Eye - Center Of The Sun (2012)

I've only come across these guys in the past few day but their debute album Center Of The Sun has been on repeat ever since. Opening and title track Center Of The Sun is like a time machine back to the old days of Pink Floyd or Deep Purple. Dirty Hammond organ and fuzz guitar set the tone to this groove based journey with lyrics about galactic travel within and out. EYE are nothing new but are doing absolute justice. Check out EYE's live studio recoding below and keep an eye on the awesome skills of their keyboardist.

Dark Dark Dark - Who Needs Who (2012)

DDD's latest release has had a very different approach since their 2010 release Go Wild. The line up has slightly changed but core members still stand. I found the songs a little more stripped back and delivered as a live performance then a studio recording. I had the chance of seeing them perform this album earlier in the year and hearing this album pretty much exactly as i did that night which i find a little bit of a disappointment. I still really enjoy the flow and songwriting of Who Needs Who but wish it had more of the dubbing and vocal harmonies they have become so popular for and not having the piano being the basses for every song but three. A little let down but hey what ya gonna do, I still love these guys.
