I have been revisiting Jack White’s discography over the course of the few days. I remember how much I was into The White Stripes and The Raconteurs with their distinct styles. I thought that Jack White could not do wrong and he still has lived up to that notion. “Broken Boy Soldier” is one of The Raconteurs best songs with its interesting sound and Jack White’s vocals.
Here’s a wonderful tune to restart the Soul Sunday series. James Hunter is a proven legend in the soul revival with his smooth voice and amazing backing band. “Tell Her For Me” is a slow and easy going song. Check it out.
I remember when I first heard Sum 41’s “Fat Lip” back in high school and how much it made me want to both rebel and start a pop punk band. I succeeded only partway with one of those. “Fat Lip” symbolized a fierce desire not to be like anyone else and not to live a “simple” life. I held on this belief since then and I haven’t settled for any convenience.
The Boxer Rebellion are finally back with a new single “Keep Me Close” from their upcoming album ‘Ocean By Ocean’. The song has a different sound from their previous works with strings in the background and a prominent bassline. Vocalist Nathan Nicholson’s voice soars over the growing crescendo of the guitars. Check it out above.
The Starting Line released their new EP “Anyways” a few days ago after an eight year hiatus. The band returns to their pop punk roots with “Quitter” which a fast paced and catchy track that shows that The Starting Line aren’t going anywhere. Check it out above.
I have been listening to a lot of my favorite music genre recently and decided to start a recurring theme on this blog. Every Thursday I will (or try) to post a pop punk song by bands that I am a fan of. Starting off this first edition is Yellowcard’s “For You, and Your Denial” off of their seventh album “When You’re Through Thinking, Say Yes”. Check it out above.
Young Thug’s Slime Season 3 is supposedly coming out tomorrow and is going to break and shake the internet. Until then Young Thug released a video for a new track called “Worth It” which features his girlfriend Jerrika Karlae. It is a romantic song that has Thugga spitting his slime. Check it out above.
As you know I am a fan of singer Jeremih who specializes in the midnight hour R&B. He manages to produce a vibe or tone that makes his music instantly recognizable. “No More” is an EP collaboration between Jeremih and producer Shlohmo that mixes electronica with hip hop inspired beats. The self-titled song “No More” has a sporadic beat that stutters constantly as Jeremih lets his vocals flow over the track. Check it out above.
King Krule is a young musician with an old man’s soul. His music is reflective with elements of nostalgia. The lyrics are melancholic and pleading as Krule sing’s in his gravelly voice.
“The Krockadile” features a prominent guitar that adds a jazz tinged feel to the song. Krule’s voice goes from low to high as he even shouts out his pain. Check it out above.
