Juliana Hatfield shines on and on

Juliana Hatfield – “Shining On”

When I think of Juliana Hatfield, I think of that Replacements song, Sadly Beautiful. She’s a brave and lovely soul, and this is a real grown up record from the former Blake Baby. Redemptive and powerful work from this tireless lyricist, sometime rock star, and club touring veteran.

School of Seven Bells falls blissfully Half Asleep

School of Seven Bells – “Half Asleep”

Beautiful, dreamy euro-pop in the tradition of Siouxsie and the Banshees, Cocteau Twins or Voice of the Beehive. This song has a certain gravity, stronger than you hear in the first pass; Its appeal comes inevitably in time, like sleep.
