3 Songs: On Repeat

Black Joe Lewis – “Skulldiggin” (The howling blues and funk revivalist returned this week with his new album, Electric Slave, out now on new label, Vagrant.  After a lineup shakeup and the dropping of the “Honeybears” from the band name, Lewis chose to focus more on the guitar while still creating a soulful, blues-soaked garage-rock that sounds like James Brown fronting the Rolling Stones, for their most cohesive and confident album yet.)

This Frontier Needs Heroes – “George Clooney” (Sibling duo of Brad and Jessica Lauretti recorded their appropriately-titled and more experimental third album, Hooky, in Dr. Dog’s Philly studio to 2” analog tape along with a full band including sitar, organ and violin to help flesh out their sun-drenched alternative folk tunes.)  

Lowland Hum – “War Is Over” (North Carolina husband and wife duo Daniel Levi Goans and Lauren Plank Goans recently released their debut album, Native Air.  Their beautiful, braided harmonies perfectly complement their soaring art-folk.  Lauren, an artist, also creates their videos and the multimedia projections used for their live shows.)
