Music | CD Revue: Hold Steady, Dennis Wilson, Kaskade

By Ryan Bradford
POSTED // Jun 18,2008 - Hold Steady Stay Positive It’s hard to defend The Hold Steady, it really is. Detractors aren’t wrong when complaining about Craig Finn’s sing-speak vocals, and their standard bar-rock sound is nothing to write home about. That’s...

Music | Local CD Revue: Ben Johnson, Zion Tribe, Ron Woolf

By Ryan Bradford
POSTED // Jun 4,2008 - Ben Johnson Make it Bloom If Let’s Become Actors keeps spawning impressive solo releases, someone may have to start slapping them with antimonopoly suits. While Michael Gross’ Tales From a Country Home explored darker material, LBA bassist/guitarist/jack-of-all-trades...

By Ryan Bradford
POSTED // Apr 16,2008 - Goggle Tan Bikini Lines Farmer Tan Sunburn Rope or Bullets Undisputed Rope or Bullets’ two-song, debut EP has more frantic energy than most full lengths ever fully realize. The title track rushes the album out of the gates by layering...

Music | CD Revue: Man Man, Jim Noir, Tokyo Police Club

By Ryan Bradford
POSTED // Apr 9,2008 - Man Man Rabbit Habits Rabbit Habits could be the most annoying album you’ll hear all year. Or the most delightfully unique—it really depends on your stance regarding “Viking-vaudeville, manic Gypsy jazz” music. It wouldn’t...

CD Revue

Music: New Young Pony Club, Golden Dogs, That 1 Guy

By Ryan Bradford
POSTED // Aug 22,2007 - New Young Pony Club Fantastic Playroom Just when you thought that the current reincarnation of dance-punk was going the way of the buffalo (or ska), along comes the New Young Pony Club to simultaneously save the genre and prove that it’s no boys’...

Local CD Revue

Music: Atherton, Melodramus, Medicine Circus

By Jenny Poplar
POSTED // Aug 15,2007 - Atherton Skyline Motel Skyline Motel is an apt title for such a sparse, dreamy, smooth and distinctly Western album. These spare songs of love and roaming clearly originated in the desert, not east of the Mississippi in the green avenues of Nashville...
