destroyer “dream lover”

Posted by gregor on Thursday, May 21st, 2015

bejar

holy springsteen, dan bejar! i, admittedly, have not dug too much of bejar’s work since the first destroyer record, which is like one of the best bowie records bowie never released, and is still one of my favorites to this day. i love the thought of his work, but in reality we dont alway connect. its ok though, these things happen. this song, though, off his upcoming destroyer record poison season, which is due out on 8.28. this song makes me very excited about this record. you can read more about it via consequence of sound, here.

hop along “powerful man”

Posted by gregor on Tuesday, May 12th, 2015

hop

just happened to be on the facebooks the other day, and legendary producer producer/engineer/etc john agnello posted a link to story about hop along. the lead to the story was something about hop along’s lead singer, frances quinlan, having the best voice in music. im here to tell ya that i have not been so in awe and blown away by voice in many many years. here’s the thing that kinda pisses me off, she’s been doing this for ten years and i am now just hearing about her? better late than never, i suppose, but doesnt make the not knowing any easier to swallow. yeah she’s great, but the rest of hop along are no fucking slouches. everything about painted shut, from the lyrics, to frances’ voice, to the music is to put it plainly fucking awesome. i cannot get enough of this record, there is not one song on painted shut that doesnt kick all kinds of ass. as it stands right now, this is definitely my favorite record of the year. my favorite song off the record is “texas funeral” which you can find right down there.

buy painted shut via their bandcamp page or where you usually buy your records

smug brothers “meet a changing world”

Posted by gregor on Monday, May 4th, 2015

smug

i love smug brothers even though i havent written about them as much as i should have. i apologize for that. they have a new record out woodpecker paradise and its phenomenal. they’re from dayton, ohio, don trasher is in the band – ex-gbv, but kyle melton wrote all the songs. see where i am going with this? just listen to the damn song, enjoy, and buy their records. they got a bunch, but i would say this is their best one so far. definitely top 15 record status.

buy woodpecker paradise and their other releases via their bandcamp page

jodi james “kiss lonely goodbye” & “crazy sometimes”

Posted by gregor on Monday, May 4th, 2015

jodi

before i wind down the road, and leave you all, i wanted to touch on a couple records that i thought deserved attention. the first being baton rouge’s jodi james, whom i have gushed over before, and her new record things i leave behind. i cannot speak more highly of jodi’s music, its absolutely gorgeous, and if there was ever an artist i would peg with the “should be huge” tag, it would be jodi. her lyrics are great, her voice is lovely, and just all around an artist you should without a doubt listen to. her new record is definitely one of my favorites of the year.

buy things i leave behind via her bandcamp page
