Sebzzz – Self Esteem (Offspring Cover)

This was thrown at me through a twitter user and I couldn’t not post a review. I’m a huge fan of covers in general and I have been listening to The Offspring since their first single dropped. read more

Samantha Preis – Our World

Though this song is hastaged at pop, I found it to be a bit more jazz/soulful piano. I don’t mean that as a negative statement either. I love how her voice is softly framed with the simple background music of piano and a very soft drum beat that is barely there. It’s got me in a wistful kind of mood. Her voice is the real gem here, it’s strong, sweet and carries a lot of soul. My first thought was it reminded me of the music from one of those Charlie Brown Christmas cartoons back in the 80’s due to the piano in the intro of the song.

I enjoyed all the elements of this song. The lyrics were solid and the music a perfect accompaniment to her vocal abilities. I have a fairly limited knowledge of this genre of music. However I do enjoy Billy Joel from time to time. I could easily fit this song on a list with some of his slower, down tempo works.  It really strikes me as one of those songs you listen to on a rainy day as you sit by the window and contemplate life.

Cranberry Flick – That Man

Well, what do you know? As it turns out I like jazz! This song is so much fun to listen to. I love that rhythm it’s very retro. I could be wrong but I’m pretty sure there is some scat work going on to. I enjoy that vocalists sweet tones. This song is so damn refreshing, it’s certainly not something you hear every day. The horn work is really well done and overall the song makes me think of every period piece I’ve ever seen, but Dick Tracey is what really comes to mind.

I plan to get this song. I have a rather small playlist with bands like Rev. Horton Heat and Brian Setzer that this would work so well with. If you’re into Jazz or just old timey sounding tunes you need to do yourself a favor and check them out. I’m already listening to more of their work and I can’t say I’ve been disappointed.
