Meg Hentges – Afterlaugh – Review

July 1, 1995

Meg Hentges’ latest solo album further explores the rockin’ yet understated side of 2 Nice Girls’ sound, while Ms. Phillips ventures further “out there.”

Medicine – Her Highness – Review

July 1, 1995

There is nothing solid for the listener to sink his or her teeth into, only intricate, ghostlike fibers of noise that always remain just out of reach.

Dream Kitchen – Review

July 1, 1995

An enjoyable jaunt through non-aggressive rock. Like a margarita in a hammock between palm trees at sunset.

Dambuilders – Ruby Red – Review

July 1, 1995

Ruby Red is another engaging disc that will succeed in the dorms, while “Special Ed” and “Drive-By Kiss” are sure to court the radio airwaves.

Zen Lunatic – Review

July 1, 1995

Generic power pop, straight from the heart of Boston. Matthew Sweet-ish with catchy hooks and no aftertaste.

Carbon 14 – Down – Review

July 1, 1995

Of the few bands I’ve heard from Portland, all seem to be thoughtful, introspective, and interested in making heartfelt music.

Twiitch – Review

July 1, 1995

Insipid indie pop, but with a good surf “Spy Hunter” riff on the first song.

Ben Folds Five – Review

July 1, 1995

Imagine Squeeze with a definite punk edge. Sweeping energy, memorable songs, and great lyrics make this album a total, absolute must get.

The Shoes – Fret Buzz – Review

July 1, 1995

This album doesn’t even deserve a good insult. The guitars were mixed well. The record’s about as exciting and eventful as a trip to the refrigerator.
