The Happy Hollows

Finally, I discover this fascinating band but it was well worth the wait.  The first time I saw them there was a strange but compelling noise to begin the song and I was interested so I peered closely at the band as the song began to unfold, that is then when I observed the singer, Sarah, pick-tapping on her Gibson SG. Needless to say was I was instantly enchanted.  As the song progressed, I heard the strong arrangement of the tune and Sarah's unique and beautiful voice and I knew then I had gone one step beyond love at first listen and entered worship territory.  Definitely worth checking out over and over again.

NIN - Hesitation Marks

Took me a long time to get to this album and I have to admit I was very hesistant and
even reluctant to hear it due to the last few NIN releases which by my standards I considered weak.  Still, I gave it a chance today based on some positive comments of friends, and I am happy to report this album is a indeed an impressive return to the upper echelons of  the musical stratosphere for Reznor's project.   The album features a very good balance of buzzing, droney synths those which I could describe as sort of a sonic companion to floating on delicious caramely syrup, this blissful syrupy feeling is punctuated and conjoined with these sort of absolutely scrumptious, glitchy clicks and beeps of the sort you would hear after just turning on a brand new technological toy right out of the box.
