Ice Age (Riding Easy Records). Review by Carl F. Gauze.
No need to worry about offending delicate sensibilities with this playlist. We’re not talking about profanity, so just take the title at face value.
Betrayal of Hearts (Sovereign States). Review by Matthew Moyer.
Interpol brought School of Seven Bells along with them for a semi-annual date with their loyal Orlando fans — fans like Jen Cray.
Interpol have lost their enigmatic bass player, but not their ability to bring the cool to even the hottest summer night. Jen Cray lets loose with the coolest cats in Orlando.
In This Light And On This Evening (Kitchenware Records). Review by Tim Wardyn.
Love Comes Close (Matador). Review by Kiran Aditham.
Julian Plenti is…Skyscraper (Matador). Review by Kiran Aditham.
Here Anonymous (Dangerbird). Review by Jen Cray.
First-time author and rock-concert veteran Steve Weinberger has written perhaps the funniest overview of the mosh-pit population ever. Like a mad scientist, Weinberger categorizes and analyzes every species of concertgoer in No Air Guitar Allowed, painting them with deft satirical strokes and a surprisingly empathetic eye. Ink 19 and Weinberger discuss how he spent years of his life illustrating the differences between KISS and indie-rock fans.
Down On Pacific (Reynolds Recording Co.). Review by Jen Cray.
The Street Lights Have Been Turned Down (New Granada). Review by Aaron Shaul.
Volume 6 (Planetary Group LLC). Review by Tim Wardyn.
Editors remind Orlando audiences that it was the UK that birthed their brand of darkly deep indie rock. Jen Cray couldn’t help but wonder if they were ripping off Joy Division, or Interpol’s interpretation of Joy Division.
In the Marshes (Words on Music). Review by Aaron Shaul.
Interpol may not be the most exciting live band on the planet, but Jen Cray is hooked on their music deeply enough to keep going back for more.
Our Love to Admire (Capitol). Review by Jen Cray.
She Wants Revenge (Geffen/Flawless Records). Review by Matthew Moyer.
New York’s Night Kills The Day draw influence from bands like Depeche Mode, the Cure and Pink Floyd. Their debut full length release, The Study of Man… And the Developed Shadow, is set for a March 2007 release on Score Records. Jen Cray spoke with bassist Timothy Falzone about his band that appears to be sitting on the doorstep of success.
They Think They Are The Robocop Kraus (Epitaph). Review by Aaron Shaul.
Ever heard of Aberdeen City or The Blue Van? Neither had Jen Cray, but if her predictions are correct, you soon will.
