Spitalfield: Better Than Knowing Where You Are (2006) Andrew has been asking me to listen to this disc for quite some time now so I'm sure he's glad it's finally getting done. I've never heard anything from these guys before but they have a few other albums out and a decent following. After giving the album a once over listen I'm not sure why these guys aren't more popular/mainstream? Seraphin...get out there and promote these guys some more! But seriously, the songs are great and I could hear these guys on the radio no doubt. I'm racking my brain to try and think of a band they sound similar to...but I can't seem to put my finger on it. If you're looking for something new for the iPod (or iPhone for those techies out there), give this a download. You won't be disappointed.
The Tossers: Agony (2007) Irish punk/folk music at its best here. These guys sound like they're right off the boat, but apparently they hail from Chicago, believe it or not. Most of the songs have the same fast, repetitive drum beat that goes on and on and on and that my friends made we change the songs quickly. Just too much of the same for my liking. They also tend to sing a lot about social issues but with the accents they have (real or fake?) it becomes somewhat difficult to actually understand what they're saying. I know that some of you have given me flack for not liking an album "just because" but guess what...it's my site and if i don't like it, I don't like it. This disc is one of those that just doesn't do it for me. Sometimes that's all the reason you're gonna get! Understood?
Moros Eros: i saw the devil last night and now the sun shines bright (2006) Rock, pop and a bit of techno all mixed together with a European flair. Unfortunately, not my bag at all. I'll be honest...I only listened to the first 4 songs of this one and then shut it down. Thems the breaks.
