It’s been a bit since I’ve posted under the new releases column, here’s what has come in lately:
Chad VanGaalen – Skelliconnection
I still can’t decide on this guy, I didn’t really like the first record, which other people loved, and I am not so impressed with my first listen to this new one either. Once again, other people are raving about it. I guess I will reserve final judgement until a later date, but ah you know, I rarely update these blurbs.
Joanna Newsom – Ys
A challenge for fans, but surely better on record, than on solo harp. Maybe with a full band, the live experience would go down a little easier.
Bob Wiseman – Theme and Variations
A fine Canadian artist.
Leeroy Stagger – Depression River
The latest release from the folks at Boompa Records.
Bob Dylan – Modern Times
Another fine record from Mr. Zimmerman.
Sarah McLachlan – Wintersong
Yet another tossed off compilation of B-sides and covers from the Canada’s once favourite chanteuse.
