Highbeams: Keep Meaning It

Highbeams: Keep Meaning It

“Either Way” gets going in a way very few here do, snapping along, truly Americana poppy and just this side of almost too noisy in the production…its wonderful cacophony. And “Window, f. Jenny and Sky,” the song that ends the album, is a back and forth acoustic dripping sorry-for-myself tune. Again the harmonies are just too perfect really and we go out nice and soft with Jenny and Sky lending their female vocal harmonies into the mix to end Keep Meaning It truly like the Highbeams mean to…perfectly.

Cher: Dancing Queen

Cher: Dancing Queen

There is no denying that these ABBA tunes are great. Better pop tunes might not have ever been written actually. And having an icon of Cher’s status wailing round these, even with the over use of Auto-Tune, makes Dancing Queen a fun listen. The lady isn’t breaking any new ground with these versions, but it’s Cher-does ABBA, what more do you need?

Lenny Kravitz: Raise Vibration

Lenny Kravitz: Raise Vibration

On his 11th studio album, Raise Vibration we once again Lenny Kravitz smashing through with positive messages and defiant stance in heavy rock and roll funk tunes. Opening with the trash-beat, sing-able chorus of funky rocker “We Can Get it Together” into a decidedly 70’s funk groove of “Low,” mostly with Kravitz singing over a drum backing on the verses, we get into the groove early here.

A “911, what’s your emergency?” questions opens The League of One’s latest, Dispatch. Here we get the trio of Will Maeder, singing and playing guitar, The “Rev” on bass and lending his backing vocals and Billy Grant manning the drums, hitting straight and true the trio certainly influenced by lots of great heavy rockers gone before them.
