Re: Red Warrior Needs Reviews Badly (Blue Woman Yes reviews)

Berkeley Social Scene - Love the opening guitar riff. Catchy Chorus. Great harmonized guitar solo! Ghost Pup - I like the jazzy guitar. It's hard to hear the rest of the band though. Even the vocals are a little lost behind that guitar. Glenn Case - Classic Glenn Case! I like the lead guitar part on...

Re: New Music Friday - 10/12/18

Checked out a few more new albums: Dodos - didn't grab me. I like one of their songs and enjoyed seeing them live one time, but overall just can't get into them. Watson Twins - Pleasant enough. BRONCHO, Bad Behavior - a little too mellow for me today John Grant, Love is Magic - weird and wonderful. ...

Re: New Music Friday - 10/12/18

I checked out some of these albums today... Elvis Costello - too jazzy for my taste. I thought with the Imposters, this would be more rock and roll. Parcels - didn't hold my attention. St. Vincent - love the piano only version of Pills. So good. Edie Brickell and New Bohemians - funkier than expecte...

Re: Free Plug ins

I'm not sure I totally understand this, but it looks like a free VST sample player call Labs, which allows you to use free sample sets that include strings, pianos, and drums. Check it out and see what you think: https://www.spitfireaudio.com/labs/

Re: Automatic songs, automatic reviews (Yes, You're A Robot reviews)

Berkeley Social Scene - the vocal melody kinda sinks this one for me, it just feels like it follows a very obvious pattern along with the chords. Maybe that's a deliberate attempt to sound robot-esque, but it's just feels uninspired to me. The bridge is cool though, the solo is good as ever, and I ...

I've watched this a couple of times now and am just very impressed with how weird/cute/catchy/warm/odd/interesting this performance is. Check it out if you haven't already:

Just listened to Van William - Countries and really liked it. Van was the leader of Port O'Brien and this is a solo album by him. Very enjoyable listen.

Re: SiriusXM buys Pandora for $3.5B

I imagine they try different stations and see if they pick up enough steam to keep. Maybe there aren't enough folks interested in listening to Yacht Rock specifically via satellite? I just switched to a yacht rock station on Amazon music instead.

Sirius just cancelled their Yacht Rock station, which was a bummer.

Re: New Music Friday - 9/21/18

Maybe the new Sha La Das record was too mellow for me this morning, but I'm not feeling it. I am howerver enjoying the new Slash album with Myles Kennedy on vocals. Some of the lyrics are dumb, but overall, the album is a fun listen.

Re: Look At The Awesome (Thin Air Reviews)

BSS - This is one of those songs that reminds me of a lot of stuff "Heroes" by David Bowie ... "Green Tambourine" by the Lemon Pipers ... I think I like the song more than the recording. It's one of these things where I'm not liking it as much as I feel like I ought to because i...

Re: New Music Friday - 9/14/18

The Low album wasn't what I was expecting at all. I'm not really familiar with all of their catalog, but it seemed out of character for them.
