Stream of Consciousness Review: Belle of the Fall

Stream of Consciousness Review by Frank Critelli Belle of the Fall – Earthbound   Beautifully recorded. Lovely vocals. Simple but effective instrumentation. Persistently understated. A playful slow-dance. “They’ll” probably play the fun tracks on the radio. And although they are a welcome distraction, those tracks aren’t necessarily characteristic or representative of Belle of the Fall.

My Week That Was DJ: G.Gone’s Top 10 Albums of 2015 Last year, after many idle years, I resurrected my Top 10 list. With that, I lamented the shift in music distribution – the way music reaches our ears nowadays – and the overwhelming amount of music vs. the time to actually listen. I personally

Jose Oyola – On The Sofa w/ Frank Critelli

I found Jose Oyola (of Jose Oyola and The Astronauts) to be friendly and pleasant in every regard. I like his record, and I had a great experience at the Hologram CD Release Show at College Street Music Hall. Directly after this interview, Jose scooted off to another meeting, and I had Mexican food with
