Americana Rock Mix Review - “I’m Dead, Serious” by Micah Schnabel

It’s undeniable that Micah is a master of the “lamenting-a-failed-relationship” song. The “what ifs”, “should haves”, and “wish I didn’t’s” of any failed relationship are all present in familiar form. From the opening line of the opening song, “Choir Boys”, the tone for the album is set by the line “You’ve got to be kidding me. Is this really how this is gonna end?”. The theme of heartbreak is run straight through to a line in the final track of the album, “This is My Headstone”, where he confesses “It takes a better man than me, I guess, to carry all this loneliness. If you want to know my one regret, well, I never really found her”.

The songs of heartbreak and spite are entwined with tales of a weary traveling musician, and Micah’s disenchantment with religion. All proving entertaining because of the slick lyrics used. At any point, on any song, without fail you can imagine vividly what is being said both upfront and in between the lines.

As for the production, it seems that this album is a little less gritty that it’s predecessor. The arrangements are more pop oriented, but it works in a weirdly positive way. The poppy uptempo bass and piano intro of “The Heavy Things” starts you off happily (and later uncomfortably) singing along about the unfortunate death of a friend.

Overall it’s the perfect album to listen to if you’ve just broken up with your girlfriend or feel like sulking over a loss in general. But in a catchy way that could possibly cheer you up. (?)

The digital download of this album made it into my top 24 albums of 2011 (even though it’s physical release isn’t until 2012). For more info on Micah Schnabel go to:

THE AMERICANA ROCK MIX TOP 24 OF 2011 

Yeah, yeah. It’s that time of year again. Everyone is doing it, and so am I. My top albums of 2011.

This was a really tough list to gather. 2011 was crammed with amazing music, so that just made the decision making that much harder.

34 people e-mailed and messaged me with suggestions of what my final top number should be this year. Suggestions ranged from “Top 10″ to “Top 53″! That wasn’t going to happen anyway. But the most common number suggested was “Top 24″.

I didn’t implement any rules into this years list. As that was too much of a pain last year. So, it all comes down to what I was personally listening to the most this year.

Hopefully you’ll find an album or two on here that aren’t on anyone else’s lists.

This list is in no particular order.

- Yes And Also Yes by Mike Doughty

- Dark And Bloody GroundFifth On The Floor

- I’m DeadMicah Schnabel (NOTE: Even though the physical album doesn’t get released until 2012, the pre-order instant download makes it a 2011 contender)

Americana Rock Mix: Episode 125 - A Slightly Ranty Year Ender

This is the last episode of 2011!  It won’t be the last that you hear from me this year, just the last ARM episode. I get a little rant-ish (ranty?) in this episode, so if you can get around that, there’s plenty of new and awesome music to amuse you.
