...BECAUSE SOME OF US THINK THAT THIS STUFF IS IMPORTANT
What happens when you mix what is - arguably - the world's most interesting record company, with an anarchist manic-depressive rock music historian polymath, and a method of dissemination which means that a daily rock-music magazine can be almost instantaneous?

Most of this blog is related in some way to the music, books and films produced by Gonzo Multimedia, but the editor has a grasshopper mind and so also writes about all sorts of cultural issues which interest him, and which he hopes will interest you as well.

AUBURN…’MIXED FEELINGS’
(Bat Country Records/Scarlet Records) Reviewed 19th October 2015

I love something a little different and here is the latest release from UK artist Liz Lenten and her band Auburn. This is a lovely slab of laid back acoustic based music to listen too after a hard day at the office! Liz’s voice has been described as “so sweet it’ll make your hair curl” and “husky with an emotional frailty”, and that sums it up rather nicely. There are 12 tracks here with influences that include among others a unique blend of Americana Blues and Roots music, this being written by Liz over a two month period on a vintage Martin guitar called Rosie, that she ‘stole’ from her good friend and sound engineer Justin. ‘Mixed Feelings’ was recorded in Nashville, like the band’s previous appropriately titled recording ‘Nashville’, and is a strong album covering all the usual emotional issues - love, loss, domestic abuse and manslaughter, confusion, trust, friendship etc etc. To be honest, I am personally enjoying listening to this cd, with fave tracks being the bluesy opener and title track ‘Mixed Feelings‘, the beautiful ‘Lovers Lullaby’ and the country feel of ‘Out There’. Each song on this long player tells their own little story and I wholeheartedly recommend this album, Liz I believe to be on a par with other artists within this genre of music and as a consequence, should be recognised as such. Check out the band's website at www.auburn.org.uk..8.25/10 (Dave)
