Last week something kind of important was released in the music world. Capital Punishment’s debut full-length Roadkill, originally released in 1982, finally saw a more proper release, courtesy of Captured Tracks. The name Capital Punishment might be new to you, but its drummer certainly isn’t. It is none other than Hollywood funny guy Ben Stiller. Read more…

David Nail’s Impressive New Album Out Today

Posted by Greg on Sep 14, 2018 in Music

We’re big fans of singer-songwriter David Nail and still remain baffled as to why he hasn’t garnered more accolades and fans. After four country albums with major labels, he is now an independent musician and today launches his new project, David Nail & The Well Ravens. The debut album Only This And Nothing More is a marked departure from his prior catalog. To put it simply, it sounds little, if anything, like modern country music. Read more…

Whoops, September began and we got quiet. Rest assured, it’s not for lack of desire. Alas, life has been a whirlwind these past couple weeks, but we’re back on track and ready to dive in.

We’ve long been fans of Brooklyn’s quirky funk-jam-pop outfit Rubblebucket, mostly because of their dynamic live show, but also because so many of their songs are downright magnetic. The band’s latest album Sun Machine is out now and just might be their best album to date. Read more…

Artist of the Day: Ron Bultongez

We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again: we love radio pop. So it’s no surprise that this blog loves American Idol, yes even the horribly adequate version that ABC recently premiered. One of our favorites from that debut season was Texas singer-songwriter Ron Bultongez. We were certainly hoping he’d advance to the finals, but as often happens on the show, the best don’t always win. Read more…

Band of the Week: Blue October

Posted by Greg on Aug 24, 2018 in Music

On their ninth album, Houston, TX’s Blue October has found a peace and a calm and that end result has made all the difference. From front to back, I Hope You’re Happy, is a stirring work of grandeur, poetry and an abundance of charm. From the lush and cinematic opener “Daylight” to the R&B-infused “Your Love is Like a Car Crash,” the album opens with a magnetic pull that’s as strong as any album released so far this month. Vocalist Justin Furstenfeld has always had a knack for tenderness and vulnerability but he wears it as well as he ever has on “Your Love is Like a Car Crash,” which darn well better make a dent before the year is over.

Looking Back: 2003 – Wheat’s Per Second, Per Second, Per Second…Every Second

Posted by Greg on Aug 24, 2018 in Music

With the latter days of summer now upon us, we thought we’d take some time to revisit our favorite summer album. As our previous post about Hootie and the Blowfish indicated, we are unabashed radio-rock fans. And no band pulled off radio-rock in 2003 better than Boston’s Wheat.

Artist of the Day: The Blue Dahlia

Posted by Greg on Aug 15, 2018 in Music

Last week, Dahlia Dumont, who performs under the moniker The Blue Dahlia, released her sophomore album La Tradition Americaine. Featuring her airy and jaunty ukelele playing, the album is a cornucopia of emotions and one that signals the arrival of an inspired and novel singer-songwriter. Born and raised in Brooklyn to a French family, Dumont is adept at singing in both French and English. Read more…
