Roundin’ Up The Raves: Alestorm, Mura Masa, Nicole Atkins, Swarming Branch

Summer happy fun time interfered with my writing schedule last week. Damn you summer happy fun time!

Let’s round ’em up.

Alestorm – No Grave But The Sea

Did you know you needed pirate metal? Probably not. But there are times in all our lives, demarcations, after which nothing will ever be the same. There existed a period before Alestorm, and now … now things have changed.

Mura Masa – Mura Masa

Producer and guest vocalists make electromagic.

Nicole Atkins – Goodnight Rhonda Lee

Got a 60’s vibe here: a little Dusty Springfield, a little Patsy Cline, a little Nancy Sinatra. Can you dig it?

Swarming Branch – Surreal Number

I love off-kilter rock, especially if it doesn’t forget to be hook-filled, and occasionally, a little funky.
