Ho for the Holidays a la Farraday.

My great friends, Farraday, did a take on the holiday classic “Baby, It’s Cold Outside”.

You can get the download, FOR FREE, here.

Cheers and I hope you have a fabulous holiday season!


Jet Black Sunrise, Falling LP.

The past several days I have been in a music coma.  Headphones on, volume up, and emotion tuned in.  The focus of my attention has been on Jet Black Sunrise.  They are a five-piece alternative rock band hailing from Boston, MA, and they recently released Falling, their debut LP.  It took over a year to come to fruition, but now that it’s here, it’s well worth the wait.  At first listen, my thought was, “When did The Hold Steady release a new album?”  And that is a high compliment.  There is definitely a symbiotic relationship among the musicians; feeding energy to one another and powering the songs from beginning to end.  And that compatibility is heard throughout the entire track listing, giving the album a certain je ne sais quoi.

Five musicians therefore five writers and five contributing voices…

May 20th – it’s HERE!

The day has finally come!  Farraday‘s five song EP, The Fear of Missing Out, has dropped.  You can pick up copies at their live show tonight at The Beat Kitchen in Chicago, or you can check out their album on iTunes or Amazon.


Here are my latest suggestions.  I will be giving the blog a new look and format in the near future, but for now, I leave you with some choice songs.  I am sorry for the extended disco absence, but I am back as the chaos of my life is finally calming down.  Please enjoy these tracks, and since I am thinking of renovating this wonderful website, I welcome comments and concerns and suggestions of your own!
