Jake Bugg is today’s featured artist and the song is “Two Fingers”.  Jake hails from Nottingham, UK.  The astounding fact, 18, yes 18.  Catch this tune and tell me that this not a great song.  Looking forward to more.

Was perusing some tags on my phone and came across his one by Clutch.  This tune, “The Regulator” was used to close Season 2, Episode 8 of The Walking Dead.  If you haven’t caught this series, I highly recommend it.  I also highly recommend Clutch.  About the only negative I can come up with is that their song “Electric Worry” was used as a celebration goal song by the Vancouver Canucks, and I have an intense dislike for that hockey team.

Hey y’all.  How you been.  I have enjoyed major summer and have barely had time to read and comment let alone post.  Figured that this tune was a good segue to getting back on the keyboard.  The Alabama Shakes are a band out of Athens, Alabama (not Georgia, nor Greece) with an outstanding album released in April of 2012.  Instant classic????  I vote yes.  Remind me of Black Keys with a dose of Sheepdogs.

Hope to post a few things in the coming few weeks, then get back on the beam full-time again in September.

Isn’t it “Ironic” that Alanis Morrissette hasn’t had any major successes since Jagged Little Pill in 1995 (yes 1995).  “You Oughta Know” that she is Canadian and that she is releasing a new album titled  Havoc And Bright Lights.  Once again, Alanis will try to put “Her Hand In My Pocket” to buy her record.  Hopefully you will be “Head Over Feet” about the record as “You Learn” that “All I Really Want” is for you to listen to her first single off the disk.  I am sure she will personally “Thank You“.

Song Of The Day – John Mayer – “Shadow Days”

It has been a looooonnnggg time since I first heard John Mayer.  The first time I heard him, I was hooked.  Room For Squares was and is a great record, and his follow-up albums have been  consistently good.  Heavier Things is one of my all time favorites and his work with the John Mayer Trio is, well, awesome.  He is a very under-rated guitar player as well.  His latest release is Shadow Days.
