Nickel EyeThe Time Of The Assassins

February 12, 2009

Debut for the solo project of The Strokes’ bass player, Nikolai Fraiture. It’s much less rocking in comparison to The Strokes; this has more of a singer-songwriter/folk vibe to it. Fairly decent, though no track stands out too much. I prefer fellow Strokes member Albert Hammond, Jr.’s solo output. http://www.myspace.com/officialnickeleye Advertisements

Drazy HoopsInto The Red

January 29, 2009

His seventh full-length. It’s singer-songwriter pop/rock with alt-country influences. He has a deep voice, in the same vein as Nick Cave/Tom Waits/the dudes in American Music Club and The National. It’s nice pleasant music. Guitarist Sean Eden has also played with Luna. http://www.myspace.com/drazyhoops http://www.drazyhoops.com

Tyler RamseyA Long Dream About Swimming Across The Sea

February 2, 2008

This guy is opening for and playing with Band of Horses on their upcoming tour, and this choice seems logical. This is much slower than Band of Horses and is acoustic, country/folk, but his voice is reminiscent of the Band of Horses’ lead singer. Very mellow. He also does a cover of Jackson Browne’s “These […]

AA BondyAmerican Hearts

January 25, 2008

The new solo album from AA Bondy, who is actually Scott Bondy, who used to be the lead singer of the alt/indie band, Verbena. This is acoustic, stripped-down folk music that has country and blues influences. His voice is reminiscent of Patrick Park. Very laid-back, music to play if you are just going to relax […]
