Mr. Sun – The People Need Light (2015)

Posted by on August 20, 2015 with No Commentsas

Sometimes it feels like string bands are a dime a dozen, that any ol’ group of pickers comes together under a single name and has a go at it. And maybe that’s true. But, other times, not just any ol’ group of pickers comes together under a single name and has a go at it. That would certainly be the case with Mr. Sun which features Darol Anger on fiddle, Grant Gordy on guitar, Joe Walsh on mandolin, and Ethan Jodziewicz on bass.As Anger puts it, Mr. Sun absolutely had to happen — really good people who like each other and are also brilliant, unique, and funny artists. That’s a prickly order.

The Fratellis – Eyes Wide, Tongue Tied [Deluxe Edition] (2015)

Posted by on August 20, 2015 with No Commentsas

The Scottish rock band returns from its 2009 hiatus with its fourth studio release produced by Tony Hoffer.‘Eyes Wide, Tongue Tied’ is the sound of freedom. It is the sound of a band at the peak of their powers.  An exhilarating trip; it’s as much flying as it is falling with style.  Listening to it; from the rush of album opener ‘Me And The Devil’ to the elegant landing of closing track ‘Moonshine’, it is obvious that The Fratellis are the embodiment of the maxim, “leap and the net will appear”.  This is an album that oozes confidence and verve.

The band always seemed too light and frothy to have any real staying power. But “Burning Bridges” is the Bon Jovi’s 13th studio album, although […]

Cleary projects a distinctive, whiskey and caffeine laced voice perfect for his hot sauce combination of jazz, funk, rhythm and blues and soul (as he sings on “Bringing Back the Home”) along with the occasional slower love song. He’s in fine fettle on his first studio album of original material in over a decade. Recorded […]
