Year of October "Behave"

Year of October "Behave"

As I was looking up Year of October on Facebook, I noticed that at the top of my "Invite your friends to like this page" list was JC Brooks and the Uptown Sound. There is some similarity between  “Behave,” off their album “Stories” and JC Brook’s “Rouse Yourself,” mainly because they sing 'baby-' the same soulful, bitterweet manner. From there “Stories” digs deep into blues territory. Its heavy and biting, with organ and Phelicia Sullivan’s propensity to end phrases with a Patti Smith-esque uptick giving it plenty of personality. It’s good music for forgetting a no-good man, and the album is available for free on their bandcamp: yearofoctober.bandcamp.com/releases

Catch them at one of their many shows around Nashville this fall, the next going down at the Ruteledge on Oct. 17th. –Terra James-Jura
