Jam Of The Day – Not A Song – Jim White vs. The Packway Handle Band

From the album Take It Like A Man. Flashback to a summer day in the 70s.

Jam Of The Day – Ex’s And Oh’s – Elle King

The first time I heard this song, I was like… “Oh, it’s ripping off Jack White’s cover of the old blues tune ‘I’m Shaking’ by Little Willie John.” “It has that formulated retro kinda sound that hipsters and music gatekeepers love so much.” “I’m kinda digging this song. Yeah, it’s pretty cool.” Subscribe to the JamSpreader playlist on Spotify. Spread […]

Jam Of The Day – Celeste – Ezra Vine

Jam Of The Day – Celeste – Ezra Vine

Ezra Vine describes this song as “an exploration of confusion as well as optimism, and the often blurred lines between reality and desire.” Do I really want to get that deep with it? No. While I always appreciate an intelligent lyric, if this was 1967 and I was on American Bandstand playing Rate A Record, I would say “Well Dick, […]

Jam Of The Day – Amnesia – 5 Seconds Of Summer

Jam Of The Day – Amnesia – 5 Seconds Of Summer

I hate boy bands. They’re so fake. They’re too pretty, too polished, and too plastic. I hate how young girls get sold the illusion and fall into the trap of wasting so much of their time, energy, emotions, and money on them. I used to be one of those girls until I saw the boy band “industry” from the inside […]
