    'Unsere  Feuer Brennen', which translates from the German as 'Our Fires Burning', is one  of the most interesting releases that has come my way in a long time. Strikingly  packaged in gold upon white and aided by both Jason Thompkins (Harvest Rain) and  Nick Nedzynski (Lady Morphia), the eleven tracks on this CD run to just over 50  minutes in length.

    The first of them, 'Nocturne', opens with the  words 'Welcome, sweet death', taken from J. Dowland's 'A Pilgrime's Solace' from  1612 and possibly even inspired by Johann Sebastian Bach's 'Komm Susser Tod'.  Regardless, it's most certainly infused with the same Classical spirit and even  a wry sense of optimism. To a slight extent these poetic utterances remind me ... Read more »

    This was the only full-length album released during the brief life-span of the Creation, one of the few beat groups to rival the raw intensity of the Who. (Guitarist Eddie Phillips, who committed violin bow to guitar strings before Jimmy Page, was allegedly even courted by Pete Townshend to become the Who's second guitarist.) This album, released in 1967 on Hit-Ton, a label out of Germany, where the group enjoyed immense popularity (a situation not mirrored back home in the UK), consists of the singles and some uninspired choices of covers ("Cool Jerk," "Like a Rolling Stone," "Hey Joe"). The group's criminally under-appreciated sound is fueled by Phillips' clanging, melodic power chords and feedback-drenched squalls, which show up most prominently in the Creation's signature single, "Making Time." Other highlights on this essential album for fans of Mod and British Invasion include "Try and Stop Me," "If I Stay Too Long," "Biff Bang Pow," and "Painter Man." A 1999 Repertoi ... Read more »

    Antietam - Music from Elba

    This easily gets a place in my top-15 records from the 80s, and I was surprised to find out that, although Antietam are still active, their early recordings have never been reissued, not even posted in the music-blogland.

    Antietam came from Louisville, KY, where Tara Key and Tim Harris were in Babylon Dance Band and Wolf Knapp in Your Food. In 1984 the three of themrelocated to New Jersey and formed Antietam with Mike Weinert on drums. Their first (self-titled) LP came out in 1985 on Homestead records, as well as Music Form Elba in 1986. Today they live in NYC. In some reviews they have been described as "Hoboken-sound" (i.e. like the Feelies or Yo La Tengo), but to my ears, their first two LPs always sounded equally east and west coast. There is something in Tara Key's guitar playing and voclas that leads me ... Read more »
