Max Reebo’s Pick of the Week: 6 Feet

October 26, 2020 at 2:19 am | Posted in Max Reebo Pick of the Week, Music, Regular Feature | Leave a comment

This week’s pick is “6 Feet” by Red Shahan.

I found this one last week while searching for new music. I’ve been on a bit of a county kick lately, and I’ve been mining the soundtrack for the show Yellowstone. Well that led me to Red Shahan.

“6 Feet” is off his new album Culberson County. To date, he’s only released two albums. So far I’ve only listened to the new one, but there’s some good songs on it, and if you like country, it’s worth checking out.

Max Reebo’s Pick of the Week: Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh

October 19, 2020 at 3:48 pm | Posted in Max Reebo Pick of the Week, Music, Regular Feature | Leave a comment

The band Say Hi still has one of the weirdest names I’ve ever come across for a song. It’s “Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh” (that’s eight Oh’s) off of their album appropriately named Oohs and Aahs.

I came across this song a long time ago on Amazon when I was searching for free songs. For those who don’t know, you can find free songs on Amazon. Just search MP3 Music and change the search settings to Price Lowest to High. While it may sound too good to be true, the catch is sifting through all the crappy music to find something worthwhile.

It’s funny, I’ve always liked this song but I’ve never bothered to search to see if the band had any other good songs. I’ll have to remember to check into that. For now, enjoy the tune. It’s bit odd but also a lot of fun.

Max Reebo’s Pick of the Week: Ballad of Miss Kate

October 14, 2020 at 8:21 pm | Posted in Max Reebo Pick of the Week, Music, Regular Feature | Leave a comment

This week’s pick is “Ballad of Miss Kate” by Matt Costa.

Some songs have wicked beats, others have provocative lyrics. Then there are the ones that tell stories. “The Ballad of Miss Kate” by Matt Costa is one of those. Kick back, turn it up, and listen to the story.

“The Ballad of Miss Kate” is off of Songs We Sing, Matt Costa‘s first full length studio album. He hasn’t put out too many albums to date, but if you’re looking for more, I highly recommend his song “TV Gods”.

Max Reebo’s Pick of the Week: “What is Home”

September 15, 2020 at 9:44 am | Posted in Max Reebo Pick of the Week, Music, Regular Feature | Leave a comment

Max Reebo’s pick this week is “What is Home” by The Black Crowes.

When most people think of The Black Crowes, they think of “She Talks to Angels” or “Hard to Handle”, but in 2009 they put out an album called Before the Frost…Until the Freeze. On that album, they strayed away from their typical sound for something completely different. Half of the album is almost country. One of my favorites from the album, and indeed, one of my favorites from their entire discography, is “What is Home”.

Max Reebo’s Pick of the Week: “Bliss”

June 16, 2020 at 7:26 pm | Posted in Max Reebo Pick of the Week, Music, Regular Feature | Leave a comment

Max Reebo’s pick this week is “Bliss” by Red Sun Rising.

Red Sun Rising is a band I’ve recently come across, even though they’ve been around since 2006. They were formed by high school classmates Mike Protech (vocals, guitar) and Ryan Williams (lead guitar) in Akron, Ohio. They signed their first record deal in 2014 and released Polyester Zeal which hit number 11 on the Billboard Hard Rock album chart. Two singles from that album each reached number 1 on the Mainstream Rock chart. They put out one other album in 2018, Thread, then went on indefinite hiatus in February this year.

Interestingly enough, the band changed their name to The Violent and released a new song last month called “Fly On the Wall.” In addition to their two studio albums, they have two independent albums which were released in 2010 and 2011, as well as three EP’s.

“Bliss” was off Polyester Zeal which featured Mike on vocals and guitar, Ryan Williams on lead guitar, Tyler Valendza on rhythm guitar, Ricky Miller on bass, and Pat Gerasia on drums. If you like that one, I also recommend “Worlds Away”, “Amnesia”, “Emotionless”, and “The Otherside.”

Max Reebo’s Pick of the Week: “Slippin”

May 19, 2020 at 2:17 pm | Posted in Max Reebo Pick of the Week, Music, Regular Feature | Leave a comment

Max Reebo’s pick this week is “Slippin” by The Fumes.

It’s a song you’ve never heard by a band you’ve never heard of, most likely. The Fumes is an Australian band formed in 2002 around vocalist and guitarist Steve Merry. Early on they were two man band with drummer Joel Battersby, but now it’s a three man band with Jacob Mann on drums, and Ryan Hazell on bass. They’ve put out a couple albums and EP’s, but they never really hit stardom. Despite that, Steve Merry has some pretty awesome guitar riffs and the band’s song list is worth a listen. From softer songs like “Slippin” to some harder stuff like “Cuddle With the Devil.”

“Slippin” appears on their 2006 album Guns of Gold, back when the band was just Steve and Joel.

Max Reebo’s Pick of the Week: “Fisherman”

May 5, 2020 at 1:37 pm | Posted in Max Reebo Pick of the Week, Music, Regular Feature | Leave a comment

Max Reebo’s pick this week is “Fisherman” by The Peach Kings.

The Peach Kings is a band I just discovered last week while looking for new music. They formed in 2010 and are composed by Paige Wood and Steven Dies. They only have one studio album and a couple EP’s so far, but they’ve got some good songs. “Fisherman” is from their 2012 EP Handsome Moves but it’s only available on vinyl. The digital EP doesn’t include it, but you can pick it up separately as a single.

If you like that one, be sure to check out their other music. “Thieves & Kings” is another good one.

Max Reebo’s Pick of the Week: “Shoot From the Hip”

April 28, 2020 at 5:39 pm | Posted in Max Reebo Pick of the Week, Music, Regular Feature | Leave a comment

Max Reebo’s pick this week is “Shoot From the Hip” by Brothers Osborne.

Brothers Osborne is a country band I’ve recently come across while searching for new bands. They’ve been around since 2013, but the two brothers in the band have been playing music since they were teenagers. The band composed of T.J. Osborne (lead vocals) and John Osborne (lead guitar, background vocals). Here’s some fun trivia. T.J. is short for Thomas John, and John’s middle name is Thomas. They’re dad, Thomas John Osborne, was not the most creative when it came to naming.

They released their first single in 2013, and their first EP the next year. Their first album wouldn’t hit outlets until 2016, and to this day, they only have two albums and a live album. They’ve won some awards, hit some top 40 charts, and had some pretty good success so far.

“Shoot From the Hip” isn’t actually on any of their albums. It’s from their 2014 EP self-titled Brothers Osborne. I’ve found quite a few songs I like by them, so they’re worth checking out.

Max Reebo’s Pick of the Week: “Leap of Faith”

April 21, 2020 at 7:48 am | Posted in Max Reebo Pick of the Week, Music, Regular Feature | Leave a comment

Max Reebo’s pick this week is “Leap of Faith” by Ryan Kinder.

In 2018 I saw John Fogerty and ZZ Top in concert for their Blues & Bayous tour. The opening act was Ryan Kinder, a musician I had never heard of. It was just him on stage with a guitar and two backing vocalists and they were good. Really good. Surprisingly, he hasn’t put out a full album yet, just a handful of singles and an EP.

“Leap of Faith” can be found on his EP The Road or you can just buy it as a single.

Max Reebo’s Pick of the Week: “Pink Noise King”

April 13, 2020 at 4:17 pm | Posted in Max Reebo Pick of the Week, Music, Regular Feature | Leave a comment

Max Reebo’s pick this week is “Pink Noise King” by The Brew.

The Brew is a British band from Grimsby (in northern England) formed by Jason Barwick (guitar, vocals), Kurtis Smith (drums), and Tim Smith (bass, vocals). Fun fact: Tim is Kurtis’ dad, which is something you don’t see to often with rock bands. They cut their first album in 2006 and over the years they’ve never had any lineup changes. They’ve stayed active and put out their eighth studio album last month. However, “Pink Noise King” is from their 2018 album Art of Persuasion.

If you like that one, be sure to check out their other stuff.
