#Reviews #Rock Neil Young

Alternate view on a classic track'Cortez the Killer' is a song by Neil Young from his 1975 album, "Zuma". It was recorded with Young's band Crazy Horse.

'Cortez the Killer' is about Hernan Cortés, one of the infamous ‘conquistadores’ who caused the fall of the Aztec Empire and brought large portions of what is now mainland Mexico under the rule of the King of Castile in the early 16th century. Cortés was part of the generation of Spanish colonizers who began the first phase of the Spanish colonization of the Americas.

Album release"Pardon" is the second release by Guy Mapoko. The 14 tracks on this album are an amalgamation of his West-African roots and the music of his second home, Canada.

Self-dubbed as ROCKAFRIKA, Guy explains his music as "Rock and Blues marinated in an African sauce, driven by percussion instruments such as water calabash, djembe, congas, cajun and talking drums; delivered in my mother tongue as well as in English and French. In other words, it is rock and blues with colors and flavors from Africa."

This eclectic indie album from All This Huxley shows off the band's considerable talent for pairing their erudite, dystopian lyrics with majestic guitars and insistent riffs, drawing inspiration from the likes of Modest Mouse, Tom Waits, Warren Zevon, The Districts, and old Wilco.
