EVACUATE CHICAGO – Veracity

EVACUATE CHICAGO – Veracity

Evacuate Chicago - "Veracity." Rock Ridge Music, 2010. "Evacuate Chicago" consists of three members of Psychostick: Rob "Rawrb" Kersey, Alex "Shmalex" Preiss, and Joshua "Joshy" Key. This side project's debut album "Veracity" does not resemble the Humor-Core you have grown to love from Psychostick; it's a much more  but a more in-your-face [...]

THE LEN PRICE 3 – Pictures

THE LEN PRICE 3 – Pictures

The Len Price 3 - "Pictures." Wicked Cool Records, 2010. The Len Price 3, one of the last internationally recognized bands of the garage power-pop genre, evokes much nostalgia with their latest release, "Pictures." This album invokes the likes of the "Banana Splits, "The Monkees" TV shows, "The Speedies" and "The Beatles."  This album has the [...]

EELS – End Times

EELS – End Times

Eels - "End Times."  Vagrant Records,  2010. Unveiled today we have the eighth record from the Eels,  titled "End Times" . This self produced recording contains more of the unique melancholy genius of Mark Oliver Everett, whose detachment and isolation seems to grow with each release. This record deals with such universally complicated [...]

PYGMY LUSH/TURBOSLUT – Split LP

PYGMY LUSH/TURBOSLUT – Split LP

Pygmy Lush/Turboslut – "Split LP." Exotic Fever, 2009. It's a question worth considering: must a great band have ambition? Can music made for no particular audience be important, even while it languishes in obscurity? This is a recording by two bands who had (Turboslut) and have (Pygmy Lush) resigned themselves to the fact that their music [...]

BLUE KING BROWN – Stand Up

BLUE KING BROWN – Stand Up

Blue King Brown  -  "Stand Up." Roots Level Records, 2006. Every now and then, a band catches your ear with something totally fresh and inventive. This is the case with Blue King Brown, who arouses musical excitement and attentiveness from listeners. Somewhere between Bob Marley and Ozomotli exists this Australian based-group, which [...]

OINGO BOINGO – Insanity

OINGO BOINGO – Insanity

Oingo Boingo - "Insanity" Oingo Boingo's farewell performance of "Insanity" at the Universal Amphitheater in 1995, juxtaposed against their performance on The Gong Show almost 20 years earlier in 1976, vividly illustrates the band's transformation over time. While the band name  "Oingo Boingo" is familiar to most, and their longer and more [...]

MCQUEEN – Break The Silence

MCQUEEN – Break The Silence

McQueen  -  "Break The Silence." Demolition Records, 2007. Where is McQueen? Gritty. Raw. Delicious. This English all-female rock/punk band fronted by the charismatic Leah Duors has raised the bar for the world of female rock bands. Combining equal amounts of aggression, musicianship and melody, McQueen have forged their own unique, [...]

CHARLES MINGUS & LANGSTON HUGHES – Weary Blues

CHARLES MINGUS & LANGSTON HUGHES – Weary Blues

Charles Mingus & Langston Hughes – “Weary Blues.” Polygram Records, 1958. This is a great recording, and needless to say because of the brilliance and high regard of its collaborators, is an important and interesting American cultural artifact. Recorded in 1958, this album takes the groundbreaking 1926 work of Langston Hughes' Weary [...]

KICKING DAISIES – Kicking Daisies

KICKING DAISIES – Kicking Daisies

Kicking Daisies - "Kicking Daisies". Go Entertainment, LLC (January 26, 2010). "100% Suck Free" While "tween" bands don't usually find their way under our radar, this debut CD by the Kicking Daisies is something different than your usual "tween" power pop-rock. Some old rock-and-roll spirits seem deeply rooted in each young member. This very [...]
