Adult Mom – Momentary Lapse of Happily – Music Review

Adult Mom Momentary Lapse of Happily Tiny Engines “I can’t remember the last time I enjoyed the snow” getting older always means enjoying things less and less, life seems to be more annoying than magical. What was once an occasion to play and build in the snow, has become a tiresome chore and a pain in the ass. Second song clinches it for me, but at the beginning I was feeling some Liz Phair vibes. That’s good I like liz’s music. The singer has a pleasing voice, and while it can be sing songy at times, that is never a problem or minus. It just seems that not all of us have a voice touched by Jebus. I would guess her to be in her early 30’s or late 20’s because you only speak of such things when you are still young enough to be swallowed up by regret and feel like you an do something about it. While Liz Phair was trying to identify with the parts of herself that felt like they had to be with someone otherwise she was unidentifiable. Adult mom seems to have just started the process of being alone and questioning herself and relationships with others. What that means and the feelings you have at say 28 and how they are different from first being in love and loss. She’s thinking a lot about this other person it must have been a significant relationship. Liz Phair jumped on the scene having thoughts of chasing men, and how that defined her, what she was in relation to men and what it meant to be a free open woman. Adult mom sings from the perspective of a love burnt out older woman wondering if just thinking about that person means anything and will anyone ever think about her? **incomprehensible shit, that’s what his college English professor said about everything he put to paper or computer. Nothings changed. So take this essay/review with a handful of air. Check out Adult mom on your own, and then you can say you found some quality music without the help of some know it all dick.

Why+the+Wires- Flame Failures – Music Review

Why+the+wires Flame Failure jetsam-flotsam.com Like the sax. Reminds me at times of early replacements. The energy and fuck it all attitude. Only I don’t mean they don’t give a shit about the music. I mean the fuck it all attitude where your playing and it doesn’t matter where it’s going or how it’s going to end up, you’re just happy to be there creating. That’s enjoyable to listen too. Controlled brilliant cacaphonic beauty. I like the slow build at the beginning of “The arm will lead the way”. I like their energy, really I could play any song from this release. I like the way the band uses horns in their songs. “Paperbark Boston” has an engine go, turbo boost opening to it that I like. Would be a good band to see live, can feel the energy off this record. The horns would really open it up live. I will admit to tapping my toe to the beat. Reminds me a bit , a bit of Morphine. Also with a little bit of Tom Waits for flavor. I know I’ve said this before about why+the+wires, but I get good vibes from this release, and this band. I know why, at least why I dig it, its got swing and a beat. No really. It’s got a swinging swagger to it, driven by the punchy back beat. Plus this band is smart, they break into your room late at night, set up their instruments, then kick on the lights. Start rocking and swinging for a few minutes, get their gear and jump out the window into the lonely, cold, dark night. “What the hell was that? You ask. “ I don’t know but it kicked some rocking ass” you say to yourself wondering if what just happened was a beautiful dream where you’re in a small club, seeing a good band for the first time. You can almost smell the sweat when your dad comes running down the hall wondering what the clatter was. Just as he bursts in the door, you fake sleep with a knowing smile on your face. Real or not, you wish your alarm clock had that setting so you can wake up with a burst of energy and swang everyday. *This review was written by someone who thinks he’s clever, someone with limited musical ability, therefore his opinion’s are not only dumb, but a total waste of time. I mean, come on, he can’t...
