Ceremonials by Florence + The Machine

Thursday, November 29th, 2012

Album Review:

While it is possible that we will see Ceremonials by Florence + The Machine as a Deal of the Day sometime in the next month or two, a New Release of this caliber for about five bucks it too good not to post. Her first album Lungs (Available for $5.99) was so well received by fans and critics that expectations were set high for their sophomore release. Being able to build on past success and still re-invent yourself on new material has been the mark of great artists and Florence + The Machine is right on track. Ceremonials delivers great moving melodies, powerful beats and the great haunting vocals from Florence Welch.

In Between Dreams by Jack Johnson

From Amazon.com

For a man who gets his biggest kicks surfing the waves and strumming his guitar on a lonely beach in native Hawaii, singer-songwriter Jack Johnson has carved out quite a remarkable career on the mainland. His 2003 album, On and On, debuted at No. 3 on The Billboard 200 and subsequently went platinum on the back of hit single “The Horizon Has Been Defeated.” The follow-up, meanwhile, seems destined to shine even brighter. The drifting chords and soft voice are still in place, only now Johnson’s instinct for melody has sharpened alongside his ability to self-edit. These small concessions make third album, In Between Dreams, his most conspicuous, particularly on tracks like the three-minute relationship drama, “Sitting, Waiting, Wishing,” and “Breakdown,” a song he originally recorded for Handsome Boy Modeling School’s White People album remade here to reveal its full stripped-down loveliness. Imagine all the coconuts it will buy. — Aidin Vaziri

Christmas Pickins: A Banjo Christmas by Various artists

Album Review:

Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving. Even though I have already featured a little Christmas music, it is now officially time to feature it more often. The first of which is an interesting collection of 30 Christmas arrangements played on a Banjo in Christmas Pickins: A Banjo Christmas. Many of the songs you already know by heart but there are a few that might be unique to this set. The sound will make your holiday season feel like you are spending some time in the country with friends and family. Alright, there is no guarantee that you will feel this way but have a quick listen and decide for your self while it is featured for only $1.29.
