Us3 – Questions – Review

March 28, 2005

Nope, don’t get it. Trendy UK soulfunkelectro fizzle. I don’t know, nor have I ever met, anyone who’d think this doesn’t suck.

Track Record – Review

March 28, 2005

New Drive-Thru, er, Rushmore Records band. No better, no worse than any of their other bands, who all sound exactly the same, but some are cuter than others.

Tides – Resurface – Review

March 28, 2005

Tides are from upstate New York, and man, they just drone on and on. I’m a fan of a few Neurot bands, Pelican, and Jucifer, but I’m no expert.

The Spring Collection – Review

March 28, 2005

A nice palette cleaner. Chiming guitars, ’70s power pop. Not a bad song here, perhaps also nothing to sing in the shower either, but a consistently good CD.

Myon – Ghost in Paradise – Review

March 28, 2005

Around for a decade, this is their second effort (had a name change in there), first was released by Noise. This is too mid-tempo warbling prog metal for me.

Kaura – Review

March 28, 2005

A lot of bands like A Perfect Circle, but few get past mere imitation. These guys get WHY that band is so special.

Jim Boggia – Safe in Sound – Review

March 28, 2005

Philadelphia singer/songwriter with guest appearances by Aimee Mann, Jill Sobule, Emitt Rhodes, and Wayne Kramer. Most of it is wanna-be top 40 airy rock.

E3 – Review

March 28, 2005

This is so quietly recorded, it’d be easy to miss “hey, this is the kinda punk no one plays anymore.” Sound like they’d be fun live (think they’re from Vegas).

Debris Inc – Review

March 28, 2005

Stoner doom too stoned to try very hard or produce very well. Respected musicians from St. Vitus, Trouble, Eyehategod/Superjoint/Crowbar, Goatsnake/Obsessed.
