O’Death – Out Of Hands We Go [album review]

October 22, 2014

One day I was running car pools and I had O’Death playing in the car. A few minutes into the ride, one of the kids asked who I was listening to? Upon hearing my response and listening to a few tracks, I was asked, “why do I listen to this music? It seems real sad.” [...]

Elliott BROOD – Work and Love [album review]

October 21, 2014

October 16, 2014

I had totally forgotten about Robert Plant’s new album until seeing him on the Colbert Report last week. The interview was fantastic as Colbert & Plant bantered back and forth – two masters at play; including Plant handing Colbert a joint.

Minor Characters, Live Session #124

October 14, 2014

I first learned about Minor Characters through friend and photographer, Chris Hershman, who’s talent behind the camera brought some of my favorite HearYa sessions to your eyes.
