Future Nostalgia by The Sheepdogs

Upon learning this Canadian group plays good old-fashioned rock ‘n’ roll, and being a huge fan of artists like Neil Young and Bob Dylan, I had to listen for myself. I was not disappointed. I could have sworn the trippy opening guitar licks to “Jim Sullivan” was the beginning to “Dear Prudence” by The Beatles. Other songs on this album can be confused with some by REO Speedwagon. And I would’ve insisted that some amazing organ work could’ve been performed by Gregg Allman of The Allman Brothers. If you’ve worn a hole in your classic rock albums, try these guys. You’ll be rocking out in no time.

Cranekiss by Tamaryn

New Zealand-born Tamaryn’s breathy vocals and electronic dream-pop harkens back to the glorious ‘80s/early ‘90s synth revolution. But this latest offering sounds quite fresh. If you’re in the mood to listen to airy soundscapes with a definite pop feel, give it a listen. I listened to this album while I did some writing and came away with a peaceful, upbeat feeling. This album is so delicate, you may not even realize such luscious sounds are pouring into your ear until it’s all over and somehow you’re more a bit more energized.
