Adrian Belew : Elevator

Unless you’re in deep the music way, the name Adrian Belew might not ring a bell. Truth of the matter is that Adrian Belew was the secret weapon to the biggest names in music for the better part of nearly 5 decades; Frank Zappa, David Bowie, Talking Heads, Tom Tom Club, and Trent Reznor are […]

Tim Heidecker : High School

I never would have taken Tim Heidecker of Tim and Eric fame to have been such a prolific songwriter, but here we are with his third album in three years. With What The Brokenhearted Do and Fear Of Death, released 2019 and 2020 respectively, Heidecker showed he had a knack for classic singer/songwriter fare. Introspective […]

Then with Weather Systems there was a shift in his style. Leaving […]

Wilco : Cruel Country

Chicago’s native sons Wilco have returned after almost three years with a follow-up to their quiet, reflective 2019 album Ode To Joy. Cruel Country is yet another quiet, reflective album; songs that feel whispered by songsmith/singer Jeff Tweedy in hushed, breathy tones as if he’s recording songs next to a room where a small child […]

Long Story Short : Teeth Of Glass, Polypores, Night Sky Pulse, Boy Called Crow, Cat Temper, Sermons By The Devil

Greetings everyone. I’ve been a little under the weather the last week. One of those late spring/early summer head colds that began as allergies and evolved into something “more”. I’m on the mend, but taking it easy this weekend so I can get back to my daily walks and not feeling like complete garbage. One […]
