Album Review (New Release): John Mayer – The Search for Everything – Wave One

Friday, February 10th, 2017 by Margaret Jokoh

Review by: William O’Connor ’20

John Mayer – The Search for Everything – Wave One

Released: January 20th, 2017

Rate: 8.5/10

LIYL: Train, Ed Sheeran, and the John Mayer Trio

This first “wave” had a lot of hype leading up to its release and it’s finally here. This is his first release since Paradise Valley and Born and Raised,  those two albums being very different compared to what he has put out in the past. They were definitely not his best, and in anticipation of this new release we were all hoping for a huge improvement, something different from the singer-songwriter. For one thing, his trio band members who have made some of John Mayer’s best music with him, Steve Jordan and Pino Palladino, are backing in the drums and bass. They played songs with him such as “Gravity”, “Who Did You Think I Was”, “Daughters”, and “Try”. (more…)

Review by: Claire Riley

Fractal Cat – The Tower

Rate: 8.5/10

LIYL: Brooks Long and the MadDogNoGood, Pink Floyd, Stanley Roots

Local Baltimore band Fractal Cat released their third album “The Tower” on the 26th of this month. It can now be streamed online via Spotify and Apple music and purchased on iTunes and CD as well.  Previous albums include “Loving Kind” released in 2014 and “The Eye in The Dawn” released in 2012. All three albums have a similar musical style, so if you liked “The Tower,” check the other two! As a band inspired by the golden age of rock n roll when legends like Buddy Holly and Smokey Robinson dominated the music world, Fractal Cat is known for their personal twist of trippy, psychedelic rock.

Album Review: Buenos Diaz – Buenos Diaz

Tuesday, January 24th, 2017 by Margaret Jokoh

Review by: William O’Connor

Buenos Diaz– Buenos Diaz

Rate: 7.2/10

LIYL: Red Hot Chili Peppers, The Black Keys, and Jack White

This is a band I’ve never heard before, and I was not only surprised but impressed. The first song, Hem Haw, is a short intro that opens up the album and shows off its instrumentals. After hearing this intro you can know what to expect for the rest of the album. (more…)

Originally from Brooklyn, NY Bear Hands releases their new album , You’ll pay for this earlier this month. The band comprised of, Dylan Rau, Ted Feldman, Val Loper, TJ Orscher characterizes themselves as being Alternaitive/Indie rock, as ambiguous as the sounds, so is the music on the album. It definitely genre bends, though at the core of the music, it is very much Bear Hands’ sound. (more…)

Daniel Champagne, an accomplished singer, songwriter and guitarist, released his sixth album The Heartland Hurricanes and it is absolutely amazing.

Lukas Graham-Blue

Tuesday, April 5th, 2016 by Margaret Jokoh

cover170x170-6Luke Graham-Blue

Released: April 01, 2016

Rate: 4/10

Lukas Graham, originally from Christiania an artistic community in the middle of Copenhagen, released his second studio album, Blue  through Warner Bros. Records. Originally garnering American buzz and success from his song, “7 years”, the album is a kind of a disappointment. Blue, is pretty stagnant and does not drift far, melodically from 7 years. Graham however, does try to explore other genres of music: some R&B, some funk, etc. but it ends up making the album come off sloppy and disjointed. (more…)

Cardiknox-Potrait

Tuesday, March 29th, 2016 by Margaret Jokoh

cover170x170-4Cardiknox-Portrait

Released: March 11, 2016

Rate: 7/10

Cardiknox a duo from New York City, recently released their LP Portrait and it is a mix of disco, dance pop and synth. If you like Marina and the Diamonds, Chvrches or even Sky Fierra you will definitely enjoy this album. Though a duo, Cardiknox creates such a huge sound that completes its lyrically honesty. The song, “Shadowboxing” chronicles a relationship, and fighting for someone and musically captures the moment perfectly, making listeners like you and me able to not only picture but also feel what they went through or trying to convey. Their vocalist, has such a huge voice that compliments their sound very well. The two are signed to Warner Brothers, who have artist like Echosmith, I believe with an up and coming artist like Cardiknox, that they would compliment Echosmith very well on any upcoming tour they may have. There is not much to say about the album, the music speaks for itself. Their immense honesty speaks for itself. I would definitely, check them out because they definitely have that “it” factor!
