“Two Hands” is their second album of 2019 and including vocalist/songwriter/guitarist Adrienne Lenker’s solo album from last October that’s three albums in one year. Considering that each is better than the last this is the rapid emergence of an important band.
There’s an abundance of everything on her new album “Threads.” There’s a lot of songs, 17, a lot of music 75 minutes worth, and an a-list group of collaborators whose performances are as jaw-dropping as the fact that they are all on one album.
Her new album “Gypsy” is a tug of war of emotions as songs of politics and dissent push and pull at songs about happiness and empathy, putting into words and music the daily struggle of the human condition.
Since their last album rock and roll hasn’t had much to rally around, but “Let’s Rock” shows the way forward with it’s fuzz guitar riffs smothered in digital processing, vocals overdubs that capture the frenzy of the moment and a voodoo bass and drum rhythm section.
"Heartbreak City" is Apex Manor’s first album in eight years, during that time Ross Flournoy, the bands leader faltered, then righted himself and returns to music with a new outlook; sober and ready to share his conviction to stay that way.
“I Am Easy To Find” is the eighth release for this brooding and melancholy band and, if possible, their music has become even more cinematic with the addition of an Oscar winning filmmaker overseeing the production.
