If you need to catch up on what it is we’re doing here check out the post from Day 1 and meet our panel of rad here. Or click on their names below to see their band page or stalk them on social media. They like that.
Feel free to answer each prompt for yourself in the comments below. We love to hear about as many genres and bands as we can all around town. The only rule is you must use San Diego musicians/bands. To make it extra challenging try not to repeat a band as the days go by. If you want a look at the full list drop me a line. And you can view previous days and compare your answers here.
P.S. Lots of our picks are up for the 2013 San Diego Music Awards so don’t forget to vote for your favorites!
Here we go:
Day 6 – A Song That You Know All The Words To
Jen VT: “Slow Motion” by Social Club* – I have absolutely loved this song from the very first time I heard it on The Nardcast. The upbeat tune is so catchy I really have no choice but to sing along. Vocalists John Levan and Thea Tochihara both have such pronounced gorgeous vocals on the song I’m pretty sure I’m singing along correctly for once. 😉 The video for this one is super cool as well- it’s no wonder it earned them an SDMA nod for “Best Music Video.”
Natalie Watson Webber: “The Chain” by Dirty Sirens* – Granted it is a cover and when most of the music fans in San Diego think of the Dirty Sirens they think of the Super HOT Female-fronted and rhythmically backed by two of the most talented (and equally hot) guys on the scene the song that immediately comes to mind is “Hellfire”, which is mind blowingly fantastic (I know the words to that one too, guys). But the reason I picked “The Chain” is because it is the most perfect cover I have ever heard! You took a Fleetwood Mac song about the break-up between Lindsey Buckingham and Stevie Nicks and made it ROCK!!! The Dirty Siren’s cover of “The Chain” shows not only their deep respect for rock and roll but their amazing diversity and creativity in arrangement as well.
Paul Moffat: “This Heavy Heart” by The Midnight Pine*. From the first time I heard Shelbi Bennett at the Jett Gallery for their CD release…this song leveled me. I was standing on a ladder leaning against a wall that was probably some modern art, just to see over the crowd to the source. Al Howard penned a gem, but the words would be nothing without the proper delivery.
