Description:

Over the course of a decade and a half and four albums, Little Barrie have proven themselves to be masters of the power trio. They throw the blues, hard rock, psychedelia, and good-old album rock in a blender and end up with a brew that’s both familiar and sounds sparklingly new. Their fifth album, Death Express, is the first that Little Barrie produced themselves, and it’s their most immediate and atmospheric yet. Recording at their own pace in their practice space, the bandmembers were able to spend time honing their songs and sound to a fine point. When they emerged, it was with a batch of songs that bludgeon the listener with heavy riffs and thunderous drums, the moody tunes creeping in the shadows while sporting a menacing snarl. Guitarist Barrie Cadogan pulls out every trick he’s learned along the way, but never plays an excess note. Everything he does is in service to the song or the mood, not to show off his formidable skills. Drummer Virgil Howe and bassist Lewis Wharton are also unselfish sorts, and provide a rock-solid rhythm section that also has plenty of flash when called upon to step to the front. The album is long at 20 songs, but to the trio’s credit, the energy never flags. Like a mighty boulder gathering speed as it rolls down a mountain, the album alternates between window-rattling rockers (“You Won’t Stop Us” and the super hooky “Love or Love”), nasty laid-back workouts (“I.5.C.A.”), scathing prog funk jams (“Vulture Swarm”), and strutting songs that sound like blueprints for a (really good) Black Crowes comeback album (the title track and “Mind Mountain,” which is built out of their killer riff that serves as the theme to Better Call Saul). The trio never falters or hits a bum note throughout the album, and if — like in the past — the focus is more on atmosphere than songcraft, that’s OK, because the atmosphere they create is so thick and fuzzy, like a favorite old album from the early ’70s lovingly cleaned up but still a little scruffy. It’s hard to rate Little Barrie albums, since they are so close in sound and structure, but this might be their tightest, toughest, and most impressive work to date.

Description:

Since their first demo in 2013, the Austin expats in Institute have edged their raw anarcho punk blitz into something much more expansive and nuanced. 2014’s Salt EP marked the beginning of the band’s working relationship with Sacred Bones, and it explored longer, more experimental song forms. Catharsis, the band’s debut full-length, was another huge push forward, with a slightly cleaner production and some krautrock influence creeping in around the edges. Subordination sees them push themselves further out of genre, incorporating hard rock and glam and writing some of the most diverse material of their career.

Description:

For a guy with a luminous past, Glenn Morrow sounds firmly fixated on the future on this tune from his first album in 28 years. In the ’80s Morrow was at the epicenter of the Hoboken Indie scene that spawned the likes of The Feelies, The Bongos and Yo La Tengo. He fronted local linchpins The Individuals and had played in ”a,”the band that evolved into The Bongos and basically laid the grounwork for the whole Hoboken movement. He also started running the celebrated Bar/None Records and founded Rage To Live, whose 1989 album, ”Blame The Victims” marked his last appearance as a recording artist. Morrow hasn’t exactly been idol in the intervening decades; he’s kept Bar/None humming and released albums by They Might Be Giants, Yo La Tengo, The Feelies, Of Montreal and scads of others….. He may not have played in a band since the Reagan administration, but Morrow has never unplugged from the rock ‘n’ roll current crackling through his bloodstream, asnd his new material makes that apparent. He’s bringing as much energy and creativity to the table as ever, but adding the kind of gravitas only maturity can supply. Like the album as a whole, ”The Days To Come” answers the question, ”What’s the most convincing way to rock after making the journey from innocence to experience?” — –Npr, Jim Allen, June 9,2017

”I came early to see your band.” –Rolling Stone’s David Fricke

”He is an extraordinary craftsman; his intricately detailed arrangements and multipart song structures weave together borrowed riffs and references from a variety of pop and rock sources without ever sounding second-hand…But the inventiveness of the songwriting and arrangements isn’t allowed to get in the way of the music’s forceful impact. Mr. Morrow is able to find emotional resonances in such unlikely sources … his vocals are intense and deeply felt as well as musicianly. There s much to savor here … This is music that was made to last.” — –NY Times
