Broken Bells were an alternative radio hit with their self-titled debut album, but could their sophomore disc live up to the hype?
The duo made up of Danger Mouse (Brian Burton,) and James Mercer, the lead singer of the The Shins, looked to do just that when they released their second full length album this month, the interestingly titled After the Disco, released on January 14.
The title of Broken Bells latest record may be After the Disco, but the album ironically evokes almost Bee Gees-esque vocals throughout.
Kicking off with the track “Perfect World,” the duo jumps right in with thought provoking lyrics “I’ve got nothing left. It’s kind of wonderful, ‘cause there’s nothing they can take away,” all while keeping your head bobbing and leg thumping.
The Cook Trio performed a live session in the WFIT studios on Feb. 21. The Cook Trio composed of brothers Ian and Jason Cook on guitar, and Kyle Jones on bass. With myriad influences from Coltrane to Monk, their music brings an American perspective to Gypsy jazz in the style of Django Reinhart.
Our first Sound Waves live session of the year kicks off with a set of local music featuring Michael Jon Goodrich from Melbourne Beach.
While juggling his own busy business and family life, Michael has put together some fine tunes. He’ll bring his band into our studios at noontime this Friday Jan. 17. It’s a great way to spend your lunch hour hearing some live local music on WFIT 89.5 FM.
