Big Fresh: Big Fresh Forever

The record amounts to an exuberant love letter addressed from a stable of hard-working, veteran musicians (the band has been making albums for over a decade) to some of the quirkiest and most innovative pop/rock acts of the last few decades.

Rocco DeLuca and the Burden: Mercy

The music on DeLuca's second album with his band the Burden is so good it doesn't need to be rescued by Jack Bauer. This is a first-rate soul record which charms the listener more and more with each successive spin.

Mouthful of Bees: Mouthful of Bees

Soaring, layered harmonies intermingle with wandering instrumentals, swinging percussion and sharp guitar work on this self-titled collection of twelve songs.

Greater California: All the Colors

All the Colors not only relays the carefree spirit of the season in requisite, buoyant, Brian Wilson-esque tones, but it captures the idle moments and lazy lulls which summer brings.

Here Holy Spain: Manic

Each of the album's ten songs is delivered with an immediacy, an earnestness and an energy that augments the band's skill and amplifies the strength of their presence.
