Pat Benatar - Live from Earth
This live recording could well be considered as a tentative and completely expendable broadcast from planet earth, before proceeding to more thorough and enticing ones.
The Neville Brothers - Yellow Moon
The brothers looked forward to meeting the yellow moon in their native land when Daniel Lanois came to offer a new perspective which respected their roots but, at the same time, it helped them to grow new branches that turned towards that magical light.
Now that the spirit of the series has become more widely known, comes the third volume that follows with due loyalty the already established and non-negotiable terms.
King Krule - Space Heavy
Isolated in a moden, claustophobic construction, not too big and not too comfortable, Archy Marshall would be pleased to reconcile with his past, but, knowing he won't succeed, he opens the plastic box with his wounds, hoping they won't bleed again.
Prince - 20Ten
Second release through the press for Prince, perfumed with that 80's air that brings back blurred memories of another era, of another necessity, of another yearning.
Koko Taylor - What It Takes: The Chess Years
Discovered by Willie Dixon somewhere in Chicago, she was brought to Checker, a subsidiary of Chess, where she attacked the blues establishment with her soulful ferocity and her youthful ignorance.
Patrice Rushen - Patrice
Entitled with her first name, her fourth album marks a turning point for her career since it's her first for Elektra, it's more funky and less jazzy and it's a solid indication that she's expanding her talent.
Esperanza Spalding - Esperanza
She doesn't just wish for it, she knows that she is on the right path that will lead her to the acquisition of her musical identity, an identity that will simply say: Esperanza!
Everything But the Girl - Fuse
How did i miss Tracey's voice singing over Ben's melodies, but this fuse isn't exactly what I was waiting for more than two decades... so, I'm still missing Tracey's voice singing over Ben's melodies.
Hot Natured - Different Sides of the Sun
A promising british-american coalition between Jamie Jones and Lee Foss that failed to reach the sun and discover its different sides, remaining attached to an one-sided, house rhythmology..
Michael Kiwanuka - Home Again
What Michael Kiwanuka and Paul Butler managed to arrange is an imaginary meeting with Van Morrison and with Bill Withers, around an old, wooden table with a bottle of wine upon it and the sound of vintage soul sweetening the air.
Steve Harley - The Cockney Rebel: A Steve Harley Anthology
Steve Harley is indeep the Cockney Rebel who has not earned the recognition he deserves and this triple set that follows him throughout his whole career fights hard to restore his fame.
Marlena Shaw - Lookin' For Love
What is admirable about Marlena Shaw is her specific view of how to treat an old melody in order to create a desired fragrance that won't smell like a tourist trap ... and she's 62.
Steel Pulse - Smash Hits
From 1982 to 1986 Steel Pulse released three albums for Elektra, three albums of mild roots-reggae and as this collection testifies, they sacrificed their sharpness for an immediacy that would have given them a larger audience.
What a pity!
Slipknot - Iowa
Once they got to Iowa, Slipknot settled in an old nuclear shelter, where no light could be seen and no fresh air could enter and they started thrashing as loud as possible (and probably even louder), so that they use up the little oxygen and they end up suffocating.
Daniel Ash - Singles & Mixes
Although I suspect that Daniel Ash is the star behind the goth giants, his solo career wasn't that strong to support my opinion, nor this collection of remixes and b-sides can hint at anything similar.
The Pogues - The Pogues in Paris: 30th Anniversary Concert at the Olympia
It was the 11th and the 12th of september 2012, when the Pogues filled the Olympia in Paris to celebrate their 30th anniversary and, while everybody was wondering if Shane would manage to stay on his feet for the whole gig, he started singing about a pair of brown eyes and the crowd went crazy.
The Boomtown Rats - The Boomtown Rats
Something is changing in the music business and that wind reached Dublin, where the rats catch the echo of the surrounding tension and transform it into a efervescent debut, pretty charming in its unripeness.
The Godfathers - Alpha Beta Gamma Delta
After firing the previous members of the band, Peter Coyne recruited the new Gofdfathers and started learning them a new alphabet with an album which respects the rules of rock'n'roll classicism and goes its way, without causing any tension.
16 Horsepower - Yours Truly
The gloomy country-rockers wave goodbye with a representative portait which spans their whole career and is presented in two parts, the first one contains the people's choice and the second one consists of the rarities.
