Waylon Speed – Valance (2012)

Posted by on July 12, 2012 with No Commentsas

There’s something very familiar about this band’s sound, and it’s not just because they’ve been kicking around the Burlington scene — and other scenes while going out on tour — for a few years now.If you were in high school circa 1981, this is the sort of band whose hard-rockin’ logo you’d trace out on the back of your notebook. It was called Southern rock back in the day, and while Waylon Speed’s version is more twangy than head-bangy, it does smack of “been-there, heard-that” (how many songs about beer and cocaine do we need in the American Songbook?).Give ‘em credit for energy, though: Songs such as “Silver and Gold,” “Cherry Plane” and “Livin’” may just inspire you to make hook-em-horns hand gestures and bob your collective heads like three-dimensional versions of Beavis and Butthead.

Duke Special – Oh Pioneer (2012)

Posted by on July 12, 2012 with No Commentsas

“I don’t know enough people who stay up all night, who talk themselves in circles and never say they’re right,” sighs Belfast singer-songwriter Duke Special on “Stargazers of the World Unite,” his 10th album’s opening track and a song that expresses his longing for a social circle of Kerouac-like romantics, dreamers and firebrands. It’s a desire that serves as a mission statement for this heady, overwrought record on which the dreadlocks-sporting Duke — better known to his nearest and dearest as Peter Wilson — once again conjures up fierce, flamboyant pop magic from elements as disparate as vaudeville, baroque electro-pop and keening Celtic soul. In lesser hands, such conflicting constituent parts would only yield a musical dog’s dinner, but Wilson plucks alchemy from potential anarchy thanks to a seemingly endless reservoir of great tunes and melodies. His dexterous and nimble keyboard-driven pop evokes literate mavericks such as Marc Almond, the Divine Comedy and even Ben Folds, yet the soaring choruses of tracks like “Punch of a Friend” and “Nothing Shall Come Between Us” are as giddily infectious as Keane at their most chart-friendly. “I want the world to make some sense,” breathes Duke Special on the spectral “Lost Chord”: His own idiosyncratic musical universe is very much in order.
