Music Street Journal “Track by Track” Review: Mark Duda “Month of Sundays”

13 Jun

“If you like The Ramones (and really, who doesn’t?), you should like this. It shares a lot of ground with that band. It’s a short little six song EP that mostly works well.

Month of Sundays: Punk with some hints of country music, this is a stomper. It’s pretty mainstream stuff, but with a raw edge. It rocks.

Murder on Delancey: The blend of sounds here is punk with classic rock and roll mixed into it. This reminds me a lot of The Ramones. Cheetah Chrome guests on this tune, as does Bobby Rondinelli.

Standoff Love: I dig the wailing sax on this tune. The cut has that same Ramones element merged with some old school doo wop. It’s a fun number.

Worse for Wear: A mellower cut, this one really doesn’t work at the beginning. The vocals are too rough around the edges. It’s kind of power ballad with some country in the mix. It’s just a little too DIY in places for my ears. That said, it’s not a complete mis-fire.  It does have its charms and parts that work.

Connection: With a definite 70s rock edge, this is a stomper. It’s one of the most mainstream things here. It’s also one of my favorites. It rocks.

Subway Song: This is very rooted in old school rock and roll with some country in it. I suppose The Ramones is a valid reference on this”

Music Street Journal “Track by Track” Review: J-Bella “All For Nothin”

8 Jun

“The singing is what works the best here. The more that element is left alone to carry the music, the better it is. The music overall has both a modern pop element and a lot of old school soul and R&B built into it.

Shine (Remix): Piano leads out, but a modern rhythmic element quickly emerges. High pitched vocals join, bringing a bit of a soulful edge. This is a pop styled cut that is catchy and energized. While the music is over-produced, and the vocals get to be at points, the bulk of the singing is left clean enough to “shine.”

I Choose You: I like this song quite a bit. It has a lot of old school R&B charm to it. This one avoids the over-production that was heard on the first song. I love the way the two voices work together.

All for Nothin’: A mellower tune, this works reasonably well. It’s not as strong as the last piece, though. It’s more of a ballad. It just doesn’t have as much of the old school magic.

Game: With more of a modern pop element at its heart, this has some classy R&B sound infused, too. I dig the guitar solo on the cut. That guitar manages to hold a big chunk of the piece. The saxophone is a nice touch, as well.

Haters: The vocals are the selling point on this song. The backing arrangement is just sort of average modern mellower stuff. The singing, though, really stands tall.

Up Down: I love the vocal performance on this cut, too. The piece is energized and more rocking It works better than the last couple songs.

Shine: I like this version of the opener better than that one. It doesn’t suffer from the over-production. That let’s this really breathe. It’s based on one of the best vocal performances here. Given the competition, that says a lot.

Shine (Bonus Mix): The closer is another mix of the song. I’d say that this one lands in the middle of the other two in terms of effectiveness.”

MLWZ Review: Mark Duda “Month of Sundays” (translated)

“A large dose of melody based on the traditional rock and punk – the album “Month Of Sundays” is a great tribute to the club and music scene of the 70s and 80s.

Mark Duda is a New York artist who sings, plays guitar and has a remarkable talent for writing good songs with distinct punk-rock overtones. Throughout his career, he collaborated the teams Handful of Mad City Rockers, the New York Dolls and Dead Boys.

Duda is on “Month Of Sundays” in the form of both high compositional, arrangement and vocal. His debut solo album is sounding cool climates maintained in the punk era. Invited the cooperation of enjoying the status of the legendary rhythm section: Thommy Price – Kenny Aaronson (Joan Jett and the Blackhearts, Billy Idol), and guitarist Jimi K. Bonesa (Blondie) and “godfather of punk guitar” because this is defined as the Cheetah Chrome of the Dead Boys group.

The album contains six tracks where the next blockbuster and catchy choruses and catchy dynamic rhythms appear sentimental melodic ballads. Bagpipe music is filled with typical New York sound, energy and vitality. I think that it should find a lot of amateurs. Therefore strongly recommend it. Well worth it!”
