St. Paul and the Broken Bones

1 Jan

St. Paul and the Broken Bones is a r & b band from Birmingham Alabama. And this band doesn’t hold back. Their music will take you back to the late 60’s when soul music was hot, and packed full of energy. You know when a song really expressed how it felt to be in love, and then how you felt when loved ended. And their music is pretty soulful. It’s packed full of horns, guitar, and great lyrics.

The song Broken Bones and Pocket Change has a slow bluesy feel to it. It’s the song that you listen to over and over when a relationship ends. Somehow the lyrics all she left me with is broken bones and pocket change really do remind you of exactly how you feel about your relationship the first few days after a relationship ends.

My absolute favorite track on their new release is Champagne Halloween. Why? I think it’s the mainly the songhas the a little bit of a psychedelic sound to it. It kind of reminds me of the songs by Cambodian Space Project that I love so much. Or it could be the title of the song Champagne Halloween I mean you just have to listen to a sing with a title like that don’t you?

So if you like a soul music, and you’re looking for a new band give St. Paul and the Broken Bones a try they won’t disappoint you.

How I Became a Cambodian Space Project Fan

Whatcha Been Listening To?

13 Oct

Here’s some of the music I’ve found interesting recently. I absolutely love Cambodian Space Project. I mean the name alone makes you think what is going on? I’m not really sure what they are saying as they are singing, but the music is just so much fun. And well come on how can you go wrong with a name like that? When I looked around to find more information about the band, I found that one of the band’s purposes is to preserve the 60’s pop music of Cambodia. But the band also writes music of its own. The fast beats of the songs just make you want to get up and dance. If you are looking for fun music that is a little different than what is heard on the radio. Check these guys out they are fabulous. I just hope they make a tour to the US. I’d be surprised if they came to my town, it’s just not big enough for the band to visit, but I’d travel to see them. They are that good.
