Here is the playlist for tonightâs Samâs Sunday School! Iâd like to remind you all that the reason I play some of these tunes is to gauge your reactions to them. Sometimes a song that plays here, becomes the next big thing on Alice based on YOUR opinions! You can comment below or if youâd rather email privately- do so: firstname.lastname@example.org
2. Anberlin- Impossible Album:Dark is the Way, Light is a Place (Release Date: September 2010) Website:http://www.anberlin.com/ The new album title for the groupâs 5th studio release comes from the Dylan Thomas poem âPoem on His Birthday.â
3. Nikki & Rich- Cat & Mouse
Album:Everything (Release Date: September 28, 2010) Website:http://www.myspace.com/nikkiandrich
LAâs Nikki Leonti and Rich Skillz have an unmistakable chemistry. The duo was paired up to do some writing by Nikkiâs manager and discovered they had a little something more so they joined forces as an act.
4. Gin Blossoms- Miss Disarray
Album:No Chocolate Cake (Release Date: September 28, 2010) Website:http://www.ginblossoms.net/
The guys in the GBs enjoyed immense success in the mid 90s with songs like âFollow You Downâ and âTil I Hear It From You.â Last year they released a live album that had recordings of several fan favorites and a cover of âRocket Manâ from Elton John. No Chocolate Cake will be their 5th studio album and their first full-length of new material in 4 years.
5. Brandon Flowers- Crossfire
Album:Flamingo (Release Date: September 24, 2010) Website:http://www.brandonflowersmusic.com/
A lot of the material for this album was originally written for The Killers but since the band wanted a break- Brandon decided to use them for a solo release. Charlize Theron is in the video and she kicks some ninjaâs butts. Watch the video below:
7. Burnham- Catch Me If You Can
Website:http://burnhammusic.com/ If you arenât tired of young boys singing about love they canât possibly understand yet (like Justin Bieber), hereâs another group for you. But seriously, the 3 brothers, Alex, Andre and Forrest have been performing together for 7 years (they are only 18, 16 and 14!). For this release, the brothers collaborated with very well-known songwriters like Ryan Tedder of OneRepublic who co-wrote this song with them. And yes, they are going to be touring with one Justin Bieber.
8. Jarrod Niemann - Lover, Lover (cover of Sonia Dada)
Album:Judge Jarrod & The Hung Jury Website:http://www.jerrodniemannofficial.com/
This one might sound familiarâ¦ because the chorus was written by Dan Pritzer of Sonia Dada. The title of the SD song is âYou Donât Treat Me No Good.â In his bio- he credits some other inspirational moments in his song-writing to artists Electric Light Orchestra and the Beach Boys. Before his solo career launching- heâd written songs for Garth Brooks, Julie Roberts and Blake Shelton (among others!)
The following recordings were done in our Alice AT&T Session Studio Monday, July 12, 2010.
