Top 5 | FRCH Jams of the Week

This week has been about designing and refining!  While doing so, I have had a jamming soundtrack to keep the thoughts and ideas flowing effortlessly.  The following are some of what has made the workday just that much sweeter!

Raphael Saadiq – It’s A Shame (Levi’s Pioneer Session Single)

This is a cover of a classic Spinners song put together by the good people at Levi’s (the jeans!).  They have recruited a slew of artists to reinterpret song that ‘inspire’ them. Great song!

Miami Sound – Rare Funk & Soul From Miami, Florida 1967-1974

A wonderful listen that compiles great funk and soul tracks recorded in Miami from an era when the microphones were crackly, and the drums were hot!  Good variety and great songs!

Cut Copy – Bright Like Neon Love

This is the first record from the Australian band that crafts a great sound that pulls from a variety of influences including New Order and Fleetwood Mac. The whole album is strong too!  A true rarity these days!

Mayer Hawthorne – A Strange Arrangement

Mayer Hawthorne is a new soul and R&B artist from Detroit, Michigan.  His sound is a striking homage that honors and adds to the legacy of the Motown ‘sound’.  Here is his latest video.

The Ramones – It’s Alive

I never really check for live albums, but this record has turned that silly, self-imposed rule on its head!  The Ramones blister through this live set, playing almost all of their popular favorites. 1,2,3,4…!
