This album is really weird and I honestly can’t think of a way to describe the genre at all. The vocals are very epic and almost ‘chanting’ at times, and the instrumental segments go from droney guitar solos to enchanting indie pop riffs. Honestly, just listen to the Youtube link, and if you like it, download the album. I’m not doing the album any justice with my half-assed description.

If you’ve never heard of Harry, he’s essentially the Frank Sinatra of the 90’s and 00’s.  Honestly, he’s not that bad.  He writes alot of his own music, and can sing pretty well.  And this album is one of his more enjoyable.

How can you not love this album? I listen to this even when it isn’t Christmas, but this time of year it starts getting heavy playtime in my world. This never fails to cheer me up, because it’s such a charming little collection of carefree tunes. Get into it.

One of the most creative bands and albums to come out during the nineties. Taking a thumping drum and bass, quality samples, and nonsensical poetry, Soul Coughing mashes and smashes genres upon genres together including jazz, hip-hop, pop, blues, funk, etc to make a clever and just plain awesome album. Leader Mike Doughty blends his genius imagery and rhymes to the hard pounding beats of S.C. to deliver a fresh album that still holds up today.  Highly recommended for fans of originality and “genre blending”.

This album is like being in a French Cafe on poetry night.  It’s weird, but ultimately satisfying.  Most of the lyrics are in French, so if you’re big on lyrics (and don’t speak French), you probably won’t want to download it.  But this is a pretty good album from an upcoming French artist, so give it a download and if you like it, tell your friends.

Lately I’ve been listening to a lot of twee, folk-punk, and other lo-fi nonsense, however I’ve had a few random albums too. This is one of them. I’m sure everyone knows Armstrong because of the song “What A Wonderful World” but there’s so much more here to explore. This album is a mixture of jazzy pop songs, and they are all great. There’s a song here for everyone, so why not give it a listen?
