Big Whoop. Review by Julius C. Lacking.
The Traveler (ATO Records). Review by Joe Frietze.
They could go from the greatest band you ever saw to an out of control drunken mess, all in the same song. Color Me Obsessed pays tribute to last great American band, The Replacements. You can color James Mann obsessed!
The Harrow & the Harvest (Acony Records). Review by Sean Slone.
Feast of the Hunters’ Moon (Sugar Hill). Review by Tim Wardyn.
Dark Was the Night (Red Hot Organization). Review by Tim Wardyn.
The Hazards of Love (Capitol). Review by Matt Parish.
Movie Theatre Haiku (A Masque of Backwards Ballads, a Picturesque Burlesque) (Cutthroat Pop). Review by Tim Wardyn.
Colin Meloy Sings Live! (Kill Rock Stars). Review by Aaron Shaul.
Though this festival built its reputation as a lovefest for jambands and hippies, Bonnaroo in 2007 opened its arms up to more modern rock bands, bringing in a whole new audience. One new convert was Jen Cray, whose weekend in the mountains of Tennessee is not one she’s soon to forget.
Compass Rose Bouquet (Quack Media). Review by Jen Cray.
Until the Sadness is Gone (Friendly Fire). Review by Aaron Shaul.
When epic indie rock that’s heavy with literary allusions, like what The Decemberists create, can sell out a large venue like the Hard Rock Live it gives Jen Cray hope for the state of music.
Maria Taylor brought her dreamy indie pop to Orlando and the fans came out. Jen Cray was one of the hundred or so who came out for a mid-week, late night show.
Hissing Fauna, Are You The Destroyer? (Polyvinyl). Review by Jen Cray.
The Absent and the Distant (Caldo Verde). Review by Aaron Shaul.
The Crane Wife (Capitol). Review by Jen Cray.
A featured profile in both the local weekly and in the Orlando Sentinel newspaper helped to pack The Social for The Oaks‘ first ever headlining gig. Jen Cray was amongst the crowd to lend her support.
Volume 3 (Acuarela). Review by Aaron Shaul.
WW1 (Merge). Review by Aaron Shaul.
Misadventures in Radiology (Sonic Boom). Review by Aaron Shaul.
