"You can't be told, no, you can't be told" (Xtina's Artist of the Day)

Posted by on Sunday, April 27, 2014

My song of the day is by Valerie June. Her music combines the best elements of rock and roll, pop, and soul in the vein of Jack White or the Black Keys. Her voice is heavy and rich and really all over the board. The title track "Pushin Against a Stone" feels like the Beatles mixed with 60s girl group pop, "You Can't be Told" has a definite rock and roll tinge to it, and other songs get a little bluegrass and folky. You have to listen to the whole album to understand its depth and range. Below are two of my favorites.
