The Weekly Airwave returns, as promised in the last episode. It’s in a different format from previous incarnations – I knew I wanted to just present the track without audio commentary, but I wasn’t sure whether I wanted to make it a part of the podcast feed or just link to the track. I decided on the latter, for various reasons which I won’t go in to now.
This week’s track: Hang Loose
by The Alabama Shakes
. Originally from their debut album, Boys & Girls
, Hang Loose is a jangly track that just puts a smile on my face. You may be more familiar with their track, Hold On
, which is probably the best on the album, but that’s not saying that the rest of the album is utter crap.
Quite the opposite – Boys & Girls is a fantastic album, and they recently released a follow-up: Sound & Color. I’m listening to it right now as I write this, and I’m pretty confident in saying that it’s a definite improvement over their debut.
