Music Theory #6: Electric Six

In case you didn’t notice, there wasn’t a blog post this past Monday because even though I wanted to keep up my 5 days a week posting, I was a little busy over Super Bowl weekend and wasn’t able to write anything up for Monday. Hopefully going forward I’ll still be able to stick to the schedule, but don’t be surprised if there are a few days here and there where I take a break just for my own breathing room.

With that said, let’s go ahead and get into the next Music Theory – this week it’s one of my favorite bands ever!

Band: Electric Six

Latest Album: Bride of the Devil (2018)

Genre: Alternative rock/Dance-punk

Favorite Track: After Hours (see above)

Other Recommended Tracks: Danger! High Voltage, Gay Bar, Boy or Girl, Down at McDonnelzzz, The Newark Airport Boogie, Clusterfuck!, Late Night Obama Food, When Cowboys File For Divorce

Why I Enjoy Them: Electric Six snuck up on me as one of my favorite bands after I realized I had all their albums (and enjoyed most of them) and had seen them live every year for seven or eight years running. They’re one of my favorite bands to see in concert live (obviously) and their unique style of rock is hardly replicated with any other band. They have a weird sense of humor and often times the lyrics to their songs are catchy but don’t make much sense. They have a special place in my heart even though their last album or two have been more miss than hit. That being said, they release a new album every year which means they have a huge catalogue to go through and I’m sure there’s something for everybody within their songs.
