Even though Eric Hutchinson released “Sounds Like This” back in 2008, I thought it necessary to review the album that brought Eric Hutchinson to major recognition before he takes the stage at Veishea this year.
The Lumineers’ self titled debut album is one of the best of the year. Their true passion for folk and desire for music shine brightly through this first album.
The Shins are back with their fourth studio album, “Port of Morrow”. It has been 5 years that fans have waited to hear from The Shins again.
The musically talented Chicago native has released a masterpiece. Andrew Bird’s dreamy folk-rock album is full of many different instruments, giving his latest album a very whimsical feel.
For fans of soft musical collaborations such as Bon Iver and S. Carey, you are sure to be a fan of We Are The Willows.
If you’re a fan of The Fray’s past work, you will be very pleased with “Scars & Stories”. The alternative rock mixed with piano ballads are all present within this album, but knowing the band traveled the world for inspiration makes the lyrics that much more inspirational and enjoyable.
“Human Again” shows another side of Ingrid by providing listeners with more instrumentals and “louder” tracks instead of her typical quiet and lighter tracks.
“Voyageur” is a bit of a somber album that reflects Edwards’ recent divorce.
“Peace of Mind” is a great Reggae album to own. Even though Reggae is more appropriate for the summer, it’s still a great way to relax and put listeners in a great mood.
Overall, “Red” is a fun album that many will enjoy. If you’re looking for more Dia Frampton, be sure to check her out at the local M-Shop on Sunday, January 15 at 8 p.m.
