CAIRO GANG - GOES MISSING

Emmett Kelly has exhibited an encompassing approach to music which lends flexibility to The Cairo Gang's song-style. He's a harmony singer of supreme skill, bringing not only a sweet and supple voice, but also a tremendous sympathy to the singing of it. The impulse to dig ... read more »

 

CAIRO GANG - TINY REBELS

Driven by two 12-string guitars, drums, bass and lots of vocals, the sound of this record is what distinguishes it the most from previous works by Cairo Gang. Always in the red and fighting for space, the layers are deeply compressed and pulsating, creating an un-ease that ... read more »

 

CAIRO GANG - UNTOUCHABLE

THE CAIRO GANG's 'Untouchable' is a refreshing dip in the pools of classic youth-pop, with songs of star-crossed breakthroughs and guitars cross-talking with a bejeweled ennui and a sly sting that appeals to a higher order.

Suffused with an atmosphere of slow-simmering tension, this debut-album by the Bay Area-based solo-musician ((the ex-frontman of noise-pop combo Pure Bliss)) traffics in understated grooves reminiscent of latter-era Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds, with Frank Ene's rich voice ... read more »

 

COOL GHOULS - COOL GHOULS

An interesting outfit from SF, with the name taken from George Clinton's Funkadelic-era pre-show banter. Musically however they remind of '60s groups s.a. The Troggs, Monks and Sir Douglas Quintet. Three part harmionies, unexpected chord progressions and a garage-rock ... read more »

 

CHILDRESS, JOSEPH - THE REBIRTHS

Fans of haunted troubadours in the vein of Jason Molina, Jackson C. Frank, Townes Van Zandt and various early lo-fi pioneers will find much to enjoy in Joseph's music, but even more striking will be Joseph's refreshingly original command of song. This presentation of 'The ... read more »

 

LOVEBIRDS - FILLED WITH HATE

LOVEBIRDS - FILLED WITH HATE

Indie-jangle outfit The Lovebirds wears a cloak of many colours. The guitars weave together leads, hooks and riffs arranged like an American cheese platter. The rhythm section takes the cheese and deftly makes a deli sandwich, playing with smarts and panache. Finger-licking ... read more »
