This Is Book’s Music: “We Are All Famous is pop eclecticism at its very best.”

January 26th, 2013

An excellent review of Jim of Seattle from This Is Book’s Music: “If music is a game, We Are All Famous is a practical game piece and Jim Of Seattle is a very spirited player. Others may give up on the game due to exhaustion, but Jim Of Seattle is not in it to win it, but merely to play for the spirit of playing. For that, he is a gold medal winner.”

Ain’t Blue – “Dissonance for the sake of dissonance”

January 26th, 2013

Hi-de-ho! Another review for “Ain’t Blue”. “Some parts of the record go in the directions that feel somewhat unnecessary  Dissonance for the sake of dissonance and off key jams for the sake of off key jams. These parts could have been completely left out, but then again, maybe that’s the point.” Nic or William at Monolith-Sound

TOM DYER- I AIN’T BLUE ANYMORE- GREEN MONKEY- Interesting batch of bluesy tunes from Seattle guy Tom Dyer. His first record was released in ’83 and this is his 5th since 2009. A few choice covers (Captain Beefheart and The Sonics) and some hearty originals. Support true independent music! – Dagger

January 25th, 2013

Another fine review for Ain’t Blue from All Whats Rock: “Tom Dyer’s music not only has spirit, it is rooted in tradition, ripe with potential and different enough to bring a pause for thought, and that to me is worth it’s weight in gold.” ~ Nathan Pike

Tom Dyer: Human Pot!

January 24th, 2013

This review of I Ain’t Blue in Scallywag Magazine is totally hilarious.

“Dyer is so underground that he might be at the core of the Earth right now playing gigs for molten sea monkeys who run it.”

BL Rag: Tom Dyer Stands On His Own

January 19th, 2013

“I always endeavor to seek out the odd and the inspired in the musical realm. True characters who stand on their own and are unafraid to be themselves. In that tradition of individualism comes Seattle singer/songwriter Tom Dyer. His new album “I Ain’t Blue Anymore” shows a complete lack of self-consciousness, for the most part to it’s credit. Dyer’s voice is low and gruff, sometimes manic, and musically, dissonance can be found on every track, so this is definitely not coffee shop tunes, but who wants that? Dyer cooks up a musical gumbo that owes it’s inspiration to everything from rockabilly and punk to blues and industrial. He also plays all the instruments here. My personal highlight of the release would be “John the Revelator” for its possessed energy, and “The Ballad of Carlton IV”, “Smithsonian Institute Blues” (a Captain Beefheart cover), and “Walking in the Sky” fall into the “must listen” category. If you’re looking for a smart release with plenty of storytelling and quirky wisdom, check out the aptly titled “I Ain’t Blue Anymore”. BL Rag

“Ain’t Blue” Reviewed in IAE

January 19th, 2013

“I Ain’t Blue Any More, should be respected as one of the best NON-cliche albums released in 2012.  Don’t expect to hear the “oh, baby I love you”, or the typical blues songs about “my baby done left me”.  What you will hear on Tom Dyer’s new album is an emotionally driven vocal performance and true storytelling, something you will not get from 95% of the artists releasing commercially sold music today.” - Senseitional I Am Entertainment

Green Pajamas for Portugal!!!

January 19th, 2013

Some Portuguese Green Pajama blog action at man on the moon

Google Translation: The Green Pajamas – Death By Misadventure

Death By Misadventure is a dizzying exercise psicadelia, full of references related to the supernatural, myths, ancient legends and novels! A concept album, as I mentioned, about the life cycle of a beehive and therefore with some sinister ideas, even when the songs speak of the sun or the magic of life, since everything revolves around the death of the queen bee , by his subjects after food and stir it causes within the hive itself. This death is detailed with all the luxuries in The Queen Bee’s Last Tango, when you can listen She strips off her girdle, slips off her swastika ring, While 17 boys dressed up the dolls and toys blow the king, In the opium fog, the prince and his dog start to sing, And there’s no sense of the sorrow to befall them all tomorrow. A party, so …

In short, the Balkan folk of The Queen Is Dead Bee to pop made with synthesized keyboards 2nd To The Reward, reminiscent Golden Brown by The Stranglers, Death By Misadventure proof that The Green Pajamas have an amazing ability to engage in around an idea and give it life, taking us this time through a stream sound very theatrical, to the interior of a beehive, a job that goes far beyond her own songs and proves that genius and extreme ingenuity this band from Seattle.
Hopefully aprecies suggestion …
