Rather than isolating specific tracks, it’s better to take in this album in its entirety. Fans won’t be disappointed, and for the uninitiated, it’s a good starting point.
Fans of Mark Lanegan will love it, and it’s a great introduction to the guitar skills of Duke Garwood.
Scottish label Too Many Fireworks invited disparate musicians to interpret the work of Polish composer Frederyk Chopin. Classical music can be a little forbidding so a collection like this is to be welcomed.
It’s definitely more relaxed than other QOTSA albums. The album has many ‘groovers’ in the vein of Leg of Lamb or Make It Wit Chu.
This album is hardly going to recruit new fans, but it will have real appeal to anyone who enjoyed this band twenty years ago.
A Pale Horse Named Death are a goth-metal band featuring two ex-drummers from Type O Negative, Johnny Kelly and singer Sal Abruscato, and this is their second album. This sort of thing is…
Fraser McGowan is the man behind Caught In The Wake Forever, who released one of last year’s finer, if obscure albums. His latest EP, Cadder Falls is a move towards more ambient, even classical territory.

They are a remarkably consistent band, if risk averse. Probably one of the best collections of songs that will come out in 2013, but the accusations of all National songs sounding the same will ring ever louder.
We grabbed a quick word with Kevin Murphy afterwards, he mentioned that their next album would be released “at the end of the summer”. By the sounds of the new material aired, it should be worth looking out for.
