Hear Ye: What rock nyc Is Listening To 12-12-13

Dio At Rest


























1. God Rest You Metal Gentlemen – Ronnie James Dio, Tony Iommi – Not only is this a timely reminder that, yes, in fact, Dio was in a league all his own, but it is a crackerjack classic brought to a ridiculously mature and powerful testament to Christmas – B+

2. West Coast – The Neighborhood – It may well be a goddam shame they are so West Coast but this is an effective new r&b ballad plus atmospheric indie production – B+

3. Better In The Dark – Say Lou Lou – Same indie production but the song is pretty and improves with listens… just a shame they didn’t push the chorus harder – B+

4. Lonesome Road Blues Studio Outtake – Eric Clapton – Gorgeous mellow blues, smooth snappy laid back – A

5. CHAMPIONSHIPWARRIORWARMUSIC – Fuzzy G – This track, just two minutes is beyond good, the background alone is unlike anything you’ve heard. A huge song – A

6. Whole Lotta Love – Led Zeppelin – Still their greatest cover, this is so big it changed rock and blues – A+

7. My Montgomery – Parmalee – The song isn’t terrible, but the chorus is dreadful – C+

8. I Feel Free – David Bowie – Excellent disco noise – A

9. Horchata – Vampire Weekends – This is something I didn’t really mention in my review of their gig, they can be very playful – A-

10. It Should Be Easy – Britney Spears – I kinda dismissed the album last week, but it has quite a few pleasant moments and this one with Will I Am is catchy dance pop, the synth bridge is very old fashioned but the song works – B-
