|MH-278 Thirsty Fish - Watergate
Watergate is the very latest wikileak from Dumbfoundead, Psychosiz and Open Mike Eagle, the three-headed chimera that make up Los Angeles' Thirsty Fish. While each is an established solo artist, coming together as Thirsty Fish has allowed them to indulge different sides of their personalities and explore the sounds that come out of the synergy. Featuring invited guests Busdriver and Swim Team over production by a slew of heavy hitters including Para One, Exile, Daedelus and Tokimonsta, each member is at the top of his game. The album displays all the elements that make up the Project Blowed signature. It is melodic and wity without losing any of its verbose bite. The songs are clever, the concepts relatable, the hooks embed in your brain, and the lyricism does not disappoint. Watergate proves that not only is hip-hop alive and well, it's Thirsty, in the form of Open Mike Eagle, Psychosiz and Dumbfoundead.

|Singer/songwriter Pierre Hall has released a new album entitled "Tender Is The Night" under the name Golden Glow. Pierre was once a member of the British-pop band Lead Balloons until 2009. After a car accident that left him unable to walk for 6 months, Pierre rethought his musical approach and began Golden Glow.Pierre's deep voice draws similarities to Peter Murphy on the album's opening track "Adore Me" as the music plays out like a dance beat highlighted by some punk guitar strums. The album starts to take off with "The Cure" as his voice and chorus are irresistible. The demo sounding "The Blizzard" captures that moment of recording that overdubs would only ruin. Although the sound is a bit rough, it plays perfectly into the overall sound Pierre is trying to portray. Pierre' s voice once again deepens to reflect the combination of singers Lou Reed and Leonard Cohen, especially on the mellow "All Time". He rocks out on the aggressive sounding "At A Loss" before returning back to the more pop friendly "Streetlighter". Check out his videos to get a sense at how much talent Pierre Hall has to give. - My Record Journal
