valerie june “the hour”

it’s hard to pin down singer/songwriter valerie june‘s music to a single genre.  when you listen to her work, you might hear some country, some soul, some blues, and even some bluegrass, all of which echoes her tennesseean upbringing.  she herself describes her sound as “organic moonshine roots music”:

“Making music has been a journey. Just like a gardener starts gardening for the first time with no skills, you start making music and then you learn. With a little spark, a little moonshine, and a little magic, you make it happen. It took me a long time to work this raw and infertile soil so it would allow my seeds to flourish.”

get a taste of what’s she talking about in her new song “the hour”.  you’ll find the track on her latest studio album “pushin’ against a stone”.

alabama shakes “hang loose”

just listened to alabama shakes‘s grammy-nominated album boys & girls and i loved it.  brittany howard’s voice pulls you in by dancing over the songs with playful passion.  fellow bandmates zac cockrell, steve johnson & heath fogg follow suit while rocking the bass, drums, and guitar.  here’s their uplifting single “hang loose” (lyrics below).  if you haven’t already, check out the full album for yourself and let me know which song is your favorite:

Don’t worry sweet baby!
Don’t you ever worry ’bout a thing.
Put them worries on the shelf ‘n’ learn to love yourself
Don’t be your own worst enemy.

Hang loose, hang loose
Let the ocean worry ’bout bein’ blue.
Hang loose, hang loose.
Go with the tide and I’ma take care of you.

Come with me sweet darlin’.
I got a seat ya ticket for the plane.
We gonna fly to Waikiki, it’ll just be you ‘n’ me.
And we’ll let the sun melt our cares away.

Hang loose, hang loose.
Let the ocean worry ’bout bein’ blue.
Hang loose, hang loose.
Go with the tide and I’ma take care of you.

Alright, we gon’ be alright.
Alright, you’re gon’ be alright!

Hang loose.
Hang loose!
Hang loose.
Hang loose.
