    3. Album Review : Allison Weiss – Remember When

      Posted on in Album Review

      A year ago, a talented singer/songwriter favorited a tweet of mine about corn jokes in Iowa. She had just exited the stage in front of me after twisting my heart around and ingraining her melodies into my head. She introduced ‘Wait For Me’ as a delicate love song, but what happened was the crowd turned off any outside distraction and focused on her. Allison Weiss was the spotlight and her performance shocked me into purchasing her 2013 full-length Say What You Mean. The album became an important listen to me throughout the year. She is back with four new sparkling songs to feed the addiction, titled Remember When.


    4. Album Review : New Lungs – Reviver

      Posted on in Album Review

      Many bands have tried to imagine the color spectrum in the form of sonic devices. Bands have been very successful at producing different colors with multiple songs (The Dear Hunter, Between The Buried And Me), but Seattle’s own New Lungs spans a variety of moods and styles on the opening track of their newest EP, Reviver. ‘Colors’ stars off indefinite and eerie, bursting into a spastic instrumental before settling down with the first verse. The song is enhanced by the wallpapers that would swirl around the computer screen, vibrant and moody with their own colors. The way the verse dramatically swings into the chorus, the build up, the echoes that signal the end, all of the encompassing parts work together like the spectrum of a rainbow.
