October 2014 Album Picks
“Call it doom if you like. After missing their Triple Rock show a couple of weeks ago, I’ve been kicking myself, and decided that picking up their newest album was the only thing I could do. ”
“What can I possibly say about this artist that’s fresh? This album snuck under the radar as a legendary performance often bootlegged in the past, so I grabbed it.”
“I heard an NPR interview with Robert Plant regarding this new album, among other things, which piqued my curiosity. Not so much because of the mix of musical styles here, which ought to be interesting, but because I’ve never delved into Robert Plant’s solo work.
September 2014 Album Reviews
“Sadly, I just wasn’t thrilled with this hiatus-ending LP from indie stars Spoon. It comes out swinging with “The Rent I Pay”, a slightly ragged half-beat stomper that must be as good of a live set opener as it is a warm-up track for an otherwise chilled album. ”
“The songs are varied plenty but they all carry this big vibe, surely due to the number of people and instruments used. That sound is The New Pornogrophers’ style, but it seems bigger and more intense than Together.”
“What can I say about Dance With The Dead? Other than they make some really fun music! Near Dark is a perfect blend of Retro, Electro, Horror and Rock. The album as a whole is pretty upbeat. There isn’t a lot of dark synth stuff going on, which is fine and kind of refreshing. ”
