Sincerely, Severely (Orange Records). Review by Jeff Schweers.
Brand New and Thrice play the first of a pair of sold-out Orlando dates.
Precocious Dresden Dolls singer Amanda Palmer entertained faithful fans in St. Petersburg with a solo show that was as bewitching as it was uneven, not that Bob Pomeroy, or anyone else attending, seemed to mind.
On the historic day that America elects its first African-American president, an eloquent messenger for “change,” Q-Tip releases The Renaissance. Coincidence? John-Thomas Crockett sits down with “The Abstract” prior to the outcome to discuss The Renaissance, Obama, and how he feels about Q-Tip vs. Lil Wayne.
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.
Jen Cray is thoroughly rocked by a triple bill of Rise Against, Thrice, and Alkaline Trio. All killer, no filler? The point can be argued…
Which Way Is Mine (Self-released). Review by Kyrby Raine.
After an unusual Orlando set, Portugal. The Man‘s talented John Baldwin Gourley stepped outside for a chat with Jen Cray.
With material co-credited to Paul McCartney, Jean-Philip Grobler‘s Kites has caught the attention of music industry luminaries. However, he’s intent to make music his way, in his own time, resulting in his current EP You and I in the Kaleidoscope. Three years to make an EP? Grobler talks about that misconception, and promises his next shot of arena rock won’t take so long, but warns it might include a full orchestra in St. Paul’s Cathedral. S D Green tries to harmonize with the former South African choirboy.
You and I in the Kaleidoscope (Unsigned). Review by S D Green.
