This is an advance copy of the album as you can see. There is
only a generic white sleeve for the disc, there is no artwork or
cover or anything whatsoever.

Originally known as The Postman Syndrome and now known as
Biclops, Day Without Dawn’s final album, “Understanding
Consequences”, stands as a glowing aural cenotaph, that in a
perfect world, would be paid tribute to by many. Despite the
bands relative mainstream obscurity, the music they continue to
create encompasses a wide palette of influences while
simultaneously pushing them all forward in vast, haunting
directions.

As their multiple name changes and line-up shifts could attest,
the group have continued to evolve over the years and so have
their songs – most of which have now taken on an almost ethereal
life of their own. While the band have seen fit to indulge in
some relative excess, they rarely go far enough to alienate the
listener, even with stunning complexity in place. This is in part
thanks to the ever-crafty rhythm section which sees deftly tapped
basslines spiral in and out of focus as kinetic drumbeats
continually till the foundations.

Despite its constant shifting, this strong and engaging
infrastructure lends itself to a bond of solidarity between the
often celestial guitar melodies and charming vocals. While these
elements definitely draw favorable comparisons to that of dredg
and Tool, there is far too much intoxicating emotion and artistry
present to write them off as clones. Meanwhile, despite the bands
luminous display of prog and technical chops, not to mention
external instrumentation, they also retain a bestial edge that
can erupt at any given time. Far too often bands like this fall
victim to a lack of balance that leads to a schizophrenic
rigidity.

Day Without Dawn on the other hand have hit a near-perfect
mixture that fully envelops the listener in waves of ethereal
melody and jaw-dropping beauty. They can just as easily astound
with a bare bones The Police-styled arrangement as they can
bruise with a beefy metal-laden pummeling. Bored of metalcore,
deathcore and the ‘neurisis’? Look no further for “Understanding
Consequences” is practically essential listening to maintain
sanity and hope for music in 2008.

Born to Sing: No Plan B is Van Morrison’s first studio offering
in four years and his second for Blue Note. It is the longest
span of studio silence in his career. Uncharacteristically, he
recorded the set in his hometown of Belfast with a crack sextet
that includes a three-piece horn section with an alto saxophone.
Trombonist Alistair White also features prominently; his warm
timbres, muted colors, and delightful solos are centerpieces in
many songs. Born to Sing: No Plan B is more jazz-centric, but not
at the expense of his trademark Celtic swing, blues, and soul.
Morrison’s singing is unfettered, relaxed, and unguarded. His
charts are simultaneously more sophisticated and organic. “Open
the Door (To Your Heart)” opens with a souled-out guitar atop a
laid-back B-3 and Memphis-styled bassline. The horns groove
underneath Morrison’s vocal, which is underscored by piano vamps.
Lyrically, he states one of the album’s primary themes: the real
cost of materialism and greed. The soul-drenched “End of the
Rainbow” and the old-school R&B set closer, “Educating Archie,”
also address the theme directly and tastefully. But it’s “If in
Money We Trust” — the set’s finest moment — where he gets down
inside it and lays out his truth with some of the finest low-end
singing of his career in a brooding jazz-blues with meaty piano,
canny interwoven dialogue between the horns, and taut bass and
hand percussion that bubble in the pocket. That theme aside, this
isn’t a political record; it’s not preachy, angry, or even
disillusioned. It’s Morrison merely laying down his own analytic
reportage from the headlines. The title cut is a strolling R&B
arrangement that certainly evokes those he heard from bar bands
as a kid in Belfast. In it one can hear everyone from Fats Domino
to Belfast’s Bluebeats Show Band in the arrangement — check the
muted trombone break answered by clarinet. The breezy, ironic
“Goin Down to Monte Carlo” bemusedly contains John Paul Sartre’s
infamous “Hell is other people.” The tune suggests that the most
vapid place on earth is perhaps the best place to “get some
peace.” It contains an upright bass solo, a gorgeous muted
trumpet break, and fine, laid-back scat singing from Morrison.
Likewise, “Close Enough for Jazz” (an older instrumental with
lyrics) is a perfect meld of swinging R&B and post-swing jazz.
“Mystic from the East” and “Retreat and View” are spiritual in
nature; they connect directly to a constant theme in Morrison’s
oeuvre. The darker side of spirituality is evoked in “Pagan
Heart,” with Morrison paying tribute to John Lee Hooker via
snarling electric guitar playing, as well as Robert Johnson in
the lyric. Morrison sounds fully engaged, revitalized, even
ambitious. On Born to Sing: No Plan B he’s compiled the various
elements of his musical oeuvre and assembled them into a
seamless, glorious whole.

US version was released in 2007.

Music plays a key part in Juno, the way-too-charming indie comedy
directed by Jason Reitman and written by Diablo Cody. Juno, the
pregnant teen of the title role, isn’t just a kid who loves rock
& roll; she and her boyfriend Paulie Bleeker play guitars
together, the adoptive father of Juno’s kid is a recovering
grunge rocker who toured the world and elsewhere in 1993, and
Reitman punctuates the film with songs, both classic rock and
precious twee folk tunes from Kimya Dawson, formerly of the Moldy
Peaches. Some might say that the sickly sweet songs of Dawson
don’t fit comfortably alongside the Kinks, Mott the Hoople, and
Sonic Youth’s cover of the Carpenters’ “Superstar,” but a large
part of the appeal of Juno is how the world-weary sarcasm of
Gen-X rubs against the unapologetic quirkiness of Gen-Y, and the
soundtrack reflects that almost more than the movie, as the
Dawson songs are even more prominent on this 19-track album than
within the 90-minute movie. This may not be to everybody’s taste
— many found the twee tunes irritating, not charming — but
anybody who loved the movie completely will find the Juno
soundtrack just as witty and warm as the film itself.
