Pretty & Nice – Golden Rules for Golden People (2013)

Posted by on May 18, 2013 with No Commentsas

On Golden Rules for Golden People, Pretty & Nice preserve the fizz of youth while finding a way to grow up a little. Rather than slow down, they’ve incorporated a wider range of sounds. The band’s previous efforts excelled by working within a very specific framework, which fell somewhere between the new wave of Elvis Costello’s first […]

Stephen Malkmus & Jicks – Real Emotional Trash (2008)

Posted by on May 18, 2013 with No Commentsas

Stephen Malkmus’ solo career seems to be settling into a pattern of alternating between skewed, spiky pop albums bearing his lone credit and long, languid collections of jams with the Jicks — as 2005’s Face the Truth belonged to the former category and its 2008 follow-up, Real Emotional Trash, fits neatly into the latter. That’s […]

Surrogate – Post​-​Heroic (2013)

Posted by on May 15, 2013 with No Commentsas

For their 4th studio record, Post-Heroic, Surrogate took their newfound self-sufficiency to new levels, moving into a dilapidated studio deep in the heart of their hometown’s college ghetto for two years of writing, recording, drinking cheap beer and taking their sweet ass time. Slimmed down to a four-piece, Post Heroic found all four members taking […]

Throughout Randall Bramblett’s long, storied career as a sideman and as a solo artist, he has doggedly mined the sources of his earliest inspirations — soul, R&B, blues, and roots rock — for the lessons they teach about creative expression. As a result, his albums have always moved a little deeper, a little wider, and […]

Tyler Bryant & The Shakedown – Wild Child (2013)

Posted by on May 13, 2013 with No Commentsas

Introduced to the world in rock photography documentary Rock Prophecies, Honey Grove, Tex.-bred blues guitarist Tyler Bryant has been turning heads with his impeccable skills for the better part of five years. In concert, Bryant is a scorcher of an axe man and, at 21, he puts men thrice his age with entire careers under […]

Bob Dylan – Blonde on Blonde (1966, MFSL 2013)

Posted by on May 13, 2013 with No Commentsas

The story of Blonde on Blonde is almost as compelling as the music within. Dylan, frustrated with how initial attempts fared in New York, relocating to Tennessee and pairing with Nashville’s top session players as well as members of what would become the Band, feverishly chasing perfectionism while also arriving at an on-the-fly feel that […]

Tom Ovans – Tombstone Boys, Graveyard Girls (2003)

Posted by on May 11, 2013 with No Commentsas

“Tombstone Boys, Graveyard Girls,” is Tom Ovans’ ninth album and third for Floating World records. His strongest and most thought-provoking work to date, the album has a tenacious grip on the good and the bad of the world and a poet’s view of its beauty and destruction. Musically the album finds an artist working on […]

Natalie Maines – Mother (2013)

Posted by on May 11, 2013 with No Commentsas

After 3 years of silence, it’s Maines’ turn. Mother was co-produced with Ben Harper; he and his band back her on a series of generally polished rock & roll covers and originals. This is a singer’s record, not a songwriter’s. Maines has made no secret of her preference for rock and R&B over country, and […]

David Byrne and Brian Eno – Everything That Happens Will Happen Today (2008)

Posted by on May 10, 2013 with No Commentsas

The musical reunion between David Byrne and Brian Eno comes with a fair amount of baggage. After all, they produced some of the greatest records in rock history: the trio of Talking Heads records that Eno worked on, culminating in Remain in Light, and followed by the duo’s My Life in the Bush of Ghosts, […]

Stephen Stills ‎– Stills (1975)

Posted by on May 7, 2013 with No Commentsas

A nother change of partners, this time inheriting part of former Manassas-mate Chris Hillman’s backing band with new members Donnie Dacus, Russell Kunkle, and Leland Sklar. Stills (the album) is mellow country-rock with some bittersweet guitar pickin’, high harmonies and an occasional flash of teeth. New guitarist Dacus is given a good share of the […]

Cari Lee And The Contenders – Scorched (2005)

Posted by on May 7, 2013 with No Commentsas

“Scorched” is certainly old-school, but blasts barrelhouse piano & great boogie-woogie. The opener “I Think About You” rocks with T Jarrod Banta pounding the ivories and Cari crooning that she gets a thrill. Dan Torosian’s saxophone storms like a classic 50s rock cyclone and ignites a driving beat, “You know the kind of loving that […]

Steely Dan – Can’t Buy A Thrill (1972)

Walter Becker and Donald Fagen were remarkable craftsmen from the start, as Steely Dan’s debut, Can’t Buy a Thrill, illustrates. Each song is tightly constructed, with interlocking chords and gracefully interwoven melodies, buoyed by clever, cryptic lyrics. All of these are hallmarks of Steely Dan’s signature sound, but what is most remarkable about the record […]
