Dirty Sound Magnet – Western Lies (2017) – Review

Buy with Amazon!

RockmusicRaider Review - Dirty Sound Magnet - Western Lies - Album CoverYou’ve got bands that stick to their guns like there is no tomorrow. And they will always rehash what was before until their days run out. Comfort in sounds and numbers, right? And truly, for some it pays off. They fill stadiums with fans wanting nothing more than to listen to the same shit all over again. Mind you, these bands are good at what they do and a lot of fans like precisely that level of comfort.

Then you have others with a distinct taste for risk and change, the ones opening doors that were closed before. Darting off to take yonder foggy pathways that nobody knows where they will lead.Got hooked? Raid this some more...

Steven Wilson – Hand. Cannot. Erase. (2015) – Review

Rockmusicraider Review - Steven Wilson - Hand. Cannot. Erase. - Album Cover2015 is over and now I continue to unearth all these hidden gems that somehow went missing last year. And I am unhappy to say that I really missed that one.

Hand. Cannot. Erase. from Progressive Rock adept Steven Wilson is a very special piece of work. It comes – at least in parts – across kind of similar in the djent heavy style of the latest Leprous record The Congregation, grungily mixing some Strawbs-ish elements into its tune. In fact you will find a lot of early progressive hooks on this disc. All the more endearing, as they don’t make ’em quite like this anymore these days.Got hooked? Raid this some more...

Dirty Sound Magnet – The Bloop (2014) – Review

RockmusicRaider Review - Dirty Sound Magnet - The Bloop - Album CoverGotta love them! ‘The Bloop’ sounds like stuff we already heard really and felt somewhere, but when? Ah, back in the ’70s – evidently. In yonder times when laid back and cool Rock was in fashion. Southern Bluesy Tunes that really relax you – good for the soul after all that complicated Metal stuff that I recently listened to.

Like getting yourself a bucket of shrimp down at the beach near New Orleans. And then chillin’ out some later with a cold beer in a beach chair getting your jelly-belly burned. Or just hanging out after a tough day at work. Bubba Gump anyone?

Flavors of Jimy Hendrix here, some essence of Led Zeppelin there, sprinkled with some Pink Floyd.
