Loud Rock Charts: 1/29

The week of January 29th brings upon us a very heavy slew of metal. Arguably the best record to drop so far, Vertikal sees Cult of Luna further themselves as the leaders in the post metal genre. I thought it was pretty darn tootin’ too.

Also brutalize our eardrums is Maelstrom’s newest record It Was Predestined and Ancient VVisdom’s (yep, that’s two V’s) Deathlike, who are actually playing at Slim’s in San Francisco on February 9th. If you like good music, which I’m sure you do since you’re reading this, why not check them out? I promise your ears will only bleed a little bit.

KZSC Jazz Charts

This week has been a little off in regards to the mail, so I’ve decided to do the charting early to get into a new flow of things. Additionally this week, I’m welcoming the Jazz Director intern Jared Frazier (Jamfrazi) into the circle. He will be gradually taking over the department by early April. I’m looking forward to another week of music.  Here’s this week’s charts.

Jazz Charts 1/22

After a wonderful holiday and inherent lack of mail, the jazz charts only have one new add: Jose James’ “No Beginning No End” which I am very excited to have. This album is where genres break down and the artist can be truly appreciated for his cutting edge approach to jazz, soul, and beyond.

Holy-Grail-Ride-the-Void

Loud Rock Charts: 1/22

In this week’s sexy edition of new Loud Rock, we see Holy Grail release one of the best album of the year so far with Ride the Void. It’s in the same vein as new classic metal, with a thrashy spin thrown on it. If you’re into some older stuff, like Judas Priest or Iron Maiden, definitely check this out.

On the other side of the genre map, black metal outfit Lightning Swords of Death release a very solid effort with Baphometic Chaosivm. Definitely check this stuff out. January is shaping up to be a really great month for metal.

Jazz Charts 1/15

Hello everyone,

Here is this week’s edition of the KZSC Jazz Charts. Topping them this week comes an independent/self release from vocalist Lauren Desberg with her EP “Sideways.” This album features many up and coming young jazz stars on the scene today including bassist Joshua Crumbly (Terence Blanchard, Taylor Eigsti), drummer Corey Fonville (Nicholas Payton, Christian Scott), and arrangements by recent Thelonious Monk competition winner in piano, Kris Bowers. The album is produced by all-star vocalist Gretchen Parlato and also features the unique musical expressions of Dayna Stephens and his tenor saxophone. More information and tunes can be heard at her website www.laurendesberg.com.

Other than that I got a TON of jazz incoming this week, thanks for the support!
