The Killer Meters-Freak/Black Mountain

Holy great new music, Batman! I just discovered this band while doing a little spot of Youtube-ing, and, um….whoa. They’re dropping big stinky funk bombs all over the UK and EU. Check ‘em out at http://www.myspace.com/thekillermetersfunk and send some US love their way!

Dyke & The Blazers – My Sisters And My Brothers

I previously wrote about Dyke and the Blazers here. I’ve been listening to them a ton lately and can’t help but post another song. There isn’t much information about them on the web. Maybe because their front man Arlester “Dyke” Christian was shot to death at age 27, at the height of the band’s success. I hope you enjoy “My Sisters And My Brothers.” What a great song and only 398 views? Let’s pump this up! Share on Facebook, tweet, call your friends, or do whatever you do.

Soulive – Roll The Tape

If you’re into the new funk/soul thing, you can’t really go wrong with Soulive. They never fail to deliver melodies that exude funk and Eric Krasno never fails to deliver with some ripping guitar. This track isn’t about guitar though, it’s about horns. Does anyone hear the Bitches Brew influence? I wonder if that was intentional.

Dynamic Tints & Pieces of Peace-Be My Lady

If a man writes this song for you and you don’t fall in love with him your heart is made of stone. The Chicago-based group Pieces of Peace is also, almost certainly, the only band to ever be created in Chicago and disband in Singapore.

"Why would you deny me?"

If you’ve made it to Singapore as a band you’ve probably done something right, or have you?

I love my Dap Kings and my Amy Winehouse but sometimes there is nothing like the real deal.  This is song is 1960s soul that melts your heart and reminds you that you have to treat your lady right.

Dyke and the Blazers – Let a Woman Be a Woman

This song first appeared in 1969 and did not receive much critical acclaim. Recently, however, the English rock band, The Heavy, have gained success sampling the horn lines from this tune with their song “How You Like Me Now?” That song appeared most recently in a KIA commercial that aired during the Superbowl. The Heavy song is great, but it is always nice to see where the original comes from. I dare you not to dance to this one.

Earth, Wind & Fire – Sing a Song

Earth, Wind & Fire“When you feel down and out, sing a song!”  It’s hard to not do just that listening to this up-beat, happy-go-lucky funk melody.  Earth, Wind & Fire is the ultimate funk-pop band.  Their hit “Sing a Song” reached #5 on the U.S. Billboard Charts in 1976 and it’s regarded as one of the band’s most popular songs.  Founded in 1969 by Maurice White, EWF has sold over 90 million albums and enjoy continued success, performing songs to this day.

Lakeside – Fantastic Voyage

Happy Friday! It’s time to get pumped up for a great weekend. We are trying something new this week. Your Daily Song Fix will be bringing you three links that we find amazing or hilarious. We live and breathe the internet and technology so be sure to check out these links to hear about things that no one else delivers. Of course we will still be posting a song, so you’ll get your fix.

1. Please Rob Me is a hilarious but scary website that crawls Twitter to figure out when people tweet out that they won’t be home (giving you the optimal chance to rob them). The intentions are good – to raise awareness about what information you should not be sharing with the public.

2. Are you interested in starting your own business? Are you seeking information on a certain topic? Mixergy.com is where you want to be. In Andrew Warner’s words – “Imagine having a mix of experienced mentors teaching you their expertise. That’s my mission with Mixergy.com.” Andrew asks the best interview questions I have seen …it’s almost like he is reading your mind.

3. A funny Dave Chappelle and Martin Lawrence clip that most people haven’t seen:

And finally, enjoy your daily song fix!
