(my year in other people’s music. here’s 2013)
My album of the year (although from 2013). Glad I discovered this. Great guitar tone by Greg Howe and awesome vocals. It’s not a shred record but great songs, great arrangements and very tasty guitar playing.
A great guitarist (George Lynch), an underrated drummer (Ray Luzier) and the awesome Dug Pinnick on vocals and bass. Another super group, this years Winery Dogs. Great record.
Lynch Mob – Sun Red Sun
24 years after one of my favorite records, Wicked Sensations, they do it again. George Lynch and Oni Logan with great songs. 2 great albums by George Lynch in one year.
Props to Brian Sword. If you like rock’n’roll you have to listen, a musicians podcast.
I wasn’t so sure I’d like this but Slash, Myles Kennedy and producer Elvis Baskette made a great record, solid rock music that will stand the test of time.
I had high expectations for this since Are You With Me Now is one of my favorite songs and has been for some time. Modern Vintage isn’t quite there yet but still growing. Well produced as to be expected.
I discoverd Vulfpeck with Vollmilch last year and this year’s Fugue State is just so good. Lush. Jazzy but accessible. Easy listening but so not vanilla.
„We have listened to Karnivool and Tool.“ Great record for darker days, Hamburg Export I think. Going to be great year for them.
Can’t go wrong with this, amazing voice, mellow.
I love it.
How had I not heard of Dave? Probably because I am not such a fan of Pink Floyd and personnel. But he’s a great player and needs to be heard more.
Finally. A little too pop for me but great to see them out there, hope to catch them live soon.
I am not so big on the concept album part, but they just rock. Trio, so important I take notice…
Not just another album. Worth listening.
Cause it’s the Foo Fighters.
Also new to my head phones but not from 2014:
Another support band that took the main stage. Great musicianship, rhythmically challenging, great drumming.
Old project from KXM/Korn drummer Ray Luzier. Great rock album.
Punk ska-ish, very fresh.
Old Richie Kotzen project, very r’n’b soul, almost Motown.
