It is Friday and time for the Friday Five Playlist. Each week we will be bringing you the best of what’s spinning on the turntables at NBR HQ.
1. Doin’ What You Were Doin’ by Vintage Trouble
We can’t get enough of the new Vintage Trouble album 1 Hopeful Rd. This the band’s first video to be released from their sophomore album which was released in August via Blue Note Records. The band have been out on the road with the mighty AC/DC throughout the summer and are also about to embark on a headline U.S. tour.
2. Mechanical Heart by Beth Hart
Carrying on with the soulful side of blues we move on to Beth Hart. Mechanical Heart is taken from Beth’s latest album Better Than Home which was released earlier this year via Provogue/Mascot Label Group.
3. Spinning by Southside Johnny and the Asbury Jukes
Southside Johnny is back with some soulful blues rock in the shape of Spinning from the band’s latest album Soultime.
4. Mama Knows by Sister Sparrow and the Dirty Birds
The first single from their latest album The Weather Below, Mama Knows is another soulful number with some wonderful bluesy undertones. The band’s latest album was produced by Ryan Hadlock (The Lumineers, Vance Joy) and is well worth a listen.
5. Rollin and Tumblin by R.L. Burnside
It’s been ten years this week since the passing of the great R.L. Burnside. His legacy lives on with his grandson (also featured on drums in this video) via the Cedric Burnside Project who we saw touring the UK earlier this summer.
