Review Roundup: Brad Blume, Mark Lennon, and Gumbo

Written on October 16, 2009 – 12:40 pm | by whiskeychick |

For today’s Review Roundup, we’ll spin a track with Brad Blume, Mark Lennon, and Gumbo.

Brad Blume: “Poor Depressed Me” - This one has a classic cryin’ country song sound. Steel, sadness, and a little bit of quirk. The vocals are a bit nasal, but the song is worth a spin.

Mark Lennon: “Down The Mountain” - The synthesizer is a bit much in the intro, but after that, a good 70’s light rock song blossoms out. Imagine The Allman Brothers if you will. Could be a catchy radio song if they replaced the ballpark organ with perhaps more steel or even a harmonica.

Gumbo: “It’s Raining” - I think I just fell into a tiny bar on the outskirts of New Orleans. You know.. the kind with ratty stools, no booths, and a stage in the corner made of pallets. A sleepy guitar and some good day-drinking. This might be my favorite Roundup track yet.

Review Roundup has our staff listen to 3 singles, submitted to us at ReviewShine, and give their gut reaction.
