• Coldplay

    Coldplay

    Ink 19‘s Jen Cray trades her low expectations for staunch admiration when she experiences the charm of Coldplay firsthand. Almost as good as U2?

  • Peter Bradley Adams

    Peter Bradley Adams

    Leavetaking (Sarathan). Review by Andrew Ellis.

    Seventh Tree (Mute Records). Review by Matthew Moyer.

  • The Kooks

    The Kooks

    At the Kooks’ Chicago tour stop, Chris Catania sees that there may indeed be something wrong with a lil’ (too much) bump n’ grind.

  • Greg Laswell

    Greg Laswell

    How the Day Sounds (Vanguard Records). Review by Tim Wardyn.

  • Editors

    Editors

    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.

    Victorious (Nettwerk). Review by Aaron Shaul.

    The Lift

    It Is What It Is (Little Red Records). Review by Andrew Ellis.

  • Arctic Monkeys

    Arctic Monkeys

    A large percentage of America may not know it yet, but the Arctic Monkeys have already conquered their native England and are setting their sights on our shores. Jen Cray was not surprised that the band’s Orlando date was a complete sell out.

  • Tiger Lou

    Tiger Lou

    Until I’m There/Days Will Pass 7″ (It’s a Trap!). Review by Aaron Shaul.

  • Snow Patrol

    Snow Patrol

    The Snow Patrol tour was as much about opening acts Ok Go and Silversun Pickups as it was about the Irish headliners. Jen Cray was among those lucky enough to score a ticket to the sold-out event.

  • Dear And The Headlights

    Dear And The Headlights

    Small Steps, Heavy Hooves (Equal Vision). Review by Jen Cray.
