A little late, but The Raves continue to roll. Can’t let any of these albums escape into the wilderness.
Let’s round ’em up.
Seeing as I dig the retro soul with a modern twist, it should come as no surprise that I think this is Anderson.Paak’s best album yet.
Also, I used to live 45 minutes from Ventura. Goin’ back to Cali…
Part punk, all rock. And not entirely morbid.
Molly Tuttle – When You’re Ready
Ostensibly a bluegrass artist, Tuttle delivers a folk-pop gem. Plays a mean guitar, too.
The Mountain Goats – In League With Dragons
A little like Death Cab For Cutie if they were a 70’s soft rock band.
But with dragons.
(Except for the music of “Sicilian Crest,” which sounds like an early 80’s TV theme.)
