May 26, 2013 - It Rock And Roll
 

Day: May 26, 2013

coldWhat a complex experience this is, modern poetry set in the back seat of a roaring rock ‘n’ roll muscle car. The effect, as Cavalcade unfolds, is at first very visceral and then deeply illuminating.
Cold Satellite leader Jeffrey Foucault has given over the lyric writing to contemporary poet Lisa Olstein, whose latest collection Little Stranger will see concurrent release on Copper Canyon Press. Yet Cavalcade — due May 21, 2013 from Signature Sounds — couldn’t be further away from the hippie-dippy expectations that follow such high-concept projects.
Instead, Foucault and a lean, tough group that includes Billy Conway (of Morphine) on drums and David Goodrich (of the Chris Smither group) on guitar play with a direct, bloody-knuckled fury. It’s not until the initial two tracks — “Elegy” and “Necessary Monsters” — have blown your hair straight back that Cold Satellite stops for a quick exhalation in the form of the title track and “Careless Flame.” Even there, however, the songs are hardened, countrified ruminations in the style of the Rolling Stones’ Exile period.

DOUGDoug Balmain is a singer/songwriter from Wyoming who expresses his music through a combination of red dirt country, rock ‘n roll, and blues with his own Americana influences giving him his very own unique sound.This album is a refreshing collection of genuine music. His music covers a wide range from up beat dancing songs to slower lyrical pieces, as well as an acoustic number,a mix with Mumford and Son, Old Crow Medicine Show, Rolling Stones and others and we listen to it through out the day. It is a great album to have and listen to no matter if you’re driving, around the house, or relaxing in the evening.

SEEOn ‘Mystery Drug’ The Hawks explore the hyphen separating Alt. and Country, often lazily described as Americana. Their ability to anchor themselves in traditional musical forms while simultaneously exploring unexpected territories makes them different from the norm.
The L.A. based band make every lyric and nuance count, mainly via Rob Waller’s trad-  country baritone which often disguises perceptive and humorous lyrics to make them sound like a cowboy song. Conversely MOR country songs find new layers of substance and meaning via rich harmonies and delicate instrumentation.

mr dThis album has a real 70′s country sound to it with the Eagles being the first band that springs to mind especially on Island Girl, as an influence, also maybe some Byrds too. If you wanted a more modern day comparison you would perhaps look towards The Thrills. His soft gentle vocals are kept at  just the right level to compliment the lush acoustic melodies which are maintianed from start to finish and even the instrumental Ode to Geraldine keeps you interested with it’s heavier bass line, Strings and some great acoustic guitar work.
