The Universe By Ear is a group that I'd never heard of performing in a genre that I have started to listen to more and more but have only a thin background with. They are apparently from Switzerland and comprised of the following 3 members.

Stef Strittmacher (guitar, vocals)
Pascal Grünenfelder (bass, vocals)
Beni Bürgin (drums, vocals)

Each of these musicians turn in solid instrument performances throughout the record in a well blended rock album that runs 9 songs in just a bit under 48 minutes. It sounds like a band of polished musicians and song writers to me. They have a blend of rock styles on display made up of mostly Psychedelic, Blues, and some significant Progressive influences. The atmospheric and harmonic vocals weave around the artful application of guitar and bass and drums.

On the 4th track Dead End Town I hear the two singers ( I think) use the vocal trick that Alice In Chains mastered and then switch it up and go into a Beatles-esq harmony that my brain really liked. Another noteworthy turn is the 8th track Ocean/Clouds/Prism where we get a diverse mix of the skill set from shredding guitars to ethereal blues tinged noisescape.

The record has a pleasing sound for a casual listen on my home stereo as well as in my car. Id like to give this album a listen on my monitor headphones for my next listen as I suspect there is a meticulousness I am missing by listening to it in my media room and car.

In summary, I like the record and give it a 3 out of 5 stars. The Universe By Ear cleverly walks the line between being creative and interesting without falling through the trapdoors of being droning and or needlessly esoteric.

The Cardinals lost key safeties Tony Jefferson and D.J. Swearinger cheap jerseys wholesale in free agency a year ago but didn’t skip a beat. Bethea proved to be a nice signing in free agency as he finished with a team-best five interceptions, and Baker was a great second-round find in the draft.NIKE NFL Ford was a key special teams player as a rookie and hopes to find an increased role in 2018. Miller could again battle for a roster spot.
The big question at this position centers on Mathieu. NFL Sunglasses He said last week that the Cardinals asked him to take a pay cut,Oakland Raiders Jersey and it is unclear whether he is willing to do so. A resolution will need to come by Wednesday, when a chunk of money in Mathieu’s contract becomes guaranteed.
“I think, obviously, in the next week or so we’ll have to make a decision,” Mathieu said on Saturday. “We’ll all know exactly what’s going on.” (UPDATE: Mathieu was released on Wednesday.)
Branch, the lone safety scheduled to hit free agency, played extremely well for nine games but tore his ACL against the Seahawks. Green Bay Packers Jersey Branch proved in 2017 he could still perform at a high level, but has only played in 36 games the past five years and will be 32 years old next season.
The Cardinals relied heavily on three safeties Philadelphia Eagles Jersey the past several years and defensive backs coach David Merritt said that will likely be the case again in 2018. The group as currently constructed is one of the most talented positions on the team.
