Reviews of five new albums.
Reviews of Roman Candle’s Wee Hours Review, Chatham County Line Speed of the Whippoorwill, Chris Stills’ When the Pain Dies Down: Live in Paris, The Rosewood Thieves’From the Decker House, and Trainwreck Riders’Lonely Road Revival.
Adam Green is a darling of the hipster post-art scene and is the man behind the cult hit “Jessica”—a tongue-in-cheek ballad to Jessica Simpson. Somewhere along the way he decided that the public wanted a whole album of music like that. Bad idea.
This has been one of my favorite albums over the past few months. Its food for my ears. Every time I listen to it, its like Im hearing the songs for the first time. This band is noted for its use of digital bleeps and chirps, but their real strength is a generous use of lush choruses and rich guitar work.
