What’s that saying: “April showers bring May flowers”? Here at Indie-Music, we are overwhelmed with the amazing music raining down on us this April. This month’s reviews feature indie rock’s secret weapon Jason Narducy’s Split Single solo project, Seattle’s Kris Orlowski making us a ‘believer,’ the clever hooks and lyrics of Side Saddle, a long-awaited debut from the UK’s Matthew & the Atlas, and the majestic rock of Canada’s YUCA.
April’s artist reviews feature Split Single’s “Fragmented World” (rock), Kris Orlowski’s “Believer” (folk/pop), Side Saddle’s “The Postcard” (acoustic folk), Matthew & the Atlas’ “Other Rivers” (soulful folk pop), YUCA’s “Rebuilding the Fallen Empire” (rock), Roses & Revolutions’ “Roses & Revolutions” (folk pop), Norine Braun’s “Conventus The Eye of the Heart” (bluesy folk), Marquis of Vaudeville’s “The Great Promenade of Fools & Ghosts” (steampunk cabaret), The Moonshine’s “And Now…” (country/folk), and Wall-Eyed’s “Grace Under Fire” (garage rock).
