We all know Dan Auerbach as a member of the Black Keys and The Barnburners, but as a solo musician, he delivers some catchy blues and folk-inspired music. The song here above; ” Stand By My girl” Is a fine grooving laid-back pop-folk song. Easy to listen and built with roots instruments
Southern Rock ‘n Roll band Banditos released a new album called Visionland last year on the Bloodshot Record label. I recently discovered this album and I’m impressed with the laid-back grooves of this Alabama based band. Especially how their single “Fine Fine Day’, goes steadily rollin’ all four and a half minutes long.
This band delivers rock n’ roll mixed with garage punk how we like it. Straight-forward, no bullshit and above all catchy. Baby Shakes halin’ from New York City features Mary on lead vocals and guitar, Judy on lead guitar and vocals, Claudia on bass and vocals, and Ryan on drums. Last year they released a fine album Y’all like called “Turn it Up”
Kevin Morby brings us fine folk-infused songs since 2014. The former Bass player of indie folk band Woods and frontman of The Babies, really makes his mark as a solo musician. With influences like Bob Dylan, Lou Reed, and Nina Simone you find yourself listening to a blend of Folk, Americana and Roots songs. My favorite song: “Moonshiner”
As his name may reveal Guitarist and songwriter Al Dual has the ability to switch from one musical style to another. Though Al originates from Spain, he is fluent with “the universal language of music”. According tot his bio “Al’s musical roots first stemmed from ‘50’s Rock & Roll and promptly branched to Rockabilly, Blues, Surf, Western Swing, Jazz, Classical.
Punk Rock Heroes changed into Bluesmen with a brand new debut L.P. “This American Blues”. I’m talking about LA-based band Ford Madox Ford containing former The Dils member Chip Kinman. The LP’s single “Dark American Night” is already a true trademark song for this punk blues band. Listen to it here!
