Take Care, Take Care, Take Care by Explosions In The Sky

Take Care, Take Care, Take Care by Explosions In The Sky:

Editorial Review

On their fifth album, Take Care, Take Care, Take Care, Explosions In The Sky take some of their greatest creative leaps yet, experimenting with layers of haunting, unplaceable sounds, euphoric vocals, classical guitar, body percussion, Japanese singing bowls and more. Take Care, Take Care, Take Care is Explosions In The Sky’s most texturally diverse and emotionally dynamic album yet, and certainly their most masterfully crafted. It is perhaps the most emotionally arresting album by a band responsible for some of the most emotionally arresting music of the past decade.

Slumberland by Lee Dewyze

Tuesday, May 31st, 2011

Slumberland by Lee Dewyze:

Product Description

Chicago’s Lee DeWyze performs for over 30 million people each week on the most popular television show in the world, American Idol. Before Lee came to the attention of the hit-making franchise, he was a struggling musician working with a small Chicago label called Wuli Records, where he recorded his debut album, “So I’m Told” and the recently released “Slumberland” with producers Ryan McGuire and guitarist extraordinaire, Louis Svitek, well known for his work with Ministry, M.O.D., and Mind Funk. The collaboration is an evocative, haunting mix of multi-instrumental, multi-faceted songs whose artistry draws comparisons to Jack Johnson and Chris Martin. Now a Top Finalist, Lee is being hailed as the next daughtry, with praise from all the judges; Kara DioGuardi declared Lee’s voice was a good fit for “radio right now”, Ellen DeGeneres has called his performances “great”, and the hard to please Simon Cowell has declared that Lee was “the best singer” among the group of men and “may be the one to beat.”

So I’m Told by Lee Dewyze:

From CD Baby

Soulful, haunting and melodic are the drop words used to describe the music of Dewyze, but he hopes that the end product means so much more to listeners. He lives his life true to his music; his songs reflect his personal experiences but speak to all of us. Amongst the music genres of Folk, Emo, Pop, Rock, Alternative and Jazz there lies a space of sonic soundscape that Lee Dewyze inhabits. Known for his energetic and thought provoking performances of well crafted and hooky acoustic material, DeWyze is an artist driven to succeed.

Unfinished by Jordan Knight

Amazon Editorial Review:

While most recognizable as the lead singer of worldwide mega boy band New Kids On The Block – NKOTB, Jordan Knight has proven to be a force in his own right. After having multi-Platinum success with NKOTB and his Gold-selling solo-debut album in 1999, Jordan returned to the white hot spotlight with the 2007 NKOTB reunion #1 Pop Album The Block and the subsequent 3-year non-stop global sold out tour. Finally after much anticipation, Jordan Knight delivers his first solo album in nearly five years with the aptly titled Unfinished. Unfinished features 11 new tracks, including the exploding lead single Let’s Go Higher – an infectious, uptempo, pop smash written by hit songwriter Colby O Donis. (Lady Gaga, Akon).

Circuital by My Morning Jacket

Circuital by My Morning Jacket:
Editorial Review

My Morning Jacket, with almost 2 million albums sold worldwide and a previous Billboard #9 debut with 50,000 scanned first week, return with their sixth studio album, the stunning Circuital.

Circuital was recorded in Louisville, KY and Nashville, TN, and was co-produced by frontman Jim James and Tucker Martine (R.E.M., Sufjan Stevens, The Decemberists). The result is yet another reinvention of their sound that both forges new ground and maintains the distinct spirit of MMJ s previous work.

Z by My Morning Jacket:

Excerpt from Amazon reviewer Paul Allaer

“Z” (10 tracks; 47 min.) is a terrific, and challenging but oh so rewarding, follow-up to “It Still Moves”. The band expands its musical pallet, with some keyboards more up front, and even dipping into reggae. There is no weak track on the album. The opener “Wordless Chorus” is an off-beat appetizer, which gets filled by subsequent tracks. The best of the album is the reggae-flavored “Off The Record”, which simmers into a break-out jam towards the end, just great. No, this isn’t MMJ of “At Dawn” or “Tennessee Fire”, but hey guess what, the band is evolving (bringing Wilco to mind). Sign up for the journey. You won’t be disappointed! Other stand-out tracks include “What a Wonderful Man” (with great guitar licks from Jim James), and the closer “Dondants”, an epic 8+ min. tune.

The Best Of Ella Fitzgerald And Louis Armstrong On Verve:

Amazon.com essential recording

Ella Fitzgerald’s voice was satin to Louis Armstrong’s sandpaper, but when you put them together on a single song, their chemistry was unimpeachable. This album selects highlights from the three albums they made together at Verve (including their Porgy and Bess), and adds a spiffy live track from the Hollywood Bowl. Though they don’t harmonize much (Armstrong’s voice wasn’t built for harmony), Ella’s dignified swing and flashes of teasing wit play off Satchmo’s gritty, good-humored roar symbiotically. The material is mostly lightweight Tin Pan Alley stuff (lots of Gershwin, plus the likes of “I’ve Got My Love to Keep Me Warm”), and they fly it like a kite. –Douglas Wolk

Far by Regina Spektor:

Excerpt from Amazon reviewer M. Beard

It is rare these days to find an artist who can make a great album. Most manage to produce one or two good songs then fill the rest of the album with crap. Regina Spektor is one of those rare artists who can produce a real album where every song is a wonderful song… Regina’s voice is truly an instrument that she has fine-tuned and plays well. She is also a very accomplished pianist, not just someone who can pound out some catchy notes and a few chords. Her music is refreshing and unique, not top 40s candy-wrapper junk food. Her lyrics are deep, spiritual and poetic. She’s the Bob Dylan of our generation – except she has a good voice.
