So, the Band of Holy Joy have released their ‘tricky’ 19th album under the delightful, yet sarcastic, title ‘Land of Holy Joy’.  And what an achievement, most probably their best to date and after the 2012 release of ‘How to Kill a Butterfly’ I didn’t think I’d

CASH REGISTERS - 'Context Demos' Review

Clocking in with 18 songs, New York City’s The Cash Registers album is a breathtaking listen. Most songs are under two minutes in length and seven are under a minute with the classic Short Attention Span hitting just four seconds on the stopwatch. “Kojack” layers some punk
