Obsessions Of The Week - 3/21/14
Wolverines - I Am The Avalanche
Been spinning this new record all week. (And by spinning, I mean pressing play on my iPhone). I've known of Vinnie (The Movielife, Head Automatica) for years now, and always kept an eye on his projects. I was finally fortunate enough to catch his acoustic set at the Atlanta date of Warped Tour this past summer. All that sweating was worth it, he's incredible. It took 6 years to get a second album out of these dudes, thankfully it only took 3 to get a third one. I'm glad they took their time.
Favorite Tracks: "Where Were You" and "Young Kerouacs".

Jack and White
Stop what you're doing. If you only check out one band this month, please make it this one. I love these two! And after a little googling, I figured out why White (Brooke) looked so familiar. She was an American Idol contestant back in 2007. My former boss and the amazing woman behind @TheRyman turned me onto this two a while back, and I've been wearing out their Gemini EP recently. It's a great spring record. They haven't put out any new music since 2012, but I'm hoping more is on the way soon.

Lady Antebellum w/ Kip Moore & Kacey Musgraves
A video of these 5 wonderful people covering my ALL TIME FAVE popped up on Lady A's Webisode Wednesday this week. Shoutout to my roommate for bringing it to my attention. This song has been covered many a time, and it's so well written, it's incredibly hard to mess up. REGARDLESS, Lady A, Kacey and Kip all sound phenomenal. Ignore Kacey's awkward dancing and focus on the harmonies. And also Kip Moore's impression of Bruce Springsteen trying to be Stevie Nicks. I wonder if Lady A will do this song when they perform with Stevie Nicks (MY DREAM) at the ACM's on April 6th? Hmmm...
