Many songs are just phrases repeated over and over again.

 

Titus Andronicus | The Monitor (XL)

| Print |

Written by John Shepherd Tuesday, 09 March 2010 16:48

The Monitor is without question the work of a maturing band.

   

Past Lives | Tapestry Of Webs (Suicide Squeeze)

| Print |

Written by Joe Witthaus Tuesday, 09 March 2010 16:29

Spot-on guitars and almost addictive solos that seem to beckon for a second listen also mesh will with the best parts of Past Lives.

 

The Constellations | Southern Gothic (Virgin)

| Print |

Written by Brett Berliner Tuesday, 09 March 2010 16:03

Even with a lot of vulgar lyrics, it never sounds too off putting because everything here is really catchy.

   

Murder By Death | Good Morning, Magpie (Vagrant)

Each indivdual song is its own tableau of drunken regret, hopeful longing, and bittersweet realization.

 

Sound Tribe Sector 9 (STS9) | 3.19.10 & 3.20.10

| Print |

Written by Corey Woodruff Friday, 05 March 2010 18:37

The conversations between sessions were often about intrigue and espionage so that vibe seeped into the record a bit.

   

Black Gold | Sounds About Right

| Print |

Written by Laura Hamlett Wednesday, 03 March 2010 23:45

I think that the greatest lesson is really just how to maintain a relationship and how to keep the above point alive in a healthy way so you can really get down to business and make some music.

 

Magnetic Fields | A Study in Opposites

| Print |

Written by Chris Sewell Wednesday, 03 March 2010 23:20

I hate playing live, and I particularly hate touring.

   

Gooding | The Return (S3)

| Print |

Written by Laura Hamlett Friday, 26 February 2010 23:35

“No more talk, no more waiting on the side/ the lights are up and it’s showtime.” The boys are back, indeed.

 

Will Kimbrough | Wings (Daphne Records)

| Print |

Written by Jim Dunn Friday, 26 February 2010 22:24

What is nice about these expressions is that they never sound forced or false, Kimbrough sounds happy, content..dare I say blessed?

   

Joe Firstman | El Porto (Firstman Music, Inc.)

| Print |

Written by Jim Dunn Friday, 26 February 2010 21:17

The storytelling is sweet, the presentation is earnest, and you could easily imagine Joe sharing a beer and a few laughs with you in between sets at the club.

 

Social Hero | The Famous (Machine Dream Records)

| Print |

Written by Jim Dunn Friday, 26 February 2010 21:01

And I mean this as a compliment, there is some serious 70s love going on here that reminds me of some Journey, maybe a bit of Queen, and, God help me, Styx.

   

Celebration Day | Bringin’ It On Home

| Print |

Written by Amy Burger Wednesday, 24 February 2010 15:21

Although he admits it’s a lot of work and a lot of fun, Pessoni doesn’t see Celebration Day turning into a week-long El Monstero-type run. “But we do try to add some new songs each year to make things different for the returning fans.”

 

Dead to Me | African Elephants (Fat Wreck Chords)

| Print |

Written by Nicole Madden Tuesday, 23 February 2010 19:58

Dead to Me deserves props for pushing forward and trying to find their new voice.

   

Johnny Cash | American VI: Ain't No Grave (American)

| Print |

Written by John Shepherd Tuesday, 23 February 2010 18:29

The album’s overall sentiment, rendered in his wavering but still-powerful baritone, seems to be, “It’s alright, I’m ready.”

 

Eagle Scout | New Hands (Cavity)

| Print |

Written by Laura Hamlett Saturday, 20 February 2010 17:48

Each of the five members pulls his weight perfectly, delivering an attention-grabbing performance and generating his share of infectious energy.

   

The Paperclips | Please Tell Your Loved Ones… (s/r)

| Print |

Written by Laura Hamlett Saturday, 20 February 2010 17:45

Here, the length of a syllable is just as important as a guitar riff; time is irrelevant, meant to be bent to your will.

 

Eikon | Careful Hands/Steady Hands (s/r)

| Print |

Written by Laura Hamlett Saturday, 20 February 2010 17:42

At just four songs it’s woefully short, and even those four songs don’t quite know what to make of themselves.

   

Proud Simon | Anchors Aweigh (s/r)

| Print |

Written by Mike Rengel Friday, 19 February 2010 20:06

But with each subsequent spin, despite my best efforts to stop it doing so, the disc got under my skin a little bit more.

 

Spoon | Transference (Merge)

| Print |

Written by Courtney Rau


 Friday, 19 February 2010 19:34

Tension of the opposites is the key descriptive phrase here.

   

Backyard Tire Fire | Good To Be (!K7)

| Print |

Written by Corey Woodruff Friday, 12 February 2010 12:20

This record never stays in one place for long—much like the band itself.

| Print |

Written by Kurt Klopmeier Wednesday, 09 December 2009 00:00

Morningbell | Sincerely, Severely (Orange)

| Print |

Written by Kurt Klopmeier Wednesday, 09 December 2009 00:00

cd_morningbell.jpgThe band is at its best when it slows down, mutes the drums and turns out some sexy, smooth and seductive bossa nova/soul that wouldn't be out of place next to Al Green or Curtis Mayfield.
