Seth Cooper on Listening Lyrics Jun 17th, 2016

Local talent continues to impress and this week's guest was no exception. Born and raised in Woodland, CA, Seth Cooper, the lead singer and instrumentalist for indie band Alamo Merchant, swoons in high falsetto and rumbling baritone to script tragedies ripped right from the silver screen.  Whether it be the idolization of the disco era or a cold, meditative drive through the blizzards of West Texas, Cooper's stories convey a sense of farm boy wit and wonder with the world at large. Listen in as Seth performs some of his original music.

Mesmerizing show Pieter. Gave me that moment of pause and allowed me to begin wrapping my arms around music and lyrics which will let calm settle in. An excellent compilation of wonderful words and sounds. Thanks.  

Love the new dimension and the seamless, feed-each-other, dimension it gives the program's back and forth banter. Great music selection and accompanying background info this week!

So good, so listenable, so smooth,and exactly my favorite style in music. Thanks Pieter and Alex.

 

What can I say; I LOVED THIS SHOW!

Additionally, I'll let you in on a secret, this was the first time that I listened to, not one, but two complete Rap songs -- and enjoyed them. :)

 

Loved the show and thoroughly enjoyed Cory. Tell him what Michael J Fox once said; "I am careful not to confuse excellence with perfection. Excellence, I can reach for; perfection is God's business."  He was excellent.

the October 3rd show was way too short. What a mellow and superbly classy hour that just blew by. Thanks!
