Wakey!Wakey! is frontman Mike Grubbs' band, a tall skinny straight guy that can rock a piano, and he can sing, like really belt it out. You can get a free download of his covers only album which will validate my previous sentence. It is nothing but piano and him singing, but it's not like your average piano man in a bar, it's really good and I actually can't stop listening to it. So their album, "Almost everything I wish I'd said the last time I saw you...", came out a while ago and it's quite excellent, if you like piano rock, this is one you must check out. And really, how can you not check out an album titled like that?
I am in one of those funks where I am painfully sick and tired of everything in my itunes library and took a break from listening to music for a few days. It is amazing all the stuff that can pop into your head when music doesn't fill it. Out of the blue, I found myself involuntarily whistling the hook from Wakey!Wakey!'s song, "Twenty-Two". I have no idea how it got there, I hadn't listened to the song in months, but there it was, so I did a little searching and came across this gem:
some free mixtapes available. It makes so much sense to use Wakey!Wakey!'s catchy hooks as a backing, since it is the type of song that can just get stuck in your head months after you have last listened to it. Theo does a great job using all the catchy parts to his advantage. Listen with caution, the whistling will be stuck in your head for days, but that's not always a bad thing.
