By
February 21, 2012
Lambchop - Mr. M

If unusual, laid back music is your thing, you should give Lambchop’s latest release ‘Mr.M’ a listen — and their entire catalog for that matter. They remind me somewhat of the duo Mark-Almond. They also have some strong bass for such mellow tunes. “If Not I’ll Just Die” is a string soaked orchestral ditty...

It is time for music’s biggest night. This is the only awards show I pay attention to. If you are interested in many offbeat awards, you can monitor the lesser winners on the grammy.com website as it happens. I think Adele will do well and Lady Gaga will not. Look for Song of the...

Van Halen - A Different Kind of Truth

David Lee Roth is back in the line up on Van Halen’s new release A Different Kind of Truth, and this rocks! Some people don’t know what to think about the song “Tattoo”. It sounds like Van Halen to me. It will sneak up on you. “She’s the Woman” is a great rockin’ tune —...

Ringo Starr

By Kenneth E. Oquist Once you get over the fact this is under thirty minutes, you will like Ringo Starr’s new release Ringo 2012. “Step Lightly” is redone very well here. From Ringo (1973), this was the b-side of “Oh My My”. The beat had a lilt to it. It’s done quite a bit different...

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...

Missing the big Christmas music blast wasn’t a bad thing for Tim McGraw. With big name releases being few and far between early in the year, his new release ‘Emotional Traffic’ really stands out. I liked the title of this right away. “Felt Good on My Lips” has an interesting alternative guitar sound. One...

Song titles for the March 6th, 2012 release of Bruce Springsteen’s 17th studio album ‘Wrecking Ball’ are the new single “We Take Care of Our Own”, which sounds haunting — like a song from Springtsteen’s earlier releases ‘Born to Run’ or ‘Darkness on the Edge of Town’.
