Arktik Lake: Shimmer

Arktik Lake: Shimmer

The slower, almost cinematic cowboy shuffle of “Hombre” follows. DC’s bass guitar keeps things together here, under Willson-Piper’s Dick-Dale single-note noodling. The keys that slip in add perfectly to the overall 60’s vibe of this wonderful instrumental. For me, it’s the best song on the Shimmer.

Marc-E: Catharsis

Marc-E: Catharsis

The overall effect of Catharsis is that the listener is well under the spell of a master musician/composer, who handles both the organic instruments as well as he does the electronic. 

Hasten Mercy: Hasten Mercy

Hasten Mercy: Hasten Mercy

This three-song EP is a grand old, ‘just the tip’ kind of a tease for wanting more from Hasten Mercy and Michael Baker. But this trio will surely get you on your way.

THE SEX FILES: A Tribute To Anne Rice

THE SEX FILES: A Tribute To Anne Rice

All good art is relatable to a broad human experience. This is why it touches so many and lasts so long. But not every artist’s story of creation relates. At that time, the Anne Rice/Anne Rampling interplay related to me personally and warmed my cockles. 

My Autumn Amor: Quiet Girl

My Autumn Amor: Quiet Girl

A picked acoustic runs underneath the vocal on the last tune here, “The Out.” Once this one gets snapping, we are in what sounds most to me like deep Cobain-like rendering with cool effects and a wavery key line. It’s a great song to end Quiet Girl, as we get some well-placed aggression, the other end of the spectrum of love emotions, to wrap up this EP perfectly. 

Beo String Quartet: Ghosts Revisited

Beo String Quartet: Ghosts Revisited

From classical masterpieces, contemporary pieces, and original progressive rock, the full range of Pittsburgh’s Beo String Quartet is impossible to label. Which is a very good thing, as far as I’m concerned.

Elliot Cole: Journals (vol. 1)

Elliot Cole: Journals (vol. 1)

It’s not every day we get to enjoy someone’s compositions when that someone is not playing any instrument creating the recording of that composition. But this is often eh classical way, and it is served well by a talented duo of players rendering Elliot Cole’s writing into reality.

Set the Night on Fire: Living, Dying, and Playing Guitar With the Doors

Set the Night on Fire: Living, Dying, and Playing Guitar With the Doors

I devoured Set the Night on Fire: Living, Dying, and Playing Guitar With the Doors. But I don’t think you need to be a Doors listener, a Krieger fan or even really all that much into rock and roll to enjoy this chronicle of a creative man’s history and his thoughts about life.
