Robbie Fulks – Country Love Songs (180 Gram Vinyl, Digital Download Card)
I would have to say there aren’t too many artist out there like Robbie Fulks and there aren’t too many albums like his “Country Love Songs.”
You will find yourself asking pondering questions like, “Is this country?,” “What exactly is Fulks talking about in Nickels and Dimes?,” and the ever popular and probing, “What were Fulks musical influences and what chemicals influenced Fulks music?” The answer my friend may be blowing in the wind, but I would posit that Fulks music reflects true Country roots more so than the majority of popular drivel churned out by Nashville these days.
You will find unique songs like “The Scrapple Song,” that espouses the culinary delights hailing from Pennsylvania of all sorts of pig parts fried in a big baking pan. Granted it’s not pork chops served off a front porch in Appalachia or Texas hill country, but it is a story to be told. Curiously enough “The Scrapple Song,” and other fare on Fulks “Country Love Songs,” comes off as this curious bastard child of Bob Wills and AC/DC. Country with a kick of “Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap”.
There are songs on this album that immediately get into your mind and will find you singing along to that high lonesome wail upon second plays. Where Fulks truly makes his mark though are on the songs that are country through and through like “The Buck Stops Here,” “Barely Human,” and “Papa was a Steel Headed Man.” Speaking of the album’s closer, “Papa,” it’s Fulks answer to Madonna’s “Papa Don’t Preach.” There is a wonderfully apocalyptic moment when the song reduces itself to church pipe organ and Fulks rants rails and raves end of times, tent revival, hail and brimstone, gospel preacher style deconstructing the simple obstinateness of a father that was stubborn to the point of de-humanization. He could either be regarded as the meanest man on earth or a genius. It is a musical moment that is difficult to live down and luckily we don’t have to since we have Fulks, “Country Love Songs,” to listen to again and again, it is a must listen, don’t miss out on Fulks original and back to basics music. – Albert Schmurr

Tycho – Weather (Indie Exclusive Clear Vinyl)
I’ll admit it. I was skeptical when I heard that their would be vocals (GASP!) on the next Tycho record. Vocals just don’t belong on Tycho music, right?
Not according to Scott Henson. Who am I to argue with Tycho’s composer, songwriter, musician and producer – this has been his creation since 2006, and Tycho has been an evolution of sorts with every release. According to Hansen, his vision since the beginning was “to incorporate the most organic instrument of all – the human voice”. If anyone can make vocals work on ambient chillwave, it’s Scott.
His latest album “Weather” succeeds! – BUT – at 45rpm (don’t make the same mistake I made by instinctively spinning at 33rpm). Female vocalist, Saint Sinner (aka Hannah Cottrell), contributes the breathy, delicate melodies on Tycho’s familiar soundscapes. The opening track, entitled “Easy”, actually eases the listener into this unfamiliar territory, with sparse vocal placement within that familiar Tycho sound. Then “Pink & Blue” introduces Saint Sinner front and center.
Skepticism quelled. Her voice is not overbearing and is just as ambient as the music; reminds me of highly acclaimed vocalists Imogen Heap from Frou Frou and Ivy’s Dominique Durand. Saint Sinner sings on 5 of the 8 album tracks. My personal favorite vocal track is Side B opener, “Skate”. It’s similar to a lull-a-bye with only a guitar and a synth line behind her. And the appropriately titled track “No Stress” closes the loop on the vocal tracks.
The side closing instrumentals, “Into The Woods” and “Weather” respectively, provide the familiar synth melodies and instrumentation we’ve come to know and love from Tycho, making this a well-rounded fifth full length release. Awaken your curiosity…if past is prologue, then dive into this uncharted epoch musical storm…you will weather the changes. -David Lombardo
