maxwell panther “sky like you”

Posted by gregor on Sunday, July 27th, 2014

maxwell

ive been meaning to listen to maxwell panther’s raw, real and the pure for oh a good 4-5 months now, and i still havent – well not all of it, but most. either way, had some time, wanted to mention it cause so far from what i have heard, i really dig it. i wrote about him some time ago, and while his stuff was a little rough, i heard tons of talent. he’s cleaned up his act quite a bit, which definitely suits him well. if you dig 90′s era bedroom recording stuff you’ll definitely dig mr panther, and even if you arent, there is still something very much to like about him.

drunken ramblings: jerry david decicca’s understanding land

Posted by gregor on Monday, July 21st, 2014

JDD album cover

sometimes when i connect to a record, its cause it reminds me of another record that i have connected with. for whatever reason, my first listen to jerry david decicca’s understanding land, i felt i was listening to mark lanegan’s whiskey for the holy ghost but for the first time but in 2014. i may be way off on that, cause after repeated listens of understanding land, they arent very similar at all, but then again, they arent worlds apart. like most anyone that loves music, its all about personal connection, and it shouldnt matter how you gain that connection its just as long as you do.

for those of you that dont know, jerry was the lead swan in the black swans. this is his first solo record, and as much as i have always dug the black swans, this is where he shines. one thing i love about this record is that its comes across as record about transformation, one thing i have touched upon in previous posts, so i hold that sort of topic pretty dear to my heart. its almost as if this isnt necessarily so much for the listener, but for jerry, himself. if the listener wants to hop on for the ride, great, if not, well so be it. understanding land is a beautiful record, lyrically and musically, and includes backing by will and spooner oldham, and kelly deal. understanding land is one of those records that will unfurl itself with every listen. i suggest curling up to it with your favorite beer, a pair of headphones and take it all in.

buy understanding land via amazon or bandcamp or wherever you buy record.

drunken ramblings: the blessed broke’s ladders out of purgatory

Posted by gregor on Wednesday, July 9th, 2014

blessed

thus far 2014 has been a helluva year for music, at least to these ears. i easily have a top 15 records of the year, and we’re barely through half the year. i must warn you, dear reader, that my next few “reviews” are going to be that of the gushing variety. i dont and never written about stuff i hate, i just dont have the time for that. i only wanna spread the good stuff. so, today we have kansas city’s the blessed broke and their record ladders out of purgatory. this is one of them records that came out of left field, honestly was not expecting much, but damn, once you dig into it, it digs into you. this may be my 2014 version of buffalo gospel’s we can be horses, which came out of nowhere and i think ended up at number 6 on my list last year. this is record is that damn good. while its not the most uplifting record, its not a total bummer, either, its actually quite lovely in all its melancholiac glory – not sure if that make sense? either way, the blessed broke reminds me quite a bit of songs:ohia but not magnolia electric co, cause they really had two separate visions. if you dig molina, in either variation, there is no way you wont dig the blessed broke. everything works in beautiful unison on ladders out of purgatory, whether it be brian frame’s lyrics/delivery, or the rest of the blessed broke players, pardon the lame pun, framing his lyrics, it really is a special record. definitely one of my favorites of 2014 and thus cannot recommend it enough.
