David Bowie | The Next Day | Review

Submitted by Jason Chiu on Thu, 03/14/2013 - 3:54 pm

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.

New American Famers | 'Brand New Day' | Review

Submitted by Stephen Boyd on Tue, 03/12/2013 - 6:35 pm

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.

Making Movies: A La Deriva | New Music Review

Submitted by John Mosley on Mon, 03/04/2013 - 4:21 pm

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.

decker. | 'Slider' | Review

Submitted by Rochelle Shipman on Sun, 03/03/2013 - 6:30 am

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.With the help of a Kickstarter campaign and some faithful fans, decker. released Slider on February 26.

Sterling Witt | 'Sterling Loves You' | Review

Submitted by Mindy McCall on Tue, 02/26/2013 - 3:35 pm

I always listen to the opening track extremely carefully. It’s the opening track the band or artists has selected to hit your ears first and foremost. The opening track "Perfect Girl” sets the stage rather well for this CD. It was a great intro piece that stuck in my head and had me eager for what was ahead. All in all the whole CD is brilliantly delivered with a powerful Acoustic Smokey Saloon Rock, guitar driven texture with song that at times can bite you in the ass and hit you hard with serious melodic staying power.

Sarah Kervin | Passing Through | Review

Submitted by Michael Rand on Fri, 02/22/2013 - 1:06 pm

Passing Through is one unique release that certainly doesn’t disappoint. This is one artist that brings to the table effective songwriting via a highly subjective musical delivery. This meshed with a one in a million Modern Jazz sound and effective visuals and vocals makes for a very effective combination. Sarah Kervin is just a breath away from Smooth Jazz or even Pop Jazz but he skillfully manages to never cross the line into either realm.
