…then your face will surely show it.
Songs From The Vanished Frontier
Sam Cohen’s Yellowbirds are sure to help get your giddy on. With this sophomore
effort, Cohen’s transformation is all but complete. What was once a project from a former
member of a no-longer group is now a standing-on-its-own-two-feet band; what was once the
skeleton of a unique sound is now a fully-developed, beautiful landscape of music. On
Songs From The Vanished Frontier, every little thing is in the right place and the
result is the goods. So smile!

The Blank Tapes:
Hey there. Feeling a little mid-week blah? Need to put a smile on your face? Why don’t you
try some grin-inducing new music like The Blank Tapes’ aptly named Vacation.
With a sunny disposition and a sort of doo wop-swirled-psych-folk, this album is one toe-
tapping, good-times track after another. The good vibes melodies run counter to a lot of
the lyrics (note that tidal wave, snake and lurking somethings on the cover), but no
matter, turn your frown upside down with this fantastic music.
