A Case of the Fridays

It’s a busy week of music here in the DC Metro area, no doubt. And I’m going to keep supplying it, leading off with “Shipwrecked,” by The Perfects. I love the wide-open soundscapes created by the 80s beats and the layered instrumentals. And they mesh perfectly with the vocalist who sounds a good bit like one of the guys from Tears For Fears. If you like what you hear, they’ll be at the Rock N Roll Hotel Monday, April 16th.

And we close out things this week with Amy Winehouse’s “Back To Black.” Everybody else has posted something of hers, so why not me. I’m really digging her smoky, neo-soul vocal stylings of this track and the way that she treats the dark lyrics.
