Its getting close to year’s end, so we thought we would recap some of our favorite releases in 2016. Somewhere in here could be our album of the year….

 

Young Benjamins-“Losing Our Shadows”

 

The Everywheres“Dignity Fever”

 

Sidewatcher“Otra Vez”

 

The Auras-“Saturn Day”

 

The Tracks

 

Propeller“Fall Off The World”

 

The Corsets“Monta Sanica”

 

Fruition“Labor Of Love”

 

The Counterfactuals

 

Hazen Sage“Thrive”

 

Keith Morris & The Crooked Numbers“The Dirty Gospel”

 

The Minnows

While there is no album, yet, and no date set for release, we are hoping this band from Belfast can get something released in 2016. After listening to several of the tracks slated to appear on a new album, we know it will Irish rock.

 

 

FRUITION-Labor Of Love

fruitionFruition, based in Portland, Oregon, released their latest album, Labor Of Love, in April, 2016. Filled with addictive melodies, insanely good 3 part harmonies, and catchy hooks, the songs are wonderfully inspiring, with infectious musical references to Reggae, and Louisiana Swamp Music.  I heard mandolin, 12 string acoustic guitar, dobro, banjo, violin, cello, and some way cool organ. The varied instrumentation is exciting, and allows for some wonderfully creative arrangements. 10 tracks of roots-soul music at its best. Favorite tracks: ‘Labor Of Love‘, ‘Early Morning Wake Up‘, and ‘Death Comes Knocking‘.

You can check it out for yourself on their bandcamp page, and then buy a few copies. Share it with friends & family. Definitely one to consider for I Can’t Believe My Earz Indie Album Of The Year, 2016.
