The album does not come out until February but here is another first look of what you will be hearing. With a 70’s vibe that will have you digging out your Roberta Flack records, this one is a stunner.
We can’t think of a better way to get the new year cranking up than to start with Beth Hart’s scorching live version. This is from her Live at the Albert Hall release. It is very much worth checking out.
Brandi Carlile is the most nominated female artist at the upcoming 61st Grammy Awards with six nominations including Album Of The Year (By The Way, I Forgive You), Record Of The Year (“The Joke”), the song of the year (“The Joke”), Best Americana Album, Best American Roots Song and Best American Roots Performance. And yes, there is still time to get on the bandwagon.
Snakewater – Girl Like You
Dirty blues from Manchester England. There is a touch of Led Zeppelin, Bad Company, Peter Green and Gary Moore in their sound.
Lee Aaron – I’m A Woman
Hard Rock and Heavy Metal Queen Lee Aaron absolutely kills this Koko Taylor classic. “Shake hands with the devil, make him crawl in the sand.” Indeed.
The Bad Somethings – Let It Roll
Just about every 70’s and early 80’s is represented here, and it is awesome. Cheap Trick, Kiss, Bachman Turner Overdive, check, and check. Need more proof? “Let It Roll” is an oscure hit from the obscure 70’s Rock and Glam band Albatross. And oh yeah, lots of cowbell.
RHR (Redfern, Hutchinson, & Ross) – She Painted The Moon
Don’t sleep on these guys simply because they are miss cast often times in the AOR (Alum Oriented Rock) category. They rock with the best of them.
The Rumjacks – Cold London Rain
Enter into this carefully, these guys might become your next favorite party band if you are not careful. Full of Celtic, Folk, and Punk Rock swagger these guys stand pint for pint with The Dropkick Murphy’s.
It’s Christmas and no one can fix it. A Christmas song even Grinchs’ can get behind. “Coming back from the country full of good food and lousy beer.” And yes, that is Jackson Browne singing in the background.
From the highly excellent blue ray/DVD Live at the Royal Albert Hall
Yola is one of the new acts that part of Dan Auerbachs group of musicians at Easy Eye Sound. Her new album, Walk Through the Fire Is due out February, 2019.
