The cameramen made sure we also knew this.

– Country music continues to not evolve. At all.

– Johnny Depp has the complexion of an Oompa Loompa now.

– Can’t tell if people like Bruno Mars are still biting Justin Timberlake’s style or if JT has adapted to the times after being out of music for so long. He sounded pretty good with a 5000 piece band though. The Tennessee Kids they were called. Not bad.

– My wife found LL Cool J to be quite dashing.

-Mumford and Sons? Really, people?

– It’s too bad Rihanna’s common sense doesn’t match her musical sense. The world is just waiting to throw her under the bus….

-Once a piece of shit, always a piece of shit.

– A nice tribute to Levon Helm of The Band. Too bad people don’t realize he’s written more than one good song.

-Network television and its commercials are horrible. Absolutely horrible. They sell a world that not only no one lives in, but no one actually wants to live in either.

– Kelly Clarkson performed a great version of Carole King’s (You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman. Still not as good as The Smalls though….(see below)

– fun. over Alabama Shakes for Best New Artist?  Presented ten minutes after fun. won another award and pointed to twelve years of touring as proof that anybody can make it if they stick with it? Easily the biggest embarrassment of the night. Slow head shakes, Grammys. Alabama slow.

The Black Keys played with Dr. John and cleaned up with their album El Camino. Which came out in 2011. Is rock music that hurting that two year old albums are still okay to be nominated? Jack White got ripped off.
