Music | Local CD Revue: Exigent Records’ Top Dead Celebrity, Accidente, Diesto

By Ryan Bradford
POSTED // Mar 12,2008 - Top Dead Celebrity S/T  Accidente Exotic Payday Diesto Isle of Marauder Like Edward Norton in Fight Club, I’ve never been in a fight. However, I assume getting punched in the face is pretty similar to listening to these three albums from...

Local CD Revue | Enee One, Shades of Gray, Spitsofrantic

By Ryan Bradford
POSTED // Mar 5,2008 - Enee One Say Goodnight What would you do if you got KRS-One to guest star on your album? Chances are, most of us would blow it by letting fanboy admiration get in the way of producing a quality track. Enee One doesn’t blow it. On “Radio...

Music | CD Revue: Bob Mould, Lightspeed Champion

By Ryan Bradford
POSTED // Feb 20,2008 - Bob Mould District Line Lightspeed Champion Falling Off the Lavender Bridge It’s easy to compare the death of a mid-level indie band with proverbial trees that fall, perhaps silently, in the woods: If no one is there (or cares), does the breakup...

Music | Local CD Revue: Aye Aye, LionFish, The Upstarts

By Ryan Bradford
POSTED // Feb 13,2008 - Aye Aye Saint Delay and the Golden Dog It’s hard to describe the music on Saint Delay without making it sound tedious: It’s countryish, bluesy and slow—the beats sound like they were recorded through molasses. However, Aye Aye has...

Music | CD Revue: Chris Walla, The Helio Sequence

By Ryan Bradford
POSTED // Jan 23,2008 - Chris Walla Field Manual I hate to say it: Chris Walla is guilty by association. As the guitarist/producer for Death Cab for Cutie, Walla has co-opted the band’s signature pop for his solo outing, which isn’t altogether bad. After two embarrassingly...

Music | Local CD Revue: Lapsed & Nonnon, Loom, The Lionelle

By Ryan Bradford
POSTED // Jan 16,2008 - Lapsed & Nonnon The Death of Convenience About five tracks into Convenience, the local duo includes a talking skit satirizing the kind of material Eminem litters throughout his albums. Without giving too much away, it relies on the notion that L&N’s...

Music | Beat-Boxed In: Salt Lake City’s Deadbeats stay relevant under the radar

By Ryan Bradford
POSTED // Jan 9,2008 - To say that Lance Saunders is a busy guy is an understatement. “There are actually three of me,” he says, slyly aware of his uncompromising inertia. “It comes in really handy if I’m acting like an asshole one night—later,...

Music | Xmas CD Revue: Toby Keith, Fred Claus, Celine Dion, Green Day Tribute

By Ryan Bradford
POSTED // Dec 12,2007 - Author’s note: In order to give these albums a fair and unbiased critique, I drank one Red Bull for each record, hoping to achieve the kind of “holiday cheer” necessary to tolerate any sort of Christmas music. Various Artists A Dark...

Music | Local CD Revue: Will Sartain, Syqnys, Lord Mandrake, Jared Johnson & The Jackpines

By Ryan Bradford
POSTED // Dec 5,2007 - Will Sartain Bash Your Face In Future of the Ghost’s Sartain didn’t even let the paint dry on his band’s album before releasing this acoustic, solo project—a move that ultimately doesn’t work in Bash’s favor. Sartain’s...

2007 Gift Guide | Score With Music: Gain hipster cred by giving music Ryan Bradford says they’ll like

By Ryan Bradford
POSTED // Nov 20,2007 - We all know you have killer taste in music. But, while it might seem like a good idea to burn a copy of Radiohead’s In Rainbows as a gift, it’s not an idea all will appreciate. Often, those lacking similar musical “prowess” prefer...
