A Kindred Spirit

November 19, 2010

I only review albums, EPs, films, and websites that I like, my reviews just reflect my ‘level of likeness’.  Unfortunately, the submissions over the past month have been an extraordinary let down.  Thank God this came in the mail…

With band members from Laura Veirs, Sufjan Stevens, Richard Buckner, Gary Newcomb, Robert Palmer, Steve Winwood, Bill Callahan, and Tift Merritt, your bound to get something, at the least, very interesting and worth hearing.  This is definitely worth hearing.

Jenny Gillespie’s full length ‘Kindred’ is one of those albums that you can’t expect anything from, you don’t need to envision a certain sound when you see pictures of her, read about her, or look at her album cover.  Just let the music do the talking.

We’re behind this record all the way!  And it keeps getting better with every spin!

LoveSound Rating – 7/10

Favorite Tracks – ‘Swimming In Amber’ & ‘In The Garden’

Doctors & Dealers & Holy Sh*t!!!

November 19, 2010

Finally, a record that sounds as cool as the cover looks…

There is too much to say about Doctors & Dealers new EP entitled ‘Trouble’.  But I’m at a loss for words..

‘Trouble’ is the prequel to a full length album due to be released in early 2011.  I say, the earlier the better.  Written by the obviously way over-talented Sparrow Lindgren and produced by Gordon Raphael (Regina Spektor, The Strokes, to name a couple), you can tell there was a specific ‘direction’ they were aiming for…. a direction that only few can pull off.  When I listen, I’m suddenly in the 1920’s….the prohibition era.

I absolutely cannot wait for the full album.

LoveSound Rating – 9/10

Favorite Tracks – ‘Trouble’ & ‘Backstabber’
