Song of the Day from Nashville’s Jessie Early

Indie pop artist Jessie Early is releasing her new EP Wild Honey on March 31. “Body Can’t Hold” is one of the debut singles. Early is from Nashville, where many great artists have emerged through the years. There seems to be a bit of musical magic in that place, and it looks like Jessie got a wave of the wand.

Mad Love for Depeche Mode – Throwback Thursday – SOTD

Let’s talk about Depeche Mode…

The band has been around for 30+ years and has a new record out called Spirit. The band also has the rude celebrity of being linked to bad line dancing at weddings, albeit with the tremendous song “Personal Jesus”, usually crunched somewhere in between “Shout” and the “Macarena”.

Irish TBT: Black 47

James Connolly – Black 47

Tomorrow is St. Patrick’s Day, and I’ve got some proud Irish genes, so this one was an easy choice for me.  25 years ago, Black 47 broke onto the NYC music scene with a distinctive blend of Irish rock, punk and reggae.  Larry Kirwan and Chris Byrne had connections with The Pogues and Dexy’s Midnight Runners and were filled with Irish Nationalistic pride.

I have no idea who Bobby Shoebotham is, but I am pretty damn sure I want to party with him and his buds. “Drown” is a feverish punk rock ditty that’s an absolute blast to listen to.  It’s the first song off of his forthcoming EP and leaves me thirsting for more.

SOTD: The Bats – No Trace

New Zealand’s The Bats Return with No Trace

Today I review a wonderful new song by New Zealand based band, The Bats. At first sound the dreamy light melody of “No Trace” has a distinctive signature melody. What more could you expect from a band who has been around since 1982 and never once changed their members.
