Lucy Dacus – No Burden (album review)

July 5, 2016

I hadn’t heard of Lucy Dacus until last week but now I’ve listened to No Burden so many times, that she may file a restraining order against me. I haven’t been this blown away by a female artist since hearing Avant Gardener by Courtney Barnett. And maybe that’s I was so eager to hear Barnett [...]

The Low Anthem – Eyeland (album review)

June 27, 2016

It’s been five long years since The Low Anthem blew our doors off with Smart Flesh . It was one of our favorites albums this year and like their prior efforts, has held up very well. It also led to this stellar session later that year. Since that time, Mat and Jocie left the band, [...]

DBT announce American Band – 9/30/16

June 24, 2016

Photo by Danny Clinch DBT is back with their 11th album to celebrate their 20th year together. I thought their last effort, English Oceans was their best in a while and based on the first track, Surrender Under Protest, the boys are on the incline. As I commented to a buddy, they sound angry and [...]

Steve Gunn – Eyes On The Lines (album review)

June 23, 2016

Steve Gunn is one of the best guitarists I’ve had the pleasure to see play live. I’ve always found his music so easy to get lost in and daydream to places far and beyond where I sat. So it seems perfect that his third effort as a full-out singer/songwriter delves into exploration and experiencing your [...]

Natural Child announce Okey Dokey – 9/16/16

June 21, 2016

Things I love about Natural Child. 1) Some people call them Natty C. 2) I love that the cover of their new album really invokes what it feels like when listening to a Natty C album. 3) They play rock n roll in the least pretentious manner possible. 4) They put on a ripping live [...]

Margaret Glaspy – Emotions and Math [album review]

June 20, 2016

Emotions and Math is my favorite title of an album in 2016. Two rather simple words that you use on an everyday basis, but they rarely ever cross paths. In Glaspy’s bio, she elaborated on how she learned during the making of the album, everybody needs to be combine the analytical while listening to your [...]

Moon Bros. to release These Stars on 7/8/16

June 17, 2016

I am unabashed in my enjoyment of Ryley Walker’s music. I think Walker’s music is pretty swell so when I got a PR email not only comparing the artist to Walker, but informing me that he was roommates with Walker; well let’s just say I was intrigued a wee bit. Then I saw the name [...]

Eli Paperboy Reed – My Way Home (album review)

June 15, 2016

Cut free from the major labels, Eli Paperboy Reed makes some music that matters. You see, Reed had a release on Warner Bros that sounded like Adam Levine & Blake Shelton got a hold of him. I honestly can’t make it through a song of the album. As that album was getting ready to hit [...]
