3 Songs: On Repeat

Jeremy Pinnell – “Different Kind Of Love” (Out today on Sofaburn Records is Jeremy Pinnell’s sophomore album Ties Of Blood And Affection.  The excellent new album was recorded live to analog tape and the Kentucky-based singer-songwriter continues to perfect his classic Country & Western sound highlighted by his honest, personal songwriting that deals with themes of family and faith.  The aching pedal steel and twangy guitar lines that wind around Pinnell’s melodies like a back country road serve as the perfect companion to his whiskey-soaked voice.)          

Downtown Boys – “Lips That Bite” (For Cost of Living - their third album - the Providence, RI punk rock band moves to Sub Pop and have recorded with Fugazi’s Guy Picciotto.  Their music is both infectiously fun and wildly confrontational, creating anthemic protest songs that you can dance to with saxophone and synths adding color to their wall-crushing grooves.  Lyrically, they are bi-lingual and aim to open minds and confront the latent racism, greedy capitalism and other oppressive powers that are destroying our world.)

The Lurking Fear – “Vortex Spawn” (The Lurking Fear are a new death metal supergroup-of-sorts  led by vocalist Tomas Lindberg of At The Gates along with Jonas Stålhammar of God Macabre and Bombs Of Hades, Fredrik Wallenberg of Skitsystem and Andreas Axelson of Disfear  and Tormented.  Their debut album, Out Of The Voiceless Grave is out today on Century Media Records.  Their retro-minded sound mines the old school sounds of early Slayer, Death and Morbid Angel; paying humble homage to their influences while putting their own distinct mark on their music with dense Swedish-style riffs and blackened vocals.)
