New Release Friday: Bronze Radio Return – Entertain You

Posted by Greg on Mar 8, 2019 in Music

EDITOR’S NOTE: This album was actually released at the end of February, but we had some hosting issues and the site was down for about two weeks. Alas, we are back online and here is a much overdue review of Bronze Radio Return’s very fun new album Entertain You.

One of our favorite bands over the past decade has been Connecticut’s Bronze Radio Return. The quartet has shifted over the years, moving from a snap-tight roots rock outfit to an air-tight synth-pop outfit. Their most recent album, Entertain You, is arguably their most commercial to date and will probably land the band many TV and film spots. Heck, their last single “Light Me Up” is still getting tons of TV play here in Florida as part of Advent Health’s latest TV commecial campaign. Read more…

Thursday Under the Covers

Posted by Greg on Mar 7, 2019 in Music

We’re a sucker for a good cover (heck our favorite book of 2017 was Ray Padgett’s Cover Me), so it’s only natural we’d share two that we’re quite fond of. Read more…

Le Vent du Nord’s Masterful New Album

Posted by Greg on Feb 22, 2019 in Music

Maybe we’re partial because we are fans of the violin or maybe it’s because the SITH headquarters is home to a violinist who is always playing reels and hymns. Either way, Territoires, the latest album by Quebec folk collective Le Vent du Nord is one of our favorite albums of the year. Read more…

Ariana Grande Continues to Soar

Posted by Greg on Feb 18, 2019 in Music

We’ll just go out and say it now. We’re not exactly fans of Ariana Grande over here at SITH headquarters. But we acknowledge good songs when we hear one. “thank u, next” is probably one of our favorite songs of 2019 and if her album is anything like that song, we’ll probably get our hands on it before the weekend.

New Release Friday: Terry Ohms’ Terryfirma

Posted by Greg on Jan 18, 2019 in Music

There’s no easy way to say this: Wes McDonald of Birmingham, AL is one odd duck. Performing under the name Terry Ohms since 2006, he has vacillated between fuzzy garage-rock and good-natured, Southern-tinged indie rock. Terryfirma (Jan. 19, 2018, Cornelius Chapel Records) is his latest release and arguably one of his best. While press notes indicate that McDonald considers Terryfirma his most fully realized Ohms record to date, it’s hard to think anything can top 2010’s What Do You Mean, What Do I Mean? . Read more…

Here’s to 2019!

Posted by Greg on Dec 31, 2018 in Op-Ed

We profusely apologize for the lack of content over the past two months. We have been up to our eyeballs in health woes, family woes and a new job. Hoping to post more frequently in 2019. For the first time in a few years, we are a bit late to posting our favorite albums and movies of 2018. But since it’s that time of year, here we go.

Our favorite song of the year is “Havana” by Camila Cabelo. Our album of the year is Kacey Musgraves’ Golden Hour and our favorite movie of 2018 is First Reformed. Our favorite TV show is Atypical on Netflix. Here’s a recap of 2018’s best from the Washington Post. We agree with their movie list, we have quite a few disagreements on their music, but so be it.

Happy New Year to all those who stopped by to visit this blog. Looking forward to more great music in the coming year.
