Edwin - A review of his discography

Hey everyone,

Luke DeWitt here from Garden of Souls. Joao was kind enough to let me contribute to this blog, so I'm posting some info on one of my favorite artists, Canadian rock act Edwin. He was the singer for I Mother Earth for awhile, but he's now put out three of his own CDs and is one of the more overlooked artists, in my humble opinion.

His first CD, Another Spin Around the Sun, was a great acheivement and bosted two great singles, And You (which we play) and Alive. Some other great songs on this one include Trippin', Shotgun, Screaming Kings, Take Me Anywhere and the hidden track, Have Another Drink.
His 2nd Disc was done with the band The Pressure. This CD was heavier than the first, but still had his signature sound. Some great tracks off this one include Superhoney, Impossible, Let's Dance and Close Your Eyes.

His 3rd disc just came out and it's called Better Days. They just released his first single, Right Here, and other recommended tracks include Never Over, Wrong Side and a great acoustic version of Alive.

Well, hopefully, this won't be the only post I make, but I'll be pretty busy with things, so I'll hand it back over to Joao!


Duncan Sheik - A Home at the End of the World (Soundtrack)

Duncan Sheik is back in the spotlight now as he wrote the original musical score of the latest most-successful Broadway musical "Spring Awakening".
The reason I decided to post this (and it's almost 2:00AM), it's because I'll always admire Duncan Sheik's work. It's inevitable... This is a true masterpiece. Few reviews that I've found:
* Amazon: "It’s the half-dozen warm, introspective new tracks from Duncan Sheik that form the soundtrack's evocative emotional core, with melancholic, production-rich standouts like "Something Somewhere" infusing it with a smart, contemporary atmosphere."
* All Music Guide: "On the soundtrack to Michael Mayer's adaptation of Michael Cunningham's (The Hours) novel, Duncan Sheik takes the sensitivity and tension of the film's plot and crafts incidental music and new songs that complement the movie well."
* Barnes & Nobles: "Giving the disc a more contemporary flair is original material by Duncan Sheik, whose contributions here are more in line with his recent, orchestral-flavored work. The intricate string arrangement on the opening cut, "Something Somewhere," lends the piece a melancholic sheen. Elsewhere, Sheik offers two versions of "There's a Home": a stripped-down instrumental featuring acoustic guitar and an interpretation fleshed out by Sheik's vocals as well as piano and strings. With its array of sensitive songs anchored by Sheik's introspective contributions, the soundtrack for this Colin Farrell vehicle proves to be a good companion for a rainy day or a gloomy mood."
