My Music Picks

The two music picks I have for you this time around happen to be from two of my favorite male artists…Beck & Jack White.  I have been a big fan of Beck for many years now, so it’s so refreshing that he is still putting out great music.  This is a fairly mellow album, but the songs I included from his newest, Morning Phase, all touched me in a special way.  He is so musically gifted and has a unique way of getting his message across.  I am definitely still a fan after hearing this beautiful album.

81coqLBpCWL._SL1500_Jack White is almost the opposite of Beck in the way he relays his message.  Usually he has a very gritty approach to both his songs and lyrics.  Surprisingly though, Lazaretto shows a more lovely side of Jack’s musical persona.  This is a departure from what I’m used to hearing from him and all his musical side projects.  I say this in a positive light.  It’s quite obvious in this album that Nashville has definitely had an impact on him musically and brought out a softer side of him.  I love the addition of the female harmonies in quite a few of the songs.  But don’t get me wrong, there is still the Jack White grit very present on this album.  His bluesy approach to 3 out of 4 of my selections demonstrate that the Jack White of old is still very much there!  I wouldn’t have it any other way.   Listen, learn, & LOVE!!!  🙂
