Max Reebo’s Pick of the Week: “Right Now Anywhere”

August 12, 2019 at 6:17 am | Posted in Max Reebo Pick of the Week, Music, Regular Feature | Leave a comment

Max Reebo’s pick this week is “Right Now Anywhere” by The Black Moods.

I had the opportunity to see The Black Moods in concert over the weekend and I was really impressed. Not only do they have some good music, but they’re also a great live band. If you ever get the opportunity, go for it. They put on a good show. “Right Now Anywhere” is off their 2016 album Medicine. They only have two albums so far, but they are releasing some singles in anticipation of their third album.

The Black Moods is a three man band with Josh Kennedy on guitar and vocals, Jordan Hoffman on bass, and Chico Diaz on drums. They’re an Arizona band who put their first album out in 2011. Their 2018 single “Bella Donna” hit the top 40 so they’ve been gaining some radio air play, and they’re on tour right now if you want to catch them.

Max Reebo’s Pick of the Week: “Dirt Bound”

July 30, 2019 at 7:08 am | Posted in Max Reebo Pick of the Week, Music, Regular Feature | Leave a comment

Max Reebo’s pick this week is “Dirt Bound” by Bonafide.

There are a decent amount of bands out there that sound similar to AC/DC. That’s because they inspired a lot of people. Bonafide nails the sound but with some vocals that help them stand apart.

“Dirt Bound” is off their their 2007 self-titled and debut album Bonafide. They’re a Swedish band that’s been around since 2006 and if you like “Dirt Bound” there’s plenty more where that came from. They have seven albums to choose from right now and plenty of good songs on all of them. Happy hunting.
