The Tribute Concerts (Bear Family Records). Review by James Mann.
Green Day welcome West Palm Beach, and Jen Cray, to paradise.
The Bleached Slang Tour (Beach Slang + Bleached) brings Orlando to its knees and causes hearts, like Jen Cray’s, to swoon.
The first ever Orlando Calling Festival set up camp on a picture-perfect Central Florida fall day. Jen Cray parked it on the lawn amid tens of thousands of music fans and absorbed.
The inaugural, and hopefully annual, Orlando Calling Festival brings BIG acts to Central Florida for a major two-day music festival November 12-13.
Let Me Come Home (4AD). Review by Jeff Schweers.
In The Dark (ATO). Review by Joe Frietze.
30 Seconds to Mars gives Orlando fans what they want… even if it is a little too much ego with a little too little substance to back it up.
It takes some serious skills to make moody, indie rock sound new and fresh, but Low Vs. Diamond does just that. Jen Cray was wooed by their swagger and elegance at a recent Orlando date.
Receivers (Jagjaguwar). Review by Aaron Shaul.
Unicycle Loves You (Highwheel). Review by Chris Catania.
Jen Cray finds herself at a Duran Duran concert in 2008, and missing the AquaNet smell of a zillion emotional teenaged girls.
Maiden Voyage Plus (Artoffact). Review by Aaron Shaul.
The Hits of 1967 (Time Life). Review by James Mann.
Something Quite Peculiar (Science). Review by Jen Cray.
A Weekend In The City (Vice). Review by Jen Cray.
Liars (Benevolent). Review by Jen Cray.
Monument to the Masses (Virgin). Review by Jen Cray.
For a band that is less than two years old, the guys of A Paper Tiger know what they’re doing when it comes to music– and they’re doing it extremely well. Brittany Sturges catches up with the band over a cup of coffee and some food.
Athens, GA indie rockers Now Its Overhead now call two members of Orlando’s Summerbirds In The Cellar bandmates. Their recent homecoming show, with Summerbirds opening up, was an event Jen Cray could not miss.
Always Never Again (Touch & Go). Review by Aaron Shaul.
