    The Lacking Details 4

    This week’s compendium of five carefully selected albums are all connected by a change encounter with Julius C. Lacking … maybe it was the tags, or perhaps the artwork, but the results are clear.

  • Tele Novella

    Tele Novella

    Merlyn Belle (Kill Rock Stars). Review by Julius C. Lacking.

  • Mixtape 138 :: Political Song

    Mixtape 138 :: Political Song

    Supremely independent for going on three decades, Superchunk’s incisive nervous energy is still one of the purest indie highs you can find.

  • Jenny Lewis

    Jenny Lewis

    Jenny Lewis never fails to make Orlando, and Jen Cray, feel like giddy little school kids… especially when she brings Speedy Ortiz along for the ride.

  • Jenny Lewis

    Jenny Lewis

    Jenny Lewis overcomes being the opening band, and sound and lighting issues, to overwhelm an Orlando audience, as Jen Cray knew she would.

  • Tegan and Sara

    Tegan and Sara

    Tegan and Sara throw the seating chart out the window, liberating a sold-out crowd at the Tampa Theatre right out of their chairs.

  • Jenny Lewis

    Jenny Lewis

    Jenny Lewis drenches Orlando with her sweet and soulful country tinged folk music. Jen Cray is amongst the adoring, sold-out crowd.

  • Bonnaroo


    As music festivals spring up all over the country, Bonnaroo attempts to live up to its reputation as Rolling Stone Magazine’s “Best Festival.” Jen Cray fears that the heart has gone right out of it.

  • Rilo Kiley

    Rilo Kiley

    Eames Era

    While throngs of music lovers converged on Tampa’s Ybor City for the 25th edition of WMNF’s Tropical Heatwave, a little known band from Baton Rouge proved to be one of the highlights of the night. The Eames Era come to Tampa virtually unknown and left with a cadre of converts. Bob Pomeroy was one of them.
