D'Angelo recently paid tribute to Prince on the Jimmy Fallon show with a stunning rendition of "Sometimes It Snows In April" with help from Princess (Maya Rudolph and Gretchen Lieberum).
Yes, folks, we're hosting TWO in-stores this Saturday! After the 5:30 performance by The Heavy, we will welcome Kentucky singer-songwriter Daniel Martin Moore to the Easy Street stage around 7pm! This will be Moore's only Seattle appearance on this tour!
Moore has released three albums on Sub Pop, 2008's Stray Age, 2010's Dear Companion (a collaboration with Jim James of My Morning Jacket and Ben Sollee) and 2011's In The Cool Of The Day, with subsequent albums released on Moore's own label Ol' Kentuck Records. His most recent, Golden Age, is another team effort with co-producer Jim James, about which All Music wrote: "[Moore] has put together another sublime set of unassuming yet subtly majestic piano-led folk-pop gems that blur the lines between morning dew reverie and rainy evening melancholy. Moore's even-keeled, vibrato-less vocals, evocative lyrics, and predilection for artful balladry suggests 'Still Crazy After All These Years'-era Paul Simon by way of Andrew Bird, and the sparse yet detailed soft pop arrangements invoke the names of late-'70s singer/songwriters like Randy Newman, Gram Parsons, and Ian Matthews. Warm, weary, but bereft of self-pity, Moore, more often than not, lets the songs swing, albeit ever so slowly, like a front porch swing caught in a late afternoon breeze, and the best songs on Golden Age reflect that penchant for pairing heartache with Southern comfort."
Sound good? See you there! Free and all ages!
UK funk-rock powerhouse The Heavy are coming to Easy Street for a Saturday afternoon Soul Party this Saturday (4/30) at 5:30pm! They'll be laying down the jams from their new album Hurt & The Merciless, and then some! Free and all ages! How you like us now?
DJ/producer Sam Shepherd, aka Floating Points, spent the past five years working on his debut full-length, Elaenia, which "draws inspiration from classical, jazz, electronic music, soul and even Brazilian popular music." Our homies at Pitchfork rated the album (on Luaka Bop) a hefty 8.5, saying "Elaenia is as warm and fluid an 'electronic' album as you will hear all year, and it has a timeless feel: There's no reason it could not have been written and recorded 10, 20, or even 30 years ago. Now Floating Points is taking it on the road, with a stop at Neumos on May 3rd (21+). Enter to win a pair of tickets by e-mailing us with the subject line "Thin Air" and please include first & last name with entry. We'll draw a winner this Friday (4/29). Good luck!

New Zealand singer-songwriter Gin Wigmore doesn't pull many punches on her new album, the appropriately-titled Blood To Bone, a very personal album largely dealing with love and loss. All Music writes that Wigmore's third release finds her "transitioning from the vaguely rootsy rocker of her 2009 debut Holy Smoke - an album recorded with Ryan Adams' Cardinals in tow - into a hybrid of Lorde's artful darkness and Amy Winehouse's soulful diva." We are giving away a pair of tickets to Wigmore's April 27th show at Neumos! Enter to win by e-mailing us with the subject line "New Rush" and please include first & last name with entry. We'll draw a winner on 4/26. Good luck!
