[fbshare type=”button”] [tweetmeme] JamSphere’s choice VIDEO OF THE WEEK for the week of 07 – 13 November 2011 is: DOOBIE BROTHERS – NOBODY. The Doobie Brothers may not be an indie group, you’re thinking, but we at Jamsphere in no way want to discriminate against anybody. We’re committed to indie but not immune to what we consider good music of any other extraction. The Doobie Brothers are the first major label band to feature as our Video Of The Week.
There’s no separating the unparalleled legacy of the Doobie Brothers from their 2010 HOR Records release World Gone Crazy . Their latest album may be most remarkable for the extent to which it stands completely on its own. World Gone Crazy is another chapter in one of the great American music stories, but it’s neither comeback nor nostalgia. An exhibition of aggressive and emotional performances, evocative storytelling, unapologetic attitude and world class musicianship, the collection is its own justification.
With founding members Tom Johnston and Pat Simmons, and 30 year-plus veterans John McFee and Michael Hossack, the Doobies have perfectly honored the band’s legacy with an offering that grows in unexpected new directions. As the new album’s lead single, “Nobody” brings things full circle.
At the end of December 2011 our staff will choose the JAMSPHERE “VIDEO OF THE YEAR” from the 3 videos with the highest number of “Thumbs Up” voting from our readers.
