On Oct. 24, I wrote up a piece about them crowd funding their latest album “Mortal Ghost”. Rusty Shipp did it! They succeeded, and now, “Mortal Ghost” is here for us to enjoy. It was worth the wait.

The first time Rusty Shipp graced Jealous Sounds was July of last year, when I reviewed their last EP “Hold Fast To Hope” . For the sake of brevity, I’m quoting myself here:
“First the facts: The guys came from all parts of the country to Nashville, found each other (Russ found Andrew on Craig’s list), and formed Rusty Shipp in 2014. The band consists of Russ T. Shipp (honestly his real name!) on lead guitar/ vocals, Andrew Royer on drums, and Dustin Herres on bass. The band has an eclectic range of influences, from 60’s-90’s rock, Hardcore Metal to surf rock. Their first EP, Hold Fast To Hope, was released in 2014…

Music Challenge #6 – Alestorm – ‘No Grave But the Sea’

Sharing this hilariously fun post by fellow blogger 2LOUD2OLDMUSIC of Alestorm’s new album.

For those that don’t know what the Music Challenge is I will tell you. Go out and pick up an album or stream an album based solely off one of three categories…1) Album Cover, 2) Band Name or 3) Album Name. Once you have listened to one, come tell me about it. My 6th pick is Alestorm and I chose it off the cover and the band name…here are my thoughts on it…(Parental Guidance is suggested…if foul language offends you than go read another post)

All my life, I have felt that something was missing. I didn’t know what it was and have struggled with it my whole life. Well that struggle is no more. The thing that was missing from it was PIRATE HEAVY METAL!!! Heavy Metal music with a pirate theme!! How have I never thought of that before. Thank God I found Alestorm to fill…

Why I miss my MTV

Sharing this great post from the Rock’n’Roll Shaman about how MTV lost its way.

The Church of Rock 'N' Roll.org

It was a month before my 7th birthday and when Radio Killed the Video star came on, MTV was alive. For the next decade if you wanted to make it, you had get video play on MTV. To some this new channel and way of exposing the masses to the music also provided the opportunity to shoot a movie. A lot of the most memorable videos from MTV’s history were the ones that were the most cinematic. It was in 1983 that Michael Jackson’s video for Thriller set the bar high for anyone who wanted to dominate the video air waves.

For over a decade it was pretty much a forgone conclusion that if you turned on MTV you saw music videos then something happened that changed all TV not only MTV forever. The Real world was the first reality TV show and it aired on MTV.

In the 90’s I…

King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard – ‘Flying Microtonal Banana’ – Album Review

Sharing this excellent review by fellow blogger 2Loud2OldMusic of King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard’s new album “Flying Microtonal Banana.”

2loud2oldmusic

For those that follow my blog, they might remember one of my first Music Challenges where I listened to an album based off the band’s name, album cover or name of the album.  I picked King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard’s album strictly because of their band name.  And to my surprise, I really loved the album.  When I saw they had a new album out, I naturally gravitated toward it and gave it a spin…a lot of spins.

Their new album is called ‘Flying Microtonal Banana’ and is their 9th studio album since 2012..that is right…9th!!  They also are planning on releasing not one, not two, but FIVE albums this year. Pretty ambitious and we will wait and see if they actually able to achieve said goal.

The band is out of Australia and actually has seven members.

  • Stu Mackenzie – lead vocals
  • Ambrose Kenny Smith – keyboards/synthesizer

Sounds Good / a music blog

/ SOUNDS GREAT /

Small music blogs are a great part of the music industry. As detailed in a wonderful article by ReverbNation recently, us enthusiastic music fans are responsible for helping out artists to help them create a bit of noise for themselves, hopefully lending some additional buzz along the way. One particular thing we’re great at doing is featuring bands who you may never have heard of before, and thanks to Mytacism Music, we heard about Violet Contours.
