“Beautiful Friction” by The Fixx

Beautiful Friction is an eclectic collection of thoughts using the instrumental roots of the band to portray them. This will be the 10th studio album for The Fixx, but they have stayed close to their ’80s pop tendencies. There is always that dreamy scenery with a more abrupt foreground. The familiarity of this style is [...]

“Just Tell Me That You Want Me”

Let’s be honest; a tribute album is really easy to get wrong. Whether it be The String Quartet Tribute to Limp Bizkit or Harptallica: A Tribute, fans who are musicians themselves can easily get carried away in their enthusiasm for another artist and miss the feel and excitement of the music altogether. Fortunately, that is not [...]

“One Lovely Day” by Citizen Cope

Clarence Greenwood is at it again, producing yet another completely likeable album that will translate excellently on stage. In 2010 he ditched major labels altogether and independently recorded and produced The Rainwater LP under his own label, Rainwater Recordings. One Lovely Day, his new full-length album released only two years later, is quite the feat [...]

“Unpatterns” by Simian Mobile Disco

Simian Mobile Disco, the British ‘fidget-house’ DJ duo, just released their newest album, Unpatterns, in late May. The duo, which consists of James Ford and Jas Shaw (members of the former Brit-rock group Simian), first got their start DJ-ing small club gigs with a portable rack of analog equipment. Their debut LP Attack Decay Sustain [...]

“Broken Brights” by Angus Stone

Angus Stone, the male half of Angus and Julia Stone, recently released his sophomore solo album, Broken Brights. Stone’s music career first started picking up when he worked with his sister as Angus and Julia Stone. The Australian duo released two albums together, A Book Like This (2007) and Down the Way (2010). Both albums [...]

“Instinct” by Niki & The Dove

Niki & The Dove have certainly proved themselves something to be aware of this upcoming year. The Swedish trio had only banded together in 2010 and already have an LP with Sub Pop records. Amongst all of the electronic that has seemed to already dripped into many genres and done over many times, it is [...]

“Swing Lo Magellan” by the Dirty Projectors

The buzz surrounding the Dirty Projectors latest album Swing Lo Magellan, which follows 2009’s Bitte Orca, is that it is the band’s attempt at an album that is more accessible to audiences. The main result is that many of the songs are laid back and toned down. However, Swing Lo Magellan lacks songs that are [...]

“The Soul Sessions Vol. 2″ by Joss Stone

UK-born soul singer Joss Stone first rose to fame in 2003 with her debut album The Soul Sessions, an album that awarded her multi-platinum status and a spot on the 2004 Mercury Prize shortlist. Now nine years later, Stone is still big on the soul music scene with her sixth album, a follow up to [...]

“The Idler Wheel…” by Fiona Apple

Fiona Apple’s name has become synonymous with independent music as we know it today—since her auspicious debut in 1996, the singer has become a figurehead for the found music sound and a first-person, exceedingly personal style that continues today. However, Apple barely knows how much she has affected the genre; in a recent interview, she [...]
