Heavenly! (Mystery Symphony)

This week, we examine another work that sounds even more like late Mozart. “Sounds like late Mozart” is high praise. For anyone.

Schubert's 5th Symphony 3

Heavenly! Schubert’s 5th Symphony

Sometimes it’s nice hearing something comfortable! Schubert’s 5th Symphony breaks no new ground. It is Mozart in drag. But works for me.

Kingdom Come 35

Weekend Plans Post: Kingdom Come

Kingdom Come came and went and there were a bunch of bands that did their best to sound like Led Zep. Hey, it’s not like Zeppelin is putting out any new albums.

Ghost 0

Saturday Spins: Ghost

This week we take a trip to the deeper south by way of Sweden with Ghost, a band that has a satanic cult concept, but an arena rock sound

Slobberbone 3

Saturday Spins: Slobberbone

Slobberbone is an excellent band, and your knowledge of them will instantly make you cooler than anyone else you know

Tasjan 0

Saturday Spins: Tasjan! Tasjan! Tasjan!

Expanding into a more pop-rock sound, Aaron Lee Tasjan has endlessly catchy songs in the vein of Tom Petty, ELO, and The Traveling Wilburys.

The Notting Hillbillies 1

Saturday Spins: The Notting Hillbillies

What is so different about the Notting Hillbillies is that Mark Knopfler eschewed front man status, and opted for a more background role.

Descendents 1

Saturday Spins-travaganza: Descendents

I consider Descendents to be an integral part of my teenage years. I hope these guys keep making music well into their golden years.
