2017 Honorable Mention Pick 7

Dead Ranch: Brumation (No List Records, 2017)

Regular readers know of my inner toil regarding heavy metal singers.  I don’t like the cavemen, nor do I like the epic and operatic high range classic metal singers.   131 more words

Music for 7/21/17!!! The Grape and the Grain, Umoja, Lafo Taylor and Aabo, Jeremy Pinnell

@@@ The Grape and the Grain: Holy Rollin’ (The Grape and the Grain, 2017)  If you’re looking for some sexy boy classic rock for your hot summer day these guys will hook you up.   469 more words

Music for 7/20/17!!! Nine Inch Nails, Rococo, Larissa Tandy, The Lemon Twigs

@@@ Nine Inch Nails: Less Than (The Null Corporation, 2017)  We won’t spend much time discussing that the leader of Nine Inch Nails is a senior executive at Apple Music (or was at it’s predecessor Beats) and his new track is in the first slot on the hot tracks section at Apple Music.   485 more words

Music for 7/17/17!!! Roberto Gonzalez, Gogol Bordello, The Jerry Cans, Waxahatchee

@@@ Roberto Gonzalez: Introducing (World Circuit, 2017)  Old school Cuban music off this week’s WRIR playlist email.  Gonzalez is the piano player and this is great, laid-back but rhythmically hip music to kick back and rock an artisanal pickle.   502 more words

Music for 7/16/17!!! Kesha, American Football

@@@ Kesha: Woman (Kemosabe, 2017)  Post sexual harassment Kesha returns with a feminist  banger that combines old school horn lines and cheesy mainstream soul pop.  For example, the beat has no crunk to it all and she seems intent on saying the word motherfucker more than anything else lyrically.   289 more words

Music for 7/14/17!!! Prins Thomas, Randall Bramblett, This is the Kit

@@@ Prins Thomas: Square One (Smalltown Supersound, 2017)  A left field electronic record I got to via last week’s All Music notable release email.  This first tune is not particularly left field as it opens up with a very straight beat and minimal kinda rock sounds on top of it.   379 more words

Music for 7/13/17!!! Human Potential, Lucky Boys Confusion, Between the Rain, Lola Marsh

@@@ Human Potential: Guilder (What Delicate Recordings, 2017)  A preview experimental electronic single that I got to from a music publicist email.  It begins well with a sparse bell sounding wave.   519 more words
