Woman – Down Dirty Shake

If 2020 were a woman, this blues-rock track — also called “Woman,” from San Francisco-based band Down Dirty Shake — would undoubtedly make for a more than appropriate theme song.

Sleeping Through The Flood – Sticky Fingers

Don’t be too shocked when I introduce yet another aussie band. You may gasp. I know it’s getting a bit out of hand. At this point my musical garden is beyond fecund with sun kissed flora in the form of Australian born tunes…

Special Moment – Post Animal

What a time to be alive music lovers of the world! I had a profound moment of happiness in mindblowing proportions watching this group of snazzy fellows jam together recently in San Francisco. The band is composed of Dalton Allison, Jake Hirshland, Javi Reyes, Wesley Toledo, Matt Williams and Joe Keery (an inactive contributing member for the foreseeable future)…

Selfish Lover – Mild Orange

Hi, hello and welcome snazzy music lovers. I present to you this week a window into the inner workings of Mild Orange. I am fairly certain they’re cool with it if we just take a quick peek inside. These mellow kiwi fellows have a beautiful ability to share simple words and sounds with a truly relatable and meaningful message to go along with it…

Sundown Syndrome is a seriously underrated song of a now wildly popular band. My 16 year old self was introduced to the genius work of Kevin Parker by a childhood friend from New Zealand. To him I am forever grateful.

Wannabe in L.A – Eagles Of Death Metal

I just dig this track big time. I know old school fans of EODM didn’t rate the album highly compared to their previous albums but it just kicks arse for me.

Lord, I’m Discouraged – The Hold Steady

Sad music doesn’t have to bring you down – sometimes a sad song punches you in the gut and leaves you staggering but strangely energized.  When you have a lyricist like Craig Finn and a guitar player like Tad Kubler, you get pummeled on many different levels.

I Give You Power – Arcade Fire

For their first new material since 2013’s Reflektor, indie art collective Arcade Fire recruit legendary gospel singer Mavis Staples to present a clear and simple warning to our leaders: I give you power and I can take it away. This is not a threat, Mr Trump. it’s a promise.

Hans is Driving – Vitalic (feat. Miss Kittin)

If I could have one wish, it would be that this song would start playing as soon as I enter a lucid dream (that beautiful space between waking life and deep slumber when my body is completely relaxed and weightless but I still complete control over my thoughts and movements.)

Sugar Town – Nancy Sinatra

My optimism and imagination has led to accusations of living with my head in the clouds. I have learned to embrace this as part of my creativity and this song as the anthem.

It Is What it Is – Blood Orange

Blood Orange has been one of my recent favorite artists.  His ability to seamlessly blend different styles of music makes for a delightful sound.

The Altruist – Saddles

Since moving to Phoenix, Arizona, I have been fortunate to meet lots of creative and inspiring people.  Saddles is an example of the local talent that motivates me to create. This song is from their newly released album, “ Yoke.”

Gay Human Bones – Harlem

I was excited when I moved to Tucson, Arizona after attending high school in a Virginia suburb. The desert landscape, colorful homes and alternative music felt so vibrant.  Harlem is a garage band that originated in Tucson during this time of my life.  

Painter In Your Pocket – Destroyer

To me, “Painter In Your Pocket” represents the new confidence, views and creations that evolve with experience.  I find this song interesting because it shows this growth through the eyes of the past.
