Last night, Ben Howard and his band totally killed it on Jimmy Kimmel. This guy has such a unique voice and it really shines during this performance. The tune shows nice range too, starting and ending slowly and softly, but also getting a bit rockin’ towards the end.
Adele – “Someone Like You”
I’ve been diving into the new Adele album and this tune never fails to give me goosebumps. She performed it last night on Jimmy Kimmel and I think it’s even more incredible to see/hear her in a live setting. Almost seems unreal how amazing her voice is. But there she is… singing those notes. It’s for real! Can’t wait until I’m in the room instead of watching a video!
Young the Giant – “My Body”
On the bottom of my “to-do” list, I’ve written down a bunch of artists and bands that people recommend to me. I check a few out once and a while, and I never take them off the list, just in case I go back with a different mindset and feel differently about them. These 5 guys out of California got my attention right away with, “My Body”. There’s a catchiness to this tune, but it’s also got heavier elements of rock to it… they remind me a little of The Strokes and also of another up and coming California band I love – The Local Natives. Young the Giant’s self titled debut album just came Tuesday; here they are performing “My Body” live on Jimmy Kimmel:
