Watch Shakey Graves’ New Video “Dearly Departed” Shakey Graves has had a good year. His album, And The War Came, was named one of iTune’s best singer/songwriter albums of the year and one of the top albums of 2014 by NPR music critic Ann Powers. It also put Graves on Amazon’s list of “Artists to […]
Dawn Landes’ lastest album, Bluebird, is the most gorgeous album I’ve heard in a long time. Every song is a subtle, smart, heartfelt gem. The video for the title song features the dancer Storyboard P and was directed by Christina Ladwig, produced by Ghost Robot. Warning: the minor chord changes at the bridge will tug […]
Heres a download of a choice lick called “Outlaw“ Born out of Dallas, Texas’ rich music scene, The O’s deliver a melodic, catchy pop sound, achieved with folk-minded acoustic instrumentation, drawing influences from the modern and traditional Americana scenes. Comprised of Taylor Young (acoustic guitar, kick drum) and John Pedigo (banjo), the duo had spent […]
Boston based singer/songwriter Amy Black possesses all the necessary traits of a soulful Southern artist: Her parents are from the Muscle Shoals area of Alabama, her dad is a preacher, her granddad loved to tell stories, and the family moved around a lot within Missouri and Alabama before finally heading to Boston.
“Nothin’ but the best and later for the rest.” So said John Lee Hooker on Saturday, July 6, 1974. The legendary Mississippi-Delta bluesman was one of the star attractions at an all-day festival attended by 6,000 people. The event in the town of Gardner, Massachusetts, was called “Down in the Dumps” perhaps the first in […]
New single, “Parted Ways,” from Heartless Bastards’ stirring and powerful new album “Arrow.”
North Carolina native (and current L.A. resident) Mark Lennon is the unassuming, easygoing guy next door. That’s what I enjoyed about his debut EP, Down the Mountain (2009, Vagabonds Tune) — it was like sitting on a wide and comfortable front porch, drinking ice cold beer and listening to a friend play some solid, honest […]
We’re introducing a new feature here at The Flood called Beyond the Music. (Yes, in the spirit of VH1’s sensationalistic “Behind the Music” series, but without the ubiquitous tragedies.) Each installment of ATF – Beyond the Music will feature a video with commentary by the artist about the song, the video shoot, the album, juicy […]
“Flower” is the latest single from Amos Lee‘s critically acclaimed new album, Mission Bell, which we reviewed HERE back in February. We also covered his recent show in Atlanta, which you can read about HERE. The song is a beauty, and the video’s paper animation is worth seeing. Enjoy!
This simply represents everything we loved about those unimaginable zero summers at the beach acting like obnoxious fools while under the influence and playing our Young Fresh Fellows, Cramps, Suicidal Tendencies, Jam and Dead Milkmen songs too loud. Wavves are just off a tour with Best Coast and tomorrow head to Japan and Australia. Today […]
We know, we know, TWO “Video of the Week” features in the same week? And from the same band? Yes, it’s a first for us and we never thought we’d do this, but Little Tybee is casting quite a spell on us with their progressive folk/classical/latin grooviness. We think you’ll be mesmerized too, once you […]
Slated for appearances at this year’s SXSW in Austin, TX, these Georgia darlings and local Atlanta favorites known as Little Tybee seem to be hitting their stride. At the core of each of their songs is the creative mind of vocalist/guitarist/pianist Brock Scott alongside eight-string guitarist Josh Martin, violinist Nirvana Kelly, bassist Ryan Donald, and […]
Our ears perked up when we heard Charlene Kaye singing “Mad Tom of Bedlam,” from her 2010 EP Charlene Kaye & The Brilliant Eyes. And then we saw the video. Yowza! Check out this jazzy, swingin’, rockin’ group for yourself, fronted by the effervescent, golden-throated multi-instrumentalist Kaye. So, Who Is CHARLENE KAYE? Here’s an excerpt […]
Florida band Bastard Lovechild of Rock ‘n’ Roll (BLORR) made our Best of 2010 list with their debut EP, Bim Bom. Honestly, it’d been a long time since we’d heard anything that rocked this hard and had so much soul and literary depth — and some damn fine bossa nova breaks, too! So, imagine our […]
