Wax Tailor could arguably be one of the best and most under rated DJ’s around. This complex and genius concept album demands your attention as it winds you up and draws you into its bad ass breaks and grooves. Sit down in a dark room and listen to this one by yourself!
Don’t let the name of the band fool you – this is a sweet album! Full of surprises with sounds reminiscent of Joy Division and The Avett Brothers. Put this CD on and listen to great music – from end to end.
Rock & Roll album of the year? The Heavy lay down a driving intensity in this CD - with multiple layers of rock and roll. Undercurrent vibes from Jack White, Led Zeppelin, The Black Keys and others as the album explodes with creativity. It’s funky, punky, jazzy, and makes me wanna ROCK & ROLL!
Do you like Led Zeppelin? If so, you will love this live recording. Just remember, this is LZ, so turn it up! "Celebration Day" is a tribute to Ahmet Ertegun, one of the movers and shakers of the music world for over half a century, and this recording is likely the last time LZ will play. Who knows?

<font color="red"><strong>Various Artists/YogaBeat/Black Swan,/strong></color><font color="black"><br>13 tracks of "Conscious Hip Hop & Organic Electronica from Black Swan" covering a whole lot of territory.
