Fort Worth's own Leon Bridges stopped through LA's KCRW yesterday to perform some jams for Morning Becomes Eclectic. The set included just about all of the songs from Leon's debut full-length Coming Home, as well as one that probably should have been on the record ("Daisy Mae"), and a very nice shout to GvsB...
It's been way too long since we were blown away by someone from around here, but we feel like these brilliant throwback soul jams from Crowley's Leon Bridges are pretty undeniable. We don't know much about Bridges at this point, and it's hard to believe that this kid channeling a young Sam Cooke comes from our own backyard, or anywhere, but we can't escape the promise of greatness we keep hearing in his timeless songs...
Roberto Cacciapaglia here. He was heavily involved in the Anne Steele music from the video before, and a pioneer of computers in music. This record also has some of my favorite album art.

These guys kill it on the regular. -- Josh, White Denim
Henry Cow with a beautifully shot and performed live production. Every member of this group is fantastic. I wish most live recordings looked and sounded like this. -- Josh, White Denim
Emmylou and the Hot Band tearing it up. Seriously tearing it up. This performance always gets me super pumped! -- Josh, White Denim
Pretty sure we've talked about this one before. I still listen regularly. So good.
