Here’s a twist, howzabout some EP’s to whet your palette, and then an onslaught of incredible covers? How does that hit ya, grandpa?????
Always good to hear new music by Ash, even if it is covers! They bring their unique sound to some classic songs, some familiar, others not as much. It is a fun departure and worth the price of admission!
Suited Up and Ready EP
Ah yes, the Mavericks are back, and as good as ever. Their signature sound is all present here, and this preview of the new album bodes very well for that. I for one am very excited to hear that later this year!
Love Lost For Blood Lust (Part I)
Another great return! I thought Bobgoblin was all but gone, leaving the path open for Adventures of Jet to take over, but it turns our Bobgoblin was bubbling along all the while, lying in wait for the attack! And what an attack, the first of a couple EP’s, this had me remembering back to when I first heard about these crazy kids!
The 88 have been kind of staying under the radar, but always deliver fantastic music. It is imaginative, engaging and powerful music. This EP highlights the best of what they do, driving rhythms, telling stories, and singing in that weird but wonderful way. Keep it up!
S.O.O.P. #5 – Songs of Other People
More great covers from Michael Carpenter and friends. Each track features another great singer from all over the world. This international affair makes for a varied and fun album. Gotta love the Hollies cover, and really any of them are great songs you will want to play again and again.
