116 Days of Summer Guests: In the Whale

      There are so many cool bands out there. I have a list on Twitter of several hundred bands. I’m pretty sure that In the Whale is on my Twitter list. They’re a couple of dudes from Denver who absolutely rock. Their new single “Highways” is out on June 29, which is today,Continue reading “116 Days of Summer Guests: In the Whale”

Sleep Deprived Music Review: Wild Moccasins

      Synth pop is different now than it was in the 80s and 90s. There were synth pop/indie pop bands that I liked back then – mostly Duran Duran. Some got on my nerves. No offense Pet Shop Boys but you get on my nerves. There was a lack of female voices in theContinue reading “Sleep Deprived Music Review: Wild Moccasins”

Interview with DeAndre Brackensick

So you guys don’t know this but I don’t have cable or watch much besides YouTube videos and Netflix. The point of mentioning that is that I haven’t watched American Idol since the second or third season. So I didn’t know who DeAndre Brackensick was until he kept showing up in my YouTube recommendations. Currently,Continue reading “Interview with DeAndre Brackensick”

Sleep Deprived Music Review: Stringer

Stringer will be releasing their new album, “My Bad,” on June 29. The title of the album could be the title of my biography. I feel like this band gets into shenanigans on and off stage. However, I feel like they take their music fairly seriously. Or they are just pretty talented and can getContinue reading “Sleep Deprived Music Review: Stringer”

116 Days of Summer Guests: Sydney Ranee’

  Hey!!! This is Sydney Ranee’ and I am a singer/songwriter and producer from Los Angeles. First off I want to thank Holley for having me. This is my first time doing something like this and I’m super excited. I’ve got a pretty epic topic so I’m just going to dive right in it. I’veContinue reading “116 Days of Summer Guests: Sydney Ranee’”

Sleep Deprived Music Spotlight: Calembour

      I love a good Calembour . . . I mean – a good pun. Calembour is French for the word pun. It’s fancy and funny. If I knew French or Italian, there would be so many calembours. Calembours with a side of croissants and a cappuccino. Calembour is also a folk-rock bandContinue reading “Sleep Deprived Music Spotlight: Calembour”

Sleep Deprived Music Review: Gang of Youths

  When I was a kid, I would play my mom’s vinyl records and dance around in the basement. One of the records she had was Bruce Springsteen’s Born in the U.S.A. I think she liked the cover photo of his butt. My mom was the cool mom. There’s something about Gang of Youths thatContinue reading “Sleep Deprived Music Review: Gang of Youths”

Interview with . . . Paper Foxes

Paper Foxes are self-proclaimed “death disco darlings” from Phoenix, Arizona. While they weren’t on the tennis court, the band was busy working on their first full-length album, which will be out this fall. Maybe when they aren’t so busy, they would play a few sets of tennis with my family. It would be highly entertaining.Continue reading “Interview with . . . Paper Foxes”

116 Days of Summer Guests: NeoRomantics

  For this series of summer guest posts,  I would usually give the band or solo artist a list of topics or one very broad topic. The NeoRomantics of Tulsa, Oklahoma chose to tell me about their bucket list. It’s like a combination of my favorite things – music and bucket lists.  This reminds meContinue reading “116 Days of Summer Guests: NeoRomantics”

Sleep Deprived Music Review: L.A. Witch

Once in awhile my kid asks me if I’m a good witch.  I wonder if L.A. Witch ever gets that question from their fans. I don’t think they would be necessarily good or bad. From what I’ve read, they aren’t witches at all. They are pretty badass though. They released a self-titled album in 2017.Continue reading “Sleep Deprived Music Review: L.A. Witch”
