Country Review: Patty Mattson-Throwdown

Release Date: November 10, 2014
Label: Indie

Patty Mattson has released a new album called Throwdown. The recording features seven strong tracks and the voice of a talented woman with the strength and conviction to deliver the words.

Even though this recording clocks in at just over 23 minutes Ms. Mattson packs it all into one powerful package with her vocal style and straight forward approach. It’s non-stop entertainment from start to finish.

The musicianship is fine throughout the run of this CD and a suitable match for Patty. All thanks go to Simone Sello for a masterful job multitasking and playing all the instruments (with the exception of drums on two tracks courtesy of Billy Pace). I did cover her last full length The Road and was quite impressed so it looks like she picked up right where she left off!

When I heard “Dear Momma” and “Daddy” it made me get all emotional and I suppose that is just what it is supposed to do so a job well done Patty. With all the sentiment aside, the opener and title track “Throwdown” is real kick up your heels and holler off the rooftop number. It’s full of energy and it rocks down the house. Now that is the way you are supposed to open an album. Along those same lines you should close out an album strong as well, so it keeps your listeners coming back for more, well, she does it again with perhaps the strongest cut on the album “I Can Feel It Comin’.”

This album feels like an EP but the range for that format is 3-5 songs. I think the difference here besides two more tracks are that it’s so darn good, you feel like it ends much too soon. That is a good thing for Patty Mattson. Why this lady is not a star right up there with folks like Carrie Underwood and the like, is beyond me. She has what it takes, and delivers the goods time and time again.

4/5 Stars

British Post-Punk Veterans 1919 Return With A Brand New Masterpiece Of Darkly Melodic Goth Rock, FUTURECIDE!

Los Angeles, CA - Like the mythic phoenix rising from the ashes, British post-punk band 1919 have gone through Hell and back over the course of their harrowing career, but they keep returning stronger than ever! Founded in 1980, the band released its debut album Machine in 1983 and one EP a year later before calling it quits. However, the band reformed in 2014 to great acclaim, performing numerous tours and at festivals across Europe. Then, tragedy struck as the band’s founding guitarist Mark Tighe was diagnosed with cancer in 2016 and succumbed to the disease in January 2017. Tighe insisted that the band should carry on without him, which they have done in finest form with their newest effort Futurecide. The album, which will be officially released on April 12 via Cleopatra Records, features brand new compositions and includes special guest performances by Tighe as well as former member Steve Madden, who also passed away this year. The first single, “Anxiety,” was released at the en…

Concert Review: Ghost At The Palace Theater Albany NY

Ghost At The Palace Theater Albany NY December 13, 2018

With winter upon us in the great Northeast, it was just another night. We never have a reason to stay in because of the weather, we just go. It so happened that it was a nice evening for a drive to a Ghost concert.We secured our tickets months ago and have been anticipating this night for months on end.
Last July I attended a “bucket list” concert, the great Iron Maiden was coming to Mansfield, MA. Opening for them was Ghost. This was a turn of a friendly card for the band, a great way to get worldwide exposure otherwise not afforded by a lesser band. They were already on the rise and the lead singer Papa Emeritus had a helluva a band (no pun intended there). At that time my prediction was that when the new year began Ghost would be headlining their own shows. So, then it happened, here we are tonight watching this incredible metal band headlining their own show, with no opener may I add.
For those of you unf…

Experience Hendrix Tour 2019 Concert Review

The Experience Hendrix Tour 2019 Concert The Palace Theater Albany, New York April 3, 2019

The pictures I have provided were snapped by me with my phone to give you an idea of the backdrop to the music prior to the show. That screen changed with each song and it was very trippy psychedelic colors and images that mirrored the timeframe of Jimi in his prime. -Keith “MuzikMan” Hannaleck
The Electric Church arrived in Albany, NY last night with its all-star cast for the Experience Hendrix 2019 Tour.The music of Jimi Hendrix continues to thrive and be embraced by fans worldwide. This is a tour I have been wanting to catch for several years now and I finally made it, and so glad I did.
The best thing that could happen to this event is the involvement of Billy Cox. Anyone familiar with Jimi’s music knows that they were friends for a long time and Billy played bass on some of Jimi’s albums. Also, with Janie Hendrix involved it makes everything legit. Also havin…
