Leon Russell: Self-Titled

With 50 spam accounts created in the last week alone, the Trump dynasty is proving to be massively successful for PT. In so much as we enjoy being covered in bullshit. Speaking of being covered in bullshit, does anyone else…

Paint Your Wagon: Broadway to Hollywood

In 1951, while humanity vicariously ventured to the heights of the universe, under the wand’rin’ stars it’s terrestrial half constructed the heart and soul of one of the most influential moments in entertainment history which would ultimately define 1969 as…

Ladysmith Black Mambazo: Always With Us

Paul Simon‘s one-and-only Graceland is the defining album of my childhood. More than any other music, those 11 tracks transport me back to our rickety Volkswagen bus: the brothers “grab-assing” as we slowly traversed the arid Central Valley – Yosemite…

Crover, Plummer, & Willis: Hew Time

It was 1952 when jazz impresario Norman Granz (founder of Verve records) recruited Gene Krupa to join Buddy Rich in his long running Jazz at the Philharmonic series. After the two played together for a few months, Granz envisioned a captivating…

The Colourist: The Colourist

The day has finally come: the first Colourist album is here. Fresh and more polished than their Lido EP, their first full length album is sonically poignant – a return to the hard rocking days of the 70s & 80s without…

Another announcement of a future release arrived in the mail – a postcard that would make Kirocknroll/ShuaibaJ proud – this time from Kishi Bashi.  It read:…

Mark Mothersbaugh: The Lego Movie

Everything is Awesome, except maybe that song. Maybe. With stunning stop-motion-esque digital animation, almost every Lego character we know and love, comes to live with the same yellow-headed always-happy-go-lucky personas we’ve manufactured for ourselves. The world abounds with serialized parts,…

Busman’s Holiday: A Long Goodbye

A recent announcement by Joyful Noise Recordings has me excitedly checking the mailbox.  A new album by Busman’s Holiday is on it’s way. Entitled A Long Goodbye, the album isn’t out until April 1st (just kidding). Seriously, it will be…

Lady Lamb the Beekeeper

Every once in a while, I avoid the cat videos and strange stories about human deformity on YouTube, and stumble upon some great new music. As a beekeeper myself, I couldn’t help but be drawn to her band name, Lady…

The Head And The Heart

My six-year old friend turned me onto The Head and The Heart this week and I’m satisfied.  Then I learned they’ve been around since 2009; seems word within the kindergarten circuit isn’t as quick as I’d expected. The Head and The…

Newton Faulkner: Gone In The Morning

My recent search for Sailing Naked turned up a great deal of porn. … I’d really really like that to be the extent of my post, but alas, this is about introducing a well known up-n-coming (or going); Newton Faulkner.…

Clem Snide: We Leave Only Ashes

Another great album to listen to during your weekend post weekend: New work by Eef Barzelay / Clem Snide, We Leave Only Ashes.…
