Benjamin Lazar Davis - Nothing Matters

Benjamin Lazar Davis
Nothing Matters
Label: 11A Records

Careful tales prevail in quiet joys and timid misgivings while sensuous serenity bends around pensive acoustic guitars, idyllic bedroom-pop drum-machines and textured electronics, dressing the refreshing, “Nothing,” in adult-sized lullabies peppered with perceptive conjecture. Submitting love-song comedies dipped in articulate wishes, the multi-talented Davis examines candid humanity through playful maypole melodies glazed in infectious recollections, court-jester gestures and mid-tempo mindfulness.

David Nance Group - Peaced and Slightly Pulverized

David Nance Group - Peaced and Slightly Pulverized

David Nance Group
Peaced and Slightly Pulverized
Label: Trouble in Mind

Fiery quagmires blazed in steel-gauged lacework, “Peaced,” seethes, bleeds and seizes in splintered full-moon rock unlocking stark urban cool and ghoulish cosmic blues.  Ignited in slow-roasted guitar-amp anarchy, unvarnished beauty bubbles and bends in David Nance Group’s competent hands conjuring prowling maelstroms strewn in blistering double-fisted resistance; coarse boisterous voices shaped by hip, slippery riffs lashed to adamant six-string savagery.

Darwin's Finches - Good Morning Creatures II

Darwin's Finches - Good Morning Creatures II

Darwin's Finches
Good Morning Creatures II
Label: Artificial Head Records & Tapes

Brain-pan landslides collide inside, “Good Morning Creatures II,” erupting from powerful sour-mash howls, stormy psycho-blues breakdowns and lurching cow-punk subversion. Grizzled gonzo gauchos, Darwin’s Finches greets specious reality with electric menace and suspicious visions flying off the handle directly into the fire, collaborating with fellow Texan Jandek in a detour-riddled tour de force scorched in psychedelic barbecue from college-town cantinas.

Stella Donnelly - Beware of the Dogs

Stella Donnelly - Beware of the Dogs

Stella Donnelly
Beware of the Dogs
Label: Secretly Canadian

Modern folk-punk chronicler and attentive connector, Donnelly’s tidy just deserts and sturdy straight-talk cockiness mix dry-wit feminism alongside pop-tart earth-angel bliss for saucy possibilities served over cheeky, breezy themes. Half coy, half boisterous, grounded in tight, understated arrangements, “Beware,” out-stares clever revelations with playfully upfront charms; criss-crossing gender politics through bright bouncy tunes while grooming jump-rope grooves espousing revolutionary truths.

Dressy Bessy - Fast Faster Disaster

Dressy Bessy - Fast Faster Disaster

Dressy Bessy
Fast Faster Disaster
Label: Yep Roc

Armed to the teeth with svelte belters, double-shot taunts and slash-and-burn purrs, Dressy Bessy’s arresting endeavors spawn con-artist angels avenging club-house outcasts stripping pompous romps down to skin-tight skirmishes. Rabid doo-wop ballads trapping jagged scat-rap chit-chat, “Disaster,” matches fussy shrugs and feigned disdain to sweet-tart alt-rock cabaret, lusty tussles primed for devilish rebellions schooled in institutional foolishness and risk-free teases.
