Album of the Week - 7/30/15 at 5:00PM - Alabama Shakes "Sound & Color"

 

"Sound & Color is not an electronic record. But it is strange and mystical and unexpected—more Houses of the Holy than "Holy Cow". It’s got past lives and future people, traces of Curtis Mayfield, Erykah Badu, MC5, the Strokes. There’s a song called "Shoegaze" that could find a second home on the Rolling Stones’ Tattoo You. Bon Iver collaborator Rob Moose provides eerie string arrangements that slowly encroach on songs like ivy climbing up a fence while the band and co-producer Blake Mills tweak tones and rhythms to make guitars and drums and bass and keyboards sound genuinely exciting—fresh, even—in 2015. This is stadium soul with one eye peeking toward another galaxy while hands and feet and throats desperately try to suss out life here on Earth." review by PITCHFORK - see complete review here http://pitchfork.com/reviews/albums/20420-sound-color/.

dj tree kilpatrick

Your host, Tree, loves music.  And his theory of music involves a tree of sorts. Suffice to say it involves a trinity, exploration of themes and connections amongst recording artists, and otherwise very few boundaries.  Listen in as Tree plays music old and new, known and unknown.  Eventually if you listen long enough you might experience some musical enlightments. In the meantime, let him show you the way to the music from the tree of life.
