We hope the new “Album Of The Month” poll, like the “Album Of The Year” poll, helps you discover cool new music.
We have three awesome nominations for “Album Of The Month February 2015”. They are all from the USA, from Rusty Zinn, The New Riddim & The Lions.
Guitarist/songwriter Rusty Zinn is at home in different musical styles, from Reggae To Blues. On his seventh album, he revisits old Jamaican styles including Ska and Rocksteady.
The New Riddim from Kansas City in the US have been playing live with the likes of Chris Murray & The Slackers. Fans one those will also like the second album “Second Sight”.
As a L.A. supergroup (featuring members of Hepcat, The Expanders, Ocean 11, The Keytones and more), with the backing of the amazing label Stones Throw and with a unique retro sound for today, The Lions have all the ingredients for a crossover success. How big will “Soul Riot” be?
