What’s Christmas without #KFC ?! Found this at Goodwill last year for 50 cents or so. Bought it obviously for the cover, but it isn’t bad and an interesting 1968 compilation. Highlights are the songs from Chet Atkins and Lana Cantrell.
Norma Jean’s new offering has songs filled with both lyrical and sonic lucid imagery that I’ve been able to relate to. Take for instance the opening track “Orphan Twin” with its uncomfortable, haunting repetitive words expressed through different vocal styles.. melodic, strained, to screaming… “It’s not like you to pretend”. Or “Safety Last” with it’s first line, “I’ll burn every bridge in the world”. I don’t think there’s ever been a time in anyone’s life where they didn’t want to just take that match and destroy everything they know just to start over again… because the feeling of being “infinitely bankrupt” by circumstances and people is taxing on any kind of growth.. which is further supported by “Landslide Defeater”’s haunting melody in the bridge where the lyrics allude to self destruction to numb the harrowing things that may plague our minds in the middle of a weakened cognitive moment. “Trace Levels of Dystopia” quenches the thirst for bitterness while “Translational” is a bit of twisted hope. “Careen” scratches my itch for the irritation gathered by confusion and wanting to let go. “Anna” is reality. The acceptance of it, and the hope in whatever keeps you moving forward. This 8th full length by #NormaJean continues the path of brilliant art in a genre where fresh ideas are few and far between, further solidifying their legacy and one of the underground’s mainstays. “All Hail” indeed…

Next up on our Tom Waits tribute album is sister duo Shelby Lynne and Allison Moorer's beautifully lilting cover of "Ol' 55." Their voices harmonizing just make us so happy, and we know you'll love this version.
One of many brilliant Aussie albums we heard this year - this quartet of sisters from Melbourne are really breaking the mould. With a classic sound which evolves rather than copies the chops of classic 70s rock, a killer synth player and haunting vocals, this is surely one of the best bands around right now! ~ Will

I'm not saying this is an Atmospheric Death Metal album....but it is an Atmospheric Death Metal album and a very effective one. Still a relatively new album for me, I am about 4 times through it so far and while many of the mechanics of the album are easy to point to as a reference to Nile or Behemoth or insert Band here, the album has an effective atmosphere about it that easily detracts influence from band originality. That is to say the sound is not hard to point to as the namesake of the Band who wrote and recorded "Starspawn" in 2016 and ended up in many top 10 lists of that year. Interesting interstellar time warp revealed, I was a bit stunned to realize, after thinking how short this album is in length, that it actually runs a full minute longer than the debut album. That, although it is simply not required for the conclusion, tells me just how lost I get in this album when it plays. It's definitely been effective at transforming thoughts into relaxation even when I realize just how massive and behemoth their sound is, it's got some very intense musical patterns and yet it tends to sooth rather than cause rage. Wish it was longer though, the writers seemed to be well onto some very creative energies, wish they had continued to follow that through for a couple more songs. .
I missed getting Pearl Jam’s MTV Unplugged last Black Friday, but I was lucky enough to find a copy of this RSD exclusive at a decent price. Giving this a spin and enjoying this awesome set from early PJ 🤘
