Love You

By: Laurie Gallardo

The glitz, the glamour, the insanity – your AMM host says that in a good way – is the stuff your senses are treated to with the spectacular Sweet Spirit livestream series, every Thursday night in October.

On the latest edition of your livestream of livestreams, Austin-based songwriter/vocalist Alesia Lani (the track “Love You” is featured on today’s AMM) is one of the featured special guests. And if you know, you know – keep your ears and eyes peeled for the latest from the recent Project ATX6 nominee. Lani shares the bill with eternally badass Austin post-punk outfit Pleasure Venom, and guest host bringing a country twist to the table, songwriter Roky Moon.

It’s all on the next Sweet Spirit livestream show, 8 p.m. (Central) tomorrow night, Thursday October 15, at Hotel Free TV. You can also watch the livestream in person at Hotel Vegas, 1502 E. 6th St., on the patio. Don’t forget your mask for safe social distancing.

Black Rainbows

We’re all guilty of building up expectations. So, you might spin Corinne Bailey Rae‘s latest blazer Black Rainbows and find it something of a departure for Rae, in terms of a style that incorporates R&B, jazz and soul. This one gets loud, bold, experimental in many parts, powered by guitar and unapologetic vitality, all inspired […]
