EP.5 Locksley, Maritime, Amy Winehouse, April 12, 2007

Posted by iweenie in Dig it!, mp3, music.

We’ll start off with the band Maritime who formed in 2003 out of the ashes of The Promise Ring and The Dismemberment Plan. The song Parade of Punk Rock T-shirts is a nice head bopper. I thoroughly enjoy it.

I’m going to let you tell me what you think about this next one. Amy Winehouse is making strides in the U.S. when it comes to her popularity and fame. Her newest CD Back to Black shows of her jazz and soul song talent. Listen to one of her more popular songs Rehab.

I have one more group for you to listen to… Locksley.
Locksley’s sound is similar to The Beatles pre-Rubber Soul, mixed with the Kinks, a bit of The Beach Boys and plenty of the youthful enthusiasm of punk. Fantastic, energetic harmonies and melodies that harkens back to the early ’60s but mixed with garage rock guitars, and modern production, creating a sound that is completely addictive. They have all the style, substance and savoir faire of a British rock band, the dynamic magnetism, and some brutally hot men of an American rock band mixed with the bygone art of timeless song writing from the era of Rogers and Hammerstein or Gershwin. Locksley manage to encompass all these things and sound fresh and original. Take a listen to one of their hits “Don’t Make Me Wait” and see if you dig these guys.
