3 Songs: On Repeat

Ryan Adams – “Doomsday” (On his highly-anticipated new album Prisoner, out today via Pax-Am/Blue Note, the shadow of his recent divorce looms, but Ryan Adams shades his country-leaning folk-rock with shimmering 80’s soft-rock textures as heard here on the standout single.  Elsewhere, he plays up his Grateful Dead and arena-rock influences for his best album in years.)     

Carousel Kings – “Bad Habit” (The Lancaster, PA pop-punkers recently released their third album, Charm City, making their label debut for Victory Records.  The quartet brings a positive and inspiring message alongside their energetic sound that blends A Day To Remember-like heaviness with catchy, world-burning melodies that recall Jimmy Eat World.  Also, Dustin Davidson of hometown heroes August Burns Red contributes vocals to a track.  Catch them on tour now!)

Other Houses – “Space Is The Place” (In addition to his other projects Medium Mystic and Hollow Sunshine, Brooklyn singer-songwriter/multi-instrumentalist Morgan Eros is proving to be very prolific. Just five weeks after his last release as Other Houses, he released a new EP, titled Jangle Omega.  The 6-song EP is an intelligently crafted White Album-inspired jangle-fest that leans more toward acoustic folk-pop with traces of Elliot Smith’s melancholic melodies for his best collection of songs yet.)
