CD Review: New Music From Neon Moon, Sweetwater String Band, Bend Sinister And Tony Geoffredi

The Americana/country duo Neon Moon recently released their latest album "6:53" this past summer. The new 6-song EP is a songwriter's dream as these well-constructed musical pieces are filled with emotion. They begin with the gentle swing of "If I Knew" and the darker tones of "Smoke" as you easily get wrapped up in singer Noelle's vocals. They deliver the nostalgic country twang of "Homewreker," before wrapping up their new album with the storied lyrics of the moody "Something In The Water" and the sweet, acoustic folk strumming of "If We're Being Honest."

From the Sierra Mountains of California comes the third album titled "At Night" featuring the Americana/folk sounds of Sweetwater String Band. This four piece band make the most of their string instruments as they deliver a great collection of folk gems. Their new 11-song release begins with the up-tempo strumming of "Same Stars" and they keep the pace going with the steady rhythm of "Beautiful." They deliver a more bluegrass sound with "My Proud Mountains" and "Red Hill Country" as the Sweetwater String Band look to get you up on your feet with these quick-moving songs. They finish up their new album with the slow, mosey sound of "The Night Has Come" and the simple remembrance of "Wild River."

Canadian rock band Bend Sinister recently released their latest album titled "The Other Way." It features 6-tracks to get you re-antiquated with this band as their music becomes very addictive as in the opening track "Move A Little Slower." They keep the tempo high with the sing-along chorus of their new single "Walk The Other Way" and kick things into high gear with the intense delivery of "Run." Their new short release closes with the seventies pop/rock sound of "Rock N Roll" and the piano ballad "Gonna Be Alright."

The new 5-song EP begins with the country acoustics of "What Can I Say" as his vocals are a strong presence throughout this new release. The album continues with the ballad "Broken Glass" as you get emotional from the song's lyrics. He closes his new short release with the beautiful country tones of "An Ocean Away" and "Sleeping Away" as his voice is a hidden gem among the independent music community.
