For one thing, the guitars are a bit meatier. Lead singer Roach sounds remarkably like a teenage Joey Ramone growing up in the 90s. Seuss-meets-Halloween cover art by S.
I mean, he still is brilliant I guess, I just can't take that much Hayden. It's very brooding, very dark and quite beautiful. If you haven't heard him before, his acoustic stylings are worth your time. The trio plays indie rock that is at times reminiscent of early Pixies, with an emphasis on lo-fi melodies and strained vocals. Good stuff. Mostly comprised of unique keyboard implementation and jazz-oriented percussion and the occasional bit of guitar workInlantic conjures up tunes that are always beautiful, sometimes very emotional and always captivating.
This is one of those records that you never would have thought you'd like, but after a listen you're drawn into it and it won't let you go. The music seems to be lacking some spark. It starts off okay, but it doesn't go anywhere. If you are familiar with Jim O'Rourke by way of Sonic Youth, well, this contains no noise experiments. What you get is an expansion of his abilities in the realm of soft music and singing.
He's able, but it's not very exciting to listen to unless you're into soft jazz. This double LP on clear blue vinyl is their latest album in CD form on Capitol-- support the indie label, buy the vinyl.
The harmonies are sincere, solid and sharp. They'll catch your ear and make your heart dance. Vocally, Jimmy is a wonderful singer with lyrics that are smart and thoughtful. JEW combines simple, sweet sounds with complex intensity like no other band.
I absolutely love this band. They sound like Garbage and G vs. B wrapped into one f'ing awesome ball. Tara Slone's voice is amazing and the band is wicked-good. This CD is a little mellower than their last but it's worth every penny. Their sound is somewhere between metal and hard rock. No purring on this album.
I dig it. The songs are tight and the production is good; it just sounds like you've heard these songs before somewhere. Must be something in the water out west. Here is a disc that will make you think you're an extra on the old Batman show.
Surf guitar and smooth beats set the tone for your very own beach party. This is cool stuff. Secret Name is more upbeat than some of their previous work, but still retains their distinctive less is more style. It's the perfect soundtrack for those sleepless evenings when you're lost in your own thoughts and don't really mind. Big, fucking mohawks and kilts and boots. This is punk as it is meant to be.
It is raw, it is fast, it is great. Catchy melodies infuse this pure punk extravaganza. I sang my sorry self to sleep last night with their tune Naked A. It is great. Man or Astroman? If Dick Dale were an alien with a computer and a Casio, he would fit right in. With that bias stated, I don't see much of the point of getting this disc if you have the chance to pick up records by the Small Faces or Otis Redding. But bias aside, there are some good power pop moments here.
Give it a listen. These guys loved what they did, and they did it well. After a few lineup changes, they are no longer an all girl band. Their melodic rock sound still packs a punk rock edge, while Denise Campanaro lets herself experiment with the vocals in a way we had not experienced before.
Punk rock show tunes - listen to it and your friends will think you have some culture. With their version of Evita, Madonna may have some competition to worry about. They sound a lot like Sunny Day but not as much crunch. Nor are they as guitar driven as SDRE but they have some strong emo-tendencies.
It didn't really tickle my fancy but it might yours. Great bass loops and driving beats. Moa- the namesakeartist- sings in an Eartha Kitt style that works.
It's nice to hear this, as the vocals and music serve one another to create a sonic experience greater than it's parts. I bought two more of their discs and I was unimpressed. Now, I'm impressed again. This is really good SKA-punk full of catchy tunes. They run the gamut of said styles yet F.Y.P* - Incomplete Crap (CD) it all fun.
Pick this disc up, because Mustard Plug show a maturity and versatility few ska bands have been able to grown into. Times of Grace is both emotionally dark and rhythmically diverse, both extreme and subtle. A good example of this duality is the track "Away," first sung almost at a whisper, backed by piano and rushing wind, until the guitars kick in and the screaming starts.
Big hair, spandex and mascara? Do you want to live that sound all over again? Here is the band to help you do it. Eight hard-rocking tunes that will teleport you back to the mid-eighties. This is good punk. Almost every song is about getting laid or groping some gal's dairy set-up. This is good, good music. This is a collection of songs influenced by the Beatles and Brian Wilson, among others, in a style lead singer Kevin Barnes calls "innocent songwriting.
His lyrics pull you in and keep you there. The rock and folk are apparent with the use of his guitar, the harmonica in some tracks dabbles with the blues.
Put it all together and you have a dynamite combination. But this time Pete has set aside the loudness and put out a great acoustic pop album. He threw in some horns, some piano Soft power pop at its best. To quote Howe: "If Portishead is the dark side of trip-hop, then we're the light side. Yes, it's still the same punk influenced ska that you enjoy, but this release sounds a bit more polished, more mature as mature as a ska band can be!
Pretty fast, and you can sing along with it. In fact, the first track, "Sing along with Potshot" urges you to do just that. The story involves two friends and it breaks down like this: Tariq wants to be a rapper; he's got an audition with the Wu-Tang Clan but doesn't have enough money to get his demo finished; True is a hustler and gives Tariq an introduction to crime to make the money, but things don't go as planned.
In the end evil conquers all. It's a compilation of rare, hard to find, live, old recordings, and previously unreleased material.

Thrust forward, backwards F.Y.P* - Incomplete Crap (CD) new fits of rage, audibly displayed through crunching guitars, ferocious drums, deep, F.Y.P* - Incomplete Crap (CD) bass and screamed vocals. The tempo-breaks instantly create a rhythm, ever changing, shifting, driving.
