Lanie Flowers – Live in NYC

Lanie Flowers – Live in NYC

Who doesn’t like Singer-Songwriter music? Who doesn’t like a good live album? I’d all hands go up in the air. I mean, while Singer-Songwriter, which by the way kind of emerged in the late 60’s and 70’s with the arrival of artists like Bob Dylan, Cat Stevens, Elton John, Jim Croce and Billy Joel...

Heart, Heart and Friends – Home for the Holidays

Heart, Heart and Friends – Home for the Holidays

Heart is without a doubt one of the most successful bands in rock ‘n’ roll music history. The Wilson sisters have cemented a name for themselves in an industry that, as a general consensus, is perceived by many to be an all-boys club. By the time Heart’s debut album “Dreamboat Annie” was released in...

Strength and Kindness – “Somebody’ Else’s Nightmare” (2014)

Strength and Kindness is a Jazz Project based out of San Francisco. This latest CD entitled ““Somebody’ Else’s Nightmare” (2014) is a powerful and eclectic album tells the story of a gifted player/composer with beautiful melodies, a smooth playing style, that is emotional and at times very refined sonic feel. I am talking about...

Ashley Rivera, Danger Dreaming

Ashley Rivera, Danger Dreaming

Ashley Rivera is a singer/songwriter/vocalist from Georgia who just released their latest CD entitled “Danger Dreaming.’ This impressive release is an original blender of sound mixing Adelle, Vanessa Carlton, Lisa Loeb, Paula Cole, Beth Orton, Delta Rae and The Swell Season. Visually I must admit she bares a similar resemblance to some of the...

The Satisfactors, The Satisfactors

The Satisfactors, The Satisfactors

The Satisfactors are balls to the wall rock and roll. Everything they do taps into the spirit of early classic rock. With a defiant, party attitude to their songs their entire album is pure fun. Lyrically the songs explore the grimy side of rock, from parties to escaping bad situations. None of the songs...

Universal You, Perfect EP

Universal You, Perfect EP

Universal You’s “Perfect EP” is pop perfection. Bursting with energy the EP virtually demands to be played loud. That way every particular nuance of the songs shines through: from the strong vocals to the infectious melodies, “Perfect EP” is exactly how pop music should be. In fact the vocals are the heart of the...

Vinyl Floor, Vaudeville

Vinyl Floor, Vaudeville

“Vinyl Floor is a 3-piece rockband which hails from Copenhagen, Denmark. The band was formed in 2007 and consists of the two brothers Thomas Charlie Pedersen and Daniel Pedersen and the longtime friend and colleague Rasmus Bruun. It’s always a breath of fresh air to hear a new and exciting band that’s not afraid...

Jason Masi, Life is Wonderful

Jason Masi, Life is Wonderful

Let’s be honest for just a second shall we. I get a lot of albums sent my way for review and I mean a lot. Most of them don’t do anything for me. They don’t always get happily placed in the CD player, but the ones that do usually get a three song stay...

Sarantos, “Let’s Call It Love”

Sarantos, “Let’s Call It Love”

Sarantos succeeds with beauty on “Let’s Call It Love”. The style recalls that of dimly lit Bossa Nova. Luxurious and rich the sound is pristine. Jazz-influenced the vocals are reminiscent of Arto Lindsay’s graceful singing. By letting these many elements play off of each other Sarantos is able to create an atmospheric, softly sung...

Charley and Jesi, With Love

Charley and Jesi, With Love

In our modern age of Rap synths and autotune it can be difficult to find the top seeds among the harvest. What makes masters The White Stripes, The Lumineers and Two Door Cinema Club so sought after? Sure they sound good, they look great, the feel is good. But above that they got something...

Bobby Livingston, High & Away

Bobby Livingston, High & Away

Bobby Livingston’s “High & Away” displays a keen sense of storytelling. These songs play like chapters in a life. With each one representative of another phase of life they come together quite nicely to form a fully formed individual. Observations are astute. Here the band proves to be of the utmost importance helping to...

Neil Thomas, Devadatta

Neil Thomas, Devadatta

‘Devadatta’ is the follow up album to 2010’s ‘A Century of Lullabies’. Much like it’s predecessor, it’s another concept album (with more than a nod to the progressive rock genre) mixing stark imagery, social commentary and humanist philosophy to create a tapestry of vivid soul-searching and storytelling. There is immensely detailed substance to this...

Patrick Ames, Oakville Ontology

Patrick Ames, Oakville Ontology

Patrick Ames sings directly from the heart. “Oakville Ontology” possesses a pure spirit. The songs are deeply felt. Ruminating on loss while looking for hope, the songs offer moments of quiet reflection. Arrangements are simple and effective. With a low key approach these are songs that have been worked on many times until they...

Heart & Soul Radio, thieves

Heart & Soul Radio, thieves

Heart & Soul Radio “thieves” is an indomitable force. Bursting forth with great energy it is infinitely optimistic. Elements of it hark back to the halcyon days of alternative rock movement: of Dashboard Confessional, 30 Seconds to Mars, even Blink 182. Yes their songs are unforgettable. The choruses invite the listener to sing along....

Astrobleed, Astrobleed

Astrobleed, Astrobleed

A lot of rock bands forget the debt they owe the blues. Astrobleed is not one of those bands. Barreling through with powerful pieces that display true grit and soul, Astrobleed shows that it can say more without saying a word. Instrumental rock rarely sounds this unrestrained. The album virtually begs to be played...

Joseph Eid Releases “Human”

Joseph Eid Releases “Human”

Joseph Eid composes in an eclectic style borrowing from Folk-Pop music, combined with an Alt-Rock aesthetic. His lyrics share a black humor/self-deprecating sensibility. He writes of the mundane and the complex, and probably doesn’t understand everything but questions what he already knows. On this his latest entitled “Human” it seems to captures the spirit...

Buffalo Huddleston Band, Sunrise

Buffalo Huddleston Band, Sunrise

Buffalo Huddleston Band’s “Sunrise” is a tapestry of sound effortlessly weaving together hip-hop, reggae, folk, and classical into a colorful whole. “Sunrise” Tasteful and refined they are a unique beast in the musical kingdom. No other band quite sounds like Buffalo Huddleston. Their vision is entirely their own. With a sound that remains playful...

ARJUN, Core (2014)

ARJUN, the three-piece instrumental band from New York, has been trailblazing their own hybrid of rock and improvisational jazz since 2003.

Jude Gwynaire, New York Ghosts

Jude Gwynaire, New York Ghosts

Jude Gwynaire’s music is other worldly, fascinating, engaging, challenging, and altogether mysterious. Time to get lost in space… Track URL: http://www.cdbaby.com/cd/judegwynaire67 On ‘New York Ghosts’, Jude Gwynaire has created a sublime soundscape which is peppered with infectious drum beats, nervous sounding guitar riffs, and sliced up vocal samples that create a strange mixture of...

Solveig & Stevie, Fire and Other Playthings

Solveig & Stevie, Fire and Other Playthings

Solveig & Stevie’s “Fire and Other Playthings” harks back to a more innocent time in pop music. With a mellow sound they are able to accomplish quite a bit from the playful to the dramatic. The songs display Solveig’s power as a singer as well as Stevie’s adept restrained playing. A clear love of...

Sarah Donner, That is a Pegasus

Sarah Donner, That is a Pegasus

  It’s funny how music can change. It’s so malleable; you could hear it in one setting and hate it, vowing to never again let such filth invade your eardrums again. I’m referring to mainly pop by the way. Then, you could hear it at a different time, in a different situation, a different...

My Silent Bravery, Diamond from Coal

My Silent Bravery, Diamond from Coal

“Diamond from Coal” is an album full of hope. The sound shines with cautious optimism about the future. Vocals are earnest. At times the songs embody the joy of “The Polyphonic Spree” with its giddy sensibilities. Synthesizers are prominently displayed throughout the album helping to emphasize the gleeful nature of the work. The many...

Monique Angele, Self Titled

Monique Angele, Self Titled

Monique Angele is a unique emerging singer-songwriter from Toronto, Canada. Her self-titled debut EP is a combined style of classical and pop, officially naming it “divine pop.” Her versatile style portrays pianistic finesse and soaring vocals. Today I am listening to her debut self-titled EP released in 2014. This is such a complex, amazing...

Rainstick Cowbell, Hand over the Heart

Rainstick Cowbell, Hand over the Heart

Rainstick Cowbell (Scott Arbogast) in an interesting Slop Folk artist based out of Portland, OR. As I gave this, his fourth release to date a right and proper listen I have to agree with the slop folk comments – but it also has remnants of classic Psychedelic Rock. I’m a huge fan of Psychedelic...

Rachel Lynn Sebastian, Raven Heart

Rachel Lynn Sebastian, Raven Heart

After six arduous weeks of recording, the collaborators were met with a major setback: All twelve “Raven Heart” songs needed to be remixed and re-mastered. The problem was that Rachel Lynn had already scheduled a six-month U.S. tour to promote the album that would not be rescheduled. The decision was made: Cori Jacobs (Master...

Love Jupiter, 1967

Love Jupiter, 1967

Over the years we’ve seen rock, pop, and even hard rock slowly erode into over-commercialized, corporate puppet shows providing music that is extremely sing songy, predictable, popish and highly corporate. I hereby call this new breed of music “Poser Rock” and I want to personally thank all the corporate giants for successfully transforming “Sex...
