CD Review: New Music From Indie-Rock Acts Drift Wood Miracle And Cold Country

From Durham, NC comes the new indie-rock band Drift Wood Miracle with their latest release "The 21st." The band produces songs that come from the heart as songwriter Bryan Diver lays it all out on the line, displaying his true feelings in "Mountain." The band mixes tempos and volume to keep songs interesting as in "Do You Shiver?" and "To Endevour." The rawness of "Juggernaut" and the acoustic "Solum" give a feeling of being in the studio with the band, hearing these songs take shape live. Drift Wood Miracle save the best for last as they close the album with the eight-minute epic "Sister" which shows the full-potential of the band's musicianship and Diver's songwriting talents.

Chicago rocker Sean McConnell recently released his new EP entitled "Missing The Muse" under the band name Cold Country. This new album is McConnell's first with a full-band and has a great sound with all the power combination of instruments.
The EP kicks off with "What It Takes" as he combines a blazing electric guitar with a huge drumbeat and even throws in a toy piano. The title-song, "Missing The Muse" has a modern, alternative/acoustic rock vibe as his vocals lead the way on this shuffle-tempo. The addition of Anna Holmquist on vocals on "Carried Away With The Wind" gives more depth to the song's lyrics and balances well with McConnell's voice. The album finishes up with the big chorus rocker "Her Light."
Cold Country will be embarking on a mini-tour through the month of August mainly performing out west. For more information on the band and the new album "Missing The Muse," please visit www.facebook.com/pages/Cold-Country/389453301070362.
