Happy Easter Go Crank The Tunes

After your Easter Dinners please spend some time with your folks and family, by all means. If you aren’t about that life go watch movies and crank the tunes all day.

What I did, I found that Simon and Garfunkel’s “Bridge Over Troubled Water” works best for the type of mood today. It sets the tone honestly and holds a sentimental tradition of what Easter should be. Relaxed, and memorable.

I then gave the ole turn table a spin with The Police, and Neil Young’s “Comes a Time” I realized now that Neil Young is one of those artists that just gets it, not to live anything in his life that is a gimmick and he sings from the heart. He indeed does have a heart of gold, but this album in particular chokes me up,  makes me think of my dad and all of the good times. Comes a time makes me think so much of changing into adulthood and really realizing things that you haven’t before, it’s that step into another part of your life that at some point everyone crosses. Whether it be adulthood or maybe just moments of realizations, there in fact does come a time.

This does its deed for me for sure. Nick Drake’s “Pink Moon”. So much can be said about this album and how one feels when channeling their life. Nick Drake’s success of course posthumously became unnoticed, and wasn’t seen in the same solidarity the poet and gifted writer wanted during that time period. Nick Drake certainly has the unknown qualities out of any musician with his given amazing talents Undoubtedly my favorite from him.

Bob Dylan being Bob Dylan, can’t get enough of this album and just what songs lyrically he can master. Blonde on Blonde really captures the classic feel to your Sunday. As it did for me as I was sipping my PBR and twisting my beard. Just kidding folks I don’t have a beard, PBR on the other hand.. Total hipster move. Nonetheless Blonde on Blonde filled the void my ears needed to ear.

Lastly I decided to jump into some random funkiness and played some Parliament. I have my random flashes of funk, and boy does it do the trick, a jumping blaze of pure originality with head banging worthy bass. So funky, and so right I played “Flash Light” over and over. I made sure to end my music sesh on a solid upbeat note. That is with any other times make sure you end music on a solid note, it’s a major key!

I chose these three albums because of how easing, unleashing and relaxing they all are. They are the type of albums that if they repeated no one would turn and wonder why no one changed the music. After what was an extensive day of family these seemed to have hit the spot for my hungry ear.

Cheers, Jake

V.o.V New Track

Check it, Visions of Violence coming through with a new album.

This song Drippy Wet Coast really features a vivid persona with a catchy track to unveil their music ability.

Dillon Adair lead rapper, aka Rad Dill, aka  Lil Lit, with Bruins cap, fires off some rhymes and dimes and deserves to be heard, get the chance to subscribe to his YouTube channel! V.o.V.

Long time friend Dillon and I go way back, and here he is in Washington 3,000 miles away representing his arts and passions. From where he started he wanted to do it as a joke, and developed tracks on garage band. From there he brought it to his YouTube and has been for the last two years where him and his brother PJ aka Kid Child have been spitting fire ever since, known as Visionz of Violence. Now here at IndieBall we talk about all forms of music when brought to our attention, but first and foremost we like to hit home where creativity can be taken place. In this instance a friend is in pursuit of his passions and nothing can stop in what he is doing for him and his brother.

Give em shot, a subscribe, lyrically abound and creatively marked with a keen camera takes that shouldn’t go unrecognized. A fan of rap or not, the interpretation of their fan ship to horror, mystical, and fantasy go all on show for their videos. The road to becoming a rapper, R&B singer, musician isn’t easy. Most may not even have a thought in their mind, but to actually try is admirable.
