Delivered in a classic style, this album recalls the popular success of peerless American jazz talent and fresh Bossa Nova rhythms that first fused in the '60's.
Ja delivers this material in Portuguese, Italian and English Carlson film Go Tigers! The tragic events of that time did nothing to help neither the film nor Carlson's record. Classically trained for opera, Carlson exudes technique on this album of radio-ready pop songs. Also a film and television actress, Carlson is surely well acquainted with ups and downs of show business and is already working on a sophomore release to include Goo Goo Dolls members and other musical guests This Irish singer has a rich voice and gives us dark, sincere tones and bright, glistening upper register singing.
Guitarist Tom Gavin joins Erin on this sophisticated folk-rock album Full of vigor and energy, thee songs are pure fun even when Marianne defiantly proclaims, "I'm not your layaway girlfriend.
Sung softly and sincerely, these are fine songs on the third album from a hard-working adolescent alt-folk artist charming her way with sad and celebratory love songs delivered with authenticity and melody There's a sad, majestic beauty to Nina Nastasia's songs, like a slow-moving distant funeral march against stark landscape.
This large, talented ensemble present varied and understated arrangements of cello, viola, accordion and more behind her dark and direct vocals and guitar Gothic darkwave electronica serves as the background to medieval-styled vocalist Regan providing a slow-melt dance track for fetishists public and private. These are a good starting point for appreciating the seductively sinister beat music Right off, Ellis takes the opportuntity to make available his 3 Pieces for Violin.
Around a tango theme, Ellis composed very rhythmic; entrancing music that Ellis admits is a deconstructed, transmogrified collage of tango elements. Created while musing about the floor-sounds made by tango dancers in a studio, this is the first solo release from Ellis who also performs in Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds.
The group actually initially formed briefly in London in This reunion album made over is an electro-folk effort with strange, primitive electronics, Album), a heavy metal heart and a bemusing, child-like sense of humor. Tentative, but not pensive, this reflective, impressionistic album is full of bright imagery supported by a sparse rock trio and gentle, rolling rhythms.
Trent Reznor's Nothing Records capitalizes on that success with two recordings. This continues the live aspect, featuring four NIN tracks recorded live, but especially "deconstructed. This funky East-meets-West fusion was a pioneer in the rising popularity of spirited klezmer music aimed at a wider audience. This was a successful, attention-getting disc for the group and features such special guests as Marc Ribot on electric guitar and the inimitable Moxy Fr? Two years after this release, the group followed up with Possessed.
This is more reflective, a more mature klezmer soul album that shows another facet of the sophisticated ensemble. Kushner also provided such moving, sephardic English lyrics as "Let us in! Let us tell you where we traveled How our hopes our lives unraveled How unwelcome everywhere we've been. Rounder Records re-issued both discs this year. It also brings to mind crossing boundaries, maybe even switching sides. Herrick has done both. Beginning life as a rail-riding hobo, Herrick developed an awareness of the plight of the downtrodden and eventually became not a member but employee of the American Communist Party.
Herrick was hard-working element of the Party and an able union organizer and cell initiator. Willing to put his life on the line in backing his Album), Herrick traveled to Spain with the Abraham Lincoln brigade to fight the fascists in the Spanish Civil War. Comintern, the International Communist Party, hoped this effort would lead to a home for Communism in Spain. While Herrick's soldiering was brief he quickly took a bulled to the neck, nearly crippling himthe Communist atrocities and double-dealing there made him see the Party in an entirely different light.
Returning to the States an anarchist at heart, Herrick had a wife to support and was tied to the Party for a paycheck. His outspokenness about the Stalin-Hitler pact led to his dismissal and his Massacre - Twitch (20) - Long Ride on a Short Bus (CD emergence as an anarcho-social democrat. Appearing in these pages as Herrick formalizes his distrust of all power is such figures as Emma Goldman, Cole Porter and Herrick's former employer Orson Welles.
This fascinating work is historically enlightening and a textbook in the formation of practical anarchism from an adventurer-author struck from the same mold as George Orwell. These were the years that also gave us the birth of psychedelic rock and these singers, while dulcet and innocent in voice, are swathed in heavy, beat music harder and more mysterious than vocal pop of today.
This was a productive time for girl groups and this disc collects such excellent material as Sylvan's death disc "We Don't Belong," Glenda Collins Meek's premier girl singer and the harmonies of the Scots singers in The McKinleys. All this and more is exquisite material crowded off the charts during a fertile period for girl group production. This collection culls together the most energetic, hard soul cuts to put together a mythical pure-funk album from the dynamic maestro of blue-eyed soul.
Toughening up the sound here is Jones' Massacre - Twitch (20) - Long Ride on a Short Bus (CD guitar hand, Big Jim Sullivan. This hard rock pioneer was tutor to Jimmy Page and Ritchie Blackmore gives the selections the necessary punch.
Jones' choice in soul covers - "Lodi," "Polk Salad Annie," "Venus," "Witch Queen of New Orleans" and more - show his knowledge of the obscure and the grinding potential of the popular. Parallel to Elvis Presley in his overt sexuality and his ability to incarnate electric blues styles, Tom Jones presents a charged sound experience on Loaded. Certainly skilled in production and arrangement, these songs breathe beyond technique to full-lunged deliveries from the entire body of underground sounds.
Darren Hayman, songwriter and organizing principle of this group referenced Joe Meek and Lee Perry as guiding spirits on this particular album. Thus we find joining their intelligent use of distorted guitars and tasteful horn harmonies, deep beats marking loping rhythms. Combined with their easy, even breezy, delivery, this collection of Hefner songs is a memorable and hallmark opus. These tracks came about during the recording of the third Mojave album.
Having broken with his girlfriend, Halstead ended up recording solo material while sleeping in the studio. Despite such a genesis, these tracks are not excessively maudlin. Halstead revisited the material over time with different musical friends and the material obviously brightened as it grew, thought there is plenty of the achey-breaky heart here.
Also, because these songs were done outside of a band setting and studio-borne, there is more done here production-wise to affect the final sound than other Halstead projects. There is also a less Americana feel than those other projects, though an English folk sound can be detected woven in with the healing, introspection and sonic experimentation.
However, the fun and free sounds bear a serious message. The theme of this album and delivered through the spoken word portion of this funky beat kaleidoscope is death row in America.
This recording includes a lengthy exploration of John Coltrane's "Love Supreme" through the arranging of guest keyboardist Dred Scott.
Black Cherry is also the first non-jazz release on AUM Fidelity, though it could not be said to be devoid of jazz. For, even as Organic Grooves bends the tones of the Parker-Drake sound, Organic Grooves adds in very jazzy keyboard and guitar lines.
Mixing well with Hamid's ethnic percussion, on Black Cherry the group trades in an "afro-cosmic" sound of rooted, electro-jazz sonic divination. The river at one point is entirely unlike the same body of water miles away.
On this blues compendium, Putumayo travels us up and down the river to hear the varied blues sounds that grew up along the banks of the mighty Mississip'. Known for some sophisticated electric blues of his own, harp master Junior Wells was born in Memphis and got his start in the same Arkansas stomping grounds. His contribution to this disc, "Come on in this House" is direct from the Delta. With that experience and accessibility, Eleanor creates a warm, personal independent recording and treats us to some of the violin playing that earned her a seat in the National Symphony Orchestra of Ireland.
Eleanor's poignant, folksy songwriting richly accented by Brain Connor on Steinway piano has previously been found suitable for production by Emmylou Harris, Marty Black and Phil Coulter and more. Full of accurate hooks expressive observations; Yola is fully matured folk-rock from a talented veteran. Coming Massacre - Twitch (20) - Long Ride on a Short Bus (CD the way from the bustling port and market town of Yokkaichi, Japan, Gasoline delivers primitive American rock-n-roll with all the screaming, over-modulated fury of the typhoons that have been known to strike Yokkaichi.
High priest of such potent garage rock Tim Kerr engineered the whole glorious mess at his Sweatbox Studios in Austin, Texas.
This captures Gasoline primed and ready to deliver their intense rock-n-roll on a summer tour to the U. Here they demonstrated the energy they were prepared to 'take to the people' in the promised land of unrestrained hard rock that they have so deeply incorporated. This electric nightmare blues mixes well with Jon Spencer and Speedball Baby. They form a smashing, effective core to this group, as they did in Poison In their unrestrained aural assault they blast through a number of explosive originals and a fiery but still joyfully rollicking version of Small Faces' "Happy Boys Happy.
This is sonic excitement. Central to the group is organizing principle and creative font guitarist Keir McDonald. With occasionally other musicians along, this disc opens asteroid-strong, but has sea-foam-delicate episodes, like the faintly Western "El Mar Caribe. Rod Stewart made "Reason To Believe" famous.
