Retribution Gospel Choir covers The Beach Boys

Retribution Gospel Choir did an acoustic cover of Kokomo by The Beach Boys for The A.V. List’s Undercover.

Surprisingly, Alan taps a drum while Eric sings and strums what appears to be a Martin HD-28.

Lori Cunningham

ELECTRONICA/AMBIENT/POP

With a distinctly modern blend of classically-trained vocals and edgy ambient electronica, Lori Cunningham has found an outlet for musical expression online. After years of vocal training, Lori decided to begin writing and recording original music in 2006. She has recorded an album, Unseen, and has had a guest performance on Jennifer Thomas’s The Lullaby Album. In addition to her solo music, Lori is working on a side project, Emeria, with British musician Adam Amos. Lori has answered a few of our questions, and she has a few things to say about being a full-time mother and composer, and her passion for vocal performance and songwriting.

She is also having a promotional giveaway of her album until June, and there is still time to enter to possibly get a free CD. Continue reading “Lori Cunningham”

Last week I was waiting around on campus for my wife to pick me up, when I decided to step into a local CD shop, promising to myself that I wouldn’t spend any money we didn’t have. I’m sure you can all guess how that turned out. I walked out of the shop carrying a shiny new copy of Retribution Gospel Choir’s latest album, simply entitled 2.

I hadn’t heard any Retribution Gospel Choir, though I’m a big Low fan, and so the powerful, raw, and in-your-face tone came as a shock, really. I was pleasantly surprised. Continue reading “Retribution Gospel Choir – 2 review”

Staci Marie Carriere

COUNTRY/ALTERNATIVE

Her personal philosophy is: “There are no strangers, only potential best friends.” I found this philosophy put into action as I had the pleasure to interview Staci Marie Carriere, singer/songwriter from Kentucky. I not only found Staci’s fun-loving, outgoing, and optimistic personality shining through, I also found her music to shine as well! Her sound is unique and it can’t be put into one specific genre. People have labeled it everything from country to alternative. Her sound isn’t the only thing that is unique; Staci grew up in Eastern Kentucky where members of the church are few and far between. Titling herself the “Lone Ranger,” she not only talks about how growing up as a religious minority influenced her music, she also talks about life, being authentic, and her outlook for the future.

Cary Judd – Goodnight Human review

Cary Judd – Goodnight Human

Recommended if you like: philosophy, pop music, and art

Recommended tracks: “See Through Rocks,” “Andromeda,” and “Huang Shan (The Ah-ha Song)”

By the time I develop a true opinion of a song or album, it’s inevitably past the time when it’s relevant. Perhaps I’m just slow. I remember how incredibly depressed I was when I found out John Lennon was shot and killed. I was fourteen years old at the time, and the year was, in fact, 1998. So you, my dear reader, should consider yourself lucky that I’m getting around to reviewing Cary Judd’s Goodnight Human album, released late in 2009.

However, I still think the album is relevant. And for what it’s worth, it’s probably one of the best things to happen to me since I started Linescratchers. How’s that for an endorsement? Continue reading “Cary Judd – Goodnight Human review”

Rumbo Rumba is new on the Utah music scene, but they are now offering free song downloads on their awesomely-designed website.
