Writing about music is like dancing about architecture.
— Martin Mull
And yet, every week I continue to make the attempt. Excuse me while I foxtrot a rococo cathedral.
Let’s round ’em up.
The Queen Of Spades – The Recent Past
A modern take on 70’s hard rock and classic rock. Not enough bands are doing this. More please.
The musical style-jumping audacity of Prince with some smooth D’Angelo-inflected slow jams. Dude’s only 21. Future = bright.
If you’re going to sound like someone, sounding like Alex Chilton on Big Star’s second record is a pretty good choice.
JR JR – Invocations/Conversations
JR JR release a double album of gorgeous indie-pop.
