Be Here Now; New Album Releases Snapshot Reviews 4-15-14

Sweet Percussion Heaven

Built On Glass – Chet Faker – Aussie trip hop mood guy and very very good as well. This album works as sonic sound ambient deep beats thing and works as song, song after song. I bet it sounds awesome with beats: it’s like the percussion reverberates in the back of your head while the songs settle in the front – ALBUM OF THE WEEK – B+

Ed Sheeran ft Pharrell Williams “SING” Reviewed

Sheeran

I love when Sheeran raps, and though he doesn’t quite get there in this tune, but gets really close. I love it. It has a definite Justin Timberlake-vibe, dancey and upbeat but complex and funky.

Fourteen Fine Tunes from 2014

Folkies

Rachael Price, the great granddaughter of Seventh Day Adventist leader George McCready Price, is a superb vocalist and this song has a ‘70s classic pop structure. This is a band that displays retro influences without smelling like a pet rock.

“Captain America The Winter Soldier” Reviewed

Marvin Gaye Remembered

It is an OK ride, lotsa action, some real emotion, but Chris just isn’t the Captain, he is the bratty Human Torch and it is a major piece of miscasting at the heart of the movie.

McCracken

I wasn’t sure if the acoustics in the venue were bad or the sound guy messed up, but I found that I was struggling to hear him. What I could make out was good, smooth and clear vocals that were worth struggling to hear. The man’s downfall was he was a bit arrogant.

Alternative Press Offers You “The 10 Commandments of Show Going”

thou shalt tip me for being me
