FADES - FADES
Review by Gary Hill
Overall, I like this act a lot. They have a great melodic vocal concept with some hard rocking sounds.

FADES - Breaking through the Walls (digital single)
Review by Gary Hill
I reviewed the upcoming EP from this act in the last issue.

More
The Fall - Re-Mit
Review by Gary Hill
I like The Fall. At least, I’ve liked everything I’ve heard from them.

More
Famous Underground - Famous Underground
Review by Gary Hill
I could see putting this one under the heavy metal banner.

More
Fankhauser Cassidy Band - On the Blue Road
Review by Gary Hill
This band should be great just based on the fact that it features surf guitar legend Merrell Fankhauser and Ed Cassidy of Spirit fame.

More
Merrell Fankhauser - Tiki Lounge Live
Review by Gary Hill

Merrell Fankhauser is known for his surf and Hawaiian guitar sounds. He's also known for his television show "Tiki Lounge."


More
Farah - Neoteric
Review by Gary Hill
Music wise this lands in the modern electronic territory.

More
Feed the Kitty - Westbound & Down
Review by Gary Hill
This set is a bit hard to pin down.

More
Don Felder - Road to Forever: Extended Edition
Review by Gary Hill
This new reissue of Don Felder’s latest release has four extra songs.

More
Ferentz and the Felons - Hudson County EP
Review by Gary Hill

If you like mainstream rock music, you will want to check this new EP out. There are only two songs, but both are very strong.


More
Fernando - The Dogs / Donna the Pride of Topeka (vinyl single)
Review by Gary Hill
I’ve never really heard of this artist before, but based on the strength of this release, I’m definitely interested in hearing more.

More
Katie Ferrara - Dream Catcher
Review by Gary Hill
This is a cool set of music. I suppose the most obvious comparison would be to Jewel, but Katie Ferrara has her own sound. 

More
Ferris and the Wheels - Hollow
Review by Gary Hill
Classic rock blends with punk and even more modern sounds on this EP.

More
Ferris and the Wheels - Ferris and the Wheels
Review by Gary Hill
This act is a classy one. I previously reviewed one of their releases.

More
Few Miles South - Might Could
Review by Gary Hill

This outfit was formed by Blake English (guitars, drums, bass, banjo, mandolin, vocals) and singer Tori Lund.


More
Field Report - Summertime Songs
Review by Larry Toering
Field Report return with another great release (this time on the Verve Forecast label) and with a disc that is chock full mellow of indie-folk rock gems that go the distance to create an absolute jovial easy listening masterpiece.
More
Simon Field - Gravity (ft Easton Davis) (digital single)
Review by Gary Hill
This has four versions (the original and three remix/edits) of one song.

More
Bonne Finken - Fairytales / Loveaffairs
Review by Gary Hill
Bonne Finken’s music is hard to categorize.

More
Fire and the Romance - Way Down Below (digital single)
Review by Gary Hill
This is a new digital single from Fire and the Romance and the style of music here is both modern and retro.

More
Fire in the Field - War Bonnet
Review by Gary Hill

To describe this set with one phrase, the riff is king. These guys have produced a sound that is very nearly heavy metal, but probably lands more in the hard rock zone.


More
Annie Fitzgerald - You & Me & the Sun
Review by Gary Hill

This quite an intriguing album. In some ways it's not far removed from the mainstream pop rock created by a lot of similar artists.


More
David Fitzpatrick - Parachutes in Hurricanes
Review by Gary Hill

If you are a fan of singer songwriter, Americana based music, you should really give this album a try.


More
C.K. Flach - Empty Mansions
Review by Gary Hill
This is an intriguing set. It's rather effective and has some songs that are particularly strong. It's not without its problems, though.

More
Flamin' Groovies - Live 1971 San Francisco
Review by Gary Hill
This is definitely an artifact of historical importance. It was one of the last shows ever performed at the Fillmore West as it was winding toward closure.

More
The Flashpot Moments - The Flashpot Moments
Review by Gary Hill
This set is quite strong. These guys land in the territory of alternative rock, but there is a lot of pop here.

More
Flaunt - The Antics of More Youthful Times
Review by Gary Hill
I like this set quite a bit. It has a modern soulful feeling to just about everything.

More
Flow - Flow
Review by Mark Johnson

Flow is a new age music super-group, featuring the combined talents of superstar producer and director, Will Ackerman (guitar), Fiona Joy Hawkins (piano and vocals), Lawrence Blatt (acoustic and electric guitar and ukulele) and Jeff Oster (trumpet and flugelhorn).


More
John Flynn - Mercy
Review by Gary Hill
There was a time in the 1960s when folk music really ruled much of the musical world.
More
Foghat - Under the Influence
Review by Gary Hill
Beyond everything else, Foghat were always one of the wave of bands that landed somewhere in the blues rock arena.

More
JJ Ford - Perfect Saturday Night
Review by Gary Hill
I wouldn’t say that Ford’s voice sounds like Arlo Guthrie’s.

More
Arthur Fowler - Here I Am Again
Review by Gary Hill

The mix of retro stylings with jazz and other sounds here is quite cool. This short set is diverse and effective.


More
Fox Medicine - Greetings from Mars
Review by Gary Hill

I need to get one thing out there right at the start. This release is clearly not for everyone.


More
Aretha Franklin - Divas Live: The One and Only Aretha Franklin
Review by Gary Hill

Aretha Franklin is a legend. There is no debate about that. This new CD/DVD combo showcases a pretty amazing concert. =


More
Carl Franklin - Been a While
Review by Gary Hill
Had I heard this disc in 2013 (the year it was released) it might very well have made my “best of the year” list.

More
Free Willy - Remember the Alamo
Review by Gary Hill

If you are a big fan of down-home old school country music, particularly of the bluegrass variety, you will find plenty to like here.


More
Freedom - Freedom at Last (Vinyl)
Review by Gary Hill
This vinyl release has a great old time rock vibe.

More
Grace Freeman - Shadow
Review by Gary Hill
This is an impressive release, particularly when you consider that Grace Freeman is just 19 years old. She has a very pleasant voice, and is a solid songwriter.

More
Eric Frisch - Goodbye Birdcage
Review by Gary Hill
Catchy, timeless pop music – that would be the best description of this.

More
Frou Frou - Details
Review by Bruce Stringer
Frou Frou means the sound that makes men go wild and the first thing that struck me about this CD - beside the succulent, breathy vocals of Imogen Heap, was the texture of the production: something I hadn't experienced since the Cocteau Twins.

More
The fundaMentals - MonuMental: The Best of The fundaMentals
Review by Gary Hill
This set is definitely not for everyone. It has a real DIY indie-sound to it.

More
Furious Jones - Bread and Circuses
Review by Gary Hill
This is quite an unusual set.

More
The Furious Seasons - Look West
Review by Gary Hill
This set is really a throw back to the music of the 1960s or early 1970s in some ways.


More
Chris Fury - From Darkness
Review by Gary Hill
Here we have an instrumental album focusing on guitar hero like playing.
