We’re listening to Marian Mereba’s “Kotton House, Vol. 1 EP” and her track “Living on a Dream” featuring Doug E. Fresh. …ooh ladi dadi (sorry, we had to.)
"It was surreal being there," bassist Johnny Adger says of touring Europe in 2010 with Them Crooked Vultures. "On the first night, [Dave Grohl, John Paul Jones, and Josh Homme] introduced themselves to us. I was like 'yeah, I know who you are,'" he laughs.
It has been my observation that LA is saturated with girl singer-songwriters singing about the pains and joys of love. They’ve got stickers on their guitars, they know 3 chords and they sing about how a guy doesn’t know what he’s missing. Some are lucky enough to place their music in toothpaste and cotton ads. Oh and there’s a lot of ukelele…I go nuts in trying to showcase local artists and only come up with some 2 dimensional unicorn forgettables.
I’m in the sappy, sugar cookied, cozy hot chocolate mood. I’m not trying to give you diabetes but I’ve been stuck on 94.7 The Wave’s Holiday music. I just want to be happy and give, give, give. It’s the holidays and everyone seems to have a little more warmth in their hearts this time of year. It is only appropriate that I highlight a band that not only warms the tiny cockles of my soul but they bring forth the message of love, peace and community. They come to move you with their sweet harmonies, driving beats and heartfelt lyrics. They are the Makepeace Brothers.
