Lochness Monster: Working for a Future

Lochness Monster: Working for a Future

I’d advise getting your hands on Lochness Monster’s Working for a Future.

Eric Anders and Mark O’Bitz: Variant Blues: Music In The Time Of Coronavirus: Songs 21-30

Eric Anders and Mark O’Bitz: Variant Blues: Music In The Time Of Coronavirus: Songs 21-30

Again, Eric Anders and Mark O’Bitz are great players-songwriters-musicians; no doubt about it, I just feel with Variant Blues they may have gone to the same well too many times.

Ajay Mathur: Talking Loud

Ajay Mathur: Talking Loud

The sly slinky “Common Mistake” shows off Mathur’s more wry side; it’s a good jazzy rockin’ tune (I love the “yodee yoyos”), “Comedian” sounds cool but might be a little too hung up on how odd it sounds, although Toni Nesler’s and Stevie Blackie’s insane sounding strings are wicked.

The Color of Cyan: Agape    

The Color of Cyan: Agape   

The original iteration of The Color of Cyan was formed at the beginning of the century in San Juan, Puerto Rico. Agape, recorded between Puerto Rico, Chicago, California, and Mexico City, is the quartet’s first full-length album.

THE SEX FILES: An Interview with Madam Director/Lola-PART 1

The fetching, seriously sexy, dangerously adept domina/filmmaker based in NYC almost exclusively now just films the scenes of her art and work, often alongside her sub “Peaches.”

Swansgate: Becoming Someone

Swansgate: Becoming Someone

The band; Draughn, Michael McKinney guitarist and keyboardist, Gabe McKinney on bass, and drummer Mike Kaloudis on the tunes where Michael Mc isn’t playing drums, do have a cool style of putting these concoctions together

Aura Blaze: Open-Mindedness

Aura Blaze: Open-Mindedness

How can you not love an EP this audacious, a musician having this much fun, and a sound delivered up to make you smile?

Spencer Elliot: SE3

Spencer Elliot: SE3

Although most of these eleven groove well for me, when Sydnor gets popping on “4_20,” I have to say the trio had me more than ever (and they had me throughout the six before). This one just gives rise to all the players here on top of their kinetic game, again with Sydnor’s bass providing the glue.

Leadbetter Band: Howl

Leadbetter Band: Howl

Pearsall’s bass is as front and center as it ever gets on any of these eleven, pumping the ender “The Hammer,” along with Bernal snapping his snare. Again, Leadbetter gives it his best here, and the band manages another singable chorus, heavy verses, and solid drive
