Sharon Jones & The Dap Kings - Midnight Rider

HAPPY DEVIATIONS - I was moving through the television lineup like a hungry tiger this weekend when I caught the end of an automobile commercial featuring the sensational Sharon Jones. Turns out the sponsor spot was for Lincoln and the song was "Midnight Rider." 

For those who don't know - who have not perhaps witnessed Sharon Jones, she is a wonder. A human light-bulb on stage. One of my all-time favorite live performers and perhaps not of this Earth... I kid with you of course, but she is a light and for those who need it, her music can be anything. The Dap Kings have proved to be one of the most focused bands in the business. And all of this, I remind you, during and throughout the woman's courageous fight with cancer. 

Imagine my surprise when I went in and found there was a whole live performance to share with you. I'm delighted to start this week out with a little magic. Hope you'll join me on this one...

Me And My Drummer - "Gun"

Hot Summer Sounds!

POW!  The third song off their new album "Love Is A Fridge" (2016) we're proud to be among the very first music sites out there to be sharing, the coolest new track in your hot summer list. "Gun" is an ethereal, atmosphere-heavy pop jam, think hot molasses laid over a Calvin Harris beat. Charlotte Brandi and Matze Pröllochs are the duo in Berlin behind this charismatic love-in going on in your ears. Right now we only have EU dates for them. With pop like this, I am hopelessly addicted. See you at the end of the summer!

Outlaw Roadshow Video Smorgasbord!

It's Outlaw Roadshow season again and we couldn't be more delighted to share with you all the sights, sounds and red hot names in music we will be spotlighting in 2016, but first let's take a little teaser look back at some recording sessions we have recorded. (Seriously these have built up way too fast and we promise to get them all out to you in the many weeks to come. 

Today's video teases are individual live tracks recorded in private session sessions. Think you'll find that not only are these artists amazing, you will find yourself wanting more. Full sessions for these artists will emerge in the coming days on 

The Outlaw artists: Rainbow Kitten Surprise (one of the stars in our big New York City show at the Bowery Ballroom on May 27), Skunkmello (about to launch a May residency at the Bowery Electric in support of new album Hot Chicken), The Rationales have May dates in Massachusetts) and Lauren Marsh (playing The City Winery in NY in support of her sweet new EP Veracity) are all names to know in the indie music world today.
