Song Reviews of the Week

War? by System of a Down  This song sounds so good from a mixing and balance perspective. Even the croaks are well placed. It’s angry and raging power work. A short shot of whiskey. I am ready to enter the mosh pit .

Remembrance Day” by B-Movie A new wave treat. This sounds very familiar. Prob been introduced to this song before through a friends mix tape or other.That synth motif and the the vocal energy change at back half of each verse are standouts for me .  Funny, I almost hear Midnight Oil, a stretch but perhaps it’s the vocal timbre.  Love it. 

Hoist That Rag” by Tom Waits Tom Waits, another MyFive favorite . Enter the musical art house, always an adventure. The percussive  gun crack rhythms against the arpeggiated guitars captivate, the instrumental riffing section and the Hoist that rag” chorus are great .  The Waits signature style bring it all home. Super.
