Lots of albums dropping just in time to make the year end lists, and here’s my favorites that came our way this week. I mean, we’ve already raved and raved about Ribbon Stage, which actually came out last week, but I was late on that game. Plus, I Was a King and the Smashing Times both have new records out that should be on their way to my house. No need for much to do, but here’s our faves.
Sometimes when we music snobs tend to overcomplicate things, it’s refreshing to find a dude like Richmond, VA based James Goodson who can keep things simple and deliver short, catchy, rock tunes. Goodson records under the moniker Dazy and delivers garage rock tunes with direct focus and energy while packing a hell of a lot into his 2 minutes or less tunes. His new song, “On My Way” is a prime example of his songwriting style with a super rocking number that might be over by the time you finish this sentence. I’m here for it.
Dazy will release a new album entitled OUTOFBODY on October 28th via Lame-O Records.
