Brent Cobb – Shine On Rainy Day

How many times are you pleasantly surprised when something is completely different than you thought it would be?  One of my favorite things about music is that you can spend your money on it and find out that it is completely different than your expectations and that is not a problem.   I saw Brent…

Deap Vally – Femejism

Do you ever find yourself torn between hoping that a band you like hits it big and wanting them to stay relatively unknown so that you can stay in the exclusive club of people who know they exist?  I find myself struggling with this dilemma occasionally. Deap Vally is one of those bands that I…

Ghost – Opus Eponymous

I love this damn evil band.  I love their style, their sound, and the full immersion into their concept.  The members of Ghost truly are artists. Opus Eponymous is the first and darkest of their three albums both lyrically and musically.  I am pretty sure spinning this album is a key part to opening the seventh…

Billy Ray Cyrus – Killing The Blues 

Would you sell your soul for fame and fortune?  It is easy to think that you wouldn’t do it; but imagine that you came face to face with Satan himself and he offered you a multi-million dollar recording contract, millions of record sales, worldwide tours, successful TV shows, and even more for your children.  That…

Tiger Army – V

Are you the friend in your group that introduces everyone else to new and different bands?  I find myself saying this phrase a lot: “if you like (insert band name here), then you should totally check out…”  I am sure it gets annoying sometimes, but I want my friends to know that there is a…

The Ting Tings – Sounds From Nowheresville 

Here is everything I know about The Ting Tings: At some point in my career I know that I played one of their songs on the radio as part of a new music feature.  That is it.  That is all I know.      However, that one song experience must have made an imprint on…

Pistol Annies – Annie Up

Have you ever had a dream so vivid that you have trouble determining what part was in your brain and what part, if any, was real?  I had that type of dream the other night.  In my dream Miranda Lambert and I had just started a new relationship.  She knew that I was married, but…

Ray Campi & His Rockabilly Rebels – Born To Rock

What are your goals when it comes to buying and collecting vinyl?  Do you want an extensive collection of first pressings? Do you seek out foreign versions of your favorites?  Do you try to have complete discographies?  Or do you just want to own good music?  My goal is morbid, but it is 100% the…

Pearl Jam – Live at Third Man Records 06.09.2016

Who is the band or artist that, no matter how many people love them, you just don’t get into?  You don’t dislike them, you just don’t fall all over them the way that most people do.  For me, it is Pearl Jam.   Don’t get me wrong; I have lots of respect for Pearl Jam…
