21th of December
Oryx and Crake - Oryx and Crake

Oryx + Crake

Margaret Atwood's novel gave them name, Ryan Poeples and Rebekah Good - Poeples made them good people, nine members of the band gave them rich sound, uncommon use of cello and banjo gave them distinction, God (Orix? Crake?) gave them inspiration. All I'm asking you right now is to give them a chance. They will took their chances anyway, and you'll be sorry for not being revelator!

Jeffrey Foucault  - Cold Satellite

Cold Satellite [Explicit]

Jeffrey Foucault's voice makes the difference!. Warm, expressive and convincing tool for delivering his or other people's lyrics. Listen to John Prine's The Late John Garfield Blues or Steve Earle's Ellis Unit 1 and you'll know what I am talking about. His own songs are little less catchy, but very emotional. This album reminds me of Ryan Adams' Heartbreaker which is, according to myself, huge compliment. In his surrounding you'll find more hidden treasures - his friends Mark Erelli and Peter Mulvay and of course his wife, the one and only Kris Delmhorst.
