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.
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!
DAY ONE: THE BUZZ ABOUT “SOUTH BY” For one week each year Austin, Texas becomes the global capital of the music industry. In its 25 year existence, the annual South by Southwest Music Festival (“SxSW” or simply “South by” to the initiated) has emerged as the industry’s most important “trade show”. Over the course of [...]
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 [...]
Low budget. Lo-Fi. Trippy. Neo-Retro. Artistic. We love it. For those of you who grew up by the ocean (Remember those beach parties? We don’t either) you’ll be cast back to your college days of Budweiser tallboys (in a can of course!), bongs and trippy music. But of course TDM is so much more than [...]
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 [...]
Be it Viper Jazz, Ragtime, or Country Blues, Asheville’s own Woody Pines (led by frontman Jonathan Woods) plays old-time, foot-stompin’ good music. The band — Woods on guitar, banjo, harmonica and lead vocals, Zack Pozebanchuk on upright bass, Nathan Taylor on drums, and Darin Gentry on fiddle — epitomizes the swinging ragtime and country sound [...]
Here’s a Thanksgiving Thank You Gift from one of ATF’s favorite bands, Sidewalk Dave out of Connecticut. It’s their official debut video for “750ml of Spirit” off their 2010 album Gold Liquid Mischief that was entirely “written, recorded, re-written, re-recorded under the influence of the almighty jug and the bitter taste of whisky.” This may [...]
