2014 | Kyle’s Record Recommends Day 1

It’s the end of the year and it’s time to wrap up everything we loved, and this year I’d like to make this a buyers recommendation for records this year. At this point in my life, these are all records I think you should drop $20 on and spin the vinyl like there is no tomorrow. I didn’t think it was proper to put these in any type of order although most people who I discuss music with will probably know what my number one is. Without further ado, here are my recommendations for records to buy that released in…


2013 | Kyle’s Top Records 15 – 11

15. The Lone Bellow – Self Titled [youtube][/youtube] [A]s much as I gripe about The Lone Bellow’s self-titled debut, for me when I hear it, I can’t help but think it’s formulaic, an undeniable focus group created music for maximum broad appeal, and then I press play, and the urge to not like the music that comes pouring out of this Brooklyn trio melts, and I realize just how undeniably great the record is.

luke winslow-king

[J]ust a few months after being signed to Bloodshot Records, New Orleans musician Luke Winslow-King just announced his new record, The Coming Tide, to be released April 23rd. The first single from the jazz / blues artist is a strolling tune that sounds as if it’s being played on the front porch of a rickety home in humid New Orleans. The slide guitar, the slow pace, and King’s soulful vocals ring true as this song delights for a short few minutes, but I’m sure you’ll be grabbing for the repeat button anyways.
