Back in January, whilst aimlessly scrolling through Facebook and YouTube, I came across a music [more]
I’m going to do a bit of a throwback this week for my review. Last semester we received the self-titled album from Grandfather Child. I am a huge fan of this album and could literally listen to it on repeat for hours. With this album you receive about 40 minutes of playtime where each track is its own creature, which yet, as a collective, are still able to flow together seamlessly. Unlike a lot of records that I have been listening to recently, the Grandfather Child album has stood up because of their content. All of the… Continue reading
!Ay Caramba! Sorry for my lateness, but the good news is that the new Yellow Red Sparks was recently released on the 29th of January. The album, also titled Yellow Red Sparks, was my favorite release of the week, and has since been my go-to album. The songs on the album seem so personal, due to lack of “fluff”. There is no need for it here, because the songs stand up for themselves. Each track catches my attention, and I can’t help but get caught up in what I’m listening to. Their shows are also… Continue reading
Hey there, hi there, ho there! With the New Year and new semester I’m going to try to keep up with reviews. Hopefully I’ll be able to post something weekly, so brace yourself! Before I start this first review I feel like I need to preface it by saying that I’ve been a Tyler Bryant and the Shakedown fan since I first heard of them, so I may be a bit biased. That being said, I loved their new album “Wild Child”. It keeps up with the old school blues-rock that they had on their previous album… Continue reading
The Growl’s new EP Cleaver Lever stormed in and, to my disappointment, out with the blink of an eye (no reference to the album art intended). The band, a six piece group hailing from Australia, started out as a just-for-fun recording project between the band’s front-man and bassist, and have evolved into a band that I would sincerely suggest everyone take a good look at. Cleaver Lever is a 5-track EP that leaves its listener wanting more. The first track, “With the Sharp End of a Trowel”, begins with an ominous sound, which creeps into a bluesy rhythm… Continue reading
Inheritance is the new 4 track EP from indie-folk band The Last Bison. With a running time just shy of 15 minutes Inheritance serves as a glimpse into the world of The Last Bison while effectively bridging the gap between their past and future. Two of the songs, “Switzerland” and “Dark Am I”, are new recordings of songs from their Quill LP. The other two songs are brand new tracks, and fit in really well with the older compositions. Although the production seems rather anemic at times and takes getting used to, the songs themselves hold together extremely… Continue reading
