New Music: Vaudeville Etiquette

Here is what the Seattle Times said about Vaudeville Etiquette. The band’s website offers this:

Seattle folk-rock band Vaudeville Etiquette embraces their scope of influences moving fearlessly from swinging roots rock, to country, jazz, and blues. Comprised of Tayler Lynn, Bradley Laina, Matt Teske, Sander Vinberg, & Bryce Gourley, the band puts on a spirited live show that dares to span genre and category and brings viewers to their feet…or knees. Their debut album Debutantes & Dealers is a dynamic and ambitious journey, rife with boot-stomping anthems and airy melodic ballads. It releases on Sunyata Records April 15th, 2014.

Above is “Oh” — which I particularly like — and below is “Blood & Bone.”

Reading Music

The stories of the great bands and musicians are fascinating. Musicians as a group are brilliant, but often troubled. The combination of creativity and drama makes for great reading.

Here are some books to check out.

Duke Ellington brought class, sophistication and style to jazz which, until that point, was proudly unpolished and raucous. His story is profound. The author, Terry Teachout, also wrote "Pops," the acclaimed bio of Louis Armstrong. Click here or on the image.

The Grateful Dead don't get enough credit for the profound nature of its lyrics. Many of the band's songs are driven by a deep and literate Americana ("I'm Uncle Sam/That's who I am/Been hidin' out/In a rock and roll band" and "Majordomo Billy Bojangles/Sit down and have a drink with me/What's this about Alabama/Keeps comin' back to me?").

David Dodd's exhaustive study tells the story, song by song. Click here or on the image.
