10-in-10 CD reviews (8/26/2011)



Each Friday, in an effort to listen to everything that hits my desk, I review 10 recently released CDs in 10 words each:

Alyssa Graham The Lock, Stock & Soul EP — Four-song album full of folk-pop precedes third album.

Alexis Marceaux Orange Moon — New Orleans musician’s soothing vocal style has refreshing musical accompaniment.

Trevor Hall Everything Everytime Everywhere — Ben Harper and Bob Marley influence apparent on sophomore album.

Sunny Sweeney Concrete — Yet another pop-country singer who sounds like the rest.

Tom Hambridge Boom! — Singer/producer releases traditional blues album, sounds like George Thorogood.

Brian Molnar & The Naked Hearts Of the Fall — Strong infusion of country in this mediocre Americana/folk album.

Barbra Streisand What Matters Most — Babs sings the exclusive lyrics of Alan and Marilyn Bergman.

JK and the Lost Boys Time is Trouble — Sister Hazel guitarist offers seven songs with his solo venture. (At the Evening Muse on Sept. 2.)

Luke Bryan Tailgates & Tanlines — Getting to point where I can’t tell country artists apart.

Heartsounds Drifter — Band’s semi-post-hardcore music gets punk vocal style overlay.
