Preview: Twin Peaks @ HiFi Deli Club, Los Angeles on Sat. 05/30

twinpeaks

Hailing from Chicago, IL, Grand Jury band Twin Peaks swing by LA on 5/30 to play the HiFi Deli Club. The garage rock/punk rockers are currently on the “Isolated Incident” tour with Modern Vices and judging by the reaction on social media, it’s going to be a loud and sweaty time. Which for me, is exactly what I’m looking for. While guitars have for the most have been pretty silent in Top 40 recently, the scene has slowly been bubbling under with bands like Twin Peaks leading the charge. On the back of recent release on Grand Jury Records (Wild Onion, now available), the 5 piece have been making a name for themselves, city by city. Preview by Tony Perkis.

Alabama Shakes – Future People

alabamashakes

Athens band Alabama Shakes turn up the heat on their new track “Future People” which is off their recently released “Sound & Color” EP that (according to the group) has a “genre-bending” sound. The EP is the band’s first to release since their Gold-certified debut album, Boys & Girls; which features the single “Hold On” that earned the group a top rank on Rolling Stone Magazine’s Best Songs of 2012 and #34 on our B3SCI Top 50 songs of 2012. New track “Future People” is worth the wait as it is stunningly wrought with a fresh new psychedelic vibe that works to enhance the group’s well-developed soulful blues-rock bravado that has garnered them three GRAMMY® nominations. We are impressed with the band’s centered new direction on the EP and of course we love the superbly rich and soulful, gorgeous blusey classics-inspired vocals from lead singer and guitarist Britney Howard. Indeed, the ultra bright dynamic in the groups new sound is between the high-art hazy psych-rock vocals and a seasoned, furiously focused guitar-riff-driven instrumental side. Hit play below and be sure to check the Alabama Shakes website for the April-released “Sound & Color”, EP which was co-produced with “young guitar wiz” Blake Mills. Reviewed by Erin Shay.
