Already Dead by Timeshares

Album Review:

Another OneSideDummy artist is in the spotlight today. Sophomore release Already Dead by Timeshares is a solid follow up to even though it may not even sound like the same band. While starting off somewhat mellow, most of the album is the alternative punk sound to finish it off. As it is getting near the end of the month, this release may not be on sale much longer.

Ours Is Chrome by Superheaven

Album Review:

Ours Is Chrome is the second full length album from the band Superheaven (formally Daylight) released by Side One Dummy Records and is reminiscent of the Seattle grunge scene of the nineties. This consistent effort has hit a chord with fans of the Pennsylvanian band and recently dropped in price to just $3.99 making it the perfect time to see if Superheaven deserves a spot in your collection.

Released about two months ago, The Slow Light, the latest album from All India Radio is available on Vinyl or download and is currently on e of the featured $5.00 albums. The mellow music has a great feel to it and does a good job taking the listener to an almost relaxing point while simultaneously providing a some beat and tempo. Give this a quick sample listens and see what you think.

Album Review:

We like to feature the diamond in the rough from time to time and looking over the list of $5.00 offerings think we have on in Nameless Path by Marcus Foster. Released in 2011, Nameless showcases the talents of this UK artists and his ability to mix blues, folk, and alternative rock with some character. One of the best ways to experience it for yourself is to take a quick listen to the samples and see if his music strike a chord.

Patch The Sky by Bob Mould

Album Review:

It’s nice to see some recent releases find their way onto the $5.00 album list. Bob Mould (founding member of rock bands Hüsker Dü and Sugar) has been performing for over 35 years and his latest solo release Patch The Sky from Merge Records serves as the last album in a trilogy with Silver Age (Available for $9.49), and Beauty & Ruin (Available for $9.49). Originally considering writing an acoustic release, Bob Mould created an album with a darker tone and at times reminds me of the driving songs of the Foo Fighters. If you like good old Alternative rock , take a listen to this new gem from one of the best.
