Kenny Millions & Kresten Osgood - “Copenhagen Bluez”

(MuteAnt Sounds)

The wooly and wild duo of Kenny Millions and Kresten Osgood crank out a mean free jazz thrash of a dirty blues, psyched-out rock, and untethered off-kilter yelling.

A jumbled and careening drum kit falls down a flight of stairs as a fuzzy electric guitar is fed into a wood chipper. Kenny Millions flings greasy clumps of partially chewed up lyrics at the microphone just before a halloween organ bursts onto the scene, belching rubber spiders.

A frightened saxaphone cries into the ambivalent night, searching for one of it's brass parents. Nothing but angular shadows cover the uneven ground. A drunken miscreant sleeping it off overnight screams unintelligible nightmares from his cell.

Kenny Millions is on a rampage. Not even the gentle gospel of the jazz organ can cool him for long. At last he stands bare naked in the creul spotlight, howling every conjugation of expletive his frantic mind can muster.

That's Copenhagen Bluez

Alex Hunnicutt - "Honey" 

The writers here at Houdini Mansions are no strangers to The Craving; the constant, gnawing hunger for different and challenging music. This insatiable desire drives us to dig through the digital crates of the Internet in the desperate hope of discovering something rare and delightful. Sometimes, we’re looking for something visceral, other times we need something more cerebral; but occasionally, we just need something that satisfies our musical sweet tooth.

Honey is the latest release from smooth rock and blues guitarist Alex Hunnicutt. Each one of the album’s eight tracks is endowed with a funky groove that serves to underscore Hunnicutt’s soulful singing and highlight his technical proficiency on the guitar. As a collection of songs, it is extremely appealing to both pop and light rock sensibilities

This is the kind of music my dad and I could agree upon. It has a little bit of something for most musical palates. In fact, I recommend pairing Honey with liquid spirits and good company.
