Dirty Shirley

This album took me by surprise. I knew almost nothing of this band. I can tell you that George Lynch is in this band, which, I believe is the reason that I took to it so quickly, but, perhaps it … Continue reading

Neumatic Parlo ~ All Purpose Slicer EP

This band sounds like they should come from the 1980’s. The music & singing is very melodic. “Optics” opens up this EP. The drums sound like a drum machine, but, they don’t. There is something in the sound that doesn’t … Continue reading

Long Distance Calling ~ How We Want To Live

This band is really good. Starting off with talking to set your album up doesn’t work for me, but, the music that followed the 1st track, was great. This is a really fine album. It seems Long Distance Calling gets … Continue reading

Karl Sterling ~ Dream

  This jazz artist took me by surprise as most of the music on this album was really peppy. I was expecting a bunch of improve, but, got songs that were very un-jazz like. The first song really reminded me … Continue reading
