lacking of the time to share music leaves a void. since the last post i have changed jobs and added a second radio show. oh and the radio gigs aren't my job, they are hobbies so time is a commodity for me these days but i still manage to squeeze in music and the discovery thereof. i like to dig for my tunes and in doing so i find some great ones... and... some not so great....
time. i still find enough to hear... tunes... sounds.
the sound in my ear now is My Morning Jacket. in the event that you haven't heard of these guys, and i would be surprised if you haven't. anyhow, they are a louisville-based outfit that i would call "dream-pop-rock'. lots of folks have come to love this band so you may as well. just be careful, oversaturation looms for these cats as so many have them spinning on their sound medium and they just keep churning out a lot of material.
that sound comes to me from Bret Foster's "The Colonel's Weekly Playlist" from Spotify. Bret offers up new sounds every week and you probably will find something you like!
and now i share... beginning in the soul/pop/funk realm and ending up with folk.
|time... sound... divvy can be heard on Spotify|
The albums on the playlist are below.
Eli "Paperboy" Reed - Walkin' and Talkin'
a Boston boy who saturated himself in a Delta vibe in Clarksdale, MS and then headed off to Chicago to further his education in both sociology and the blues. this is hi first recorded project and it led to much attention when he returned to Boston to focus on his musical career.
Jessee Dee - On My Mind/In My Heart
another Boston native who cut his musical teeth with a 10-piece soul outfit called Decifunk and with the rock group The Dirty Whites. he finally learned to play guitar and eventually fronted his own act. this cat tours often and has opened for Al Green, Etta James, Solomon Burke and Amy Lavette.

Atlanta native Lee Moses is revered by deep soul enthusiasts who only recorded only one studio project... this one. Moses spent quite a bit of time in New York offering his talents as a studio musician.
