Recent Singer-Songwriter album reviews

With Angel Olsen’s latest album “Half Way Home,” the Chicago songstress channels the dynamic compositional chops and dramatic vocal range of the late Roy Orbison coupled with a style entirely her own. From the first song, “Acrobat,” it is clear that Olsen is in a league all by herself. Her phrasing, lyrics and vocal style all seem to come unfiltered from an interior zone unburdened by the weight of current trends or any sign of self-pity.

Amidst a sea of mediocre vocal talents, you may be shocked when you hear a woman who can actually sing.Never heard (more…)

It’s Record Review Time!

BostonSkylineRecords.com turns its keen eye on new releases and tells you what’s worth your money. We’ll start with the impressive box-set Coals to Newcastle, a complete retrospective of British post-punk group Orange Juice. The set comes from Domino Records, a British indie label started in 1993. Given our penchant for classic underground music, sets like these often catch our eye, but Coals to Newcastle stands out from some others thanks to an important detail: the music. Orange Juice truly epitomized the term “alternative,” combining the popular post-punk sound with funk and pop. The box-set has a retail price of 70not bad for a compilation of the band’s early singles, a CD of radio sessions, four remastered studio albums, and a bonus DVD.A slightly-later, slightly-more popular indie rock group returned in 2010Superchunk, presenting their ninth studio album Majesty Shredding. The band manages to retain their early energy and style, even though it’s been nine years since the band’s last album, 2001′s Here’s to Shutting Up. Some listeners today may not even be familiar with the band, even though several bands on their label have achieved indie superstar status (The Arcade Fire, Spoon, and She & Him among them). As a reintroduction to a seminal group, and one of the greatest bands to ever come out of North Carolina, Majesty Shredding is well worth plunking down a few dollars for. (more…)
