Albums

Devon Allman | Turquoise | Review

Let's get it out of the way -- yes, we're talking about Gregg Allman's son. And there it is, think what you will.

Not that (Devon) Allman wants to make his career as his father’s lad. In the liner notes for his debut album, Turquoise, the artist’s folks are clearing trying to distance the kid (relatively speaking) from his old man: (Devon) grew up… surrounded by a humble life away from the rock and roll circus that was his father’s band. We get the point.

Wooden HEZ | Children's Parade | Review

I have to say I was extremely impressed with the opening 3 tracks "Take Them There”, “Radio Man” and the title track. They made quite the first impression with me. Each one possessed my full unadulterated attention. To be honest: I expected cheesy Singer Songwriter Pop cut from the same cloth as say a Jason Mraz or Rob Thomas. Not that there’s anything wrong with Jason Mraz or Rob Thomas, I just want to hear something new and different and something that will shake the tree a bit. Really I’m up for anything at this point. What I discovered blew me out of my chair.

All Trap Music Minimix / Compilation from AEI Media | Review

Like many genres of electronic music these days, trap music is a slurry of contemporary genres. Grime, dirrty south, dubstep, and a healthy dose of frenetic hi-hats have made trap music the music play in clubs. Go to any sleazy late-night bar, and interspersed with the Top 40 hits, you’ll find a healthy dose of trap music to amp up the people on the dance floor.

Dr. Wippit | An Anthology of Sorts | Review

Chicago based Dr. Wippit just released his latest release: An Anthology of Sorts in 2012.  An Anthology of Sorts” is one release that certainly doesn’t disappoint. This is one artist that brings to the table effective songwriting via a highly passionate musical delivery. This meshed with a one in a million Alternative Urban Rock sound and songwriting make for an effective combination. Dr. Wippit even touches on Jam Band, and Melodic Indie Pop-Rock.

Tame Impala | Lonerism | Review

For a music critic, four months after an album release isn’t a third of a year, it’s an epoch. The rule has always been to review the album as soon as it’s released, or at least in the first week or two after release if you cannot acquire a prerelease copy. Anything after that is a nostalgic trip down memory lane. But here we are. Tame Impala’s Lonerism was released on October 9th, 2012. This review is going up in February. But the album is too good to ignore.

Winslow | Left of the Right Direction | New Music Review

Introducing Winslow, an original blend of soulful pop rock complete with underlying elements of jazz and funk that will have you laughing, crying, and moving to the beat. Hailing from Cleveland, Ohio, this inspiring 6-piece group has a rich and cultured history when it comes to studying and performing music.

Jeremy Dion | Golden Some Day | Review

Golden Some Day is Jeremy Dion’s latest release and has much to commend it. Admittedly, there is a whole lot of variety to these arrangements and performances. First: Dion and his impressive band delivers rock solid playing like a well oiled machine. This is testament to hundreds of hours of rehearsal time no doubt. Second: Dion himself possesses a voice and an impassioned writing style that hits the mark remarkably well within the folk-pop music arena. He has the attributes required of an effective singer/songwriter.

Jim James | Regions of Light and Sound of God | Review

Regions of Light and Sound of God, the first album straight from the effervescent mind of Jim James, will be released on February 5. As a true headphone heretic, this project adds another dimension to James’s already genre bending discography which includes: My Morning Jacket, Monsters of Folk, and Yim Yames. The nine track LP is a powerful portrayal of how it feels to fall into darkness.

White Rhino | The Journey | Review

Certainly as time goes by, many genres have changed or rather have combined to create something new and original. A great example can be seen in the new album by New York's White Rhino.

Winter Bisco Inferno Takes Colorado by Storm Part 1

The Disco Biscuits love Colorado! And how can I blame them? I come from Philadelphia just like they do and fled the East for the happy humble vibe of Colorado. There is something very special about this area, especially regarding music. I am not sure if it is the natural beauty, the thin air, or generally just the kindness of the like-minded people that get attracted here from all over the world.
