Welshly Arms is a band from Lebron Country, or rather, Cleveland, Ohio, who combine their love of blues, rhythm & soul, and good old rock and roll to create a very rootsy rock sound full of robust power. They display fiery intensity on new song Legendary, whose raw garage rock and passionate blues ignite into a tornado of fire. The band’s collective musical influences includes venerated acts like Jimi Hendrix, The Temptations, Otis Redding, and Howlin Wolf. Welshly Arms’ bourbon soaked rock also evokes Jack White and The Black Keys.

While I was just returning from my adventures abroad, one of my favorite new LA bands was releasing their highly anticipated Legendary EP. Powers is responsible for one of my top songs of summer this year, in the form of wildly infectious Beat Of My Drum. They also soundtracked those memorable months by guesting on The Knocks’ Classic. With the release of Legendary, they flex their pop expertise muscles ever more. The title track is a bumping, grooving, and flushed earworm with plenty of cool sass and cheeky funk. Another track that was revealed from the Legendary EP that we can’t overlook is a disco jam named Hot, which you can stream below. Careful you don’t burn yourself with this steamy jam and get ready to shake that booty. You can purchase Powers’ Legendary EP on iTunes. I’m going to name these next few months Summer 2.0 instead of Fall considering Powers’ rad tunes and the unnaturally warm temperatures here in California.

Depeche Mode, new music, Letterman

March 13, 2013

Well, well, this is a gift. As we all know (and you should, if you don’t), Depeche Mode is set to release a brand new album, their 13th, on March 26. It’s kind of a big deal. We’ve all heard their lead single Heaven, which is effing good. The veterans visited the Dave Letterman show, and other than showcasing their new single on air, they performed a 47 minute set for the studio audience that showcased new material from Delta Machine. Sweeeeeeeeeeeeeeet.
