LaTasha Lee started out as a singer, and recently wrapped a band around her music. A modern spin on an older sound with a real world flavor. I look forward to seeing her music and style mature.
I found this band looking through a list of “Best New Music in Austin, TX”. Amazingly, I think she was somewhere near the middle of the list. As an added bonus, her music is available in lossless formats through Bandcamp
All mixed up.
Take Yasiin Bey (Mos Def), Marvin Gaye, and Aretha Franklin, and throw them together in a song called “Ms. Fat Booty“? Release the song on the internet, with a “pay what you want” model? And offer high quality FLAC downloads? Unheard of. Until now.
Gazaway, as a producer and DJ, seems to be pushing the envelope in all directions. With delicious results.
Been following them since seeing a sidewalk performance video in 2012. Fascinating to see them mature and change – from appearance to presentation to music. Enjoyed Fun Machine, and am looking forward to unwrapping their newest, Bad Self Portraits. Feels like the smoothness of a cappella blended with the funk of a jazz beat wrapped around popular melodies.
What a great name. Just fun to say. And even more fun to hear the music. Another import band playing good old Motown. No so keen on the production sound of Love Letter. Far Too Late and others are just great.
Always a sucker for blue-eyed soul. Not sure about the new swept back hair do. But I do like the music.
Seems like the UK is a hot bed for a genre I would have thought of as quintessential Americana. (Though Gin Wigmore, Amandine Bourgeois and the Pepper Pots might have something to say about that.)
Folks of a certain generation always confuse my name with that of Gordon Lightfoot. Probably happens once a month. And while I always chuckle, I must note that I’d much rather have the talent of this also-almost-homophonous singer.
