With willing ears, and weary eyes, I willingly welcome you to today’s wonderful installment of Tune in Tuesday features six wonderfully random albums.
Yes, that is a lot of W words and well, who wouldn’t want to be wowed by the power of the words which Webster’s willingly writes in their wholesome and widely read who’s who of words.
The Black Keys
Two white dudes from Akron, Ohio should not sound this damn good playing grungy, bluesy, inspired garage rock. Or in this case, basement rock where this album was actually recorded. But, alas, they do and we are better for it. If you are not a fan of The Black Keys, immediately stop reading and check out their music.
The Derek Trucks Band
He is a child prodigy, nephew of Allman Brothers drummer Butch Trucks, touring partner of Eric Clapton, Grammy Award winner, and barely over 30. Yeah, we should hate him but he is so good that you can’t help but love his work.
Recycled Recipes EP
This six song EP of covers is a great showcase of Donovan’s smooth vocals. The song selection is superb, with such gems as, “Wonder Where the Lions Are” Theologians”, and “Fortunate Son”, to name a few.
Sunrise Over Sea
John Butler Trio
This little known Australian band is pretty impressive and debut at number 1 in his native home. He has got kind of a jammy feel to his playing with stand out tracks such as “Peaches & Cream”, “What You Want”, and “Seeing Angles.
Before the Frost/Until the Freeze
The Black Crowes
The latest album from this old school Georgia rock band. Recorded in the legendary Levon Helm’s Woodstock barn studio, this 2 disc album (one disc, one digital download) is packed with rootsy, rocking, classic Crowes as well as a few slow tempo country tinged tunes.
Corinne Bailey Rae
Corinne Bailey Rae
This is the deftly produce debut album of the silky smooth yet funkily refined Corinne Bailey Rae. Her voice is comfortable and inviting and the music is perfect accompaniment but never over the top or running interference to mask the vocals.
Read, review, and respond.
Great music awaits!
