It's been awhile since I've written anything, but lately I've been trying to step out of my comfort zone. I listened to some folk music the other day and I did not like it at all. Probably the worst thing I've listened to in awhile. Worse than Jaden Smith's new single. Have you heard it? Good, don't.
Anyway, I finally had the chance to sit down and discover some new music.
So after searching for some new tunes, I found a folk band from Texas. Their name is Shakey Graves. Now after listening to the first folk band (that I despise) I thought that maybe this isn't what all folk bands sound like, so I decided to give Shakey Graves a try.
Again, folk music isn't my forte, actually I don't really think any type of music is my forte... I LOVE ALL DA SONGZZZ.
I really like this band though. They are very relaxing. I'm listening to their track, "Unlucky Skin" from their 2011 album 'Roll The Bones'. There is clapping in the background and the banjo player is just plucking away. The 2 vocalists are telling a story and harmonize very well together. It sounds a little country, especially with the harmonica fading in and out. It's a very upbeat song. Just chill man, just chill.
Now I listened to their newest single, "Dearly Departed". They have a lady vocalist. it's a lot harder and a more country. The banjo disappeared :[ I'm not sure if I like the newer Shakey Graves. But I did only hear one song, I guess we shall see...
Still, I think Shakey Graves are worth checking out. They're still a good band!
