Albums

The Gypsy Sons | Whiskey and the Devil | Review

Hailing from Virginia, The Gypsy Sons' debut album Whiskey and the Devil is a thunderous declaration of intent from this new outfit. The ten song collection, released through Spectra Records on May 7, benefits from gritty production that captures the considerable crunch of the band's live sound while still providing the listener with a thoroughly professional product. This is not rock and roll intent on refashioning the wheel.

Jefferson | All the Love in the World | Review

Coming this May from Spectra Records, Australian four piece Jefferson's debut album All the Love in the World benefits from strong production. It surrounds the collection with a powerful modern sheen while retaining a breathing, organic sound. Geoff Rana's vocals remind me of a younger, Girlfriend-era Matthew Sweet's singing and the band demonstrates tremendous chemistry for an unit that has been playing together for three years.

Alan Evans | Merkaba | New Music Review

Soulive drummer and founder Alan Evans is a musical force to be reckoned with. More than 15 years as an integral member of the jazz-fusion group wasn’t enough for him.

David Bowie | The Next Day | Review

David Bowie is back. Just reading that sentence elicits squeals of glee from fans young and old. He didn’t have to make any new music, really. Bowie’s legacy has been sealed ever since the 70s, and any new music is just icing on the cake. After 2003’s Reality and a terrifying stage collapse in 2004, it looked like Bowie was done with music, but then he came back when we least expected it. We didn’t need this, but we got it anyway. We are so lucky.

New American Famers | 'Brand New Day' | Review

Paul Knowles and Nicole Storto keep it real as a banana peel, and whole heartedly encourage the listener to grow their own fruits and vegetables, with Brand New Day.  In their words; “The songs are about the human experience, putting a spotlight on those that are less fortunate, songs about having different viewpoints from the accepted norms when it comes to immigration, food, philosophy and materialism.

Southern Hospitality | Easy Livin' | New Music Review

An exciting March release to announce!

Southern Hospitality's debut album Easy Livin’ (Available March 12th) offers up Cajun spice and just about every other secret ingredient imaginable to craft a tasty, near perfect recipe of all things southern fried.

Locust | You'll Be Safe Forever | Review

For those out of the loop (myself included, prior to a brush-up via press release and some idle internet perusing), Locust originally left its mark in the nineties as the ambient solo venture of London's Mark Van Hoen.

Sarah Petrella | 'Summer' | Review

One can say that Sarah Petrella’s path to the release of her debut EP started from the moment she was born. She wrote her first song before the age of 10, and went on to immerse herself in musical theatre. Now, Sarah brings her lifelong passion for songwriting to the world via a three song EP, titled Summer.

Making Movies: A La Deriva | New Music Review

Good Panamanian acid-jazz-fusion by way of Kansas City can be hard to come by these days. Well, at least there’s Making Movies.

On the whole, the prog-Latino quartet’s self-released second album, A La Deriva, is strange South American psychedelia; in moments, it’s overwhelming or simple, radical or routine. Consistent? No. But there’s something distinctive enough about the record to warrant a listen.

decker. | 'Slider' | Review

A near-fatal car accident would set most bands back months, maybe years. Arizona-based trio decker. pulled through the experience and released their fourth album just six months later. The gritty folk-rock band is led by Brandon Decker, whose first album, Long Days, debuted in 2009. Four albums in four years may seem like a lot, but Decker has been piling up praise with every new release.
