Last Call: Final Songs Off New Albums 6-17-16 – 6-23-16


Machine – The Tragically Hip – AT first glance this is an odd choice, a Lou Reed soundalike, to end their career. But it is actually an “A.I.” dream of immortality – B

Dreams Of A Samurai – Ed Hot Chili Peppers – Admittedly, I’m not a fan but I am not a hater either, so how anybody can rate this album is way beyond. This piano based quasi-ennio Morricone intro to same old same old, is nothing at all – C

A Burning Hill – Mitski – Spin dubbed the album this is off their album of their week, I didn’t but to be fair, every time I listen to it I love it more. This is a quietly clever outro – B+

Phenomenal Woman – Laura Mvula – A thumping self portrait or maybe woman feel good track, the synth background is like a deep harmony and the flute a thing of beauty – B+

Hold On You – Jake Bugg – I’ll take the blame, it might well be me, because I dislike everything this guy does, this is awful, you can’t throw it out the window fast enough – D

Georgia Stars – Case/Langs/Veirs – What a terrible song, an awful country blues and like most things on the album, over uses Case at the expense of Lang – C-

Inspire The Empathic – Bassnectar – The ending of the ending is lovely, but it isn’t enough in the end – B
