Video of the Day #87: Simone Felice

Simone Felice will release his new solo album in april 2012. I’m a long time fan and I’m really looking forward to the album. Especially because these first soundbites seem to be quite close to the material on the first The Duke & The King album, which was a five hearts album here at and was also #3 on my top albums of the year 2009 list. These couple of videos have been out for a while and it’s criminal that I haven’t posted these yet. These marvellous songs are Hey Bobby Ray and New York Times, both from the upcoming album.

A Quick Review: The Duke & The King – Long Live The Duke & The King

The Duke & The King: Long Live The Duke & The King (Silva Oak / Loose, 2010)

At first, I was really disappointed, but I’m starting to enjoy this more and more. I loved the debut album and gave it full five hearts. The debut was an extremely beautiful folk album that also had a little bit of soul thing goin on. The only problem with the new album for me is that the soul thing is starting to take full control. And even though most of these folk soul songs (like Hudson River or Have You Seen It? for example) are actually very good, I can’t get totally excited because it’s just not the kind of stuff I personally love. But don’t mind me. It’s my own problem that my preferred Simone Felice album wouldn’t contain anything else except acoustic guitar and Simone Felice’s voice. I just love that voice.
