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.

Music

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.

Music

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.

Music

The Bran Flakes: I Have Hands

Bright, upbeat and funky (though far less club-friendly), Otis Fodder and Mildred Pitt of the Bran Flakes come across like Girl Talk's Greg Ellis' older, more-eccentric uncle with a penchant for collecting obscure sonic references.

Music

Peter Joseph Head: Normal Ours

According to the album's press release, Head is attempting to document "…the search for the sublime in the mundane;" in writing an album full of carefree buoyancy, Head has, at the least, succeeded in introducing a few sublime moments into the life of the listener.

Music

Gaby Hernandez: When Love

Hernandez and her musical associates take musical strands of all sorts and delicately weave them together, creating a record that is gentle, subdued and, in its best moments, quite lovely.
