The String Cheese Incident | Song In My Head | Review

Fans of The String Cheese Incident wondered if they would ever get a chance to hear anything new from the band after they decided to take an indefinite hiatus following their 2007 summer tour.  Thankfully, the band returned to the road in 2010 and have been performing brilliantly ever since.  With the group now in full swing, a handful of brand new SCI originals have been heard during their live shows, but none of them have been officially recorded…until now.

Ghost Owl | Say Goodbye To Finland | New Album Review

Ghost Owl's debut album "Say Goodbye to Finland" will be released on May 6th. The album as a whole is an experimental drift through futuristic soundscapes famed with uplifting electro-pop arrangements. This ten track LP contains the singles "Sky Yellow", "Idiot Kid" and "Velva 500". The one binding theme throughout these budding tracks is the prolific use of synthesizers; aimed to move the lamest of limbs.

Ghost Owl | Say Goodbye To Finland | New Music Review

Ghost Owl, from Athens, Georgia, blend an ethereal mix of unique electronica sounds, indie pop and psychedelic soundscapes to create a dream-like trance that’s both driving and hypnotic.

Gypsy Lumberjacks | Pulling Upon the Strap | New Music Review

Gypsy Lumberjacks are a Minneapolis based Americana band with a sound consisting of a mix of World Beat, Flamenco, Caribbean, Gypsy Jazz and Bluegrass. With such a range of influences, there is something for everyone to latch on to in the music. Known for never performing with a set list, Gypsy Lumberjacks prefer to rely on each other’s leads and changes. Their latest work entitled “Pulling Upon the Strap” was released in 2014 and I was blown away with what I heard.

The Raised by Wolves | Sadie Hawkins | New Music Review

The Raised By Wolves recently released the music video "Freddy Freaker" - a track from the band's debut album Sadie Hawkins (2013). As the band explains it, "The video is a surreal exploration of the inevitable and often dissonant evolution of friendships over time." The green triangle used in the video appears to represent the concept of how all relationships remain balanced over time. The bonds of friendships may strengthen or deteriorate, yet the amount of change is equal to amount of time explored.

Matthew Genovese | Chasing the Sun | New Music Review

There was a time when the singer/songwriter troubadour type of music seemed to be a dying breed. Then, somehow over the last couple decades it seems like there has been a resurgence of interest in just great songs, delivered with passion. That’s what this set really is. Sure, it has some range of musical style, but overall this is most like the great singer/songwriters of the 1970s, but with a modern sensibility.

John McLaughlin & The 4th Dimension | The Boston Record | Review

The biggest blessing that jazz music has brought to the world is it’s ability to tie different cultures, places, and musical ideas, all bound together by one common unity; love. Guitarist John McLaughlin, a pioneer of the jazz-fusion movement and continuation lets his music thrive in a state of flexibility that had lead him to brilliant collaborations with other craft masters worldwide.

Robby Hecht | New Music Review

Living up to its self title, Robby Hecht’s third album is chocked full of personal sentiment that’s immediately relatable, backed up by simple-sounding, perfectly timed acoustic melodies.

Hecht’s hazy sound draws a lot of James Taylor comparisons, and rightfully so. It hit my ear like a warm blanket with tracks that feel like reuniting with an old friend who lost touch. It’s the kind of music that will make you smile at sad thoughts.

Damon Fowler | Sounds Of Home | Review

Recently, I read an online article arguing the inevitable demise of rock music. The writer saw fit to place the blame upon a variety of conditions, from the public unfairly judging bands by their looks (As opposed to their music), to band classifications and whether or not they deserve to be considered “classic”, to the topic of sexism in music, stating that it should be more appealing to the “fairer sex”.

Hard Working Americans | New Music Review

Picking yourself up and dusting yourself off when you fall or continuing to keep getting it when times get hard, is the gist of this album from Todd Snider’s newly formed band the Hard Working Americans. Whether it is the accomplished musicians in the Hard Working Americans or the lyrics, you can find a pinch of many great bands within this group. A little Neil Young. Check. A little Black Crowes. Check. A little Arlo Guthrie. Check.
