Joe Sampson “Chansons de Parade” Reviewed at Music Won’t Save You

In the sequel of songs that follow in an agile parade, there are some of the most vibrant harmonic structures, accompanied by more definite dynamics (“Gown” and especially “Otherwise The Pull”), but all of them Characterized by an extraordinary naturalness of writing and interpretation, that of a craftsman of songs able to create small wonders that, while being made up of those same elements, travalicano of momentum every cliché of the songwriter guitar and voice.

Craig Hallsworth “What’s The Story With This Hole?” Reviewed at Luna Kafe

Hallsworth’s songs has a certain glow and warmth, as this is poppy, melodic guitar rock with elegance and a human touch. Plain, neat pop songs. Period. When checking out “We’re Too Far Away…”, I compared the song’s atmosphere and attitude with some of the Kiwi rock from the Flying Nun label years back. Another reference could be the power-pop of Matthew Sweet, but maybe also The dB’s, Velvet Crush, my old fave Tall Grass Captains of Greater Chicago and several others.

Slow Dancing Society “The Wagers of Love and Their Songs from the Witching Hour” Reviewed at Hypnagogue

There’s so much to listen to on The Wagers of Love…, and all of it’s good. Is 19 tracks a little exorbitant? Maybe, and some listeners may not prefer to take in so much of Sullivan’s signature style all at once–there is the risk of sameness. Personally, I can never get enough of this sound, and I think there’s enough variation and playing with the core idea to keep it from getting stale. Deep down, I think what you’re hearing is the sound of a talented musician really, really enjoying himself. I believe you’ll enjoy it, too. A lot.

Slow Dancing Society ‘Radiance’ Reviewed at The Sunday Experience

A passing posting notifying us that Slow Dancing Society’s ‘the sound of lights when dim’ is shortly due for re-release with this 2006 gem being treated not only to a full remastering treatment but additionally arriving accompanied and extended by the inclusion of some very tasty remixes, one of which by Antonymes having, as it happens, hooked itself upon our lobes. This defrosting beauty peels away all daintily frost weaved and adored in a fragile statuesque tracing both tender and alluring whilst somewhat steeled and stilled in an ethereal toning that’s incubated in a wide eyed longing.
