In an attempt to listen to every CD that hits my desk, I try to review 10 CDs in 10 words each on Fridays... Here's the latest addition:
Glossary Feral Fire — Band’s sixth album fueled by r&b, country with rock hints.
Creature with the Atom Brain Transylvania — Vintage garage rockers sound kinda like Queens of Stone Age.
Shining Black Jazz — Norwegian quintet creates pummeling metal riffs, grooves fused with jazz.
Nick Jonas & The Administration Who I Am — It’s too soon to be accepted by people over 16…
Suzi Ragsdale Less of the Same — Double-CD includes recent songs, others written over her career.
Lionel Loueke Mwaliko — West African influence swarms guitarist’s jazzy second Blue Note album.
Phantogram Eyelid Movies — Duo creates uniquely-styled tunes… I dub thee “electro shoegaze.”
Cuddle Magic Picture — Eclectic mix of instruments creates chamber folk… it’s definitely different.
PJ Morton Walk Alone — Grammy-winning musician releases soulful, weak-in-the-vocals album.
Luther Allison Songs from the Road — Double-live CD/DVD documents blues guitarists last live performance.
