Some songs just get me on the first listen. My song obsession this week reeled me in like a big fat musically-obsessed fish right away. The voice first reminded me of Jack White and kept getting better from there, turns out it’s a fucking chick. Mind = blown. Jack White with tits, like I’m the only one with that fantasy. Come on.
“Hold On” by Alabama Shakes: This has all the makings of a perfect rock song. The guitar hook is just damn killer. The vocals grip you with a tenderness and then rise into wailing power. I have been rocking out to this for more than a week. It makes cleaning the house nearly tolerable. Sexy and soulful, what more could you want in one song?
“I got so much to do, I ain’t got much time.
So, must be someone up above saying “Come on girl! You got to get back up!”
Summation of Sounds:
Loved and Lost Again: A list of songs featuring the word “lost,” #11 just slays me.
Losing My Mind to Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg at Coachella: My first guest writer, Ava Apollo of Be My Travel Muse gives a great review on an epic Coachella set.
Spoiler alert – a couple awesome interviews coming up, a preview for May, and if tonight’s show is as fantastical as I think it will be I’ll have to relive it in type very soon.
