Songs of Patrick Phelan, Patrick Phelan

Songs of Patrick Phelan by Patrick Phelan (Review)

It’s music for late nights, when it feels like you’re the only one up and noone else cares, when your eyes are burning and your body is screaming for sleep.
He Has Left Us Alone, A Silver Mt. Zion

He Has Left Us Alone, but Shafts of Light Sometimes Grace the Corner of Our Rooms… by A Silver Mt. Zion (Review)

I think we’ll all be hard-pressed at year’s end to find an album quite as inspired (and inspiring) as this one.
The Fawn - Sea And Cake

The Fawn by The Sea And Cake (Review)

So much goes on within each track that The Fawn begs to be carefully listened to over and over again.
Electric Honey - Luscious Jackson

Electric Honey by Luscious Jackson (Review)

A beat-heated delight that one may hear snippets of amidst the flashing lights of a discotheque.
Fever In Fever Out - Luscious Jackson

Fever In Fever Out by Luscious Jackson (Review)

This is probably the strongest example of the songwriting and musical talent Luscious Jackson possessed.
The One and Only - Kim Lenz and the Jaguars

The One and Only by Kim Lenz And The Jaguars (Review)

Kim Lenz and the Jaguars have an effective tone that almost any rockabilly fan would find tempting.
Into the Sun - Sean Lennon

Into the Sun by Sean Lennon (Review)

John Lennon’s son shows off songwriting skills that are as impressive as those of the former Beatle.
Lollo Rosso - The High Llamas

Lollo Rosso by The High Llamas (Review)

Lollo Rosso moves in odd directions at times, but it definitely represents the unique style and talent of the High Llamas.
Maldoror - Steven Severin

Maldoror by Steven Severin (Review)

Putting out soundtracks as records implies they are indeed good enough to stand on their own, and I’m not convinced this one can.
