Recordings

This is country music as it was meant to be played before Music City went sour once and for all.
The Savoys’ rosy dreaminess goes straight to your head, carrying you away to amp-washed la-la land and inviting you to stay.
Few releases are as cathartic as the ones where someone has hit Record and then paid zero attention to the fact the input-level needles are firmly stuck in the red.
For the latest offering, the MC took inspiration from ’90s rap.
The songs are all pretty straightforward and not exactly sophisticated, but are delivered with passion and gusto and whatever the female equivalent of “balls”.
Despite the title, this folk-rockin’ EP brings us five new tunes from Jeremy Allingham.
Harbours becomes more interesting when we’re reminded that Rysstad is basically an indie-rock guy who found his way here through garage punk and a stint in Vancouver’s mighty Jolts.
We Found a Lovebird’s sound doesn’t owe much, if anything, to ’80s L.A. hardcore.
If anyone in town is up for some role-playing sci-fi action, it’d probably put a smile on Tim the Mute’s face.
To be sure, sadness is the set’s strong suit.
