Topic: Gorgeous (album)


In the News (Wed 24 Jul 19)

  
  For The Sound [dot] com : The World Is Listening - Album Reviews
In addition, the group explores a more serious topic on this album which is likely a reflection of their maturation over the past year; though barely out of high school, they do a great job covering such a morbid subject without sounding cheesy or pretentious at all.
The beauty of this album, though hard to pinpoint at first, seems to be in the details that subtly establish the richness of Drop Dead, Gorgeous’ sound.
Though this album is practically the definition of the post-hardcore genre, the band sets themselves apart with minor tweaks here and there, such as Danny Cooper’s drum fills or the range of qualities in Danny Stillman’s voice.

  Bar/None Records: Edwyn Collins   (Site not responding. Last check: )
The single, off the album Gorgeous George, went top 10 in six other countries before gaining widespread airplay in the U.S. But this country catches up fast: surely hitting top 10 of Billboard's Heat Seeker's Chart, inclusion in MTV's buzz bin and airtime on Melrose Place can amend our belated recognition of Collins' genius.
Gorgeous George he self-produced and completed in his London studio; as for the rest, well...
Gorgeous George is Collins' first album to be released in the states.

The album certainly reflects this, especially the tracks Emma penned on her own.
This is proven on the album’s third track, The Glock Song, a delightful ballad that both empowers and enriches.
At the moment, Gorgeous is one of those hidden treasures only a select few are aware of, but hopefully the girls will be unleashing their music upon the world soon, Emma said.

 Review | Let It Rain by Tracy Chapman
While each of her albums convey a unique honesty and integrity, only this latest release captures a sound that does justice to the distinct and immediately gripping melancholy of her voice, deeply resonant with the Mississippi Delta's legendarily ghostly blues or the harrowing, brokenhearted chant of an Alabama chain gang.
Chapman's enduring refusal to produce her albums to death, despite her big deal with Elektra, is an act of heroism, with Let it Rain standing as her most courageous effort yet.
Some songs, such as the gorgeously fragile title track or the raw, barn-stomping and angry "Hard Wired," are like listening to a brokenhearted woman's whispered prayers from the other side of a bedroom wall.

DC2: Bars of Death, the new album from Boston hip-hop duo 7L & Esoteric, is nominally a sequel to their 2002 album Dangerous Connection; its cover art continues this notion of sonic cinema, with "co-starring" credits for guest MCs and a striking, retro fashionplate design.
On each of their recent albums he's just about stolen the show with a song or two, and he does the same here with "In the Satellite Rides a Star," a quietly complicated country ballad filled with hurt.
The Waxwings are still doing what they did on their first two albums - that is, they're looking to the past for inspiration, but not out of fashion or style interests but because there were rock bands in the past who cared about songcraft, who could deliver great melodies while rocking you up and down.

 Gorgeous: Album Reviews, Biography - MOG   (Site not responding. Last check: )
This is the first official release for the oddball Midlands based iconoclasts who were formed by notorious indie maverick Peter Byrchmore – a man whose varied career to date has been responsible for ten or so indie chart hits and a brace or so of proper grown up chart moments.
Peter’s guitar and vocalising is supported by Maria Harvey, (another ex ‘gale), who plays the keyboards and also sings beautifully, Abi Bruton and her shiny trombone, Rick Shaw,(honest) Sax God, John McQueen and his big bass guitars and Andy Nicklin who plays the drum kit.
Tired of a relentless diet of gutless, opinion free musical posturing, G.O.R.G.E.O.U.S make a gleefully opinionated, energetic, hook laden racket and are content to offer their intriguing views couched in dry, fl wit rather than ram received opinions down throats.

 CD Baby: THE DEARHUNTERS: Red Wine and Blue
The fact that there are four songwriters in the band certainly lends this debut album diversity but there is a common spirit to all twelve tracks.
In fact Oxley has a knack for writing seventies ode country pop and the album opens and closes with two such pieces, Mr Katherine and Alien Ship.__Phillis has also caught the country vibe, though there are traces of The Clouds in a number of her songs.
Well yes but this is a twelve track album and things do waver around the middle, but not before the layered harmonies of Ballerina (somewhat like the similarly experimental Everything Means Nothing To Me by Elliott Smith) and the Dennis Wilson-esque falsetto of Another Heart maintain the impeccable standards set by the opening quartet.

 The Postal Service: Give Up: Pitchfork Review   (Site not responding. Last check: )
And there were my frequent, semi-coherent rants about how "Evan and Chan" was not only one of the best songs of 2001, but perhaps the perfect synthesis of IDM production and indie pop songwriting.
The thought of further collaboration between Tamborello and Gibbard, however, never crossed my mind, so when I heard last year that they were collaborating on another single, I shit a brick-- and when it was later revealed that the single had evolved into a full-length album, I practically shit a whole firehouse.
While it may be impressive that the unified and cohesive vision of Give Up was the result of a par avion collaboration, it's anything but surprising given the talent behind it and the immense chemistry shared by these two musicians.

While each Chapman album conveys a unique honesty and integrity, only this latest release captures a sound that does justice to the distinct and immediately gripping melancholy of her voice, deeply resonant with the Mississippi Delta's legendarily ghostly blues or the harrowing, broken-hearted chant of an Alabama chain gang.
With success comes the pressure for continued success, however, and while the catchy single "Telling Stories" from 2000's album of the same name made for a compelling listen, still the album's most memorable tunes are confined to its concluding handful of stripped-down ballads.
Some songs, such as the gorgeously fragile title track or the raw, barn-stomping and angry "Hard Wired," are like listening to a broken-hearted woman's whispered prayers from the other side of a bedroom wall.

 Samba Cancao - Slipcue.Com Brazilian Music Guide
Her style of "samba antigua" is just gorgeous, especially when blended in with modernized touches, such as the large melodic choruses, as well as Pixinguinha's outstanding, virtuoso playing.
The driving force behind the album is Phonomotor label head, Marisa Monte, whose father was head of the Portela escola in the 1960s, but while she bankrolled the project, she remains very much in the background, singing in the chorus, but content merely to document, not to dominate.
This album originally came out at the height of the MPB years, although there was also a resurgent pagode samba revival going on, which this disc fits into quite nicely.
