True Life: I can’t stop swooning over “My Man”, the latest from LA’s very own Valley Queen. At this point, the term swoon is merely an understatement (my appreciation for this song has morphed into an obsession by now.) If there’s going to be one song that you take the time to listen from beginning to end today, please let it be this one. “My Man” could’ve easily been a winner if capped at the 3 minute mark, but no – it goes above and beyond to ultimately stand as one of the best songs I’ve heard in 2016. Watch the video for this gem below, and if you didn’t already know – the band currently has a residency at the Bootleg Theater in LA for the month of July, so if you’re reading this and live in the area – DON’T MISS OUT! Also, be sure to check out Valley Band’s NPR Tiny Desk Session that features the band playing 3 new *(and unreleased) songs. One of the tracks “In My Place” will be released along with “High Expectations” as a single due out Aug. 12 (via Canvascamp)

FYI: The video for “My Man” was directed by Mitch deQuilettes and Megan McIsaac.
