Max Reebo’s Pick of the Week: “Don’t Say You Love Me”

March 30, 2020 at 12:10 am | Posted in Max Reebo Pick of the Week, Music, Regular Feature | Leave a comment

Max Reebo’s pick this week is “Don’t Say You Love Me” by Samantha Fish.

Samantha Fish is another musician I’ve recently discovered and I’m really loving a lot of her music. She’s got some great tracks. Whether you like something bluesy or a bit more modern, she has a nice variety.

Born in Kansas City, MO, Samantha has been playing music since she was a kid. From the drums to the guitar, and joining on stage with other musicians at the age of eighteen, she’s carved a path for herself and earned some serious respect. She put out her first album in 2009, won the 2012 Blues Music Award for Best New Artist with her album Runaway, and her albums Wild Heart (2015) and Belle of the West (2017) were ranked number 1 blues albums of the year. With ten albums under her belt, she shows no signs of stopping.

“Don’t Say You Love Me” is from her 2017 album Belle of the West.

Max Reebo’s Pick of the Week: “Sun Rising”

March 23, 2020 at 2:10 pm | Posted in Max Reebo Pick of the Week, Music, Regular Feature | Leave a comment

Max Reebo’s pick this week is “Sun Rising” by The Wanton Bishops.

The Wanton Bishops is a new band I’ve recently discovered while stuck at home with plenty of free time. They’re from Beirut, Lebanon and they’ve been around since 2011. Formed by Nader Mansour (vocals) and Eddy Ghossein (guitar), the two man band is regarded as one of the leading bands in the Middle East. They met outside the Bar Louie when Mansour tried to help Eddy out in a fist fight. Eddy paid back the favor by bailing Mansour out after another fight, and they’ve been making bluesy rock music ever since.

Right now they’ve got one album and two EP’s. “Sun Rising” is on their 2012 album Sleep with the Lights On. It’s definitely worth checking out.

Max Reebo’s Pick of the Week: “When I Paint My Masterpiece”

January 27, 2020 at 6:38 pm | Posted in Max Reebo Pick of the Week, Music, Regular Feature | Leave a comment

Max Reebo’s pick this week is “When I Paint My Masterpiece” by The Band.

The sixties and seventies were decades before my time, however, I’ve always been a lover of music regardless of when it came out. Surprisingly, I went a long time without ever know who The Band was. Yes, The Band. When a musical group can simply call themselves that, they better bring it.

The group started out as a backup band for Ronnie Hawkins and later Bob Dylan. In 1970 they went off on their own as The Band and started a career that stretched into ten studio albums. If you’ve never seen the band, I highly recommend checking out the documentary that Martin Scorsese did, The Last Waltz.

There are a lot of good songs to choose from, classics like “The Weight”, “Up On Cripple Creek”, “The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down”, and “Don’t Do It.” And let us not forget, “When I Paint My Masterpiece” from Cahoots.

Max Reebo’s Pick of the Week: “Under the Graveyard”

December 9, 2019 at 9:42 am | Posted in Max Reebo Pick of the Week, Music, Regular Feature | Leave a comment

Max Reebo’s pick this week is “Under the Graveyard” by Ozzy Osbourne.

Ozzy has been around for a while, whether doing music with Black Sabbath or releasing songs on his own. His latest single “Under the Graveyard” will come out next month on his new album Ordinary Man. This is his first single in nine years, and it will be out on his twelfth studio album. For this song you’ve got Ozzy on vocals, Andrew Watt on guitar, Duff McKagan (Guns N’ Roses) on bass, and Chad Smith (Red Hot Chili Peppers) on drums.

As an Ozzy fan, I’m looking forward to the new album next month.

Max Reebo’s Pick of the Week: “Get Yourself Free”

November 19, 2019 at 12:26 pm | Posted in Max Reebo Pick of the Week, Music, Regular Feature | Leave a comment

Max Reebo’s pick this week is “Get Yourself Free” by The Temperance Movement.

A new band I’ve discovered is The Temperance Movement. They’ve been around since 2011 but they’ve only put out three albums, including their latest 2018 album A Deeper Cut. The new album put them on my radar, but there’s some really great songs on their older albums, like this one.

“Get Yourself Free” is from their second studio album, White Bear. The band features Phil Campbell on vocals, Luke Potashnick and Paul Sayer on guitar, Nick Fyffe on bass, and Damon Wilson on drums. They’re a mixture of culture with members from Scotland, England and Australia. Definitely one to keep an eye on.

Max Reebo’s Pick of the Week: “Bread & Water”

November 11, 2019 at 9:40 am | Posted in Max Reebo Pick of the Week, Music, Regular Feature | Leave a comment

Max Reebo’s pick this week is “Bread & Water” by Ryan Bingham.

Ryan Bingham falls somewhere in between country and rock. One thing is for sure, he’s got some good songs. “Bread & Water” is off of his album Mescalito, which is a fairly solid album.

Ryan Bingham does vocals and acoustic guitar backed by his band, The Dead Horses. Mescalito features quite a few guest musicians including Marc Ford (former lead guitarist for The Black Crowes), Terry Allen, and Joe Ely. So far they’ve put out seven studio albums, all of which have some good tracks. If you like the sound, be sure to check out the rest of their catalog.

Max Reebo’s Pick of the Week: “Left Behind”

October 15, 2019 at 6:13 am | Posted in Max Reebo Pick of the Week, Music, Regular Feature | Leave a comment

Max Reebo’s pick this week is “Left Behind” by Another Animal.

Another Animal is the result of a hard rock supergroup formed by members of Godsmack, Dropbox and Ugly Kid Joe.

Another Animal came about due to writer’s block for Godsmack‘s vocalist and songwriter. Godsmack‘s lead guitarist Tony Rombola, drummer Shannon Larkin, and bassist Robbie Merril joined up with Ugly Kid Joe‘s lead singer Whitfield Crane and Dropbox‘s guitarist Lee Richards. The result: Another Animal. They only made one album, Another Animal, however they did release a new single in 2011 called “Fall of Rome”. If you like “Left Behind” I’d also recommend checking out “Broken Again”.

Max Reebo’s Pick of the Week: “Let Them Eat Rock”

October 8, 2019 at 6:42 am | Posted in Max Reebo Pick of the Week, Music, Regular Feature | Leave a comment

Max Reebo’s pick this week is “Let Them Eat Rock” by The Upper Crust.

I found this one via Pandora through my Krokus station. The Upper Crust does a superb job of channeling AC/DC (Bon Scott era) without lifting guitar riffs. They even capture the same lyrical charm even while being a parody band.

If you like that one, there’s plenty more. The Upper Crust has been around since 1995 with their 18th century aristocratic fop outfits complete with stage names like Lord Bendover (Nat Freedberg, guitar and vocals), Count Bassie (Chris Cote, bass), The Duc D’istortion (Dave Fredette, guitar) and Jackie Kickassis (Jim Janota, drums). The Boston band has done seven albums over the years with their last one in 2017, and they’re still doing live shows. “Let Them Eat Rock” is off their first album of the same name.

September 30, 2019 at 8:15 am | Posted in Max Reebo Pick of the Week, Music, Regular Feature | Leave a comment

The Sounds is a Swedish band that’s been around since 1998.

While they haven’t put out an album in a while, the band is still active and touring. “Sound With a Mission” is off their second album Dying to Say This to You which came out in 2006.

Max Reebo’s Pick of the Week: “I’m Not Drowning”

September 16, 2019 at 7:58 pm | Posted in Max Reebo Pick of the Week, Music, Regular Feature | Leave a comment

Max Reebo’s pick this week is “I’m Not Drowning” by Steve Winwood.

Some songs just resonate with you. Steve Winwood‘s “I’m Not Drowning” is a quiet song, but the guitar and the backing instruments create a beat that penetrates the soul with an upbeat melody.

Steve Winwood is an English musician that has done a lot of solo work, but he’s also been a member of The Spencer Davis Group, Traffic, Blind Faith and Go. Born in Handsworth, Birmingham, Steve has earned a lot of awards and accolades over the years, and he’s put out a lot of albums. “I’m Not Drowning” can be found on Nine Lives, his ninth studio solo album.
