Welcome to the "Daily Song Drop": theguysfrom.com's song of the day feature where our resident indie music writer and former DJ Shaun Cordingley features a song every weekday that he feels you need to hear.
Oh My God - Love and a .38
You know, I had been going through the DSD listing this month and noticed that I have not had a lot of indie rock featured, and the Los Angeles Rock band Love and a .38 hit me up on twitter, and "Oh My God".
This is rock and roll for fans of rock, by fans of rock--you can totally hear a deep love for the genre throughout their whole debut album Nomads, as you can hear elements of southern rock, arena rock, alt-rock...classic rock all mixed together into a sound that is wholly their own. "Oh My God" is the track that stuck with me the most, which is why I've got the video for you below:
Honestly, I don't know that I can say much else: if you're one of those folks who I see around complaining that "rock is dead", you need to be paying attention to Love and a .38. "Oh My God" has got grit, it's got attitude, a pure rock vocalist, and a guitar that screams to be heard reverbing in an arena (or maybe just driving the open highway).
You should also give the Dec 16/Jan 17 Playlist a listen! The February Playlist will be available this coming Friday, with (hopefully) all of the DSD tracks!
Remember, if you want me to expand where I put these playlists beyond Apple Music, you just need to let me know on Twitter, and I'll see what I can do.
The Guys From do not hold the rights to any "Daily Song Drop" songs, it is more our hope to expose our readers to new and different music that we are enjoying, or re-expose them to artists they may have forgotten about.
Above the description of the song will be the song name, followed by the artists' name linked to their website, so you can fall down the rabbit hole, finding and supporting what you dig.
