Music Review – batteryboy – Up For Air

Review By Kristine Volovsek

batteryboy recently finished their forthcoming Up for Air album.  Stories of love being lost and found (or at least the hope of finding it again), the songs on this emotionally-driven indie folk rock album have been brewing in their souls since before batteryboy became a trio.  The tracks on Up for Air generally start gentle, build you up with high energy and lyrics straight from the heart, and then gracefully set you back down while still delivering those little-skin-tingles at times.  Cobey Rouse (vocals, guitar, drums), Shannon Frid (vocals, violin), and Eric Carranza (keys, guitar) completely complement one another’s sounds as batteryboy.

Review – Fathom Lane – Down By Half

FathomLane_DownByHalf

By Becca Martin

Awkward. That is what I feel after listening to the latest LP release by Fathom Lane. I own that emotion as I experienced the band live recently and was not wowed. However, I really like what the bare bones, vintage if you will, recording to tape technique accomplished in the studio. This old school way of recording evokes an earlier but very resonant and brooding sound. Continue reading

My wife is going to this tonight, as is the guy I played Star Wars action figures and Atari with when I was a kid, local radio guy – Brian Oake. I am not much of a go out and dance guy and nostalgia is for suckers. I am sure tons of people will have lots of fun at this event. Just not this guy. Jake Rudh is a stand up guy, he played a Rift party back in the day before he was super famous.

Transmission’s 12 year party.

Review – Tom Selleck’s Moustache – Heartbreak 101

12-05275_4p_Wallet_1545_DLnodie

Review By Dan Tennyson

There are just certain albums you’re sent or you come across that elicit a pure feeling in your mind. “This was made to make me feel a certain way” In this case, we have the ridiculously peppy “Heartbreak 101” via Tom Selleck’s Moustache. Now now, before you accuse the writer here of hyperbolic hypocrisy. “How can an album possibly be peppy with the title Heartbreak 101?” And I’d retort with a quick, “I have no idea,” but Tom Selleck’s Moustache has managed quite well.
