All Your Favorite Bands


The Los Angeles band Dawes are a band that I am only vaguely familiar with but what I've heard I like.
I acquired a copy of their 2009 debut album North Hills a while back which I thought had a bit of a Laurel Canyon feel about it.

Rol of My Top Ten fame appears to be a bit of a fan and has featured them on a number of occasions. He recently posted a couple of songs from their latest album and although I enjoyed them I thought I would go a bit further back in time as part of my exploration.

So I got myself a copy of  their 2015 album All Your Favorite Bands on the HUB label.I wasn't picking up the Laurel Canyon vibe off this one but nevertheless it was a very pleasant listen.
I suspect that my plundering of their back catalogue has only just begun.


  1. Somewhere Along The Way sounded perfectly pleasant - which sounds like I'm damning it with faint praise but actually it was.........perfectly pleasant. It was hearing the 2nd track though that made me wonder if I could take a whole album of similar stuff. Did get a Jackson Browne vibe for the singer's voice though which is a good thing.

  2. I suppose perfectly pleasant is better than quite nice!
