#TBT – Matt Corby – Souls A’Fire (Secret Garden Party 2013)

MattCorbyNYC2012I have way too many videos I rarely share….honestly, I take the video with the sole purpose of blogging but lets face it I get lazy. Here’s one of the rare videos I did post from one of Corby’s last Secret Garden parties in California in 2013. And in the spirit of Throw Back Thursday or #TBT I decided to revisit one of my favorite moments in the show.

As Matt is playing Souls A’Fire a nearby train goes by and Matt briefly stops singing to comment on the train but goes right back into singing.

Matt has been on hiatus for a while and hopes he makes his way back to Los Angeles because I miss his beautiful voice.

 

 

Review: Queen Caveat – Manufactured Happiness EP

Lauren Little, Ben Epand, Will Weissman and Jesse Magnuson = Queen Caveat


Queen Caveat, one of LA’s favorite indie rock band, recently released their new EP, Manufactured Happiness and I have been in musical heaven ever since.

When I first listened to Manufactured Happiness the song that hit me the hardest was Brave Boy. Lauren Little’s voice is absolutely perfect and the emotional range she exudes both pain and strength and when she sings…”I’m not afraid of being called crazy anymore…” I swear I lose my mind…..but in a good way. 

 

But after listening to this EP several times, I simply cannot choose my favorite song because each song is genuinely great. Almost as if this was a small glimpse into Queen Caveat’s soul as a band. From the moment the first track, Marion which jump starts a heart thumping ride from beginning to end.

Manufactured Happiness leaves me with the same feeling I have when I see Queen Caveat live – excited, exhilarated & fucking happy. If you’re headed to South by Southwest this year make sure to schedule some time to see Queen Caveat!
