Eyebrow: Garden City

Read "Garden City" reviewed by Bruce Lindsay

Mention the idea of the “garden city" to the good people of Britain and the likeliest (polite) response will be “Welwyn" or perhaps “Letchworth." Bristol, home to Eyebrow, isn't such a settlement but Garden City is the name the duo has given to its fourth album release.

Pete Judge and Paul Wigens formed Eyebrow ...

Get The Blessing: OCDC

Read "OCDC" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff

OCDC è il classico album che farà irritare i puristi. E i Get the Blessing, quartetto di Bristol qui alla loro terza prova discografica, si capisce subito che si divertono un mondo a sovvertire le regole del mainstream con un jazz iperitmico, venato di rock e trascinato dalle tipiche e melodiche evoluzioni dei fiati - tromba e sassofoni - ...
