Soul Junk - 1961

Soul-Junk has a new full length album, "1961", available for digital download. Their immense discography started out with rock, went into bizarro hip hop for a few albums, before returning to their rock band-based roots. No matter the genre or approach, one thing remains constant and that is their praise of Jesus Christ, Son of God. I have always considered the religious part of their music to just be one more unique characteristic about the band, and have never let it distract me from the music itself, which is truly original. Known for frequently rotating members of the band, this album has Glen Galaxy backed by members of his actual family, now including his twelve year old son Jude on drums and five year old singer/percussionist daughter Mila. The entire album is streaming and available for purchase at their bandcamp page.

Six Star General - Splinter

Six Star General - Splinter

(From Providence Phoenix March 2012): Their eighth studio effort, Splinter, finds guitarist Kyle Jackson, drummer Dan Ulmschneider, and bassist/vocalist Mark MacDougall peaking hard through concise and potent bursts of stoner sludge. Alt-rock fossils still hooked on vintage Dinosaur Jr., Silkworm, and Archers of Loaf should dig deep into their back catalog. Splinter was recorded in five sessions over two months, a marathon by SSG standards. Credit producer and local veteran musician Kraig Jordan (also of the Masons), who's Plan of a Boy studio has become the go-to recording spot for SSG. Layers of Kyle Jackson's guitar work resonate across Splinter on cuts "Curved Nerves" and "Triple EEE", and if you listen closely, you'll hear Jordan yelling through a bullhorn with swirling echoes. 75orLess brethren Mark Cutler, Bill Keough (Galvanize), and Joe Traynor (Vertical Twin) conjure a garage rock choir on a few tracks, including the opener "Ungroovy Feeling," and the band reworked two cuts from the previous EP. Nine tracks in all, you can download the track Curved Nerves, and buy a copy of the cd at the label webpage.
