Our Night Out (Burning Heart Records). Review by Carl F. Gauze.
Jet‘s inspired blending of garage and classic rock shouldn’t work, but it does, even six years after plowing into America’s consciousness.
Kings of Leon are well on their way to dominating the rock world here in their own country. Jen Cray caught their subtle, but satisfying, show in Orlando recently.
Here Anonymous (Dangerbird). Review by Jen Cray.
Modest Mouse are playing bigger and bigger gigs these days. Their recent sold out show at Orlando’s House of Blues is an example. S D Green questions their modesty in light of all this popularity and new personnel.
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.
Como Te Llama? (Black Seal). Review by Jen Cray.
Rooney found a whole new audience after opening up for The Jonas Brothers on their sold-out arena tour last year. Jen Cray found herself surrounded by pre-teen girls at the band’s recent Orlando gig.
When the recently reunited Swervedriver teleported their shoegazey goodness to the Paradise in Boston, Addam Donnelly was there with his space boots and measurement devices to record the waveforms.
Film Soundtrack (Commotion/KOCH). Review by Jen Cray.
Underhanded Romance (Eenie Meenie). Review by Jen Cray.
In a celebration of all things shiny and happy, Erasure brought their circus of glitter to Orlando’s Hard Rock Live, and Jen Cray was there for the party.
A Lesson In Crime EP (Paper Bag). Review by Jen Cray.
Ode To Ochrasy (Mute). Review by Jen Cray.
Cold War Kids, riding a tsunami swell of buzz off of their debut album Robbers & Cowards, was a sure-to-sell-out event (and it did) that no self respecting music fan in Orlando- esspecially Jen Cray– would have been absent from.
Yours To Keep (New Line). Review by Jen Cray.
A Weekend In The City (Vice). Review by Jen Cray.
Straight from a music school in Brighton to the top of the charts in England, The Kooks are the United Kingdom’s answer to The Strokes. Jen Cray spoke with their charming frontman Luke Pritchard about making it in the States.
