Kosheen's third album release on Moksha Recordings, 'Damage', which references both the electronica of the debut album 'Resist', and the creativity and darkness of the second 'Kokopelli', with early '80s synths, hefty beats, acidic bleeps, morricone guitars and haunting piano. Featuring singles 'Overkill' and 'Guilty' UK Edition also includes 2 additional tracks which are not on the Universal Music Edition: 'Professional Friend' & 'Analogue Street Dub'.
Aaron Thomas is really something else. I stumbled on him while trolling though the pages of eMusic recently. Thomas is a singer-songwriter with a bit of a folk like flare accompanied by emotional lyrics. Although he is a bit aloof, as he only seems to have a myspace page, if I were a record label I would be all over his nuts like a squirrel looking for acorns.

Pieta Brown paints a big picture with tiny, beautiful strokes on her deeply introspective set Remember the Sun. Like an impressionist masterpiece, whose dabs of color only take form when you step back to see the whole, so it is with this set, whose overarching themes gradually form intertwining patterns. The sullied "Innocent Blues" is a dreamy, musing number that searches in vain for peace, a clean environment, and freedom for all. But regardless of the turmoil, the world keeps spinning and we all keep "Rollin' Down the Track," doing the best we can, with Brown playing her country blues away the only way she knows how.
"Smile" is the second studio album by "Danger Danger" front-man Ted Poley, originally released in 2007. In contrast to its predecessor, "Smile" as a release falls clearly in the melodic rock/AOR genre perhaps partly influenced by the change in record label (Poley has been signed to "Frontiers" records since "Smile"). The melodies and vocal hooks are plentiful and the music is how melodic rock should be.
From start to finish, "Collateral Damage" is an absolute triumph and Ted's vocals never sounded better. It's so refreshing to actually see an artist mature over the years and this is very true of Ted Poley. From his glory days back in DANGER DANGER till the more intricate, well written and brilliantly arranged music he is putting out today, Poley has definitely come a long way. Joined by long-time friend and fellow DANGER DANGER band mate Andy Timmons on guitar for this one. "Collateral Damage" is Ted Poley and AOR at its best!

British singer/songwriter Judith Owen's eclecticism has seen her records shelved in the rock, folk, and jazz sections of record stores. She was born the daughter of an opera singer and began writing songs as a teenager. Becoming a professional musician, she met and married actor/musician Harry Shearer and contributed vocals and keyboards to his 1994 album, It Must Have Been Something I Said. Her debut solo album, Emotions on a Postcard, was released on her own Dog on the Bed label in 1996. Among its songs was "Hand on My Heart," which was featured in the 1997 film As Good as It Gets and appeared on the soundtrack album. Owen befriended singer/songwriter Julia Fordham and appeared on Fordham's albums East West and That's Live. Another musical association was struck up with Richard Thompson, which led to Owen's appearances on the Thompson albums Mock Tudor, 1000 Years of Popular Music, and Old Kit Bag…
