You know, when we finally got around to working on these smaller review shells, it was with the intention of getting ’em out ad hoc, whenever the mood strikes and they were ready.

And after getting some of the lighter sounds out of the way, as ever, now we head into darker and often more interesting territory.

Indies, Doom, Sludge, Stoner and more

And here’s another one this week.  Can’t promise the rest will follow with this sort of speed or regularity, and it’s probably about time to restart the research and recordings again over on the Weird Scenes front…but here you go, 3 smaller scale Roundups inside of two weeks.  Don’t say I never gave ya anything!

Another Delicately Delicious “Dad Rock” Roundup (week 2)

Well, who’d’a thunk it…two weeks worth of what used to be the opening salvo in those increasingly enormous monthly reviews Third Eye was known for.  Like we’ve been been saying a lot lately…a lot of work to cover all this stuff, and breaking it all down into more digestible regular chunks like this is only making that point more apparent and noticeably valid.

A Devastating “Dad Rock” Roundup (week 1)

…or so I hear some of our younger readers smirking.  I don’t know, does power metal and gothic metal (with industrial leanings) count towards the AOR/”classic rock”/vintage “hair metal” thing generally referred to by that somewhat dismissive (but not entirely inaccurate) terminology?

And another crazy month has passed.  With all the loose ends caught up on, we’ve made a concerted effort to get everything up to date, and essentially succeeded…if you don’t count the deluge of incoming materials by the day (generally with release dates for next month’s coverage, but not always…) and how long it takes to cover so much material every month.

May I talk you into June? Another munificent mid month Roundup

Well, believe it or not, we’re still playing catchup with a number of labels and releases, all these months on…there’s just too much stuff coming in for one man to handle, much less one with an active podcast to research, record and run, other interests and a life to lead.  The good news?  We’re getting closer and closer every time.

This one was intended as the monthly Roundup cycle, but after getting through a few of the majors and usuals, there was a concerted effort to put a few patiently waiting sources’ materials to rest.  And with any artist, there’s a point where you know that’s enough – you’ve worked this material out sufficiently to put a pin in it.

So yeah, a few labels won’t see their most current and/or soon upcoming materials represented herein.  Next time around, no worries.

A few other folks, you’re welcome, and apologies for all the backlog the dawning of 2019 managed to cause…

Avaunt!

Ah, at last the icy hand of Winter begins to loose its grim grip!  Spring has sprung and you almost feel like departing the cavern, squinting at an unfamiliar light…
