Jeff Bird - Rhythm And Entertainment (Album Review)

In 1987, multi-instrumentalist Jeff Bird entered the Church of the Holy Trinity in downtown Toronto to lend accompaniment to a young band called Cowboy Junkies. The results of that day became The Trinity Session, one of the most acclaimed records of the decade. Bird has been a fixture on the band's subsequent albums and tours…See More

Catching Up With Noelle Scaggs From Fitz & the Tantrums

There's no shortage of band's seeking inspiration in the stacks of vinyl records released by Motown and Stax. Retro will always have a certain charm to it but the best bands use that inspiration to create a new sound. Fitz & the Tantrums have proven over two records that the music they love can be taken in fresh new…See More

Q&A With Mailani

Already a success in Hawai'i when she decided to become a solo artist, Mailani's self-titled debut album earned her the prestigious Female Vocalist Of the Year award in 2010, one of her three No Hoko Honohano awards to date. Her second album, Aina, moved closer to traditional Hawaiian roots music and this year's Manawa completes the journey and establishes her at the forefront of contemporary Hawaiian music. I caught up with Mailani to talk about life as a musician and the influence of her…See More

CD Review - Piranha Brothers "The Blinding Speed Of Trust"

Entering their fourth decade as a working band, Piranha Brothers are not going to suddenly sell a million records and headline SXSW in Austin. False starts and broken promises litter their career like any band that has tried to navigate the tumultuous waters of the music industry. There were two albums, released on MCA's imprint in Japan and probably harder to find than Robert Johnson's skeleton. Leaving behind their Chicago roots in 1992, the band took up residency in Hawaii and have spent the…See More

REVIEW: Cowboy Junkies - The Wilderness

Cowboy Junkies - The Wilderness Latent RecordingsOn The Wilderness, Cowboy Junkies bring their four-album Nomad Series to a stunning end with one of their finest records to date. The band has always been at their best when the music and songwriting dance together like two lost souls clinging to a shadow of hope. Lay It Down (1996) and At The End of Paths Taken (2007) are two Cowboy Junkies albums that strike that perfect balance. The Wilderness delivers an equally powerful experience with a…See More

"That's an intriguing review - I was a big fan until Pale Sun which was a long time ago. After reading this I'm going to give them another listen - I'll let you know the results."

Cowboy Junkies - Sing In My Meadow (Review)

When R.E.M. called it quits, the band talked about walking away having maintained their artistic integrity throughout a 30-year career. As Cowboy Junkies pass the quarter century mark, the Toronto band must rest well at night. The band’s consistent work flies under the radar more times than not and the band sounds content with keeping it that way. With volume three of the band’s ambitious four-album Nomad Series, Cowboy Junkies bring their touring unit into the studio and capture the road-worn…See More

Cowboy Junkies - Demons

Cowboy JunkiesDemonsLatent Recordings The Cowboy Junkies have been a consistently perplexing source of music for over two decades. From album to album, the music finds its breath in the shadows of rock, folk, blues, post-punk, alt-country, and pop. It’s an endlessly interesting catalog that explores new textures and themes while somehow always sounding like the same band that cut a low-fidelity collection of blues covers in their garage in 1986. Last year, the band released Renmin Park, volume…See More

Damngivers commented on Jason Lent's blog post 'Live Review: Cyndi Lauper Sings The Blues'
"I'm glad for her. But one thing I remembered even from those early days was her voice. She's got a full octave range (or had) and she began in a rock-a-billy band, if I'm remembering correctly. I have the lucky fortune to do work with…"

"Cyndi can sing anything, (since her debut, "She's So Unusual", she's put out jazz, punk, disco, and...well, you name it, she's done it...I think something like 20ish or more records in all...) I don't think she was…"
