Musical Stocking Stuffers — Obscure Classics — Single Song Recommendations

If you only hear one Duke Robillard song, make it the lilting “Pony Blues” — my favorite song by a great musician that should be bigger. The Band’s “Christmas Must Be Tonight” as heard on Sirius XM Radio’s Holly channel is another must have. “Grim Travelers” is an excellent song you probably never heard...

Green Day’s ‘Dos!’ is Another Winner

Although not award winning in the album artwork department, the second of three Green Day releases is for the 2012 Holiday season a very solid 4 1/2 star essential Green Day. “Amy” finds Billy Joe with a stripped down ballad with vocals and a echo mellow guitar. This minimalist sound shows incredible depth. How...

Taylor Swift – ‘Red’: A Review

“We Are Never Ever Gettting Back Together” explodes of moving on big time. Big hit, great song. What else do we have here?  ”22″ is the do it all and see what happens song. This will have mixed results at best. More rock than country here. “Treacherous” is more laid back, but the edge...

Cowboy Junkies - The Wilderness

The song “F%#k I Hate the Cold” buried at the end of the Cowboy Junkies new release, The Wilderness, is arguably the best song ever done by the long time Alternative Country artists from the Great White North. Having grown up in Minnesota, this hits the nail on the head big time! This is...

Acoustic Research AWD205 2.4 Ghz Wireless Headphones

The only downside to Acoustic Research’s AWD205 2.4 Ghz Wireless Headphones is that the base has to be plugged in. The AWD205 headphones are light and features a generously long 3.5 mm plug for the music source. The range is 150 feet, and not an exaggeration. The phones are light and generously padded for their...

Dia Frampton - Red

If January is weighing heavy on you, perhaps you should lighten the load with Dia Frampton. I had her new release ‘Red’ on the back burner, but when I heard  it, I wanted to analyze this further.  Move this up on the playlist in a hurry if you know what is good for you....

Song Ideas

Here are some song ideas I feel should be written. “Wardrobe Failure”.  I  am very confident this is self explanatory. I mean let’s get real here. “Your Love Affair is a Train Wreck”. I don’t think this needs too much explaining. “You and Her Are Him and Hurricane”. No chaos or bad feelings are...

Sublime With Rome

  With releases stacking to the moon, after a quick listen to Sublime With Rome’s new release ’Yours Truly’ I was definitely not disappointed. My first impression finds them less edgy and their new release seems more likely to have some major interest because of its “more accessible to the masses” Pop sound. This is...

Arctic Monkeys - Suck it and See

The latest release from Arctic Monkeys ‘Suck it and See’ starts out with “She’s Thunderstorms”. This is a good song, but the lead guitar is what really makes this one interesting. “Black Treacle” has some intriguing lead guitar and a drum beat that does not disappoint. This is another really strong cut. “Brick by...
