The aptly named Rock powerhouse, Ballz Deluxe, have bulled their way into the collective consciousness of
Detroit’s own rockin’ blues masters themselves, The Muggs, are set to drop their third disc, “Born Ugly” April 29th, and Dr2 has been spinning it non-stop since we had it dropped in our in-box. The eagerly awaited follow up to 2008’s, “On With The Show”, has the Muggs driving us through a musical kaleidoscope, racing in and out of their early influences of the late 60’s and early 70’s blues laced rock of the time.
The Detroit-bred and world-tested musical menagerie called Natives Of The New Dawn have a new release out and we here at DR2 scored a copy a couple weeks back and just can't stop listening to the thing! The first day we received it, in a euphoric, ska-hip-hop-jazz-fusion-induced manic episode, we literally listened to it the entire car ride from Detroit To Tennessee
For all the Rock-n-Roll purists out there who feel that music today has lost it’s roots, that today’s young bands don’t know or respect the music that came before them, well, we have some good news, Taddy Porter will restore your faith. This band from the heartland of Oklahoma has done it right with their newest, self-titled, 12-track, bombshell.
Detroit is undoubtedly without equal in its musical history, and not just in quantity, but also in style and genre. We are so fortunate to live in a city where you can hear so many diverse styles on any given night, and the "January Sessions" EP from The Infatuations is a perfect example of this diversity and history all wrapped up in a single, musically inspired package!
