3 Songs: On Repeat

Futurebirds – “Hotel Parties” (The Athens, GA based band creates a hazy, twang-y Southern folk-rock sound on their sophomore album, Hotel Parties, out now via their new label, Easy Sound Recording Company.  Lyrically, the band battles with being on the road while longing for home and the standout title track here is the perfect example with its piano-led melody and wispy steel guitar ornamentation.)

Craig Finn – “Maggie I’ve Been Searching For Our Son” (The Hold Steady frontman recently released - via Partisan Records - Faith In The Future, his second solo album.  As always Finn is the ultimate storyteller and does not disappoint as he weaves his melancholic yet vivid tales around his guitar-driven Springsteen-like indie rock but this time around he has added in some keys and synths for good measure.  Be sure to catch him on tour the fall.)   

The Dead Weather – “I Feel Love (Every Million Miles)” (Jack White, Alison Mosshart, Dean Fertita and Jack Lawrence are back with Dodge And Burn, their third album and first in five years, out today via Third Man Records.  The collaborative group’s groove-leaden garage-rock is built with White’s stomping drumbeats, Mosshart and White’s feral vocals and Fertita and Lawrence’s heavy, fuzzed out blues-soaked riffs for a muscular sound that will bruise you black and blue.)
