The Everywheres – Slow Friends (2013)

Posted by on June 26, 2013 with No Commentsas

Slow Friends is an album you’d want to listen to while sitting on a lake front stoop mid summer, with a beer in one hand and a cigarette in the other, watching ants run around on asphalt. The bright rhythmic sections and hypnotizing layers of guitars could very well delay the start of winter and prolong […]

Van Morrison – Moondance (1970)

Posted by on June 26, 2013 with No Commentsas

The yang to Astral Weeks’ yin, the brilliant Moondance is every bit as much a classic as its predecessor; Van Morrison’s first commercially successful solo effort, it retains the previous album’s deeply spiritual thrust but transcends its bleak, cathartic intensity to instead explore themes of renewal and redemption. Light, soulful, and jazzy, Moondance opens with […]

Julian Cope – Revoltionary Suicide (2013)

Posted by on June 26, 2013 with No Commentsas

“Revolutionary Suicide,” was created by a Julian Cope title generator: he’s used both words before, repeatedly. But it’s actually borrowed from Huey P. Newton’s 1973 memoir, and Cope has some of the same aims: to force a broad reassessment of society as a system of repression. The title song finds Cope in excellent form, taking […]

Brother JT – The Svelteness of Boogietude (2013)

Posted by on June 25, 2013 with No Commentsas

The Svelteness of Boogietude is a typical of JT’s output in certain ways — rockers mixed with ballads, all of them crafted with causal elegance — but there are new elements here as well. In particular, there’s an attention to the legacy of later-period T. Rex, which results in tunes that kick total ass. Mr […]

Dee’s Alligator Records debut and first album in five years, On My Mind/In My Heart, a similar work of soul revivalism would be to pigeonhole it unfairly. Dee incorporates essential elements of doo-wop and R&B, along with Southern and Northern soul, across 11 tracks whose second-greatest triumph is that they are as diligently orchestrated and […]

Lurrie Bell – Blues in My Soul (2013)

Posted by on June 24, 2013 with No Comments

One of the greatest living Chicago blues guitarists, Lurrie Bell’s last two CDs have been about stretching him (successfully) to showcase the breadth as well as the magnitude of his art. However for this project he just wanted to get back to the solid foundation of Chicago-styled traditional guitar blues, done with his rare blend […]
