Sage Francis - Human the Death Dance

One of underground's biggest rappers from the smallest state has risen again to present one of his best albums to date. Sage Francis's 2nd release for Epitaph records Human the Death Dance is a cryptic look into this MC's journey. With a storybook lyrical flow mastered from his Poetry Slam days, Sage has his feet strongly planted in hip hop with this dark and powerful piece of art. Do yourself a favor and enjoy what Sage Francis has been dying for. True Hip Hop Sucka! - chongo Released 05.08.2007

Elliott Smith - New Moon (Kill Rock Stars)

Elliott Smith was the fifth Beatle, just born at the wrong time, and in Nebraska. With George as the quiet one, Elliott would be the sad one. He created beautiful melodies and harmonies over his seven profound years as a solo artist, a number of which remained officially unreleased. New Moon is not a collection of throw-away demos or re-arranged sound fragments, but rather 24 must-hear songs recorded between 1995's Elliott Smith and Either/Or in 1997. - cormac Released 05.08.2007

Wheat - Everyday I Said a Prayer for Kathy and Made a One Inch Square (Empyrean)

True to their roots, Wheat's fourth album feels like a sonic art project disguised as an indie rock record. Aside from a few head-bobbers, notably "Move = Move," at least half the record qualifies as slow-burning sound experimentation, topped off by loose, meandering vocal melodies. This isn't feelgood summertime car stereo fare; it's a classic grower, and feels intensely personal. This album almost requires—and rewards—the use of headphones, heart, and mind. - marnie c.

Great Northern - Trading Twilight for Daylight (Eenie Meenie)

Great Northern's Trading Twilight for Daylight has a soothing, introspective tone, thanks to neatly arranged songs using piano, synths and swirling guitars under mesmerising vocals. The band transmit a poppy, radio-friendly persona, particularly with "Just a Dream." Tracks like "Telling Lies" present a hopeful, upbeat mood that wouldn't be out of place if featured on Grey's Anatomy. Overall, this work is easy on the ears and perfect for summer. - miriam Released 05.15.2007

Albert Hammond, Jr. - Yours to Keep (Scratchie/New Line)

From the first strains of toy piano to the neatly placed acoustic guitar riffs, Yours to Keep sounds a little bit like what could've happened if the Strokes had met on the warm streets of L.A. and spent some time in the sun before recording. Nonetheless, Strokes references should be kept to a bare minimum because Hammond more than holds his own when flying the nest. This is an album for just about anyone interested in acquiring some awesome new pop music for the upcoming summer days. - diana Released 03.06.2007

It's a reasonable question. The idea was born during our daily music chats, while discussing reviews we'd read. There was only one thing we consistently agreed on: they were too long. It seemed the point of how the music sounded and whether or not it was good was lost in an overlong mess of lyric quotes, personal accounts and a seemingly desperate attempt to fulfill a word count. Eventually someone said, "It's gotten to the point where if you can't say it in 75 words or less, you should shut the eff up". Within a week, 75orless.com was born. The best part about our limit is its reversal of typical music reviews. We limit the amount of words we use, and are not required to reach a number.

Welcoming electronic, hip-hop, indie, folk, punk, disco, pop, cock rock, math rock, brit pop, nu gaze, blues, garage, country, new new wave, rockabilly, idm, crust, techno, grindcore and all other music submissions. Where words with 2 letters or fewer do not count.
