The summer finally hit last week, a tad late. Now this week kicks off with some cooler temps and some rain! Kick ass. In a few minutes I’ll be heading off to the dentist to have my tooth checked out. I’m curious to know what’s going to happen with it.
Seeing as how I’ve got to get my butt in gear, I’m going to run right into the music…
I’m listening to Jamie Kent & The Options this morning. They’ve got a classic rock type of vibe mixed with some garage band sensibility. I’m hearing a mix of Van Morrison in there. But when I notice the influences such as Steely Dan and Jack Johnson, I’m also hearing that in there as well.
I like the humor in the lyrics. If I was feeling less politically correct this morning, I’d like throw it out at son of a bitch (cause the tooth thing is annoying). However, the bon of a sitch is a twist on it. Though if I’m not mistaken I’m pretty sure the first time it’s sung he does say son of a bitch.
The Jack vibe is definitely there in the island style laid back swing they’ve got going on. I can feel a bit of the Steely Dan, but it’s more implied. The production is not up to that level. But I don’t care. It’s a cool way to get the week started.
Go get ’em!
