Young Heirlooms: The Hammer

The Young Heirlooms are releasing a new album tonight called The Hammer. I agreed to do this review three weeks ago, so the day before it comes out should be the ideal time to get started on it, right? Uh… sorry, Young Heirlooms. I’ll get on this right away.

But, like the band itself, there’s so much more roiling beneath the surface.

CincyMusic Fall Spotify Playlist

When the leaves start to fall from the trees, my music playlists switch from upbeat to more mellow. While jam bands, EDM, hip-hop, and faster feminist rock rule my summer months, folk, alt-country, and singer-songwriter music creeps its way back into the prominent position on my playlists.

TALK is a self-described soul-filled psychedelic rock band. This local band may be new to the scene, but can take you back to a happier time. They just released their debut self-titled album in April. You can catch them at BLINK on Saturday on the Findlay Market Stage at 8p.

Blue Wisp Big Band 2017

A jazz big band is quite a thing, something unto itself. It’s an organic unit — a molecular structure, so to speak — that happened to form over time and makes sense, as does a piano trio or a string quartet.
