Funk & Soul Wednesdays – The Coasters

This Funk & Soul Wednesday is dedicated to Tulum, Mexico, because I just came back from an amazing vacation there.  “Down in Mexico” was released by The Coasters in 1956 and was their very first single.  The Coasters had a way with humorous storytelling and this track is no exception.  You may also recognize the re-record from the ridiculously sexy lapdance scene in Quentin Tarantino’s “Death Proof”.  Follow  Read More

Fleet Foxes – “Helplessness Blues”

Fleet Foxes has a way of crafting some of the most inspired folk music I’ve ever heard.

Metronomy – “The Look”

The second single from UK-based Metronomy is out. It’s fantastic. Their new album, “The English Riviera” is out on April 11. Early buzz is that it is their most cohesive and unique effort to date – but Metronomy has always been known for being unique, so it’s good to see them sticking to their principles and not giving in to trends.
