Single Of The Week: Electric Guest’s “This Head I Hold”

Danger Mouse is one of the more prolific producers out there today and this new track from the band “Electric Guest” definitely benefits from his soul. This track is catchy as hell and will crawl into your head for days! From the opening clink of the piano keys, this song sets itself up as classic R&B but has that neo-soul feel that is getting so popular these days. Download it here for free and enjoy!

Everyone Needs A Little Sunshine…

Back in Nashville last week and, as always, had to get my fill of some live music. Although country is the obvious genre of choice in Nash-Vegas, my friends and I discovered a real talent off Broadway at a little jazz club called “Jazz & Jokes.” I’ve seen my share of entertainers however I gotta tell ya…if there ever was a singer/performer built for the stage, it’s Avery Sunshine.

With all the energy of a hummingbird, a smile that’s infectious, a great sense of humor and a voice that is amazing, Sunshine hit the stage on Friday night and blew us away with a strong mix of great R&B, some very funny lyrics, a little bit of gospel and a great backing band. I had never heard of Avery Sunshine but I will be watching her career as it takes off. A voice like this can’t be held back and neither can her personality. I checked out a lot of her videos on YouTube and I gotta tell you…she’s something special on stage. Her recordings are good, but to get the FULL effect of this genuine artist, please check her schedule and make an effort to see her live. You won’t be disappointed!

And here is her latest video that has been featured on BET called “All In My Head…”

Raphael Saadiq Chases The Blues Away

I am SOOOOO tired of the crappy, cold, rainy weather we are having here in the midwest. OVER IT! So I had to go find a song that would break me out of the spring blah’s mode and I found it. Although his new album doesn’t drop until next week and this song isn’t available until then, I found it on YouTube and HAD to share! Turn up the speakers and get ready to shake your butt ’cause :08seconds in the bass kicks in, the beat takes over and it doesn’t stop throughout the entire 3:30+ of the song. Awesome track form this R&B revivalist! Can’t wait to hear the entire album!!!!
