Rock of Asia: Asian Anthology

Rock of Asia: Asian Anthology

Commemorating the 10th anniversary of the band’s first release, we get thrown right into the wild mix with opener “Lal Dhagna,” built around a tribal beat, featuring high flute-like sounds and a desperate vocal attack.

Crossroad Saints: A Song Of Your Own

Crossroad Saints: A Song Of Your Own

A Song of Your Own is a robust collection of songs, with a good variety of styles in the mix yet all retaining the stamp of what Crossroad Saints are at their core.

THE SEX FILES: Speaking to Mr. Hands about Adult Gaming and “Naughty List News”

THE SEX FILES: Speaking to Mr. Hands about Adult Gaming and “Naughty List News”

There are games, and then there are games. Mr. Hands (no, not his real name) is a self-proclaimed 32-year-old “newsletter enthusiast,” happily married to a lovely woman, and he just happens to write about smutty video games as a hobby. If you flick your cursor over to Naughty List News (substack.com), you will see what he writes about. 

Nikki Wozzo & The Bad Whiskey: Bad Whiskey

Nikki Wozzo & The Bad Whiskey: Bad Whiskey

“Lovers Song” is a bit slower and flange-y loose (again, in a good way) with Mike Mallais’ rimshots filling the big space; Wozzo bites his lyric for the broken-hearted over. While “Ain’t She Something,” with its single-string guitar lead, Mallais’ in-the-pocket playing, and some quite effective, yet subtle, Ray Miller backing vocals, is the first really sparkling gem early on from this ‘bad whiskey’ bottle. This one is, dare I say it, even sing-able.

Tenuous Threads: Mettle

Tenuous Threads: Mettle

A roiling picked electric and warbling vocal sweeps us into the sway shunk of opener, “Abduction.” There’s a subtle layering of keys, sliding bass, and heavy guitar riffing that creates a full brew for this infectious little beginning tune.

The Buying and Selling Of Adult Websites: Talking To Bruce Friedman of Adult Site Broker

The Buying and Selling Of Adult Websites: Talking To Bruce Friedman of Adult Site Broker

I spoke to Bruce Friedman, CEO of Adult Site Broker. His company was established in 2011 to help buyers and sellers of adult websites, affiliate programs, and entire companies with effortless transactions of posting, buying, and selling adult websites. For me personally, as well as for what I usually offer in THE SEX FILES, it’s great to get a look-see into the business side of the adult industry and have a good jaw about what Bruce is into presentl

High Chair: Hey Mountain Hey

High Chair: Hey Mountain Hey

We get some of the most straight-ahead (as straight ahead as these guys are going to get) guitar riffing with a splashy beat on “The Door Of The Law,” then on the last tune, “The Pollen Path,” we are treated to an almost all-instrumental, mining almost an Allman Brother’s-vibe with some positive chanting to end the tune and this wonderful album.

Nancy Wenstrom: Inside Story

Nancy Wenstrom: Inside Story

We get a sweet AOR love song with “Lucky Me, Lucky You,” an almost 50’s jazz standard of a tune; unexpected though it is, I just loved it. Billy Truitt’s accordion leads the soundscape of “Arms to Hold You,” with Wenstrom warbling through the sweet lyric and, as always, playing a superb guitar and singing harmony and lead.

9 Horses: Omegah

9 Horses: Omegah

Scary roiling backing keys and slicing wild singular notes get us into the blurping and popping opening groove of first song and title track “Omegah,” from the new 8-song album from 9 Horses. A layered sweet string respite takes us from all the cutting and braying then, as things slow down to a change in mood, and later things get almost Kansas-like (the band not the state) as drums come in and we are sailing once again, but this time with more purpose and melody to the end of the tune.
