It’s A Beautiful Day – Live At The Fillmore ’68

15-Aug-18

★★☆☆☆ = Eh, fine What’s it sound like? Lively 60s rock band (think dead and the band) with strings. Thoughts It’s OK but overall they aren’t up to their peers. I think this would’ve been a blast live but doesn’t hold up to the test of time. More Info https://www.discogs.com/Its-A-Beautiful-Day-Live-At-The-Fillmore-68/release/6294763 Listen!

Pinegrove – Everything So Far

16-Jul-18

★★★★★ = Classic, essential listening What’s it sound like? Alt rock, has a 90s vibe to it. Thoughts Personal favorite band of mine.

Nico – Chelsea Girl

27-Jun-18

★★★★☆ = Quality release and suggested listening What’s it sound like? Folksy 60s new York singer songwriter with dramatic string arrangements. No bass or percussion, Nico’s distinct voice is at the center of it all, singing lyrics about friends, life, change, stories of new york (especially convincing considering she didn’t write any of the lyrics).

Campfire Songs – Campfire Songs

10-May-18

★★★★☆ = Quality release and suggested listening What’s it sound like? Avantgarde campfire sing-along Thoughts An album to get lost in and wonderful introduction to the band.
