Snow Shine – February 21, 2024

| Radio

New music is back now that Valentines Day is out of the way.  Who knew such an antiquated holiday could prove to be such a distraction from the important task of releasing tunes….

Favorite records this week:

The Cyrkle‘s Revival: Indeed, an album of brand new material from the mid 60s pop band that gave us the single “Red Rubber Ball” (a Paul Simon cover).  Wow, such harmonies.  We especially liked “Singing For Tomorrow” and “We Can Find It,” with echoes of Todd Rundgren and Steely Dan enhancing the blissful ultrapop of a forgotten era.

The RevenantsA Slight Disturbance of the Mind: Where The Cyrkle are light, The Revenants are the opposite — heavy, with churning guitars, major bass and drums, and song writing out of the late Beatles drug period. I found myself thinking — these guys must be great in some grungy Boston club like Bunratty’s or the Rat…  And I’ll bet they are too.

While we’re doing heavy, the gothy shoegaze of Lesser Angels on “Burn It Away” gave us a turn as well.

Winter continues but we have our tunes to keep us warm…
