Jazzy, beat-driven, dance music. Am I crazy or is this damn good? It’s like Daft Punk with an actual punk edge.
When I heard the lead and title track of Johnny Lloyd’s new EP, “Pilgrims,” I swore it was a cover song. It was so incredibly familiar. But it’s not. It’s just so good, so comfortable, that it feels like your favorite sweater.
The other songs on the EP are generally slower, and some (particularly “Tomorrow”) are even folky.
I’m loving this EP. I don’t know anything about the dude, but he makes some damn fine music.
New Misun. It would appear that this band is incapable of producing a bad song.
Seven minutes of Jill Scott. Doesn’t get much better than that…
And here’s some other stuff…
These guys have given us TONS of fantastic free-and-legal cover songs, for years, and they put on a terrific live show. So I feel like I should promote their newest album, Similar Skin.
But I tell you what, I’d do it anyway. It’s great!
I couldn’t find any streams of it, but of course they’ve got some live versions of it at the good ol’ archive. So here’s some cuts from Similar Skin and some covers from 2014.
This band IS music. If you love live songs, if you love to hear bands who love to play, this is for you.
