Being an active squatter of spotify, I tend to burn through music pretty quickly. So the ‘Discover Weekly’ playlist is always a lifesaver. This week I stumbled across a song called I Wanna Prove to You by The Lemon Twigs.
The Lemon Twigs are an American Rock band fronted by brothers Brian and Michael D’Addario. Much like their ‘out there’ style, their music has a touch of retro vibes to it. I was instantly attracted to the song that was on my spotify playlist, so i gave their album Do Hollywood a listen and instantly was hooked.
Their music are songs that will make you think you’re in a coming of age movie trailer, or just make you want to get up and dance and sing along!
Another song I dig is ‘The Good Mr. Square’ by The Pretty Things.
The Pretty things were formed in 1963- and are still rocking on! Originating from London, this group of rockers offer a variety of genres such as garage rock, psychedelic, blues and freakbeat. Their current members are Phil May,Dick Taylor, Frank Holland, George Woosey, and Jack Greenwood. Though this may be subject to change as they have quite the list of previous band members.
Their fashion styles were reflective of their time periods, which is perfect if you’re someone like me who loves the retro look!
Their music is perfect for any groove session!
For the last option I chose, was ‘I Love How You Love Me’ by Jeff Mangum.
Jeff is the one in the brown, and he’s mainly known for being the guitarist in the Neutral Milk Hotel. His music is, as much as I hate to admit it, is on the ‘If you’ve heard one, you’ve heard them all’ basis. Most all his songs are accompanied by an acoustic guitar to a beat that sounds very similar to all his other tracks. Thats not to say i dont like his song ‘I Love How You Love Me’. Its a beautiful song with meaningful lyrics, and his melancholy croon adds to the songs feel.
I would recommend Jeff’s music to anyone who needs a good song to cry to or maybe fall asleep to, as this song is very soft and easy on the ears. If you like more variety in your music, I would give Jeff’s band Neutral Milk Hotel a listen!
