10 Songs: November 22nd, 2015

Baroness

1 – Shock Me – Baroness – A big proggy rocky barrel of riffs bouncing off the top off your head, it whirls in worlds of sounds and visions apparently still colorful and completely recovered from their van crash in 2012.

2 – Anticipation – Carly Simon – Any chance of her retrieving this from the ketchup commercial? – A

3 – Down – Brandyn Burnette – Proof that an industry upbringing (his dad is a muckety muck at Columbia) doesn’t necessarily disable you from recording soulful electronica – B

4 – Boys Can Never Tell – Shovels And Rope, J. Roddy  Walston – Popular married couple plus Walston on dodgy in the extreme folk flimsy – C-

5 – Numb – Nick Jonas, Angel Haze -The rap makes it all the way, not a surprise right? – B

6 – Forever – ILOVEMAKONNEN, Santigold, 1st – It takes awhile but this is an aural gift and it creeps up on you –

7 – Van Gogh – These Kids Wear Crowns – Canadian powerpop, a little obvious though the chorus is catchy and the bridge is even better than that  – B-

8 – Amor Limosnero – Calibre 50 – Sure, sounds like they are wandering from table to table at an outdoor Mexican restaurant… still dig the oompah and the accordion – B

9 – In Wonder – Punch Brothers – Dreadful, get on with it already – C-

10 – The Raid – Wafia – This years Lorde, but I ain’t gonna get caught looking this time. More singer songwriterly, less electrnic, but the same deep shakiness at his heart – A-
