RCU’s Top 100 Albums of the 2010’s

Say what you will about the 2010s, but at least the decade brought us a wealth of great music. While lists are a dime a dozen these days, I thought it would be appropriate to show our appreciation of what musically defined the last ten years for me.

July Roundup – Part 2: Bitches in The Beehive, De Lorians, Hurricane Heart Attacks and More

July has been one hell of a great month for new music. We just had to squeeze in another one of these before it was over.

Jordan Perry – Witness Tree

Jordan Perry’s Witness Tree takes the acoustic guitar to obscure, unexplored horizons in a way that’ll make you never look at—nor hear—the instrument the same way again. Freshly released by Feeding Tube Records, Witness Tree finds Perry seemingly deconstructing folk and blues styles down to their barest elements. He relishes in the smallest details of these forms,Continue reading “Jordan Perry – Witness Tree”

As cool as night and as slick as a razor blade, Frankie Teardrop Dead is a modern psychedelic rock tribe that seriously deserves a devoted cult following.

Meg Baird & Mary Lattimore – Ghost Forests

Individually, Meg Baird and Mary Lattimore can essentially do no wrong. Together, they are a force that certainly cannot produce anything other than pure magic. Ghost Forests finds the pair complimenting each other’s strengths beautifully. Baird’s subtle yet evocative guitar work and spectral, boundless vocals are supported by—and blend perfectly with— Lattimore’s equally commanding and evocativeContinue reading “Meg Baird & Mary Lattimore – Ghost Forests”

Pretty Lightning- The Rhythm of Ooze [Psychedelic Rock/Acid-Blues Rock]

German acid-blues rockers, Pretty Lightning absolutely slay on their latest full-length release, The Rhythm of Ooze. Released digitally, on vinyl and CD by the great folks over at Fuzz Club Records, Ooze kicks like some sort of killer late-60’s Howlin’ Wolf/Black Angels/Dungen hybrid. Totally thick with thudding drums, scuzzy bluez riffs and wild psychedelic flourishes,Continue reading “Pretty Lightning- The Rhythm of Ooze [Psychedelic Rock/Acid-Blues Rock]”
