Here is the best single songs I’m digging via my heart and head!
John Mayer-Speak For Me-Flawless songcraft via a gorgeous acoustic folk vibe
A melody that sparkles in a 70′s Gordon Lightfoot vein. Wow! From John’s Born And Raised album due out May 22/2012.
Counting Crows-Untilted (Love Song) Think superb alt country in a Jayhawks way and you will have an idea for this beauty. Gorgeously sung by Adam Duritz. Killer guitar work by what sounds like Dan Vickrey. From the new cd Underwater Sunshine.
Alan Doyle-I’ve Seen A Little-Doyle explodes out of the box with this muscular rocker. If your not singing the chorus by the second time through, your tone deaf. Doyle’s album Boy On Bridge may be the surprise hit of the summer.
Garbage-Your Kind of People (title track) The best vocal mix I have heard this year. Honestly Shirley Manson is singing her ass off. Hypnotic and mesmerizing. Killer.
The Beach Boys-That’s Why God Made The Radio. Wow, I’m carrying this song into my summer of 2012.
Tantalizing vocal harmonies still intact, gorgeous bridge and verse chords carry this track deep into your head.
