Another new album from Tod Warner Moore, I reviewed his “Spark” album last year and loved it, so I was surprised to get another release from him so soon.

With her beautiful, angelic voice, like a gift from the ancients and her spiraling, soaring sounds GEA creates an almost circus like atmosphere full of layered vocals and gorgeous beats where one has the feeling that absolutely anything could happen.

Classic American rock, an homage to the great bands of the 70s and 80s, musical masters like Steely Dan, Leonard Cohen and Led Zeppelin.  The Seattle-based Sundogs are making the music that they love.

This is a really interesting EP from an emerging artist with quite a few previous mixtape releases to his name, all very well received.

From the very first track on the album, “Revolution,” it is clear that this is not your average jazz fusion record.

“Don’t Break What You Cannot Fix” feels like a love song, or at least a conversation between two lovers, but it’s a little more complex than that.

There’s something very ‘punk’ these days about music that sounds like the musicians are actually playing the instruments and the singers are inhaling before they exhale…if you know what I mean.  I happen to prefer my music more human than automated. DG Adams' album “Nest of Vipers” is thankfully free from the confines of electronica and autotune.  It is full of the divine flaws of live recordings, the sentimental passions of a love for jamming, and the turn of a thoughtful phrase.

It’s no surprise to me that Adams is an actor and a Shakespearean one at that.  The themes are dramatic; death, love, war, despair.  The vocals are layered and harmonized, poignant and cinematic.  The whole album feels like a performance piece in fact.  More rock musical than rock concert.  It even has a little comic relief with the track “Platonic Lovers,” neatly placed at the end of the second act.

The production is warm and welcoming, the musicians excellent and the songs playfully diverse, folky, Spanish, rock, soul and even a little Elizabethan.  Its honesty reminds me a little of Pink Floyd or David Bowie or Joni Mitchell…that same kind of wistful mournfulness.  These songs are straight from the heart, really compelling and gorgeously theatrical….loved it!!!

What a little gem…slightly odd and sweetly original. Patrick Ames’s EP “All I Do is Bleed” is a magical glimpse inside a warm, thoughtful and strangely familiar mind.
