Fiery Furnace: Bitter Tea

Fiery Furnace: Bitter Tea

Fiery Furnace is a brother and sister band that I'm finding hard to describe. Its ecclectic, its eccentric, circus-y, garage electronica, psychedelic pop . Anyway, I love it. If you're adventurous, give it a listen. If you're hesitant, listen to "Waiting to Know You" first and follow it up with "Nevers". Favorite Tracks: "In My Little Thatched Hut" "I'm In No Mood" "Bitter Tea"

Anybody who likes the sounds of Luther Vandross, Teddy Pendergrass, Freddie Jackson, Al Green and Marvin Gaye is going to feel blessed for discovering Randy Wilson! For singer and songwriter Randy Wilson, a career in music has been a dream deterred. This talented R&B artist is completing his second project “Up Close and Personal” for which he wrote all the songs, and is looking forward to the future. He is poised and ready to step back onto the music scene and realize his dreams of success. Growing up in Oakland, Califronia, his interest in music came about when he was 8 years old, along with football and baseball. A short while later his interest in music developed into a passion. His childhood friend’s older brother played drums in a group called “Bits & Pieces”. He was later chose to be the lead singer. The group performed at small nightclubs and hotels around the greater Bay Area for several years. The band eventually parted ways and Randy decided to pursue his interest in recording. His musical influences were artists such as Marvin Gaye, Al Green, Teddy Pendergrass and Luther Vandross. He also started his own small record label called “Regal Records” with help from a friend. Three months later he recorded his first single, “Something Inside”. The single was well received and garnered local radio play and also captured the attention of local promoter Paul Mack, Jr. He was soon opening shows for artists such as the Temptations, The OJays, Denise Williams, Maze featuring Frankie Beverly, Toni! Tony! Tone!, Roy Ayers, Stanley Clarke and many others. His 1987 CD project created a buzz with local promoters and radio so he began shopping for a record deal. Every major record label that Randy hit, the feedback was “Wow, you sound just like Luther”. While Randy loved that people said he sounded like Luther Vandross, his goal was for listeners to recognize and appreciate his own style of vocals. Letting his passion, sensitivity and vulnerability set him apart, Randy began honing his signature sound with the support of his family and inspiration from his mother, who is also a singer. One day a friend passed him a tape with music that “changed everything”. He bagan writing his own lyrics about experiences with family, friends and the daily challenges of life. “Love is such a powerful emotion and life is a gift from God. Music drives me,” says Randy. Randy recently shared the stage at the Conga Room in LA with R&B greats Stevie Wonder, Lenny Williams, D’Wayne Wiggins of Toni! Tony! Tone!, Jamie Fox and Raphael Saadiq in a benefit fundraiser and received kudos for his performance.

Franz Ferdinand have to have one of the coolest, most original, and most dance-able sounds around today. Their cool, retro sounding songs have been dominating my playlists since the release of their debut album, and I am just dying with excitement to add Tonight in its entirety to my collection of music (come on, any album with both "Ulysses" and "Lucid Dreams" can't be anything but brilliant). But the one thing that's really getting me psyched up more than anything about this album is that it is readily available in vinyl form at Urban Outfitters.

"We're an indie-vaudeville-conceptual-art-rock-slideshow band," says Jason Trachtenburg, father, husband and lead singer/ songwriter. In no uncertain terms, this album and this family band is an absolute trip. If you ever get the opportunity to see them live the daughter will play the drums, the dad will play some sort of keyboard contraption and the mother will just put slides up on an old school projector and it'll probably be the coolest show you've seen (it was for me).

  • To be honest, I had almost forgotten about Beirut. I'm not really sure how because this was one of my favorite albums of '06 and he is completely amazing. Indie folk, pop lovers will all appreciate this one.
