REEL to real – Episode 1 and 2

post brought to you by: dyson

I’m branching out into uncharted waters for me. 2012 needed a little change with what I wanted do with all of this random musical knowledge swimming around in my brain. I figured, I’ve got some amazing recording gear, I’ve got a voice, put two and two together, and why not use both of them to create a podcast.

I’ll admit. Up until recently I haven’t been much of a podcast listener myself so I tossed around with the idea and wondered if I should even put my feet in these waters. I did and I have to say, it felt good.

Favorite albums of 2011

post brought to you by: dyson

At this point you’ve probably read over dozens of year end lists. So I’m pretty sure you’re not going to see many shockers on here. 2011 was a great year for music but honestly, there are great things to come out every year. Here are my favorite records of 2011. They’ve probably gotten the most spins or just warmed some special part of my heart. You may have heard many of these or maybe you’ll find something new. Read on and happy holidays to you all.

Kurt von Stetten – Cyclops

post brought to you by: dyson

Boston has a hidden gem that’s slowly but surely becoming less and less secret. Kurt von Stetten is about to release his 80th studio record titled Cyclops on Dec. 13th (slight exaggeration but the dude’s made a ton of music).

I say this every time I try to muster up something to write about a band or artist, but Kurt definitely can not be genre defined. If you come up with one, well then shit, he’s sitting alone in it. But with the amount of aural pleasure that’s coming from that genre, I’m sure it’s not much of a lonely place.

Saint Motel – At Least I Have Nothing

post brought to you by: dyson

Good news just came by my way on this chilly but gorgeous Boston afternoon. Saint Motel released a new track titled “At Least I Have Nothing” and well, it’s awesome. I’m an instant fan of the track and I’m pretty sure you will be as well.

Even better news? It’s going onto my favorite medium. You can head here to pre-order the 7″ of it. This is their first vinyl release and one that’ll sit well in any collection.

Rah Rah – Breaking Hearts

post brought to you by: dyson

I’m such a sucker for a pretty girl with a pretty voice. And Justin Bieber ain’t my type… But that’s exactly what you get on the track featured off of Rah Rah‘s latest record, Breaking Hearts. (nothing Bieber sounding. That was a joke folks)

Released November 15th here in the States, this record is quite a trip. It’s got a wide range of sonic glory on here that is packed neatly in a 13 track album.

Ryan Traster – Junkie Bones

post brought to you by: dyson

As you probably noticed, I’m not an everyday blogger. I only post what I really like. So it goes without saying that if it’s up on the site, I really dig the sounds I’m hearing.

This is no exception with Ryan Traster and his track ‘Junkie Bones’ from his latest EP Good Hearts. It’s an amazing mix of raw rock, folk, and bit of that sweet spot that makes it sound current. A catchy hook definitely doesn’t hurt the likability of the track either.

White Label – Stolen Voices

post brought to you by: dyson

I’ll start out with the lamest way to describe a record but the most accurate way… This record is really really cool. And you’re all probably wondering “This dude writes a blog?”.

I’m not one to muster up hip, quotable, new ways to describe a sound or a record. I know what I like and all I want to do is share it with you in hopes you’ll dig it too. The record Stolen Voices from White Label is the latest I’ve come across that really got me excited.

A trio originally from Scotland, these fellas are now located in London and Berlin. They pieced together this record over the air via Skype from the UK to Germany and then mixed the beauty in London.

New Shouts – The Reins to Your Heart

post brought to you by: dyson

I’ve been digging through my inbox because I stupidly forgot to flag this track as one I wanted to write about. Well lucky for you and I, I found it!

New Shouts are a group from Pittsburgh who have recently released their LP/EP (not sure, it’s a group of 7 songs) titled Sing New Shouts. Wanna pick her up? Head over to their bandcamp page and grab it.

But “hold the phone”, you say! “I haven’t even heard anything by them yet! Why would I want the album!?” Hold tight and check out this beauty of a track. You’ll get why I went email diving to dig this one back up.

Vanaprasta – Nine Equals Nine

post brought to you by: dyson

I’m happy to share with you another track off of what is most likely my most highly anticipated album of the year. LA boys Vanaprasta are gearing up to release Healthy Geometry and have slipped out the opening track for your aural pleasure.

‘Nine Equals Nine’ is nothing short of perfect. After hearing this and ‘G -’, all I can say is that I’m even more excited for this record to come out.  These guys are incredible live but these studio cuts we’ve heard are really capturing the fullness of their sound.

Eolune – Ghost Departure

post brought to you by: dyson

Time to bring it back local style. Boston based band Eolune have a pretty rocking and tightly produced track titled ‘Ghost Departure’ I want to share with you from their Tiny Oceans EP.

You can grab both EPs they’ve put out from bandcamp and all proceeds go to the America Red Cross Relief Effort in Japan. That’s pretty cool in my book. Plus they’re pretty solid EPs. Name your price folks.
