CD Review: New Music From Canadian Artists The Velveteins And Kurt Swinghammer

From Edmonton, Canada comes the debut studio album, "Slow Wave" from alternative rockers The Velveteins. Their new nine-song release begins with the short acoustic intro of "First Wave," before the guitars come out buzzing for the up-tempo, indie-rock feel of "Strange Side Of The Street." They continue with the alt-pop melody of "Spanish Wine," then float on by with the dreamy, atmospheric soundscape of "Midnight Surf." They finish their latest release with the acoustic, addictive pop of "Don't Yah Feel Better?" and the slow, cosmic tones of "Slow Wave." The Velveteins have a handful of live shows in May.

Canadian singer/songwriter Kurt Swinghammer will be releasing his latest album "Another, Another" on May 12th. It will be Swinghammer's 13th studio effort and it features a dozen tracks that continue the evolution of his music. Beginning with "Dear Old Soul," the steady beat allows you to concentrate on his poetic lyrics, while "Another Another Green World" keeps you focused on the layers of music used to create the song's unique background. The experiments continue with the sounds of "She Needed More Loops," before the folk-pop appeal of "Jack Layton And Grace Appleton" and the gentle flow of "Another." His new album closes with the peaceful instrumental "Waltz For Wilf" and the electronic gadgetry of "The Random House."
