Kevin Durr – Songbird

Kevin Durr – Songbird

While it is true many feel the music industry is in disarray, it’s always a breath of fresh air to hear a new band or artist that’s not afraid to take chances with their musical expression. With Chicago based Kevin Durr’s latest musical offering “Songbird” it’s clear to me he has surpassed what many...

Ralph Burg – Time to Sing

Ralph Burg – Time to Sing

Ralph Burg’s “Time to Sing” is pure bliss. With a dreamy sample that weaves in and out of perception the song takes on a laid-back vibe. This is nicely matched by Ralph Burg’s flow. Lyrically the song focuses on growing up with others. A lot of life’s many paths rests upon the past and...

The Sweet Lips – From out of Nowhere

The Sweet Lips – From out of Nowhere

It’s easy to know how to categorize a band like The Sweet Lips. This Aussies 3 member band just released “Out of Nowhere.” This band seems to deliver an uncharacteristic fusion of hard, thrashy guitars and unique songwriting techniques, with a limber rhythm section that keeps the music loose yet powerful. Band members: Daxton...

Mark Gothard – Fly the Coop

Mark Gothard – Fly the Coop

From Southern California comes Alternative Singer/Songwriter Mark Gothard who just released his latest 13 Track CD “Fly the Coop” in 2014. Many of you are already aware how fickle this industry is. Right from the start it might be easy to just categorize Gothard as some straight ahead old school folk-country-esque rocker toting a...

Michael Tracy – Gonna’ Smile

Michael Tracy – Gonna’ Smile

I’ve been listening to Michael Tracy for a few years now and I’ll tell you why, because he’s good, plain and simple. He really didn’t even know he had this all in him, not too long ago, and that helps all the more as an interesting back story to this Seattle native’s life, who...

Jumpship Astronaut – Humans

Jumpship Astronaut – Humans

Jumpship Astronaut’s “Humans” embodies the perfect mixture of rock and dance. Strong-willed the songs blast forward with great energy. Elements of their work are reminiscent of much of DFA’s immense catalog in particular the hyperactive work of Holy Ghost! Synthesizers sparkle with catchy melodies. Able to embrace their pop sensibilities these are pieces that...

Df3 – “Tell Me”

Df3 – “Tell Me”

Df3’s “Tell Me” embodies dance pop at its most optimistic. Akin to Röyksopp at his most ebullient the piece absolutely bubbles with well-crafted hooks and satisfying pieces. Singing through a series of filters the song tries to capture the emotion that transmits over such long distances. Clearly this is reflected in the song’s sound...

Piqued Jacks – Climb Like Ivy Does

Piqued Jacks – Climb Like Ivy Does

Piqued Jacks “Climb Like Ivy Does” is full of heart. Songs are full of Byzantine twists and turns. The sound is a rich tapestry merging elements of psychedelic, dream pop, classical, and even elements of post-rock. Vocals rip through the distortion to make themselves heard. Lots of textures are thrown together with a nice...

Dave Bailin & The Bailouts

Dave Bailin & The Bailouts

How shall I sum up the sound of Dave Bailin & the Bailouts for you? How about kind of ground breaking? While actually sounding like he’s not so over produced like some of the more modern sounding artists out there like John Maher, Bailin manages to capture a sound that is old yet surprisingly...

J. R. Holmes – The Truth

J. R. Holmes is one of a select few musicians moving the R & B sound into the future. “The Truth” possesses a beautiful lush sound that elegantly displays J.R. Holmes’s classical and jazz training.

Glen Conway Naylor – A Paris August Moon

Glen Conway Naylor – A Paris August Moon

“A Paris August Moon” reveals a warped jazz sensibility that recalls the best of Angelo Badalamenti’s work. With a night vibe to it there is a darkness that informs much of the song. From the vocals to the shadowy instruments things hide in the background. The song is full of love, the kind of...

C-Rod – The Devil Is Real

C-Rod – The Devil Is Real

First thing that hit me off C-Rod’s latest record, The Devil Is Real, was the incredible beats he had found throughout this mix. C-rod himself has a wicked flow…almost sounds like he would have fit in with the Onyx crew from back in the serious-rap heyday. After the intro drops, he launches into hard-tales...

Arid Garden – Arid Garden

Arid Garden – Arid Garden

Big fan of these five songs on this new EP from Arid Garden, let me say that right from the get-go. This is a highly ambitious band bringing a form of progressive jazz right to the top of my playlist right now. There’s a complete wealth of ideas within each song and within this...

Liv Margaret – Spinning

Liv Margaret – Spinning

Liv Margaret’s voice is clear and distinctive on “Spinning”. Full of peppy energy “Spinning” virtually bursts at the seams. The giddy sensibility of the songs is obvious. Additionally the arrangements flow perfectly with Liv Margaret’s strong voice at the center. By focusing on a bouncy pop sensibility the songs work together to create a...

Saints Eleven – I Told You

Saints Eleven – I Told You

Well…if there’s definitely one thing I can tell you, it’s that the album you’re about to hear about from Saints Eleven is so true to the rock-country music genre – the REAL one, not the modern-pop version; so genuine and authentically played I can all but guarantee this would drive many of our rock-metal...

Joe DeVita – Liquid Slumber

Joe DeVita – Liquid Slumber

It’s not too often you’ll find me speechless not quite knowing how to describe what I’m hearing…forgive me if I stumble a bit here in this review for Joe DeVita’s latest album, Liquid Slumber… It starts with beautiful, haunting guitar work that literally gave me chills. From there…it’s a series of interesting choices, some...

Septimius The Great – “Who’s The Sexiest (Remix)”

Septimius The Great – “Who’s The Sexiest (Remix)”

Septimius The Great adds an additional pulse of power on “Who’s The Sexiest”. By letting the song feel a little unhinged complete with nice electro touches Septimius The Great add a bit of wildness to the proceedings. Throughout the track the song at times feels like it simply wants to suddenly swell in power...

The Grave Jinglers – Reign Of The West

The Grave Jinglers – Reign Of The West

Hard not to appreciate good songwriting like this. Even though I’d probably consider this just outside of my ‘normal’ genres of choice, there’s a ton of reasons I found to crossover to The Grave Jinglers and give them some ear-time for their latest album Reign Of The West. An extremely rewarding choice; this blend...

Seconds Before Landing – Seconds Before Landing 2

Seconds Before Landing – Seconds Before Landing 2

Progressive music project Seconds Before Landing headed up by John Crispino seems to making all the right moves. Make no mistake about it: he’s becoming a household name around some Progressive Rock blogs I’ve been reading. This latest release entitled Seconds Before Landing 2 includes a few impressive names you may have heard before....

Mind the Journey – Mind the Journey EP

Mind the Journey – Mind the Journey EP

Mind the Journey explore the playful side of psychedelic music. With lyrics akin to Mayo Thompson at his most surreal and arrangements that recall Ariel Pink at his best, “Mind the Journey EP” is a truly wonderful journey. The collection works best when taken together for each piece comes together to create a unified...

Absoloot – Banksters

Absoloot – Banksters

This might be some of the most fun I’ve had in listening to social commentary coming back over the mic combined with the beats coming out of these speakers. I’m pretty much guaranteed to enjoy music that has a message buried in there somewhere, but rarely do the sounds that come along with it...

Tony Levitas – Black Sky Blanket

Tony Levitas – Black Sky Blanket

Tony Levitas is in a jovial mood throughout “Black Sky Blanket”. Playing the songs through a nostalgic filter the songs possess a keen sense of warmth. By keeping the pieces relatively low key Tony Levitas explores the quieter impulses in life. Day-dreamlike in tone the pieces are well-crafted pieces of art. Lyrically the songs...
