Hi. I realize it has been a while. How are you? I have something different for you. I really hope you enjoy it.
This week, I have been listening to the LA band Willodean’s release Awesome Life Decisions: Side Two. It is a bit poppier than I usually go into, but I really enjoy it. This release reminds me of a cross between Maroon 5 (it has an infusion of funk) and Portugal. The Man. They were handed to me with a comparison to Wilco, but I don’t hear it so much, though they do venture into the indi-country-alt-rock sound every once-in-a-while.
I digress. Though the singer can be a bit repetitive, I find myself playing this album over and over. The instrumentation is tasteful and never show-y.
If you have not noticed, this band is far from the usual punk and metal fare that we usually cover. Good music is good music, though.
