Musikanto Revisited

It's that time of year again, and I'm being to look back through the local releases for 2011. A released that I recently cam across and had overlooked is Sky of Dresses by Musikanto. This is honest and hard-working Americana in it's simplest form, and it is done so well on this release. The album was released back in August through the local label Grape Juice Records. If you had missed it as well check out his video for "Every Which Way".


Joe Pug Live from Lincoln Hall

Last week Joe Pug released a live album of a set that was recorded at Lincoln Hall last Spring. The 17 track released can be found here, and it is a nice document of what Pug has been able to accomplish over the last three years. Pug is currently putting the finishing touches on his next studio album. The album will be called The Great Despiser and is scheduled to be released this Spring.

Soft Speaker @ Empty Bottle

Back on November 8th Soft Speaker released their second full-length album Vortobos. The album, which features a cover by one of my favorite local artists Jason Brammer, is a nice step forward for rock band. It is filled solid guitar riffs, well-crafted tales, and solid production. You can hear the band discuss the album on Vocalo's MusicVox here.

You can catch Soft Speaker with Crystal Stilts and Hollow tomorrow night, Dec. 2nd, at Empty Bottle.
