Amazon Says: Billy Bragg, once-described as a "one-man Clash," has spent the last two decades writing and performing passionate, witty, socially conscious music. This is a reissue of Brewing Up with Billy Bragg, Billy's 1984 sophomore effort, with the addition of 1985's Between the Wars EP. The album title comes from his brief stint on tank patrol in the British Army, about which Billy says, "One guy would park the tank and another would throw the camouflage netting over it, while one of us inside would brew up a pot of tea. But the title could refer to brewing up trouble, as well." The album's grassroots-fueled success made good on an early publicity claim, "Billy Bragg has no band, no 'experimental' haircut, no gimmick, and no video. He has a couple of cheap electric guitars, enormous personality, courage, integrity, a repertoire of timeless songs and, very shortly, a second gold disc to give to his Mum." less...

Amazon Says: Liquid White Light finds Poi Dog incarnating what should be pop music anthems into a living mix of delicate beats. This double-CD live set, recorded during a sold-out five-night run at Chicago's historic Vic Theater, shows the current state of the band, and their masterful evolution from folksy to funky, making this album a bedfellow of electronica. less...

Amazon Says: Founding member Trevor Hutchison spent much of 2007 pouring over the band’s body of work to select the tracks that best represent not only the energy, drive and fire that Lúnasa is known for, but also the uniqueness of their compositions and arrangement style. Along the way, the band made a side trip to the Compass Sound Studio in Nashville to re-record “Aibreann” and “Morning Nightcap” as a way of illustrating the sound of the current line-up and in the process redefined these band favourites as classics of their repertoire. The end result is a mind-blowing showcase of arguably the greatest instrumental group ever to exist in Irish music. • Re-visited and re-mixed, including two new recordings of Lúnasa classics “Aibreann” and “Morning Nightcap”. • Includes tracks from all three Green Linnet titles and all three Compass titles, including the originally self-released and now classic album Lúnasa. • Includes expansive liner notes on the band’s history and an extensive photo journal of the past 11 years. Featured are current band members: double bassist Trevor Hutchinson, piper Cillian Vallely, flutist Kevin Crawford, fiddler Sean Smyth, and guitarist Paul Meehan, as well as past members Donogh Hennessy (guitar), Michael McGoldrick (flute) and John McSherry (Uilleann pipes). Tracks: Eanáir: Lord Mayo / Gavotte; Maid Of Mt. Cisco / Feabhra: An Erc'h War an Enezeg (Snow On The Island); Brenda Stubbert's; Thunderhead / Aibreann: The Last Pint (re-recording) / The Miller of Drohan / The Floating Crowbar; McGlinchy’s; The Almost Reel / O'Carolan’s Welcome; Rolling In The Barrel / Killarney Boys Of Pleasure / Casu: Asturian Air; Aires de Pontevedra; Muineira de Casu / Morning Nightcap: The Wedding Reel; Morning Nightcap; The Malbay Shuffle (re-recording) / Cregg's Pipes: Cregg's Pipes; Uist Reel; John Doherty's / Fest Noz: Ridees 6 temps; Punch: Scottish Concerto Strathspey; Trip To Windsor; Punch In The Dark / The Dimmers: Jerry O’Sullivan’s; The Dimmers / Leckan Mor: Kalyana; Above In The Garret; Leckan Mór / The Dingle Berries: The Hop Slide; Padraig O’Keefe’s; Nessa The Mover; Trip To Dingle / Across The Black River less...

Amazon Says: Billy Bragg, once-described as a "one-man Clash," has spent the last two decades writing and performing passionate, witty, socially conscious music. This is a reissue of Talking with the Taxman About Poetry, Billy's 1985 album, about which Rolling Stone glowed, "On this album, cheerfully subtitled 'The difficult Third Album,' Bragg expands his pared-down sound ever-so-slightly (violin here, piano and tambourine there). While purists might bitch, the result is a winning mesh, as clever as Elvis Costello, as melodic as Ray Davies and as rocking as Chuck Berry." less...

Amazon Says: 2013 release from Chicago's modern Soul band. Throughout Howl, the dark side of love and longing is explored by frontman JC Brooks's starkly personal lyrics and the Uptown Sound's willingness to bare all their influences and let the grooves fall where they may. A collective evolution has been made where influence meets experience, and this organic progression results in 11 songs that are more open than ever both in message and vibe. less...

Amazon Says: ...Like Clockwork is the first Queens Of The Stone Age album since 2007's Era Vulgaris and, according to its founder constant, Joshua Homme, "...like clockwork was the only thing that didn't happen. " After a "manic year, " Homme and the current version of the Queens -- veteran Troy Van Leeuwen, Michael Shuman and Dean Fertita--along with the outgoing Joey Castillo and returning associate Dave Grohl, decided to embrace The Beast, "ride shotgun on our emotional bandwagon... hold the horrible, lick the lunacy" and, instead of shying away from uncomfortable or painful subject matter -- face it head-on. Along with Grohl, they picked up known associates Mark Lanegan, Nick Oliveri , Jon Theodore (now drumming full-time in the current live incarnation), Sir Elton John, Trent Reznor, Alex Turner and Jake Shears. Whatever happened -- out there, in whatever desert arroyo, former meth lab, decommissioned missile silo, nuclear test site, underground laboratory, convergence of brain waves and gamma rays, QOTSA emerges with not only their best work to date, but one of the most ambitious, fully realized classic rock albums in recent memory. less...
