Bullets - Bob Schneider

Legbamel Not-Pop

Have you ever heard an artist for the first time and immediately felt “comfortable” with their sound? Such was the case for me today with Bob Schneider. I don’t remember ever having heard of him before, but I heard Bullets on the radio and, as soon as I could get my hands on a computer, looked up the song and the artist. You can listen to his newest (2004) album, "When the Sun Breaks Down on the Moon", at his website, and some of his older stuff can be found at Grooveshark, through the player below.

It turned out that Bullets is not typical of Bob Schneider’s sound. It’s a funky little groove with lyrics that make you wonder what in the world he’s singing about. Bullets even has a horn section! But Schneider’s other songs showcase his voice and guitar playing. It was that voice that I loved, especially on Metal and Steel and his rendition of If I Only Had a Brain. If you have a chance, check out some of his other songs, and let me know what you think.

    Yes, he's the former love slave of Sandra Bullock, I think. I have one record someplace that's okay if you like that sort of thing. You might like Greg Trooper if you like him.

    Most of his stuff is a bit mellow for me, but I really do like his voice. I'll have to check out Greg Trooper. Thanks for the recommendation!
