David Olney – Eye of the Storm (1996)

Posted by on May 29, 2013 with No Commentsas

Every once in a very long while, songwriters come along who become regarded as classic. The rivers of their many influences flow clear and clean through their work, but what comes out is something wholly original. Their songs sound at once timeless and fresh, with shimmers and shades from many influences flowing seamlessly into something […]

Judee Sill’s debut album (as well as the debut of the Asylum label) heralded a major new talent in the airy, contemporary folk world of the early ’70s. The album employed the production skills of Sill’s ex-husband Bob Harris, as well as ex-Turtle, ex-Leaves Jim Pons, and Graham Nash (on the album’s sole single, “Jesus […]

Shannon McNally – North America Ghost Music (2011)

Posted by on May 28, 2013 with No Commentsas

Shannon McNally follows up her aesthetic and critical breakthrough, Geronimo, with a live record on Backporch. First off, the title is interesting in how it relates to the set itself. Basically, she’s reliving her own ghosts with five tunes from the aforementioned recording and two from her major-label debut, Jukebox Sparrows. In fact, she opens […]

Malcolm Middleton – Sleight of Heart (2008)

Posted by on May 28, 2013 with No Commentsas

Sleight of Heart’, which is the former Arab Strap guitarist’s fourth solo album, is, however, at least in some ways a very different work from ‘A Brighter Beat’. While ‘A Brighter Beat’ toyed with electronica and was a noisy pop record that tipped occasionally into psychobilly, ‘Sleight of Hand’, the sessions for which were recorded […]

Dudley Taft – Deep Deep Blue (2013)

Posted by on May 28, 2013 with No Commentsas

Dudley Taft has yet again proven his staple in today’s blues rock scene with his upcoming album, Deep Deep Blue. After several projects came and went, Taft formed a band under his own name in 2006.

Tim Lee 3 – Devil’s Rope (2013)

Posted by on May 27, 2013 with No Commentsas

All over the map. Literally and metaphorically, that s the phrase that might best describe Devil’s Rope, the newest release from Tim Lee 3 on Cool Dog Sound. Following in the tradition of their first two full-length recordings 2008 s good2b3 and 2010 s sprawling double-wide Raucous Americanus TL3 traveled to 3 studios in 3 […]

Michael Stanley – The Ride (2013)

Posted by on May 27, 2013 with No Commentsas

Before veteran rocker Michael Stanley released The Ride, his eighth album in ten years, he gave the heads-up that this would be a different sounding record. Sure enough, The Ride contains several pleasant surprises but all in all there is one thing that long time fans won’t be surprised to discover…that Stanley has once again created a […]

Rykarda Parasol – Our Hearts First Meet (2006)

Posted by on May 27, 2013 with No Commentsas

With vocals both unsettling and sublime, Rykarda Parasol beckons us to share her place overlooking the whistling, barren Texan plains at dusk in her promising debut release. Comparisons to PJ Harvey and Nick Cave are commonplace and inevitable, though Parasol lends a distinctly delicate quality to her weighty, blues-inspired compositions both lyrically and vocally. “Lullaby […]

Andrew Bird – Soldier On (2008)

Posted by on May 27, 2013 with No Commentsas

The most remarkable track on the EP is the one that kicks it off, though. “The Trees Were Mistaken” is something new for Bird, and really quite good. It takes the looping technique he’s perfected over the years to a new level, throwing blankets of sound over a programmed beat, with dabs of pizzicato violin […]

Cold Satellite – Cavalcade (2013)

Posted by on May 26, 2013 with No Commentsas

What a complex experience this is, modern poetry set in the back seat of a roaring rock ‘n’ roll muscle car. The effect, as Cavalcade unfolds, is at first very visceral and then deeply illuminating. Cold Satellite leader Jeffrey Foucault has given over the lyric writing to contemporary poet Lisa Olstein, whose latest collection Little […]

I See Hawks in L.A. – Mystery Drug (2013)

Posted by on May 26, 2013 with No Commentsas

On ‘Mystery Drug’ The Hawks explore the hyphen separating Alt. and Country, often lazily described as Americana. Their ability to anchor themselves in traditional musical forms while simultaneously exploring unexpected territories makes them different from the norm. The L.A. based band make every lyric and nuance count, mainly via Rob Waller’s trad-  country baritone which […]
