Night Beat Rewind: May 2015

We seem to be back on Schedule. April is up and linked and now May has been finished with a few days to go. If the release schedule has its Summer Slowdown I may even have the breathing room needed to make a proper #PlatVnyl5 awards ceremony. We did have some individual songs released during May


The Singles Scene

  • Salt of The Sound - Dwell Among Us 4.75 Emeralds
Although like the 45 there are two sides to these singles they only usually pick one to announce. So, this month it really is a single single scene. We move on to the albums that did not get included in the pool.

Missing The Mark

  • Audio Adrenaline - Sound of The Saints 3.75 Emeralds
  • Faith Child - Airborne 3.75 Emeralds
  • Jerry Fee - We Are The Voices 3.75 Emeralds
  • Gemstones - Blind Elephant 3.75 Emeralds
  • Hillsong United - Empires 3.75 Emeralds
  • Unspoken - Unplugged 3.75 Emeralds
  • Various - Tyscot Loud Platinum Mixtape 3.50 Emeralds
What can I say? I know I don't like Audio Adrenaline 3.0. They have made great strides in becoming a band that people will swear they've heard before, and that is the problem. They used to have a fairly unique sound. And with the exception of EDM outreach Hillsong Young and Free everything out of Sydney these days sounds pretty much mailed in. As opposed to our next grouping.


Pure Platinum Perfection

  • Anberlin - Never Take Friendship Personal Live In New York City 5 Emeralds
  • Foreverlin - Still After 5 Emeralds
  • Plumb - Exhale 5 Emeralds
Really not much to say here. Anberin (should I say the late Anberlin?) and Plumb are consistently excellent. Foreverlin is a new discovery, yet I like them. Now for those in between the extremes.

Semi-Precious Metals

  • 21 Pilots - Blurryface 4.75 Emeralds
  • Abandon Kansas - Alligator 4.75 Emeralds
  • Blanca - Blanca 4.75 Emeralds
  • Cornell Burton, Jr - The Singles EP 4.50 Emeralds
  • Elim Sound - Elim 100 4.50 Emeralds
  • Emery - You Were Never Alone 4.75 Emeralds
  • CJ Emulous - Light It Up 4.50 Emeralds
  • Chad Evans - Before and After 4.75 Emeralds
