here they are:
"Ain't No Man" by The Avett Brothers: People who know The Avett Brothers for primarily being a country-rock group may be in for quite a surprise when they hear this one! "Ain't No Man" is more funky than it is country. Not an acoustic guitar or banjo to be found anywhere in this song. Instead, this song is dominated by sleek, smooth bass riffs. In addition to being The Avetts' funkiest song so far, "Ain't No Man" is also their happiest sounding song!
"Better Man" by Leon Bridges: The only other song for this week is also a funky one, but neo-soul sensation Leon Bridges knows funk like the back of his hand! "Coming Home" and "Smooth Sailin'" have both become adult alt megahits and they both have a sound that hearkens back to the days of '60s soul music. "Better Man" follows in the footsteps of those two songs in terms of its sound. The central message of this song is a simple but powerful plea, in which Leon states that he "doesn't want much" and "just wants to be a better man". Leon, there's no need for you do any better. You're already plenty good sounding to me!
