REVIEW: Lord Huron - Lonesome Dreams

Recently, indie rock and folk music lines have been continually blurred by bands such as Bon Iver, Mumford & Sons, and Fleet Foxes. Lord Huron continues down that path with their debut album, showcasing a dreamy blend of indie rock and folk music that is reminiscent of bands like Death Cab For Cutie and My Morning Jacket, among others. The music is the message and the entire album takes the listener on a sonic journey, telling a story both through the lyrics and the music itself. "Time To Run" is the album's stand out track, epitomizing the essence of Lord Huron's music equally through music and words. Other tracks that highlight the best parts of the album are the lead track "Ends Of The Earth" and the storyteller "The Man Who Lives Forever." Lord Huron sits comfortably at a crossroads between what is artistically musical and commercially relevant, a perfect spot for an act trying to hold onto critical integrity while still allowing for popular success.

REVIEW: Medeski Martin And Wood - Free Magic

Medeski Martin And Wood are artists who paint with their instruments.The sonic landscapes created by this trio mix everything from jazz to rock to electronic music in ways that are unmatched. Their latest is a live album that showcases some of the best organic and improvisational jazz music that they've ever created or performed. It's part smoky jazz club and part jam band rock concert rolled up into one. Most of the music is original, but all of it shows off the MMW's talents with going their own may and at times the music can sound as simple or complex as a jam session. MMW continue to push the envelope with their attack on the ears, and this latest release shows off just how well they do it in front of a live audience.

REVIEW: Dave Matthews Band - Away From The World

For a band who has been to the edge and back, making music that brings them back to their roots is always hard to do. With having been in existence for over 20 years, Dave Matthews Band has been able to grow with each new album, however, not always fitting in with their original signature sound or with the sounds of popular rock music. Creativity is always at the core, and their left field turns have both garnered success and tons of question marks. Their previous album (2009's "Big Whiskey & The GrooGrux King) was a return to old, showcasing the intricacy of their music, their abilities to write equal parts radio pop rock gold and jam band fireworks had returned to the forefront of their music. This album marks the reuniting of the band with producer Steve Lillywhite, who helmed the recording processes of the band's first three (and most popular) albums. The sounds of the album are reminiscent of those releases however featuring a much more updated and mature Dave Matthews Band. The lyrical content has grown up and deals with much more global and adult themes and the album marks the first entirely recorded without founding member LeRoi Moore. Touring musicians Tim Reynolds (guirar), Jeff Coffin (saxaphones), and Rashawn Ross (trumpet) take a more prominent role on this record (including several writing credits and photos within the cd packaging), virtually making them official members of the band. The music has it all and is reminiscent of pieces of every single release from DMB over the past 20 years. Songs like "The Riff" and "Drunken Soldier" are deep and artistic and could be compared to "Stand Up" era DMB sounds combined with the production of their first two albums. The album's lead single "Mercy" is one of their best ever, both lyrically and musically, and is very reminiscent of tracks like "Where Are You Going" and "You & Me." "Sweet" has Dave playing ukulele which is a unique turn and "Belly Belly Nice" is a track that is most likely rooted in the funk of Sly & The Family Stone. Songs like "Gaucho" and "If Only" could easily have fit into the earlier Lillywhite records, but are showcased perfectly by the band at this time in their careers. Sure the band could have gone into the studio with Steve Lillywhite and dusted off a lot of older tunes and made a superbly killer album (and we still hope they do), but it's nice to hear that the band still has what it takes to make new, fresh, and exciting tunes that fit nicely within their catalogue and their live setlists. This album marks what could very well be the return to original form of Dave Matthews Band, and be the springboard that launches another successful 20 years of awesome recording and touring.

REVIEW: Erin McCarley - My Stadium Electric

Erin McCarley is a powerhouse of musicality. This second album showcases a much more poppier side of her than her first album, showing how fun music really can be. The production on the album is tighter and less organic, making for a different sound, yet familiar to any Erin McCarley fan. The album is more accessible, but more artistic in the same vein. For a musician who can just be "a girl with a guitar," this style of music can be looked at as a departure from her rootsier past, or just as an elaborate version of what Erin does best: write and sing great songs. "elevator" is the lead track and debut single from the album and can completely sum up the entire album is one small song. You are hooked and drawn in from the first note, and crave to finish the entire album and rock out thoroughly from beginning to end. Whether it be a tightly produced pop song or a loose and free flowing acoustic rocker, Erin McCarley has shown that she is truly a talent in the music world that needs to be absorbed.

REVIEW: Dispatch - Circles Around The Sun

After not having recorded new music for almost 11 years, Dispatch hit us all with their self titled EP in 2011, but didn't stop their. Their first full album of new music in 12 years, "Circles Around The Sun," is everything that Dispatch fans have come to love about the band and more. The biggest standout of the album is it is reggae-free, something that may seem like a downside, but it's really not. The rock filled album showcases the bands incredible ability to write well-written songs that are firmly planted on their lyrics and their instrumentation. The band will see minimal commercial success with this album on the heels of the title track single, as well as the hype that has been building around the album over the past 8 years since they "officially" broke up. Now we know that the band just needed a break, and after very successful solo careers (which still will continue) they reconvened reenergize, older, wiser, and more understanding of the collaborative creative process. As always each band member serves as lead singer and has their own individual compositions showcased, but the band as a whole came together to deliver some incredible tracks that are both a reminder of the past and a outlook to the future of the band's sound and intent. "Not Messin'" and "Josephine" could have appeared on any previous release, but sound like they could only have been released by the band at this stage in their career. "Get Ready Boy" is a lyrical masterpiece by Chad, telling the simple story of leaf falling from a tree in such a profound way. "Feels So Good" is Pete's crown jewel from this collection, as it is all about the birth of his first child. Brad's stamp on the album is not only in his incredible drumming, but also in the song "Flag," an ode to Native American strife. The band goes all experimental on "We Hold A Gun," whose sound is a departure from most of Dispatch's signature sounds as if it may have been heavily influenced by Radiohead and psychedelic era Beatles. The boys are back, and from the looks and sounds of it, it seems like this reunion is more of a reconnection and will not be short lived. The band has much more to bring us both as a whole and from its individual members, and this is just the beginning (again)!

REVIEW: Rayland Baxter - Feathers & Fishhooks

If there was an award for "Rookie Of The Year" in the music industry then Rayland Baxter would win it. Sure, the Grammys give out a Best New Artist award, but this is a different thing. The thing about Baxter's debut album is that it is like an album that a seasoned veteran would have released. It is grown up and catchy at the same time, but doesn't seem gimmicky or like a copycat. There are a bunch of songs on the album with are updated versions of Rayland's originals which he's been showcasing on his website and his own independently released EP, but on this album they get the full treatment they deserve and make their previous incarnations seem just like demos. "The Mtn Song" is by far one of the best of the album and quite possibly within the top ten songs of the year. It's simple and straightforward, but allows the listener to become wrapped up inside the lyrics. Other standouts include the first single "Driveway Melody" and "The Woman For Me." At the core, the entire album is just a man and his guitar, but the layers of instrumentation and melody lift each lyric to a new height. Rayland Baxter is not going to get the praise he deserves because too many music fans are going to overlook this album, and that's a shame. But those who do will find a diamond and will fall in love with his music instantly.

REVIEW: The Dirty Heads - Cabin By The Sea

The Dirty Heads' first album was a giant success, both sonically and commercially, so much so that they actually released it twice. The second go around is what really put them on the map as a standout in the work of alternative rock and reggae genres. As for repeating the success the band saw with that album, it was going to be challenging. They met that challenge head on and while the new album may not be giant radio hits from start to finish, it does have a quality the debut did not: it is a complete album. "Cabin By The Sea" is the type of album that you put on and listen to from start to finish and the sum total of the album is much greater than the individual parts. Sure, there is that hit single ("Spread Too Thin") and Rome Ramirez guests again ("Mongo Push"), so there are elements that made the first album great carrying though. The thing is that the band seemingly put so much more heart, soul, and energy into creating an album this time out that just a collection of songs. You will find yourself rocking out to tracks like "Hipster" and "Dance All Night" which features a guest appearance by Matisyahu. You will also find yourself surprised on songs like "Smoke Rings," which features the vocal contribution of Del Tha Funky Homosapien, and is the bands closest attempt at a true rap song. "Burn By Myself," "Love Letters," and "Day By Day" all showcase the band's excellent way with lyrics, and keeps the album flowing smoothly. All in all, the Dirty Heads may have already arrived, but their new album shows that they are here to stay and are ready to define and redefine their genre, one which they have already embraced and conquered.

REVIEW: Allen Stone

Allen Stone's self titled debut album for ATO Records is a thing of beauty. Not many artists are putting out such organic and funky in this way. The entire album is indie soul, which is not really a defined genre. It's true, there are many musicians who have mastered soul music, but Stone, a son of a preacher from Seattle, WA is not your typical soul artist. In fact, one look at him, and you'd expect to see him fronting an indie rock or alternative reggae band. The album's lead track and lead single "Sleep," is already making itself a huge presence on the airwaves, and rightfully so, as it is an upbeat, horn-filled, funky soul rock song that's easy to sing along and dance to. The most well written track closes out the album. "Unaware" is a lyrical masterpiece and is delivered well with the prominence of Stone's smooth and jazzy vocals and the simplicity of the acoustic guitar. Stone also enlisted some musician friends (Dave Barnes, Andy Grammer) to help cowrite some of the album's other standout, but makes a case for himself as a superior songwriter and vocalist. This is the type of music that doesn't really fit into any one classification, making it very much accessible to a plethora of music fans.

REVIEW: Big Easy Express

Emmett Malloy has done it again. He is an incredible storyteller, but when there is a subject matter as good as this, it just takes a skilled and talented director to point it in the right direction. Documenting a very unique tour, the film follows 3 bands (Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros, Mumford & Sons, and Old Crow Medicine Show) from Oakland, CA to New Orleans, LA aboard a vintage train stopping along the way to put on incredible live concerts showcasing their superb blends of folk, indie rock, and live energy. Showing not only the incredible music but the camaraderie as well, Malloy tells the story of this tour through the musings of the band. Incredible once-in-a-lifetime behind-the-scenes collaborations happen in every nook and cranny on that vintage train, and the music created is forever enshrined within this film. Aside from the music, the artistry of the filmmaking, cinematography, and sound of the film are as good as any documentary, award nominated or otherwise. This cross country journey is one that any music fan, even those not into the genres of the bands within, can become immersed in. See the country as it was once seen before the days of air travel and superhighways, and do it with great bands, even better music, and through the eyes of a visionary director.

REVIEW: ALO - Sounds Like This

If this album had been release way back when Phish announced their hiatus, it would have surely propelled ALO into the spot as the dominant jam band of the moment. That being said, this new album takes a bit from their previous three and steps it way up. Their Jack Johnson-meets-Phish sound permeates the entire album, which sounds more like a jam session than a carefully crafted collection of new songs. Only two of the ten songs on the album clock it under five minutes, proving that ALO are a jam band at the core. But they still have pop sensibilities as is proven in the lyrical content. What makes the album great is that you can actually hear the four members of the band having fun through their music. They set out to make a record that just showed off how they do music and the result is an album that is as equally impressive as their live shows. The first single "Speed Of Dreams" (which was edited shorter for radio) is the only track on the album that sounds like it could have fit on any of their previous three. The opener, "Dead Still Dance," is one of those songs that showcases off the element of their live jamming and will sound just as good on stage as it does on the album. Other standouts on the album are the seemingly short "Storms And Hurricanes" and the edgy "Blew Out The Walls." From start to finish is sounds as though ALO is performing a live show and by the time it's over you'll be screaming for an encore. There songs are going to be just as fun on stage as they are on the album, and it's going to be hard to tell who's having more fun at the shows they are performed at: the band or the fans.

REVIEW: Pete Kilpatrick Band - Heavy Fire

Pete Kilpatrick Band is an incredibly underappreciated force in the music world. On their latest album they continue the greatness that they started two releases ago, and deliver well crafted pop and rock songs that showcase the intricacies of Kilpatricks lyrics and how well they are interwoven with the music. Friend and collaborator Stefan Lessard (of Dave Matthews Band) lends his talents to the edgy track "Burning Star." The title track is the album's anchor and standout, Showcasing both Kilpatrick's ability to write a catchy hook and the band's talents for crafting rock songs that don't sound like everything else on the radio. The lyrics are the root of the success of the album, but it's the creative music and instrumentation that is the glue that holds it all together, making for, quite possibly, PKB's best collection of songs to date. Each song on the album will translate well to the live stage and the album's true beauty can be fully realized upon first listen. It's not often band's can create such magnificence without a major label footing the bill, but Pete Kilpatrick Band continue to prove that the music is the heart of their band, and when it works it just works.

REVIEW: Eric Hutchinson - Moving Up Living Down

Eric Hutchinson writes and sings his music like he's a twenty year veteran of the industry. His tunes are pop gold and each and every one sounds as tight as ever on his newest album. Pretty much picking up where he left off on his last, his music dives into the various aspects off love and relationships in an incredibly relatable way. In fact, he has such a way with words and music, he can make a miserable feeling and make it sound fun and exciting just as he does on debut single "Watching You Watch Him." Other songs on the album are the piano driven "Best Days" and the subtly reggae influenced "Talk Is Cheap." Hutchinson is one of this generations premier pop singer/songwriters and his range reaches from the top 40 airwaves all the way to the smoky bars and open mic nights of the world. This latest just proves that his last album and subsequent success was no freak accident.

REVIEW: Jack Johnson & Friends - Best Of Kokua Festival

When Jack Johnson assembles an all-star lineup for his Kokua Festival he often includes his friends, many of which appear on this album. He also makes sure to include a lot of other incredibly talented musicians that all share the same vision of music as a unifier and a provider. The Kokua Festival, which Johnson created, exists to support a charitable organization that helps the youth and educational efforts in his home state of Hawaii. In fact, the sale of this album also does just that. The album features a familiar cast of characters that Jack has performed with in the past, such as Ben Harper, G. Love, & Zach Gill. However, the highlights of the album are the performances with Dave Matthews and Tim Reynolds and a surprise appearance at the festival by Damian "Jr. Gong" Marley. Each and ever inclusion in this mix must have taken a very long time to pick as there are so many great performances that have come from previous Kokua Festivals. Songs on the album are Johnson originals, familiar cover songs, and some of his guests' music, all of which feature Jack lending his talents. Live music is supposed to be fun, even if it's slow and mellow, and Jack Johnson and friends deliver one of the most fun live compilation ever released.

REVIEW: Jason Mraz - Love Is A Four Letter Word

Jason Mraz's career started off strong and then took a left turn only to find it's way back again with the release of his last album. Skyrocketing him to new heights, the single "I'm Yours" turned Mraz into a household. That success allowed him to get a little bit more creative with his latest album, making an entire collection of music that is basically for himself. Musicians use their music as outlets for all sorts of emotions and views and beliefs, and on this album Mraz channels all of his inner love. Songs like "I Won't Give Up," "The World As I See It," and "The Woman I Love" are all smash hits in the signature Mraz style but it's the little moments on the album that shine the brightest. The inclusion of vocalist Inara George give Mraz a little indie cred, but it's the subtle jam rocker "5/6" is the best song on the album. Although he's not a jam band artist, "5/6" showcases Mraz's ability to use the music as a vessel and not just his creative lyrics. All in all, on the heels of his previous album, this one continues to propel him down a perfect path. Jason Mraz has found the ability to harness mellow and bottle it up as pop excellence.

REVIEW: Zach Heckendorf - The Cool Down

Out of left field, occasionally, a new music breaks onto the scene virtually unannounced. That's how Zach Heckendorf has come to be in our ears these days. His debut, self released album is finally making waves and getting heard through the backing of Aware and Universal Records. The first single off of the album is "All The Right Places" and is a collected mix of the jam band finger plucking style of Dave Matthews and the chilled out vibe of Jack Johnson. The album features production by friend Brett Dennen, who leaves his stamp all throughout the entire disc. Heckendorf, a native of Colorado whose music scene is booming, delivers a solid performance of refined and structured pop rock music, with an indie folk edginess. Songs such as "Invisible Ink" and "Tye Dye March"  mix his unique vocals and lyrics with a danceable rock that is perfect for a summer day and lends itself well to an outdoor music festival. The songs on the album transport you to a place that you truly long to be and keep you enveloped in warmth from beginning to end. Fans of everyone from Guster and Dispatch to Ray LaMontagne and John Mayer will find something in Heckendorf's music that will surely have him in the next best thing category soon enough.

REVIEW: Bahamas - Barchords

Bahamas sounds like an alt-country version of mellow acoustic rock you might hear on a beach somewhere in the South Pacific or California or even the Caribbean. The cool, calm feel of all the songs on the album feel like a bit of a throwback to simpler, more jangly music that was around in the 50's and 60's. However, the coolest part of Bahamas' new album and his musical performances as a whole, the songs sound so new and fresh and innovative. "Caught Me Thinking" is an instant classic and takes his last album and launches it into a new stratosphere of music. While every song on his first album was artistic, the accessibility of the masses was virtually non-existent. The new album is a fuller, catchier, and brighter version of his debut (of course with all new songs). While critically his debut was raved about, not many people (aside from the Brushfire Records die-hard fans) really embraced it. This album will be one that many fans from all over the world will be able to wrap their arms around and fall in love with. Standout's include the mellow opener "Lost In The Light" along with "OK Alright I'm Alive." Songs such as the vintage sounding "I Got You Babe" and "Your Sweet Touch" will surely become fan favorites, particularly amongst those who understand and appreciate the album as a whole and don't just key in on what they might hear on the radio or see on the web. "Barchords" is awesome, yet simple, artsy music for the listener who wants something that doesn't sound a whole lot like the rest of everything else.

REVIEW: Matt Corby - Into The Flame

For many fans of music, television shows where unknown singers compete for record contracts are not the place where you find real talent. Sure, success has been had by winners (and some losers) of these shows, but the vast majority fade into oblivion. This is a case where a loser of one of these shows has used his appearance to catapult himself into the limelight. The catch: he appeared on Australian Idol, a version of the popular American television show filmed down under. His most recent EP is his best recording yet, combining rootsy soul with acoustic folk is a combination unheard anywhere in the world. He is purely amazing with the way he transmits his music, transforming the air into a canvas for his sonic paints. The track "Brother," which is the single from this independently released EP, found itself winding up at #3 on 2011's "Hottest 100" song list as voted on by fans of Australian radio station Triple J. The song is one of the best songs you'll ever hear and will instantly get stuck in your head for hours on end. This EP is just the latest in a string of short recordings that Corby has put out since his television appearance, but will surely be the springboard which catapults him to stardom throughout the entire world. American satellite radio has even begun playing his cover of the Black Keys' "Lonely Boy" that he recorded live in studio for Triple J's :Like A Version." Get to know Matt Corby now, because he is going to be a household name by the year's end, and and you'll be able to say you knew him before he was huge (at least in the US).

REVIEW: Ben Kweller - Go Fly A Kite

Ben Kweller is a talented musician that has proven that he can go through everything from power pop to country music. His last was a departure from his folk pop roots, but this new album is a return to what we grew to love Kweller for. Of all his releases this album most resembles his ATO Records debut "Sha Sha" and all his indie work prior to that. The disc is hook filled and will have you humming and singing along to it by the third track. It begins with "Mean To Me," where ben displays his closest Weezer impersonation. It's in your face power pop that you practically have memorized by the end of the song. The song is so good that, upon first listen, you might replay it before heading into track two. "Jealous Girl" is the obvious standout with it's catchy lyrics and accessible folk-pop tones. This is the song that you'd hear accross multiple radio formats and it would fit in and standout in all of them. Kweller is a master of simplicity, knowing just how to boil his own complexity down to make his songs likeable. "Go Fly A Kite" is a return to his roots, sitting just where and why we fell in love with him.

REVIEW: Tony Lucca "Under The Influence"

Tony Lucca is not a new face in the music scene, despite his recent introduction to the pop culture world through his debut performance on the second season of NBC's "The Voice." He has released a handful of albums independently and through independent labels, and as a teen, was a member of the Mickey Mouse Club (right alongside Justin Timberlake, Britney Spears, and Christina Aguilera). In 2011, Lucca released this collection of music, his first full album of cover songs. Being that he will be doing a lot of that while trying win this singing competition, its great to hear that not only has he had proven success in the past, he sure can sing. This album features Lucca at his best, not trying to impress with his own lyrics (which are awesome by themselves) but as a singer just singing great songs. The songs may or may not be familiar to everyone, but they showcase Tony Lucca as he will be on the show, as he is as a singer, and open a window into who he has been as a musician over the past decade or so. If anyone is looking for an introduction to Lucca, here is a great place to start. It's an outstanding collection of songs sung by an incredible artist. But, if anyone wants to really be wowed, listening to his previous albums of original tunes will surely show why he is probably a (very) early favorite to take the title in season 2. And, picking Adam Levine as his coach is going to help quite a bit as well.

REVIEW: Dia Frampton "Red"

Having already had a pretty successful career fronting the band Meg & Dia with her sister, Dia Frampton was a surprise to appear on NBC's "The Voice" during their first season. But it quickly became apparent that Dia Frampton is an incredibly different musician when out on her own. Her striking renditions of familiar songs on the show only proved that, despite coming in second, she was sure to showcase her unique twist on a indie-influenced pop through the release of her debut solo album. Framtpon, who cowrote every song on the album, showcases all the different edges and facets of her musical personality from start to finish. A departure, her duet with "Voice" coach Blake Shelton, is the only left field track on the album that seemingly spends its entire duration in left field. Cowriters like Foster The People's Marc Foster and rapper Kid Cudi are surprises on the disc, and their songs "Billy The Kid" and "Don't Kick The Chair" (which features a verse by Kid Cubi) are standouts on the album. Showing off her true musical self, the first single "The Broken Ones," and the songs "Isabella" and "Daniel" are deep and intimate. They showcase not only her excellent lyricism, but also her connection to her music making it emotional and personal. Frampton may have been the runner up, but her musical shops and her new solo album have proven that she has quiet star power and will always be known for her musical creation and not her triumphant successes.

REVIEW: Javier Colon "Come Through For You"

Javier Colon has been at it for quite some time, trying to make a name for himself. Never giving up is something that has kept him going and after an appearance on NBC's "The Voice" he finally got the platform he has always needed to make it all happen. His debut album (well, not really... he's self released others in the past) is a collection of pop gold. He had the help of a handful of excellent writers to put together a stunning debut that features his entire range of musical abilities. He's got a few tunes in there that are soulful R&B and a handful that are pure pop. The standout tracks include the title song, "Life Is Getting Better," and his collaboration with his "Voice" coach, Maroon 5's Adam Levine. The collaboration, a track entitled "Stand Up," Is a mix of Colon's soulfulness and Levine's funkiness, mixed with a ton of swagger that is not overdone. Colon has proven that it matters not how long you've been in the game, but the drive you put in what what and who you love. Colon is sure to ride the success of the show on the heels of this album and have an outstanding music career.

REVIEW: Rebelution - Peace Of Mind

Rebelution's latest release is a bit of an undertaking on their part. Essentially they have released 3 full length albums. The first is "Peace Of Mind," a collection of brand new original reggae fueled tracks that is their best yet. The other two are the first album reinvented. "Peace Of Mind Dub" is a remix album by Michael Goldwasser of Easy Star Allstars which takes the already excellent reggae sound of Rebelution's new album and revamps it into a dirty funky dub reggae masterpiece. This is the kind of stuff that you'd excpect to hear coming straight out of Jamaica. The third in the set is an acoustic take on the full length album, showing off the intricacies of the songs, focusing on the lyrics and melody, rather than the funk and reggae. "Peace Of Mind Acoustic" solidifies Rebelution as a force in the reggae world, showing that the band is not just all about being fun and funky, but the whole package of making music is very important to them. As for the songs, there are some really great tunes on here. "Sky Is The Limit," the album's debut single, is by far Rebelution's most energetic song and bridges their signature style with the accessibility of mainstream alternative and reggae rock music. "Route Around" is the gem of the collection, sowing a softer more poignant side of the band. SOJA's Jacob Hemphill and Blues Traveler's John Popper make guest appearances on the disc, and each of their songs is amplified by their contributions. Rebelution is blasting to the forefront of their genre and is now a force to be reckoned with.

REVIEW: The White Buffalo - The Lost & Found EP & Once Upon A Time In The West

The White Buffalo has been around the block a few times, but he finally has landed in a spot when the recognition he deserves will certainly find him. The recent release of "The Lost And Found EP" and the pending release of his album "One Upon A Time In The West" show off a musical talent that is far beyond what is comprehensible in today's musical world. He has been doing the folk rock thing for a while, long before anyone cared about listening to an acoustic guitar or kicking back with some mellow tunes. The difference is that he delivers with an intensity that can be compared to that of a metal band or even Johnny Cash (who he is compared to all the time). The first singles "How The West Was Won" and "The Pilot" are featured on both releases, giving the listener a pure idea of the music that The White Buffalo is capable of. American rock and roll are the cornerstone, with a heavy emphasis on folk and his acoustic guitar. The White Buffalo's deep voice is what make him stand out, but what makes him a valuable piece of the folk rock community are songs like "Wish It Was True" and "Sleepy Little Town." These songs show off his masterful and poetic lyrics and meld them securely with the music to create a package that epitomizes American folk rock music. AAA and alternative rock radio should make space and time in their rotations for this music, as The White Buffalo is a diamond in the rough just waiting to be discovered by the masses.

REVIEW: Michael Kiwanuka's EPs - Tell Me A Tale, I'm Getting Ready, & Home Again

Michael Kiwanuka is a bright new talent out of the UK doing some throwback music that translates well with the folk rock trends that have recently come out of the indie world. Recently, Kiwanuka has released 3 EPs that showcase his old soul and folk sensibilities. The singles "I'm Getting Ready" and "Home Again" invoke just as much Bob Dylan as they do Al Green, and Kiwanuka's delivery comes from a place that is rooted deeply the music of the 60's and 70's. Fans of current musicians like Ray LaMontagne and even indie rockers such as The Head And The Heart will find Kiwanuka's music inviting and satisfying. His track "Tell Me A Tale" is the song that will make your head turn, as it is a mix of 70's funk and soul and 60's folk, featuring horns that set the mood wonderfully. He is poised to make a huge name for himself once his debut full length isreleased, and after the hugely successful year for old souls (i.e. Adele), it will set him up for equalled success.
