I’ve got two welcome returns from artists that I love. The songs are both low-key bluesy, funky jams that still manage to showcase their amazing talents.
Gary Clark Jr. contribution to the upcoming film Deepwater Horizon about the biggest oil spill in US history. The song is a gospel tinged blues jam that downplays his guitar prowess while still conveying the pleading nature of the song to “take me down South”.
After a three year hiatus, Madeleine Peyroux returns with a vengeance as she declares that “Everything I Do Gonh Be Funky (From Now On)”. Judging by the spelling of the song, I kind of figured, she did not write this tune. I was correct. The legendary Allen Touissant penned this one and Madeleine brings it to life. Her new album Secular Hymns comes out on September 9.
