Foo Fighters Cancels All European After Grohl Injury

The Foo Fighters European tour is going to be finished early after Dave Grohl broke his ankle recently. He was able to make it through his last concert with a broken ankle, but he won’t be able to finish the tour with it. The pain and the limping will be too unbearable for him to […]

Stevie Nicks says,”Every band should have a girl in it!”

People have all kinds of opinions when it comes to music, singers and bands. Some music fans prefer bands with all girls and others prefer bands with all men. What if you were to mix the two genders and have both in one band? According to Stevie Nicks of Fleetwood Mac, every band should have […]

Future People by Alabama Shakes

“Future People” starts off with some funky guitar lines and a basic backbeat. Howard’s vocals start off very high, showcasing her falsetto. One reason I’m highlighting this song is because of some the chances the band takes musically – there’s some heavily distorted bass on it that really shakes things up in parts. The keyboards […]

Believe (Nobody Knows) by My Morning Jacket

“Believe (Nobody Knows)” kicks off “The Waterfall”. It’s a very positive and uplifting song, which is something Jim James usually tries to embody in his music. This track will probably become a live favorite since it’s easy to see how this song could be taken up a few notches in concert. I think the studio […]

Compound Fracture by My Morning Jacket

“Compound Fracture” is the second track on the album and is an example of the band progressing to a point they weren’t at a few albums ago. The song features keyboards in its main riff, which is unusual for a MMJ song where the keyboards are usually used as more of an accent. As the […]

My Morning Jacket

My Morning Jacket formed back in the late ’90s and released their first album in 1999. The band has seen a few line-up changes over the past 16 years, but has stayed intact with the same five guys since 2004. It was this then new current lineup that put out my favorite album from My […]

She recently released a new single called “High by the Beach.” It is the second song featured in her future album entitled “Honeymoon.” Prior to the release of her single, Del Rey teased her fans with details about songs from her forthcoming album that […]

Gimme All Your Love by Alabama Shakes

“Gimme All Your Love” slows things down musically. Howard’s vocals attack over a larger range during this track, really highlighting her abilities as a vocalist. The song highlights the more soulful part of the band, and has some similarities to some of the music the Afghan Whigs have done in the past. Howard does a […]

Don’t Wanna Fight by Alabama Shakes

“Don’t Wanna Fight” is a very smart choice as the first single on the new album, since it is probably one of the best songs that will be released this year. This is not your typical radio fodder. The track is driven by an almost funky bass and drums, along with some nice guitar riffs. […]

Alabama Shakes Band!

Alabama Shakeshails from Alabama, and they have a blues-based rock sound with some Southern soul and a little country baked into the mix. The band has drawn comparisons to the Black Keys, Drive-By Truckers and even Sharon Jones and the Dap-Kings. They are led by Brittany Howard on vocals and guitar, and she has a […]
