Since the beginning of his career, Josh Ritter has been on our radar at WNRN, but no project has caught my attention more than this new one. Album number 8, Sermon on the Rocks, also represents a sharp contrast from the last project that was quieter and filled with the emotions of the break up of his marriage. This new project is upbeat, full of vivid characters, and written in a way that shows his obvious love of language. The single, Getting Ready to Get Down, has some clear biblical references. There are more sprinkled through out the album, but that track throws them out fast and furious!
The holiday season is just around the corner and I am happy to share with you the first full album from BØRNS as WNRN’s Electric CD of the Month for November. Dopamine is an electronic rock album that employs a deep sense of composition to bring some depth to synthesizers that can feel cold and robotic.
The album begins with “10,000 Emerald Pools” and “Dug My Heart” showing off Garrett Borns as a force to be reckoned with. “Electric Love” you have likely heard on WNRN and snapped your fingers to. The Michigan native has a voice that soars in the style of Frankie Valli, or possibly, Ronnie Spector.
