Nutrajet

Nutrajet EP

Disarraygun

When the opening chords for “Alternative Nation” let up and you hear echoes of Cheap Trick live at Buddokan in those power chops, you know it’s time to get up. Nutrajet’s own detonation of guitar and drums will make you think this is a full-blown combo, but no, it’s just Greg Reinel on the strings and Pamela Suzanne Dozier on the skins, playing with more force and guts than the Broncos’ defensive lineup. “Love to Explode” sums it up pretty neatly, both in title and melody, a catchy number that provides plenty of inexorable power despite its slower tempo. There’s only six songs on this EP – it’s over too soon, but I would think too much of this would put you on life support. Disarraygun, 509 Sunrise Dr., Orlando, FL 32803
