ACL 2021 ~ The Year’s Best Album Covers

Album covers were never more important than they are today.  In the old days, one might peruse the bins at the local record store, seeing if something caught the eye and hopefully the ear.  Now most people buy their music

ACL 2021 ~ The Happiest Music of the Year

Few would call 2021 a happy year, although it was graced by moments of hope: a (short lived) political shift, a vaccine, a summit on climate change.  But somehow, without warning, any day could bring a whiff of happiness: a

Francisco Sonur ~ Morning Trials

Let’s start with the elephant in the room.  This album sounds a lot like Sigur Rós, specifically the band’s melodic mid-period.  But we like Sigur Rós, and the band has since deserted that sound, while Jónsi has gone vocal with a tendency toward
