Little Matador – Little Matador (2014)

mp3 320 kbps | 103 MB | UL | OB

Could there be a less enticing phrase than Snow Patrol side project? At least with Little Matador, guitarist Nathan Connolly doesn’t sound too much like he’s making music that mum can buy dad for his birthday. This debut album’s a half-hearted attempt to sound dangerous, with the Nine Inch Nails-go-folktronica stomp of ‘Gimme All You Got’ and the sleazy guitar grunts of ‘The Night’. ‘Liar Liar’ even recalls Idlewild at their punkiest, but there’s a shallow, souped-up steeliness surrounding each song that stinks of a songwriter trying too hard to seem edgy and failing. ‘Little Matador’ is a ballsy rock record for people who’ve never heard Queens Of The Stone Age.

Gunther Brown – Good Night For Daydreams (2014)

Gunther Brown’s music is earthy, eloquent and entirely honest. The band from Portland reminds one of early Jayhawks, with maybe a touch of Wilco. It’s Americana music, with roots that spread to folk, rock and old-time country.
