Music Monday: Later with Jools Holland

I've covered music on Jools Holland before, but as it's a weekly show with each series lasting about 5 or 6 shows, it's time to do it again! I dearly love Jools' programme, and ensure I watch it each and every week. An evening of Jools Holland for me revolves around frantic googling of acts, and manic writing on my brother's Facebook wall about them. You have no idea how excited I was to do this MM. Pru, thy name is dork.

Some of the performances are straight from Jools, whereas I had to rely on the bounty of YouTube for some others. Here are some of my favourites from this most recent series.

Eli 'Paperboy' Reed and the True Loves: This Dude is 24, has the most soulful voice you've heard in awhile, and looks straight out of Peggy Sue Got Married.

Take My Love With You

Carolina Chocolate Drops: Amazing, innovative, and again, you won't see anything like this anytime soon.

Hit 'Em Up Style (yes, that Hit 'Em Up Style)

Little Boots

Hayes Carll: Yet another American (Texas) artist I'd not heard of until the oh-so-British Later with Jools Holland. XPN listeners (TASH), you'll hear Hayes Carll every once in awhile on their playlist.

Katy Perry - shut up. She's actually not a bad singer, ok? Also, I like her dress.

Waking Up in Vegas


Sia

Buttons


Soon We'll Be Found

And finally, Kings of Leon. Yes, you all know who they are, but I love them and that's that.

Sex on Fire


Here's the playlist, but of course you can't find these songs just anywhere, so I've not been able to find all of the songs referenced above. Sorry.

Hey that Imelda May song is stellar.

THat's going on the old iPod today.

Also - I was promised Smiths. What has happened here?

A said...

Yes, I too was under the impression that we would be seeing some Smiths. I'm feeling a little Moz deficient over here, sweets.

Some of these are spectacular.

I love Jools Holland and his show. There. I've said it.

Ok, maybe just me, but the KoL "Sex on Fire" song is getting wayyyyy to much airplay here, on a few stations I listen to.

The rest I can dig.
