Marshall Crenshaw’s “Red Wine” EP Reviewed

“Red Wine” is where the superstar falls to earth. It isn’t by any stretch of the language a stinker, and one song, a cover, is among his best moments on the album in segments exercise, still it isn’t the best of the EPS either.

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+

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.

It is hard to believe such darkness can come from 12 year-old kids (I read that they are in 7th grade!), but frontboy Malcolm Brickhouse was playing a mean guitar while being scarier than Ozzy even in his younger days
