25th anniversary reissue of The Cranberries’ debut album
Pacific Breeze documents Japan’s blast into the stratosphere. By the 1960s, the nation had achieved a postwar miracle, soaring to become the world’s second largest economy. Thriving tech exports sent The Rising Sun over the moon. Its pocket cassette players, bleeping video games, and gleaming cars boomed worldwide, wooing pleasure points and pumping Japanese pockets full of yen.
‘After The Curtains Close’ sees Jonathan Bree’s trademark orchestral pop take a few unexpected turns into the experimental and sometimes kitschy territory
The seventh album of revered J.J. Cale, Grasshopper (1982) continues where he left off with his previous album Shades: tight, stripped-down country rock but with an increased energy level. Some even call the album Pop, which isn’t so strange when listening to songs like “City Girls” and “Nobody But You” (the latter which incorporates an amazingly infectious horn section).
As always, J.J. Cale doesn’t disappoint with Grasshopper, taking his solid recognizable sound one step further into the eighties. Music On Vinyl’s release of Grasshopper is the first since 1982, finally available on heavy duty vinyl!
