Sunny Side Up: Sylvan Esso

Sylvan Esso

PASTE Magazine just named “Hey Mami” as their song of the year. And Sylvan Esso’s other single “Coffee” may well top the listener generated countdown of WTMD’s Top 89 Songs of 2014. The odd, yet seductive rhythms from producer Nick Sandborn, the cooing vocals of Amelia Meath and a summoning of a Tommy James and…

Sunny Side Up: Bahamas

Bahamas 1

Bahamas is Afie, the latest album from Canadian virtuoso guitarist and witty, yet laid-back singer/songwriter Afie Jurvanen, features on the cover, a wedding ring the word, “Afie” inscribed.

Claustrophobia and Super Storm Sandy presented a writing and recording challenge for Matt Vasquez and his mates in Delta Spirit. Their rat-infested, basement rehearsal room in Brooklyn flooded, damaging equipment and creating a gloom the sunny San Diego natives were eager to escape.

The Shadow- Dec. 19th

Shadow19

I think about the original artist a lot this time of year. He passed away on Christmas Day in 2006, but not before he helped define R & B, & F, & S. This song was a hit for him and his band in 1960 and is about losing your mind when losing a love….
