1 - DYER, TOM - I AIN'T BLUE ANYMORE - (CD) 
GREEN MONKEY


Green Monkeys Tom Dyer is a Seattle guy with an inconsistent musical predilection. With his fifth album since 2009 and his eighth overall, he has abandoned some of the eclectism that marked his previous solo work and created his most cohesive album. Dyer: "I thought I was making a blues record all the way, but with covers of The Sonics and Captain Beefheart, Im guessing most people wont think that." Mix those two up with a love for Howlin Wolf, Son House, and John Lee Hooker; and you start to get the idea. This is a one man show; Dyer playsevery instrument; he recorded, mixed and mastered it. The songs range from the traditional John The Revelator to the topical There Be Killin (In My Town).

2 - DYER, TOM - XMAS-30 YEARS IN THE MAKING - (CD) 
GREEN MONKEY


Tom Dyer's seventh record since 2009 is an eclectic dose of rocking Christmas fun. Xmas-30 Years In The Making features the popular No Lou This Xmas inspired by the late, great Lou Reed. Written and released one week before Christmas 2013, it was the final brick that Dyer needed for this album, recorded sporadically since 1983.Tom Dyer is a Seattle guy with an inconsistent musical predilection, the King of Stylistic Variation, which is in fullforce here. We've got a choral number, the Lou Reed tribute, a guitar instrumental, a torch song, a little swing sextet,folky-protest, ska, a sea chanty, some bad country, many guitar solos, plus a nice selection of minor Pacific NW music deities, with Gary Minkler from Red Dress, the Green Pajamas Jeff Kelly and many more. Despite seeming like an unholy mess on paper, it hangs together into a pleasing, (mostly) non-secular holiday adventure.
