Avi Buffalo – Avi Buffalo

Avi Buffalo -Avi Buffalo Indie pop with psychedelic swirls from a bunch of 19 years old kids.  Maybe I’m getting old, but kids this young just shouldn’t be able to make music this mature.  That being said, immature track titles such as  Five Little Sluts and Summer Cum set my mind at ease…it seems...

The Roots – How I Got Over

The Roots – How I Got Over It’s been over 8 years since The Roots put out an album that comes close to their live experience.   After witnessing  their stage show, I always felt their recorded material fell flat.  How I Got Over does not seem flat at all.  Quality hip-hop has been hard...

Nas & Damian Marley – Distant Relatives

Nas & Damian Marley – Distant Relatives Full disclosure:  I like almost anything Nas does and think he’s the true King of East Coast Hip-Hop.  I am intrigued by the dark continent.  I do not like reggae music.  That being said, I am really feeling this album lately.  Is it a classic?  No.  Is...

The Tallest Man on Earth – Wild Hunt

The Tallest Man On Earth – Wild Hunt Disappointing at first, this album has grown on me.  I still don’t think it’s as good as Shallow Grave, but it’s definitely one of the best folk albums I’ve heard in some time.  Like Deer Tick or early Dylan, you’ll either love or hate The Tallest...
