Evan Daly visits Listening Lyrics 2/12/16 at 4PM EST

Davisite Evan Daly is well known in Northern California. His own band, the Evan Daly Blues Band, creates a soul-searching experience of blues-rock and a mighty fine guitar. Evan's involvement in multiple bands, including Tha Dirt Feelin, is made possible by his absolute control of the guitar--he can play to fit most any genre. Evan's stage persona is electrifying, and he's been known to drive the dance floor into a frenzy. Let's hear what drives this young man.

Album of the Week (02/11) Tame Impala ~ Currents

Stealing a line from this Pitchfork review, "Nearly every proper song on Currents is a revelatory statement of Parker’s range and increasing expertise as a producer, arranger, songwriter, and vocalist while maintaining the essence of Tame Impala: Parker is just as irreverent working in soul and R&B as he is with psych-rock."

I'm not one to rely heavily on P4K, but when they rate an lp 9.3 out of 10, I may give it a try. Currents ended up in their Top 5 for 2015, (Top 3 Reader's Poll) and in my list of fifteen favorite discoveries for the year.

Let It Happen and The Moment drew me in to this solo project and the rest grew on me shortly afterward. I recently picked up the double-lp from Armadillo Music and am pleased to share it during my turn of AoTW. Mr. Parker will be touring (with a full band) at the Greek in Berkeley early September. One of the two nights still has tickets remaining as of this post.
