Cry Cry Cry | Wolf Parade

Cry Cry Cry | Wolf Parade

Album Review by James Kendall

Wolf Parade return after a seven-year hiatus with Cry Cry Cry. It’s a solid alternative-rock album that doesn’t stray too far from their established sound but still feels fresh. My favorites are: “You’re Dreaming,” “Incantation,” “Valley Boy,” and “Lazarus Online.”

I Tell A Fly | Benjamin Clementine

I Tell A Fly | Benjamin Clementine

Album Review by James Kendall

“In little words – it’s a story about two wandering flies finding fleet.
I am neither a politician nor prophet but,
an artist who creates to only entertain is no better than a con.
I hope this album fulfills its purpose.”

– Benjamin Clementine about his new album, I Tell A Fly.

Benjamin Clemetine’s sophmore release, I Tell A Fly, is like a musical piece of theatre for your ears. Sit back and enjoy the experience with Ben’s unique musical style guiding you through an unforgettable album. My favorites are: “Jupiter,” “God Save The Jungle,” “One Awkward Fish,” and “Ave Dreamer.”

Haiku From Zero | Cut Copy

Album Review by James Kendall

Cut Copy return with their best album since 2008’s In Ghost ColoursHaiku is a fun album full of jams that don’t let up at any point; the whole album just really works front to back. My favorites are: “Standing In The Middle of The Field,” “Living Upside Down,” “Black Rainbows,” and “Airborne.”

Sleep Well Beast | The National

Sleep Well Beast | The National

Album Review by James Kendall

“Forget it, nothing I change changes anything
I won’t let it, I won’t let it ruin my hair.”
Matt Berninger on “Walk It Back.”

The National’s latest album sees the band letting loose a little from their conventionally heavy-laden, melancholy sound. There’s still plenty of somber tracks throughout but some fresh new sounds emerge on tracks like, “Day I Die” and “Dark Side of the Gym.” They even experiment with some new instrumentations like the electronically driven “Walk It Back,” or the guitar solos that dominate “The System Only Dreams In Total Darkness.”
