Sophisticated yet folk-tinged indie pop from Portland, with a literary edge provided by vocalist Colin Meloy. A collection of 9 CD, which includes six studio albums by The Decemberists, also 2 EP and one single.
For some aging music fans and kids with a passion for musical history, The Replacements are rock and roll defined. This Minneapolis quartet took a teenage-punk attitude, threw it in a blender with classic and pop rock, and then poured it into a Middle American pint glass.
Dark Lunacy is an Italian death metal band that crates their sound by mixing together both symphonic and melodic death metal, finding a solid footing between the two sub-genres. The Day of Victory makes for the band’s fifth full-length album release, and while it is a solid listen, it feels as if it could have been better. The band does have a decent bit of talent behind them as all the instrumentation throughout the album was good, I just found myself losing interest at points as the album progressed towards its conclusion. In my opinion it’s the song structure that holds The Day of Victory back from being a great listen.
In Search of Blind Joe Death: The Saga of John Fahey is a documentary film about the legendary American guitarist, composer and provocateur John Fahey, 1939-2001. Fahey is often considered the godfather of 'American primitive guitar'. This cinematic exploration features Pete Townshend, Chris Funk of The Decemberists and Joey Burns of Calexico. These stellar musicians, along with Fahey associates and friends such as the famous 'Dr. Demento', radio broadcaster Barry Hansen, explore the legacy of this profoundly influential artist. The film was recorded in the Washington D.C. area where John Fahey was born, along the Mississippi Delta from Memphis to New Orleans, in Los Angeles, Toronto, Austin, New York and in Oregon where Fahey spent his last two decades.
