Gordon Allen visits Listening Lyrics 2/5/16 at 4:00PM

Gordon is a multi-instrumentalist, producer and songwriter based out of Oakland, California. Starting with the Scottish fiddle at the age of 4, his passion for music has grown to encompass a wide variety of styles. On the violin, this has included jazz, folk, celtic, bluegrass, r&b and reggae. As a vocalist, he has done everything from shape-note singing to opera to beatboxing. Among other credits, he was introduced to choral music by the legendary Chanticleer, briefly competed in a barbershop quartet, and directed a pop acappella group at UC Davis. In college, his tastes as a dance facilitator and budding producer lead him to house music, electroswing, and glitch hop. Gordon's current projects aim to bring together these diverse influences – his sounds have been described as "gospel folk" and "post apocalyptic railroad blues." As a musician, producer and performer, Gordon hopes to unite people of all backgrounds and make them dance. You can follow him online at soundcloud.com/buskproject

LIVE IN THE LOAM presents I SEE HAWKS IN L.A. - Feb 5 at 2:30P

The Folk Brothers host SoCal band I See Hawks in L.A. for KDRT's Live in the Loam, Friday, February 5 at 2:30 pm PT. The band has an impressive catalogue of original songs that cover the musical terrain of country, rock, psychedelia, folk, and bluegrass. Lyrically, the songs display a wry sense of situational humor that typically isn’t found in this genre. The Austin Chronicle refers to their sound as "a divine fusion of humor and twang that’s definitely high, but not that lonesome."
 
I See Hawks in L.A. also appear that evening in Winters at the Palms Playhouse. Their latest release is Mystery DrugVisit the band on the web at iseehawks.com.

Album of the Week: Nick Cave "Push the Sky Away" - Feb 4 at 5P

AotW this week is Push the Sky Away (2013), Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds' first new recorded material in five years’ time. Cave spent those five years on projects unrelated to the Bad Seeds, including soundtracks, screenplays, and his musical side project Grinderman. Sky is a fairly quiet album for Nick and the Seeds, featuring misty tableaus and twisted love stories. The arrangements are subtle, wonderfully orchestrated, and well-suited to the material. In the end, it’s Nick Cave’s vocals that carry the day--equally tender and forceful, quite and dark...always a bit threatening. 

 

Album Review: The Blessing and the Curse, by Lance Canales

The Blessing and the Curse is Lance Canales' sophmore solo LP, his first studio album since These Hands, which was released all the way back in 2008. Canales brings all the bluesy, down-to-earth Americana sound one could ask for on the album, armed mostly with a simple yet well-utilized acoustic guitar and a deep, rusty voice that makes other Americana singers sound angelic by comparison. The themes on the album are very remeniscent of southwestern pioneer life, most notably on songs like the uptempo lead track "California or Bust," "The Farmer," and "Deportee," a song about a Mexican immigrants in America. Thematically, the album gets very dark at times--especially on "Death Got No Mercy," which is as depressing and downtrodden as it sounds--but ends on an energetic high note with the electrifying "Stomp it Out." Overall, this album is very good if not particularly ubpeat--a solid Americana album that uses strong lyrical imagery to get its ideas across about the troubles of life in the American West.

GRAVY NATION on Listening Lyrics Jan. 29, 2016 at 4:00PM

Everything goes better with gravy. We at KDRT and Listening Lyrics are thrilled to get these 3 very talented musicians in the studio. "Gravy Nation is creating a stir in the Northern California underground rock scene. Local artist Christopher Hunt is the mastermind behind this rock trio along with Ryan Shickman on guitar and Billy Thompson on drums. The music is a delicious mix of sound that combines 90s guitar-driven rock with 60s pop sensibility. Gravy Nation is a product of Davis, California, a town that runs through their art and their blood." Visit and listen to GRAVY NATION here https://gravynation.bandcamp.com/releases. Getting into the GRAVY? Check out their music video here produced by Davis Media Access Kids Camp graduates Alec Lesnick and his brother Ed!
