The Law -- Trigger (Local Boy Records)

 

Dundee 4 piece return with the follow up to their highly acclaimed 2009 debut, A Measure Of Wealth. Their sound has become more expansive and comparisons to many acts are there to hear on the sweeping vocals of Gimme Some Love (Fratellis & The View), the folksy rock of Holiday…

Album of the week: Dave Desmelik - Deep Down The Definition

http://www.davedesmelik.com/

A seventh album from North Carolinan Dave Desmelik, and he sounds like a man entirely comfortable following his own muse. By this point in a career, most artists have made a stab at making an album with some commercial savvy about it. To be fair, I’m only familiar with Dave Desmelik’s previous cd, Onlooker. That yielded one song…

John Lilly: Cold Comfort

www.johnlillymusic.com  

John Lilly has been lauded on Flyinshoes Review many times because in his own low-key, unassuming way he has seemed to be the truest modern embodiment of the music of Hank Williams and Jimmie Rodgers. Over several albums he has developed a knack of writing songs that sound half a century old, and has performed them with an…

Philipp Fankhauser -- Try My Love (Funk House Blues Production)

Often put in the same bracket as Chris Rea and John Mayer but not as well known, this is Swiss native Fankhauser’s twelfth album.  Try My Love is a selection of sympathetically produced songs that brings out the best in him. Songs such as the big band blues of Make My Home Where I Lay…

Kevin Dooley : Moonlight Highway

  

www.kdooley.com

Colorado blues/folk musician Kevin Dooley calls his particular brand of music "American Celtic". You'd guess the Irish heritage isn't very far away at all with a name like that, though Kevin sings with an American accent that sounds thick with tobacco juice - he could be one of those familiar faces (and voices) that pops up…

GRETCHEN PETERS —HELLO CRUEL WORLD (Proper Records)

What a wonderful surprise it was to hear fellow singer-songwriter, recording act Rodney Crowell join her on the song, ‘Dark Angel’. Like with a few more tracks it was love at first hearing.
