Secrets of the Moon – Antithesis

Secrets of the Moon – Antithesis / 2007 Self / 9 Tracks / http://www.secretsofthemoon.org / antithesis.sotm.de / Reviewed 21 June 2007 Secrets of the Moon start out their “Antithesis” with a well thought-out entry in “Nowhere 11.18”. The track gradually grows in speed and uses repetition to get into listeners’ heads. The band is able to tie together different elements and create something compelling without having to resort to vocals.…

Nox – Ixaxaar

Nox – Ixaxaar / 2007 Earache / 9 Tracks / http://www.myspace.com/nox333 / http://www.earache.com / Reviewed 21 June 2007 Nox is a band that plays an absurdly fast brand of metal. In fact, it is my opinion that they are one of the top five or ten fastest acts out on the market. While I have no reason to believe that they use sequencing on any of the tracks on “Ixaxaar”,…

Dreadful Yawns – Rest

Dreadful Yawns – Rest / 2007 Exit Stencil / 10 Tracks / http://www.bomp.com / http://www.myspace.com/dreadfulyawns / Reviewed 17 June 2007 It has been a few years since I have had a chance to hear The Dreadful Yawns. In fact, it was 2005 when I last reviewed a Dreadful Yawns album. For their self titled album on Bomp, I said that the band had a down home and rootsy sound that…

Rio En Medio – Bride of Dynamite

Rio En Medio – Bride of Dynamite / 2007 Gnomonsong / 12 Tracks / http://www.myspace.com/daniellestechhomsy / http://www.gnomonsong.com / Reviewed 17 June 2007 “You Can Stand” is the first track on Rio En Medio’s “Bride of Dynamite”, and the slower, more soulful sound created by the band during this track is telling. As it sits at the head of the album, the rest of the disc is tempered by the music…

Johnathan Wilson – Frankie Ray

Johnathan Wilson – Frankie Ray / 2007 Koch / 16 Tracks / http://www.kochrecords.com / http://www.songsofjonathanwilson.com / Reviewed 17 June 2007 The tag that I see Wilson tagged with is “rock”. I would have to not agree with that, as songs like “Calvary” rely much more on a country-western and seventies pop sound than anything remotely close to rock music. The walking bass line, the strung-out vocals, everything on “Frankie Ray”…

Michael Buble – Call Me Irresponsible

Michael Buble – Call Me Irresponsible / 2007 Reprise / 14 Tracks / http://www.michaelbuble.com / http://www.repriserecords.com / Reviewed 17 June 2007 Michael Buble is all the rage in the right circles, but is not among the key demographics that would turn this very successful artist into the “next big thing”. However, this artist may be able to establish eirself in the minds of a larger range of listeners with this…
