Album reviews 6/30/20

Angie McMahon- Salt: An Australian singer-songwriter who I guess is really sad? This is dour and gloomy and slow and really, really quiet. Like, up here in the States, it’s summer, and all the fans are on, so I had … Continue reading

Volbeat- Rewind, Replay, Rebound: It’s always a pleasure to hear Michael Poulsen’s clear vocals again, but I found myself wishing there were something more to this. Just one song that really stood out to me, in amongst some pleasant rock … Continue reading

Zoongide’ewin- Bleached Wavves: From the “indigenous music” and “moccasingaze” tags, I have to assume this is a First Nations band, and boy do they do some weird stuff. The opening track was frankly offputting, but getting past that, you’ll find … Continue reading

Devon Williams- Gilding the Lily: I listened to Williams’s second album, Euphoria, before this one, and that was a mistake. His sophomore release was quite disappointing, but this is the real deal. Soulful, dreamy New Wave, equal parts stripped down … Continue reading

Album reviews 6/14/20

Ötzi- Storm: Not to be confused with DJ Ötzi. This is retro punk with a female singer and a distinctly dark undertone. I can’t express how blast-from-the-past this is, it reminds me of a lot of bands that were goth … Continue reading

Devon Williams- Carefree: Going back to check out more of this guy’s stuff as I said I would! This is his first album, and the production is noticeably poorer than on his newer stuff. But you can hear the seeds … Continue reading
