music monday: postmodern jukebox

historical misappropriation

I just recently discovered Postmodern Jukebox and I now wonder how I've made it this long without knowing about this band. Seriously, these ladies & gents are absolutely amazing! This is the kind of music that transports me to another time & makes me want to spend my friday nights in a swanky speakeasy. Postmodern Jukebox does rock & pop covers in the style of jazz, swing & ragtime. Just take a listen to their rendition of Sweet … [Read more...]

music monday: valerie june

valerie june

    Happy music monday! I know I say this pretty much every music monday, but this album is a must have. Valerie June's vocals are intoxicating. Her sound is a mix of blues, soul, alternative and folk.
