SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE
If you were to close your eyes and then listen to these guys, you’d swear you’re listening to a rock power trio. And, you’d swear someone was playing guitar.
All the guitar and bass parts are being played on a bass… and there are only 2 guys making that rich sound!
This is the kind of thing you have to see at least once to believe. Then, after the amazement, check out a few more in the session they just did for Spotify and a few more new tunes on their first EP.
Psych Sunday Under Covers
I don’t think there have been too many tributes or cover CDs of The Doors music, so we haven’t heard many takes on their tunes, other than perhaps Light My Fire. Jazz and lounge singers like that one.
Anyhoo, check this out- I think you’ll find some good covers and perhaps some new favorite psych bands.
The Temperance Movement
SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE
Here’s a band that I just caught wind of, having watched some of the Rock Werchter festival from the Netherlands this weekend and checking out unfamiliar artists playing there.
They are causing a buzz over seas and are getting the respect of some heavy weights, like The Rolling Stones, who they have opened for.
I think you’re going to like their live set and their work in the studio via the YouTube full album playlist below.
Pop the live video to fullscreen and rock out to their festival performance recorded today.
YOU KNOW ALL those times when a friend, magazine or so-called-expert has implored you to buy a new band’s CD because it’s ‘Free-meets-the-Black Crowes-meets-the-Stones’ and you think, quite rightly, “That sounds splendid! What could possibly go wrong?” So, you buy it, take it home, play it and it sounds like tosh?
Yeah, well this is not one of those times. This is the story of The Temperance Movement: five guys, four of them in London, one in Scotland. In short, they rock. Big, sweaty, old-school, sincere rock. But, like all the best rock bands, they roll too. They have a swagger, a bravado. Soul.
This is a band that merges two highly valuable commodities: riff driven blues based rock and seriously impressive – nay, spellbinding - musicality. Sure, it’s been a long time coming but, thank god, they’ve finally arrived. (globalonslaught.com)
Found this on one of the sites I’ve added to the Now Streaming section of the Hear It Here site. This site is where you’ll find some fine independent artists where you can listen by genre or other ways.
This is a fine blues tune - and there are plenty others there to find and share too. So get to sharin’.
