Max Reebo’s Pick of the Week: “The Message is Get Down”

June 17, 2019 at 12:01 am | Posted in Max Reebo Pick of the Week, Music, Regular Feature | Leave a comment

Max Reebo’s pick this week is Valley of the Sun “The Message is Get Down.”

I found this one via Joe Tavano over at RetroZap. In their Discord chat, Joe mention finding this album by Valley of the Sun. After checking it out, I found some songs I really liked, including this one. It’s off their 2014 album Electric Talons of the Thunder Hawk.

Valley of the Sun is a Cincinnati band featuring Ryan Ferrier on guitar and vocals, Aaron Boyer on drums, and Ryan McAllister on bass. They’ve got a couple albums so if you like the song, happy hunting.

Max Reebo’s Pick of the Week: “I’m a Man”

June 10, 2019 at 5:31 am | Posted in Max Reebo Pick of the Week, Music, Regular Feature | Leave a comment

Max Reebo’s pick this week is “I’m a Man” by Black Strobe.

Muddy Waters sang it first, but Black Strobe gave it a new life. “I’m a Man” has a great beat, great vocals, and catchy lyrics that just plain work.

Black Strobe is a French band who has focused on electronic music. They’ve been around since 1997, but they didn’t put their first album out until 2007. Burn Your Own Church included the hit “I’m a Man” which was featured in Guy Ritchie’s film RocknRolla. While they don’t have much to choose from, as a music hunter, you only need one good song to make the cut.

Max Reebo’s Pick of the Week: “Just Like A Woman”

June 3, 2019 at 8:25 am | Posted in Max Reebo Pick of the Week, Music, Regular Feature | Leave a comment

Max Reebo’s pick this week is “Just Like A Woman” by Little Caesar.

Sometimes you come across a song that’s good, and sometimes you come across one that’s epic. Little Caesar‘s “Just Like A Woman” floored me when I first heard it. It’s a soft rock song, but it has that magical sound to it that sets it apart from the hordes of crappy soft rock songs. The beat and lyrics are perfect.

Little Caesar is a band that doesn’t get radio play and just about no one has ever heard of them. Yet they’ve been around since 1989 and their first album hit 139 on The Billboard 200. They band is still going with eight albums in their discography (the last one being Eight which was released in 2018).

I’ve sampled some of their albums, and they’ve got some decent songs here and there, though overall it’s a bit of a dated 80’s rock sound. Their album Redemption was released in 2009. With just nine songs, and a formula that hasn’t really changed much, it would be easy to miss the gem that is song #9; “Just Like A Woman.”

If you like the song as much as I did, make sure to head on over to Amazon and buy it. It’s only $0.89. That’s a heck of a deal for a great song.

Max Reebo’s Pick of the Week: “Born”

May 27, 2019 at 12:01 am | Posted in Max Reebo Pick of the Week, Music, Regular Feature | Leave a comment

Max Reebo’s pick this week is “Born” by Hugo.

Hugo Chakrabongse Levy, better known simply as Hugo, is a half-Thai, half-British, singer-songwriter with some royal heritage tracing back to King Rama V of Siam. I came across his music when I heard his version of Jay-Z’s “99 Problems.” Originally he started out as a teenager in the band Siplor and they released four studio albums, several of which were banned from the radio. He’s only done two albums as Hugo, and there’s good songs on each.

“Born” appears on Old Tyme Religion (2011). Other great songs from that album include “99 Problems”, “Hopelessly Stoned”, and “Bread & Butter.”
