Terry Adams - Talk Thelonious (CD, Clang!, Jazz)
Terry Adams is best known as a pianist and founding member of the well-loved group NRBQ. On Talk Thelonious, Adams and his associates pay homage to jazz legend Thelonious Monk. Adams has been a Monk fan for decades and finally decided the time was right to record and release some of his interpretations of the man's music to the public. The tracks for this album were mainly taken from a live concert in Burlington, Vermont in 2012. Also playing on these tracks are Scott Ligon, Pete Donnelly, and Conrad Choucroun (the other members of NRBQ) along with Jim Hoke, Klem Klimek, and Pete Toigo. These cuts effectively capture the spirit of Monk but they're also injected with the musicians' own unique personal style. It's no small feat successfully covering the music of Thelonious Monk...but these fellows have succeeded on all levels. Over fifty minutes' worth of captivating, inspired jazz. Tracks include "Reflections," "Hornin' In," "Think of One," and "Straight, No Chaser."

A Fragile Tomorrow - Make Me Over (CD, MPress, Pop)
So many bands don't have a defined sound, style, or image. This band has all three. A Fragile Tomorrow is a four piece band based in Charleston, South Carolina that is bound to leave an impression on you. The group is led by identical twin brothers Sean Kelly and Dominic Kelly, both of whom are living with cerebral palsy. Rounding out the band are Brendan Kelly (a third brother but not identical) and Shaun Rhoades. The band's influences include David Bowie, T. Rex, Brian Wilson, Cheap Trick, and The Who. But the overall sound of the tracks on Make Me Over are much more current than these influences might suggest. In addition to having a heavily stylized sound similar to the artists they admire, the guys in this band are also rather stylish with their clothes and overall appearance. Great songs, a strong image, and a strong presence...all add up to a band that is impossible to ignore. A Fragile Tomorrow songs are smart, reflective, melodic, and ultimately very catchy. This is one of those rare cases where the folks in the band are doing everything right. Top notch cuts include "Make Me Over (Noddy Holder)," "In My Mind," "Can't You Hear Me?", and "One Way Ticket (Coda)." Top pick.

Annabelle's Curse - Worn Out Skin (Independently released CD, Pop)
If memory serves us correctly, this is the first time we've covered a band based in the unlikely city of Bristol, Tennessee. This five person group writes and records what might best be described as progressive folk/bluegrass/pop with a heavy emphasis on vocals and lyrics. The songs on Worn Out Skin come across sounding exceedingly genuine and inspired. We get the feeling listening to this that these five individuals really love what they're doing. In the package we received there were no publicity photos...no mention of the individuals' names in the group...and no photos on the album sleeve. So obviously the emphasis is on the music rather than the musicians themselves. Really nice smooth stuff that will stick with you. Cool resilient tracks include "Lovedrunk Desperados," "Wolf In Sheep Clothes," and "Beneath the Clouded Moon."

Aquino - Giants Will Fall (Independently released CD, Pop)
Refreshingly genuine music from Bloomfield, New Jersey's Michael Aquino. This is Aquino's debut album...and it's a keeper. Michael combines elements from rock, folk, and Latin music to create a nice warm friendly sound that should appeal to a wide range of folks. You won't hear any canned sounds here or any trendy technology. And you won't see any peculiar imagery. The tracks on Giants Will Fall were created with traditional instruments. And they are presented simply without a lot of unnecessary fanfare and overdubs. Aquino comes across like a normal guy making good solid music for fans who are more concerned about music than other variables. In addition to making music, Michael is also an actor and performs regularly in New Jersey and New York. Thirteen intelligent cool tracks from this cool multi-talented fellow. Nifty cuts include "New Year's Reprieve," "Robot Joe," Before Long," and "1890."

Gilad Atzmon & The Orient House Ensemble - The Whistle Blower (CD, Moonjune, Jazz)
Gilad Atzmon is one of those guys whose name might escape you...but you've almost certainly heard him many times in the past if you have even a casual interest in popular music. This guy has played with a wide variety of well-known artists including Ian Dury, Robbie Williams, Sinead O'Connor, Paul McCartney, Robert Wyatt, Pink Floyd...and more. Atzmon is a multi-instrumentalist who is admirably skilled on the saxophone, clarinet, and ethnic woodwind instruments. In 2000 he created The Orient House Ensemble as a vehicle to re-define his own musical roots. The ensemble includes Chris Higginbottom (drums), Yaron Stavi (bass), and Frank Harrison (piano, electronics). The Whistle Blower is impressively diverse. Rather than going for one sound or style, Gilad and his associates let their music take them wherever it may. And, as a result, the listener is treated to some pieces that are upbeat and aggressive while others are more abstract and moody. If you're interested in British jazz, this group is absolutely essential listening. Eight groovy cuts including "Gaza Mon Amour," "The Song," "To Be Free," and "The Whistle Blower."



Everything and
Everyone is


Edgar Barroso - Immersion, Absorption, Connection (Triple CD, Ravello, Modern classical)
Edgar Barroso is a genius. Take a look at his web site (link above) and you'll see why. This multi-talented man is operating in a world that is light years beyond the scope and imagination of most people. On Immersion, Absorption, Connection Barroso offers a wealth of modern classical compositions...divided across three compact discs. Suffice to say, there's a lot of music here to take in. And be forewarned, this is not for everyone. If you're the type of listener who demands things like catchy lyrics, familiar melodies, and repetitive rhythms this may be more confusing than entertaining. And if you don't like the idea of sound presented as music, much of this may frighten you away. But for those with an adventurous spirit and a willingness to go where few listeners go, there's a wealth of super imaginative heady material here that may very well blow your mind. Some of these compositions remind us of experimental artists like John Cage and Frank Zappa...while others seem to teeter off into their own unique territory. The key word here is...experimentation. Barroso isn't making music that is familiar and easy. His compositions are challenging and peculiar. And he's not afraid to go off on some very strange tangents along the way. We particularly love the packaging on this one. All three CDs fit inside one slim triple fold-cardboard sleeve...which takes up less space than a traditional jewel case. A bizarre and strangely beautiful musical experiment. Top pick.

Knowlton Bourne - Songs From Motel 43 (CD, MISRA, Progressive pop)
After playing this album over and over and over...we finally decided we can't figure out who the hell this guy sounds like. And that might just be the biggest compliment we can offer here, because it's rare when an artist doesn't remind us of someone else or some other band. And what makes things even weirder...is that Songs From Motel 43 sounds very, very familiar. Knowlton Bourne is a native of Mississippi and his music seems to reflect his geographic location...but not in a standard or predictable way. These songs incorporate basic sounds that most of us know and love...but the music is also laced with some slight psychedelia and unpredictable elements. The listener is continually treated to twists and turns in the tunes as well as the arrangements, so things never get boring. And then there's Knowlton's voice...which is totally groovy and neat. He never oversings or forces himself, but instead just allows the lyrics and melodies to come out naturally. This may not knock you out on the first spin. But if you give Bourne's music a bit of time, you just might find yourself falling in love with his unique style. Totally cool cuts include "Summer Sun," "Hangin' Around," "Motel 43," and "Glow." Recommended. Top pick.

Joe King Carrasco y Los Side FX - Chiliando (CD, Avaconda, Rock)
Joe King Carrasco forever cemented his place in history decades ago as one of the original artists on England's Stiff label. He became known as the King of Tex-Mex rock and roll and has maintained the title ever since. 2015 finds Joe and his band sounding mighty fine and inspired. Chiliando incorporates sounds and ideas from a variety of genres even though the songs on this album are surprisingly straightforward. In fact, these tracks remind us very much of mid-period Rolling Stones more than anyone else (?!). Backing Carrasco on this album are Albert Besteiro on guitar, Vince Mejia on drums, and Chuggy Hernandez on bass (plus some very well chosen special guest artists). This nifty rockin' album presents twelve rhythm driven cuts including "My Ding Dong Daddy (Don't Daddy No Mo)," "Anytime You Need Me," "Chiliando!," and "Ain't No Touch (Like Your Touch)."

Filiamotsa - Like It Is (CD, Aagoo, Progressive/rock)
Intelligent harsh driving progressive rock. The folks in this band have a sound that reminds us in many ways of classic 1970s artists like Howard DeVoto, The Buzzcocks, Sex Pistols, and Joy Division. But these songs are actually much more abstract that these comparisons might suggest. Like It Is doesn't sound like other twenty-first century albums. These tracks are hard, dense, and intense. And the vocals are particularly focused and personalized. Guitars, violins, keyboards, and horns sometimes combine to create a whirlwind classical effect. Filiamotsa is a band with a definite overall sound and style. It's hard to classify this or put it in one specific genre. What's interesting is how listenable these compositions are. Seven perplexing cuts including "The Little Shop," "Sleepy Tigers," and "Maybe." Bizarre and intense...and rather terrific in so many ways... Recommended. Top pick.

Robert Forster - Songs To Play (CD, Tapete, Pop)
It's been seven years since Robert Forster released his last solo album. That critically acclaimed release (The Evangelist) came out not long after the death of fellow Go-Betweens member Grant McLennan. Forster put writing and recording on the back burner for the past few years while he was working on other projects (he's a very, very busy guy these days). Recorded in a studio on a mountain top in an analog studio, Songs To Play is certain to please fans of the Go-Betweens and Robert's solo recordings. The ten tracks on this album are very personal and have a nice warm organic sound, with the central focus being on Forster's cool voice and lyrics. At a point in time when most everyone is layering and producing everything to pieces, Songs To Play is refreshing sparse and simple. The open breezy arrangements are a perfect fit for these subtle, smart pop compositions. This guy still has the magic that made his music appeal to so many people years ago. Lovely tracks include "Learn To Burn," "I'm So Happy For You," "Turn On The Rain," and "Disaster In Motion."

Holly Golightly and the Brokeoffs - Coulda Shoulda Woulda (CD, Transdreamer, Pop)
If seems like every time we turn around there's a new Holly Golightly album popping up somewhere. She's been making music for a quarter of a century now and in that time has released no less than 35 (?!!) albums. And the amazing part is that--at least from what we've heard--they're all rather credible, cool, and entertaining. The consistency of the musical output is probably due to the fact that Golghtly and her associates seem to just love making music. You can hear this in every note and every lyric and every beat. Labeling this music as pop is a bit misleading because the actual sound veers in and out of a variety of genres. But whatever sound or style Holly and her band present, they always manage to succeed. It's no wonder this talented lady has developed such a loyal and devoted fan base around the world. Coulda Shoulda Woulda is full of absolutely charming toe-tappers that should appeal to a wide range of music fans, young and old alike. These tracks are a pure feelgood experience...and a welcome vacation from the realities of everyday life. Twelve kickass cuts including "Heavy Buy and Buy," "The Devil's Flower," "What He Does," and "Christmas Is A Lie."

Masatora Goya - Dream of Sailing (CD, Ravello, Classical)
Beautiful...soft...flowing...and gentle. If you're in the mood for a relaxing experience you'll be delightfully rewarded with Dream of Sailing. Inspired by the life and passing of his father Masahiro Goya (1932-2011), this album presents pieces by composer Masatora Goya. These recordings are very simple and sparse, utilizing only one, two, or three instruments per track. The feeling we get listening to this is the same feeling we get when we listen to the sounds of the forest. This music is soft and organic...and very personal. The album is divided into six sections: "Distance," "Dream of Sailing," "Inner Voice," "Where It Begins, Where It All Ends," "Sound of Life," and "Sunset on the Hudson." Unassuming, reserved, and ultimately inspired music with heart.

The Homesman - Original Motion Picture Soundtrack: Music by Marco Beltrami (CD, Varese Sarabande, Soundtrack)
Yet another resilient soundtrack created by Marco Beltrami. Beltrami first came to the attention of most folks as the creator of the music for the Wes Craven movie Scream. Since that time he has created an impressive body of work and has become one of the most in-demand composers of music for film. The Homesman is a story of travel on the American frontier. And it marks the third time that Beltrami has worked with director Tommy Lee Jones. What we find most interesting here is that this music is overall rather strange. It sounds nothing like what you would think a soundtrack about traveling the country in a covered wagon would sound like (!). But our guess is the music is probably what makes this film interesting and suspenseful. This album contains music that is soothing, heady, sometimes surreal, and sometimes foreboding. It's an interesting mix of sounds, styles, and moods. And, as you might guess (since it's on the Varese Sarabande label), the sound quality is impeccable. Twenty-one cool reflective cuts including "The Homesman Main Title," "I'll Be Back Directly," and "Onto The Ferry." Some truly beautiful stuff here mixed with some segments that are peculiar and unusual.

Husky Rescue - The Long Lost Friend [Special Edition] (Double CD, Catskills, Progressive pop)
This is a far cry from the dull predictable modern pop that most music fans seem to crave in 2015. This double album set features music that is driven more by a desire to create than a desire for fame and fortune. Husky Rescue is the band/project created by a fellow named Marko Nyberg who takes a more fluid approach to music than most. This double disc set presents a lot of imaginative stuff for those interesting in taking the trip. The first disc presents tracks from the album Long Lost Friend that was originally released on Nyberg's El Camino label. But this time around tracks from some 7-inch releases have also been added. The second disc presents more current recordings Nyberg made with composer Antony Bentley and vocalist Johanna Kalen that originally accompanied a New York exhibition by designer Kustaa Saaksi. This is artsy stuff to be certain. The tracks on these albums are more like audio art than pop music, although some of the tracks are surprisingly accessible. Unlike standard pop albums, you never quite know what you're going to hear from one track to the next. Lovely provocative stuff that is genuinely different and uniquely inspired. Recommended.



People don't

Krisp - Sonic Monarch (Independently released CD, Pop)
If you love the sound of alternative pop/dance bands from the 1980s, there's an excellent possibility you will fall in love with the sounds on Sonic Monarch. Based in Miami, Florida, Krisp is a band that doesn't sound like other bands from that state. These folks write and record ultimately satisfying dance pop cuts that are simply addictive. The rhythms practically demand movement...and the bass lines are way, way, way beyond what we normally hear in pop music. The eight tracks on this album remind us in many ways of classic bands like New Order and The Thompson Twins. If you want a pure feelgood experience, look no further. Groovy cuts include "Franz," "Riverside Strangler," "Dust," and "Once."

The Legends - It's Love (CD, Labrador, Pop)
Johan Angergard is one busy man driven to create and inspire. As the leader of the intriguing Swedish Labrador label, he is also a member of the way cool bands Club 8 and Acid House Kings. As if that weren't enough, he has yet another alter-ego band called The Legends that began back in 2003. The idea was just to write and record whatever he wanted without any regard for continuity or creating an identifiable sound. As a result, Legends albums vary greatly from one to the next. At several points along the way Angergard felt that the project had ended. But each time a situation provided the necessary fuel for invention and the band lived on. It's been several years since the last album from The Legends. Angergard went through some recent changes in his life...he turned 40 and a long time relationship ended. Having done most everything any musician could dream of (being in three cool bands...running his own label...), he began to take stock of where he stood in life. About the same time he fell in love again. To put everything into perspective (and to music), he created It's Love...a beautifully understated pop album full of subtle moody tracks. These dreamy compositions are very personal and somewhat delicate...seemingly inspired by a sincere need to create. We've always loved this guy's music and the artists on his label so...it's no surprise that we love this one as well. Nine well-crafted cuts including "Keep Him," "Love You," "All About Us," and "The Embrace." Top pick.

Long Distance Runners - Elements (Independently released CD, Progressive pop)
The third full-length release from the St. John's, Newfoundland-based band Long Distance Runners. This six person band has a thick progressive sound that is heady and slightly trippy. On their web site the band lists influences like David Bowie, The Velvet Underground, Johnny Cash, and The Rolling Stones. But the overall sound of Long Distance Runners is actually more abstract and fluid...and sometimes more poppy...than any of these comparisons might suggest. We hear a lot of bands from Canada these days, but this one stands out from the pack because their sound is different and more varied. These six musicians seem to be doing just about everything right. Their music sounds very pure. They don't overplay and oversing...the nuances of the songs are subtle yet striking. The songs are smart and memorable and the lyrics are intelligent. And we love the cool understated vocals (and cool harmonies). In addition to the groovy music, Long Distance Runners also came up with a really cool cover idea. There's a transparent sheet inside the sleeve. When you move it across the four abstract shapes on the front cover, the shapes start moving...really COOL. Nifty compositions include "The One," "You Gotta Remind Me," "Rust Before We Shine, and "Walk Straight."

McCormick Percussion Group - Plot: Music For Unspecified Instrumentation (Double CD, Ravello, Modern classical)
Mighty strange stuff here, even by our peculiar standards. We certainly admire folks making music like this not only because of the creativity involved...but also because the musicians obviously know they are playing to a very select and specific audience. You can be certain that you won't find any mainstream music here. This double disc set presents compositions that are far outside the norm. The musicians are much more concerned with setting a mood than creating hummable passages. Director Robert McCormick is a Professor of Music at the University of South Florida in Tampa. He and his Percussion Group have now recorded over two dozen (!) albums and they're still going strong. Plot: Music For Unspecified Instrumentation is yet another strangely satisfying album full of unpredictable compositions. It's difficult describing what this music sounds like because there aren't any easy and obvious comparisons. We can probably sum things up best by saying...disc number one is strange...but disc number two is much stranger. The album is dedicated to Stuart Saunders Smith who composed the lead track ("Bones") and closer ("Winter") and also plays on Earle Brown's "December 1952." The album also features works by composers Robert Erickson, Johanna Magdalena Beyer, James Tenney, and Herbert Brun. Puzzling and ultimately brilliant, this is yet another stellar addition to the musical catalog offered by the always entertaining McCormick Percussion Group. Top pick.

Mipso - Old Time Reverie (CD, Robust, Folky pop)
This is the second full-length release from this North Carolina-based quartet. The band's 2013 debut (Dark Holler Pop) surprised a lot of folks when it reached the #8 position on Billboard's Bluegrass chart. Since that time, the folks in Mipso have become a touring monster...playing up to 200 live shows a year (!). The band began as the trio of Jacob Sharp (mandolin), Joseph Terrell (guitar), and Wood Robinson (bass)...but with the addition of vocalist Libby Rodenbough they are now a quartet. The songs on Old Time Reverie sound something like an updated Crosby, Stills & Nash threaded with traces of bluegrass and country. The thing that stands out most about Mipso are the vocals. Man oh man can these folks harmonize with each other. Their voices merge perfectly on these highly melodic tracks that are laced with intricate stringed instruments. We like the fact that the folks in this band embrace being from the Southeast, as this part of the country has evolved so much over the past several decades. You can bet your very best booties that Old Time Reverie will be warmly embraced. These smooth friendly tracks provide exactly what many listeners want in 2015. This listener-friendly album includes "Marianne," "Father's House," "Stranger," and "Everyone Knows."

Fabio Mittino & Bert Lams - Long Ago (Independently released CD, Guitar/instrumental)
Talk about eclectic. On this album, ultra supreme guitarists Fabio Mittino and Bert Lams teamed up and recorded seventeen instrumentals written between 1918 and 1927 by Gurdjeff and De Hartmann. The results...are exotic, intoxicating, and exceedingly resilient. Tasteful doesn't even begin to describe the wonderfully precise sounds created by these two musicians. Lams was first introduced to Mittino by Robert Fripp back in 1998. The two used Gibson arch top guitars from the 1930s to record these tracks, which may explain why these songs have such an authentic sound. Considering the fact that this album presents American songs, Hindu melodies, Kurdish melodies, an Orthodox Hymn, and Sayyid dances...these tracks are surprisingly smooth and familiar sounding. This is, quite simply, one of the best guitar instrumental albums we've heard. The playing is precise and inspired...and the material is unusually refreshing. Seventeen tracks that will make you fall in love with the guitar all over again. Highly recommended. TOP PICK.

Mr. Turner - Original Motion Picture Soundtrack: Music by Gary Yershon (CD, Varese Sarabande, Soundtrack)
Mr. Turner is a film that explores the last quarter century of the life of British painter J.M.W. Turner who lived from 1775 to 1851. Turner was a controversial artist and individual who folks seemed to both love and hate. Initial reviews of this movie are extremely positive...so this might be one to put on your list of "must sees." The music for Mr. Turner was composed by Britain's Gary Yershon who worked closely with director Mike Leigh to come up with sounds that would perfectly tie in with the film. The two originally worked together on the 1999 film Topsy Turvy. The first twenty-one tracks on this album are classical instrumental pieces from Mr. Turner that will surely pull listeners and viewers into the world of nineteenth-century England. These tracks have a wonderful rich sound and they're much more calm and reflective than what one normally hears in a 2015 soundtrack album. A huge bonus here is that this album also features eight compositions from the 2012 short film A Running Jump (another project that brought together the talents of Yershon and Leigh). We can't help but think that Yershon's music for Mr. Turner will end up being one of the peaks in his career.

Anthony Neff & The Nearly Distants - Blood Beneath the Sun (CD, Porch Glow, Pop)
This is one of those cool things out there that makes us really glad we're in the loop. Even though this is an excellent album full of intelligent songs, there's a good chance that Blood Beneath the Sun will pass beneath the radar. Why? Simply because (a) there's way too much music out there, (b) it isn't being released on an ultra-cool label (it's an independent release), and (c) there are no celebrity guest appearances. We hope this album receives the recognition it deserves, because Anthony Neff is one super talented and smart fellow. His voice is what impresses us most. This guy's vocals sound something like a cross between Donovan Leitch and Bryan Ferry. And, interestingly, the songs also have some similarities to these two artists. Recorded in Durham, North Carolina with The Nearly Distants providing backup, this album is immediately familiar and instantly gripping. On the first spin we really liked this. By the fourth or fifth spin, well...we found that ourselves totally in love. Killer tracks include "Scene of the Crime," "In The Night," "Hey Little Lion," and "Under A Tuscan Moon." Top pick.

Samuel Pellman - Selected Galaxies (CD, Ravello, Electronic)
Cool flowing spacey electronic music from Samuel Pellman. The first few times we heard Selected Galaxies we kept thinking this reminded us of someone, but we couldn't put our finger on it. Then it hit us...this album reminds us very much of some of the wonderfully exotic (but obscure) electronic albums released by Wendy (aka Walter) Carlos back in the 1970s and 1980s. Unlike a lot of electronic albums, Galaxies does not have a canned technology-based sound. Pellman uses sounds that are warm and inviting rather than stark and cold. As a result, his sonic landscapes tend to envelop you rather than scare you away. This album features four compositions: "Peculiar Galaxies" (presented in four sections), "Spiral Galaxies" (presented in three sections), "Elliptical Galaxies," and "Selected Cosmos." Each composition has its own sound and style, more or less. Taken as a whole, this album will make you feel very much as if you are floating in outer space. Although we're not quite sure how we could make such a statement, seeing as how we've never ever actually been in outer space. Lovely stuff that tends to wrap the listener in a blanket of groovy sound.

Brian Ritchey - Bordeaux (CD, Barrelmaker, Americana/pop)
Nashville, Tennessee's Brian Ritchey plays a smooth familiar sounding brand of Americana pop that is very popular in 2015. His songs recall classic artists from the past like Neil Young, Gram Parsons, and Nick Drake. Bordeaux is Ritchey's latest album and the first to be released on his newly formed Barrelmaker label. Brian's last release featured louder more rocking tunes, but on this album he chose to present slightly more subdued moody compositions. Smart move, because the tracks on Bordeaux come off sounding inspired, genuine, and very personal. Ritchey's lyrics and overall presence are what separate him from all the other Americana/pop artists out there. These smooth intricate tracks feature groovy guitars, wonderfully moody pedal steel guitar, and Brian's cool deep voice. When this guy sings you actually feel as though he is talking to you. This one will no doubt be a favorite among folks in the Americana scene across the globe. Nifty cuts include "Hello Lonely Friends," "We're Just Wrong," "I'm Not Gone," "Rest My Head," and "This Old House."



It is better
To die
Than roll over and

Tokyo Rosenthal - Afterlife (CD, Rock & Socks, Americana/pop)
Tokyo Rosenthal is one of those cool underground folks out there who simply makes good music. There are no gimmicks, no trendy ideas or sounds, no attempts at having an image, etc. Nope, none of the usual things. Rosenthal seems content to simply write good solid songs and present them using only the most essential ingredients. It's no wonder he's won over so many fans over the past few years. Even though he hasn't hit the big time yet, he's a big success with his fans and with writers. He's received ultra-positive reviews in some very notable places, and they're all well-deserved. Afterlife is yet another strong addition to Tokyo's continually growing catalog. The album features songs that incorporate sounds and ideas from pop, rock, folk, and Americana. And they're all delivered with undeniable style and conviction. Rosenthal writes songs that can be appreciated by just about anyone. They have a nice familiar sound and feature cool memorable melodies and insightful lyrics. Ten cool compositions including "The Bunk House," "Back Stage Hotel," and "What Would Have Happened?"

Brad San Martin - Tell Someone (CD-R, Jigsaw, Pop)
The first solo album from Brad San Martin who is, up to this point in time, best known as a member of the band One Happy Island who released several albums on overseas abels over the course of the past few years. Tell Someone is like a blast from the past. Some of you will remember way back in the early 1980s when there was a short-lived phenomenon called cassette artists...underground musicians who took recording into their own hands, recording and reproducing music in their homes way, way, way before the age of digital recording. This album effectively captures the overall sound and idea of recordings from that point in time. What made some of the cassette artists so engaging was their pure sincerity and innocence...and the fact that the songs were so personal. That same sincerity and innocence can be found in the music created by Brad. Recorded in an attic with an old four track reel-to-reel recorder and a "battered digital eight track"...San Martin recorded these tracks himself using "No Pro Tools!" If there is one word that effectively sums up the overall sound here that word would be...understated. These songs sound very much like a real person playing and singing. No tweaking to perfection and no multiple layers of sound. These songs are presented using only the essentials and the overall sound is wonderfully sparse. The more we spin this the better it sounds. Nifty heartfelt songs include "Saved By An Idea," "Art Once," "Self Saver," and "Lite Shines." This one doesn't sound like all the rest... Top pick.

SPC ECO - Dark Matter (CD, Saint Marie, Electronic/pop)
Like low, low, low, deep, deep, deep bass notes that you can FEEL...? If so, you're likely to totally groove on the tripped out sounds created by SPC ECO (pronounced "Space Echo"). The folks in this band write and record spacey electronic pop that sometimes reminds us of The Cocteau Twins...without ever sounding all that similar. The tracks on Dark Matter remind us of the ultra-cool phase of music in the 1990s when it seemed as if a new Trance pop band popped up every five seconds. SPC ECO was created by Dean Garcia who most folks know as a member of the band Curve. Vocalist Rose Berlin has a voice that seems tailor made for this style of music. This album is all about grooves and moods...and it creates plenty of both. Ten wonderful cuts here including "Creep In The Shadows," "Playing Games," "Meteor," and "Under My Skin." Really clever artwork on this one. Totally groovy stuff.

State Shirt - Lost Hills (CD, LFA, Progressive pop)
Truly imaginative music that comes from a different perspective. We've enjoyed stuff created by State Shirt in the past...but this time this guy has really outdone himself. This is, quite simply, the best State Shirt release yet. To sum this one up in a few words...Lost Hills completely and effectively combines classic pop with modern electronics. The merging of the two presents a fantastic audio world where unique cool sounds collide with wonderfully familiar vocal melodies. We haven't heard anything that sounds quite like this. Such descriptions might lead you to believe that these tracks are artsy or strange, but instead the exact opposite is true. These songs are incredibly listener-friendly. They push the limits just far enough that you're struck with new sounds and ideas all the while enjoying music the way you normally do. State Shirt is the one man band created by Ethan Tufts, a fellow who is obviously creating his own rules and ideas on how to make, market, and sell his creations. If you like the music, check out this guy's web site...and you'll be even more impressed with the man making the music. Tufts is doing everything right. He writes great songs. His arrangements are perfect. He has an incredible voice. And the way he markets himself is the best. Instead of a download card in the package we received, the download information was printed on a packet of seeds. This is an easy and OBVIOUS Top Pick this month. Highly recommended music from a truly creative mind and unique spirit. This stuff is just...the BEST.

Stone The Crows - Teenage Licks / Ontinuous Performance (Double CD, Angel Air, Rock/pop)
Yet another double disc reissue of albums from Great Britain's Stone The Crows. Although virtually unknown in the United States, this band was very popular in Great Britain in the 1970s. Stone The Crows was comprised of Maggie Bell (who followed with a very successful solo career), Colin Allen, Les Harvey, Ronnie Leahy, Steve Thompson, and Jimmy McCulloch. These folks played an aggressive brand of bluesy rock that was very popular at the time and the main focus was on Bell's raspy voice (she was often compared to Janis Joplin). This double CD set features all the original tracks from the albums Teenage Licks and Ontinuous Performance...plus four additional live bonus tracks. Guitarist Les Harvey died during the recording of Ontinuous Performance and was replaced by McCulloch. But the band never really recovered from the loss and eventually abandoned ship. Because the popularity of Stone The Crows was somewhat geographically limited at the time, this reissue will hopefully make a whole new legion of fans aware of the band. There's a lot to sink your teeth into here. Twenty tracks in all including "Don't Think Twice," "Seven Lakes," "Let It Down," "On The Highway," "Sunset Cowboy," and "Good Time Girl."

Supersuckers - Holdin' The Bag (Advance CD, Acetate, Pop)
Longtime fan favorites Supersuckers are back. This time there's a bittersweet story. The good news is that the band has another solid album out. The sad news...is that lead singer Eddie Spaghetti has recently been diagnosed with Stage 3 throat cancer. The band has been around for a quarter of a century and has released more than twenty albums during that time. They've developed a seriously devoted fan base during all these years and they show no signs of letting up at this late stage of the game. Holdin' The Bag finds the band in fine form, continuing to provide the soulful country-tinged barroom rock they're known for. The basics of the songs are provided by Spaghetti's driving bass lines, Marty Chandler's tasteful guitars, and Chris Von Steicher's steady beats. The band managed to blaze their way through the 1990s right on through to the twenty-first century. And during all that time they've always managed to offer good solid tunes for their fans. Twelve feelgood rockin' cuts here including "This Life...With You," "Man On A Mission," "That's How It Gets Done," and "All My Rowdy Friends (Have Settled Down)."

Tacachale Chamber Orchestra - Ocean Floor Funeral (CD, Cuscowilla Conservatory, Progressive pop)
Well now here's a band with a different overall sound and style...particularly when you consider the fact that they're based in Florida (?!!). Imagine crossing the music of Harper's Bizarre with The Beach Boys. Then throw in a tiny hint of bluegrass and a whole lot of progressive creativity...and you might end up with the Tacachale Chamber Orchestra. This short album clocks in at just over thirty minutes. But in that amount of time these folks provide a wealth of imagination and pure creativity. We particularly love the vocals on this one...super smooth and the harmonies are fantastic. Cool creative cuts include "Wish You Were Him," "What's Your Home?", "Don't Wake Up," and "Cold Winter." The album features vocal tracks as well as instrumental versions. Very unusual stuff and exceedingly well executed. Top pick.

Thrushes - Exposing Seas (CD, New Granada, Pop/rock)
The folks in the band Thrushes play dense shoegazer-esque pop in the vein of 1990s drone bands and 1980s 4AD bands. The band formed in 2005 and released two well-received discs in 2007 (Sun Come Undone) and 2010 (Night Falls). Now comes Exposing Seas...another dense and hypnotic journey into the world of underground rock. Produced by J. Robbins (who has worked with artists like Jawbox and Burning Airlines), this album has a great big sound propelled by focused rhythms and driving bass lines. Add in ethereal distorted guitars and cool distanced vocals...and you have an underground sound that is gripping and inventive. The band is comprised of Anna Conner (vocals, guitar), Casey Harvey (guitar), Rachel Harvey (bass), and Scott Tiemann (drums). Eight rockin' cuts.

Twink - Dust Bunny (CD-R/Vinyl LP, Disques de Lapin, Toytronica)
Twink is, without a doubt, one of the coolest musical bands/projects ever created. While the overall idea of the band remains constant (creating music using toy pianos and other toy instruments)...over time Twink has evolved and become it's own unique form of art. If you think the idea of making music with toys would wear thin and become samey, think again. Mike Langlie (the man who is Twink) continues to challenge himself and his listeners by continually spinning new takes on his basic idea and slowly but surely expanding the ways that toys can be used to create music that can be appreciated by just about anyone. Dust Bunny is yet another wildly successful endeavor and this time around the results are even more heady and progressive than normal. If we had to sum up this album in a single word, that word would be...magical. Langlie has even created his own word to describe his genre...Toytronica. That said, he has effectively catapulted himself into being the Brian Eno of Toytronica. Looking into the future, we could easily see the two artists working together at some point. Now wouldn't that be interesting...? Even though this is not music box music, the songs on this album are likely to give you the same feeling you might have while listening to a music box (with some interesting mental tweaks and unusual swerves, of course). We should also mention that Dust Bunny is the first Twink album to be released on vinyl. And what a work of art this one is. Featuring magnificent cover artwork courtesy of Kate O'Hara (a truly fantastic image of a bunny with a mirror image of itself as a skeleton...wild and weird stuff...), the album itself is pressed on colored vinyl and looks like toy spin art. And each one is unique, no two look exactly the same. Only 300 (?!!) copies are being made available so if you want one you'd better act fast. The attention to detail here (the music, the artwork, the overall concept) is remarkable in so many ways. Twink is one of our all-time top favorite artists ever. Few folks have refined their idea to the extent that this man has. Hats off again to Mike Langlie for being both entertaining and exceedingly thought provoking and unique. Highly recommended.. TOP PICK.

The Universal Thump - Walking The Cat: The Abbey Road EP (Independently released CD EP, Progressive pop)
Our first reaction to this disc was, "Wow...what a great big, warm, open sound!" Our second reaction was that the name seemed odd (The Abbey Road EP?). But when we read the accompanying press release, everything suddenly became clear. The songs for this EP were recorded at the famous Abbey Road Studios in London, England and were funded by a Kickstarter campaign. Which just goes to show devoted and faithful fans are of The Universal Thump. The band is the duo of singer/songwriter/producer Greta Gertier Gold and producer/drummer Adam D. Gold...along with whatever artists they choose to be playing with at the moment. We rarely review EPs, and only when they offer something substantial. The Golds have really outdone themselves here. These five tracks are smart, imaginative, unpredictable, and ultimately very, very listener friendly. These tracks will stand the test of time...you can bet your booties that they'll still sound great decades from now. They have a wonderfully cool classic sound and the songs themselves are nothing short of spectacular. Five super satisfying tracks here including "Sunset Park," "Watch the Sunrise," and "Walking the Cat." We can't wait for these folks' next full-length release. Highly recommended. TOP PICK.

Mark Van Hoen - Nightvision (CD, Saint Marie, Electronic)
Mark Van Hoen has been active for a very long time. He began his career in electronic music way back in 1981. Nightvision is a really cool moody album full of tasteful electronic sounds. The album is divided into ten tracks that flow seamlessly from one to the next. Van Hoen doesn't create music with sounds that will become dated. His compositions incorporate warm organic sounds that don't have a canned or trendy vibe. Unlike many electronic albums, Nightvision is for the most part surprisingly subtle and calming. And instead of being layered to death, these cuts use only the essential ingredients necessary in order to create the appropriate sound or mood. Mark is originally from England but now lives in Los Angeles, California. He's worked with some impressive underground icons over the past few years and continues to be a major contributor in the world of electronic music. Groovy tracks include "All For You," "Bring It Back," and "Sensing The Close."

The Wonder Revolution - The Magic World (CD, Air House, Progressive pop)
Sometimes some of the most amazing music comes from some of the most surprising places. If you like dreamy, mesmerizing pop...it just doesn't get much better than this. The Wonder Revolution is a music/art collective based in Wichita, Kansas that is spearheaded by David Lord (Francis Moss)..."the constant unifying force, serving as a sort of curator for the collective." This is the sixth release from the band and it continues on the path that previous releases set forth. Even though Lord (Moss) is based in Kansas, contributing musicians live in other areas of the United States and even overseas. The Magic World is a wonderfully satisfying collection of uniquely conceived modern pop creations that are purely driven by creativity. The album presents no less than twenty (!) tracks, and they're all totally warm and groovy. We've loved everything we've heard to date from The Wonder Revolution. And we're pleased to report that The Magic World just might be their best yet. The cuts on this album are super intelligent, ultimately cool and dreamy, and they have wonderfully magnetic reflective qualities that hold up spin after spin after spin. We just can't get enough of fantastic tracks like "Tearlandia," "Green Sea," "Budapest River," "Gnomeland," and "Fifi's World." Highly recommended. TOP PICK.

Stephen Young & The Union - Eagle Fort Rumble (CD, Ragged Company Recordings, Americana/pop/rock
It seems peculiar that more and more Americana bands are popping up in other countries around the world. But confusing or not, they're becoming more and more common as time goes by. Dublin, Ireland-based band Stephen Young & The Union write and record Americana pop with just a few threads of Ireland venturing into the mix. Recorded in a log cabin in rural Ireland, this must have been an intense time for the band because it resulted in one member leaving. Eagle Fort Rumble is apparently more of a band-driven album that the debut (Wilderness Machine). After spinning this one a few times, our guess is that folks in Ireland and the United States and beyond are going to get a major charge out of this one. Eleven solid cuts including "Shiver," "Lately I've Rescued A Rose," "Shadowman," and "Teardrops."
