Daniel Romano, When It Comes To You & Show # 571

Daniel Romano - If I've Only One Time Askin'

Daniel Romano’s latest release If I’ve One Time Askin’ is the follow-up to 2013’s Come Cry With Me. Sung in his own deep voice, Romano brings us eleven songs telling tales in a way only he can. Authentic is a word that can be used to describe Romano’s sound.  His country influences are apparent, but the sounds of Americana also seep into Romano’s song's on If I’ve Only One Time Askin’. Horn sections appear on some tracks and there is also an indie rock element found here as well. Romano is commonly referred to for his retro country twang in reviews, but this album references different influences by asking the right kind of questions without expecting any answers.

Dead Ghosts - Self-titled

Vancouver’s Dead Ghosts first released their self-titled album back in 2010. The album brought us thirteen songs of garage rock in addition to adding elements of country into the bands dirty sound. Recently re-issued by Burger Records, the album’s cover drawn by Cassie Ramone (of Vivian Girls) depicts a variety of symbols and a desert-looking landscape. The primitive imagery perfectly exemplifies the primitive lo-fi garage stylings of the band’s sound. Throughout the album’s thirteen tracks, Dead Ghosts take us through a gritty landscape of primitive proportions complete with subtle turns and strong hooks.
