2010 release from the Swedish Popsters, their first full-length album in three years. With drummer Lisa Milberg taking over lead vocals from the departed Victoria Bergsman, WYWH takes the Concretes' sound into a dreamy Disco-fied direction. It's not Disco in the old euphoric '70s way, but in a Concretes way: dreamy and beautiful, but with a pulsing, hypnotic backbeat that is a new and welcome addition to the band's signature sound. It's Disco that exists somewhere in the space between smiles and tears. Disco dreaming of being elsewhere.

Rhino Bucket joins forces with producer Eddie Spaghetti (Supersuckers) to deliver “The Last Real Rock n’ Roll,” a blistering collection of raw, Bon Scott-era boogie rock! Original members Georg Dolivo and Reeve Downes are joined by Brian “Damage” Forsythe (Kix) and ace drummer Dave DuCey on the Bucket’s seventh studio album. Georg – “Eddie came in and reminded us to be the band we were… bad ass.He matched us note for note with his fercious talent and insight!”
"Until All The Ghosts Are Gone" is the long awaited album from Anekdoten, a wait of eight years since the excellent "A Time Of Day" (2007). Fortunately it's been worth the wait as it's as good as and sometimes better than most of their back catalogue. It's clearly recognisably Anekdoten with no great leaps in style. The haunting and melancholic melodies, the dynamic rhythm section and of course the ever present Mellotron. "Until All The Ghosts Are Gone" is a crowning achievement for Anekdoten, one of the absolute standout progressive rock albums of 2015.

Perhaps the most telling tune on Shoulda Been Home is the T-Bone Walker-influenced "Renew Blues," not because of the style, but because the slow blues fades out after just one tiny minute. By contrast, the mellow soul sway of "Out of Eden" stretches out to over nine minutes. Robert Cray has been heralded as a savior of modern blues, but the truth is Cray's music is much closer to the vintage soul of O.V. Wright and Otis Redding than the 12-bar form of B.B. King or Albert King. Granted, his punctuating Stratocaster guitar riffs borrow from the books of all the blues masters, but his songwriting and arranging don't. Often backed by arpeggiated guitar chords, Cray's vocals are front and center here, passionately leaning into these predominantly slow or mid-tempo tunes. By contrast, only a couple of cuts are upbeat enough to really get the knees a-shakin'. The infectious opening cut "Baby's Arms" – the best tune on the record – could have been a hit single for Stax Records, and Sir Mack Rice's upbeat "Love Sickness" was a hit for Stax Records. Meanwhile, "Help Me Forget," with its mellow, candlelight mood, could have been a hit for Barry White.
