Bearchild - Wishing Well

Vinyl Monday! Spotlight on local artists: How often do you see a band live first and then buy their album? Indie groups fit that mostly. Such is the case for LI and NYC group Bearchild. Frontman Justin Williams (Ye sIKEA 156 - Long Island Coworkers - past & present, that Justin) has released his groups first new full length album, Wishing Well. It's so well produced and performed you would think they've been doing this for years... Wait... They have been. You just haven't experienced it. From the first song, One you're hooked and really want to see where the record goes. Seeing them live first makes you want explore what didn't make it to the album. Get to their site and get this one now, and while you're there realize how good music is in your backyard. These guys are some to watch. You don't trust me. Pick up the record and prove me wrong. You're welcome.

Easy Star All-Stars - Dub Side of The Moon

BONUS Vinyl Monday:

As promised the 2nd vinyl pick... Now, I don't smoke* but I can certainly appreciate the creativity of those who do. What better sound can you get when the best modern Dub group, the Easy Star All Stars, covers the best Psychedelic rock group, Pink Floyd, best album Dark Side of The Moon? A super trippy dub heavy album that's best taken deep. You know an album is legit when it comes with instructions on how to sync it with The Wizard of Oz. They call it, The Dark Side of The Rainbow. Limited ed. Green Vinyl available at concerts and possibly online. Get it, trust me. You're welcome.

*Much anymore....

Portishead - Portishead

Vinyl Monday! 

Portishead's 2nd album like most 2nd "Trip-Hop" albums from "Trip-Hop" artists of the 90's is darker and a lot grittier than their first and arguably best album, Dummy. This album, Portishead, released in 1997 can be defined by one of the greatest haunting tracks of all time... Elysium. Why don't you own this album? Get it. On vinyl of course. You're welcome.

Sirius/ly - TV On The Radio

The new TV On The Radio album drops on November 18th. You would be doing yourself a fucking huge favor by picking up a copy. Preferably on vinyl. Shades of The Cure right here....
