Lena Fayre debut LP on wax

Lena Fayre debut LP on wax

After experiencing her first full length album, it’s obvious that Lena Fayre listens to a lot of modern radio and experiences a lot of sadness.  Put these two influences together and you have the main ingredients for the album “OKO.”  Starting off with a blatantly poppy, radio friendly electro sound, Lena then moves into more […]

Doon Womp by Opusoid: Vinyl Record Review

Doon Womp by Opusoid: Vinyl Record Review

This album challenges the ordinary expectations of sound. Opusoid, a multi-instrumental, improvisational performer creates music from the odd recesses of the mind, alluding to noises and experiences not commonly displayed in rock music, but highly emphasized in more experimental electronic music. In some way, with his guitar, loop pedals and beat makers, Opusoid traverses the […]

Live From The Burning Room by Brother Grand: Vinyl Record Review

Live From The Burning Room by Brother Grand: Vinyl Record Review

Full disclosure: I have a big soft spot for stringed instruments. The bigger, the better. And the April 2014 album from Feedbands includes one very large, very present upright bass. It’s just beautiful. The band, Brother Grand, is a duo consisting of two multi-instrumentalists, and this album, Live from the Burning Room, is, well, live […]

Mammoth Indigo by Mammoth Indigo: Vinyl Record Review

I might need to get another copy of this record because I’m pretty sure I’m going to wear down the grooves on this one way too quickly. I am in love. This self-titled album from a group called Mammoth Indigo is definitely a new favorite. They have elements that remind me of a lot of […]

Honcho Dreams by Be Calm Honcho: Vinyl Record Review

Honcho Dreams by Be Calm Honcho: Vinyl Record Review

May 2014’s album is Honcho Dreams by Be Calm Honcho (an odd name, but it works.) Their sound has a surf rock, jam band feel to it. Each song is carefully constructed, which I appreciate. There’s obvious talent, creativity, and intention. The album opens with an energetic, jolting riff—the repeating phrase in “Always My Fault.” […]

Variables by The Non-Commissioned Officers on Vinyl

Variables by The Non-Commissioned Officers on Vinyl

If ever you need to turn your life into a John Hughes movie montage (for…reasons), might I suggest the Non-Commissioned Officers’ Variables? This album is unapologetically upbeat and borderline disgustingly fun. You could do dishes to this album and it would be a party. In general, the album has a mid-late-90s vibe with some 60s […]

Light Up Your Lantern by Lynx on Vinyl

Light Up Your Lantern by Lynx on Vinyl

Light up Your Lantern by Lynx, is quite impressive. The songwriting is complex, the instrumentation is varied, the production value is high—this is quality stuff. Lynx’s overall sound is aptly self-described as “folktronica.” Indeed, with its banjos and violins supporting New Age lyrics, it’s quite folky. On the other hand, there are also synth elements similar […]

Starlight City Moans by The Sweep on Vinyl

Starlight City Moans by The Sweep on Vinyl

This next album from Feedbands, December 2013’s Starlight City Moans by The Sweep, reminds me of a previous release from Irish band The Parlez. In both cases, the music is relatively mellow, with a guitar-driven 90s-2000s vibe. And in both cases, I’m not quite sold, especially on the vocals. What’s interesting about the format of […]

Domezone Volume 1 by The Kansas Bible Company on Vinyl

Band: Kansas Bible Company Album: Domezone Vol 1: To the Surf through Rugged Waves Released: November 2013 Well now, this is fun. The November 2013 release from Feedbands is a compilation album from the Kansas Bible Company, a 12-piece (12-piece!) rock-with-a-horn-section group from Goshen, Indiana. And it is awesome. With 12 musicians, this group packs […]
