Let’s round ’em up.
Remo Drive – Natural, Everyday Degradation
The summer-kissed melodies of Ash mixed with early Panic! At The Disco emo.
The Rhythm Method – How Would You Know I Was Lonely?
Ever wonder what it might have sounded like if Ian Dury had joined the Pet Shop Boys in the mid-80’s? Me neither — but it might have gone a little something like this…
Barnaby Bright – Barnaby Bright
Married duo is half electronic pop and half Americana.
Kirin J. Callinan – Return To Center
Callinan hails from Australia but recorded this collection of (mostly 80’s) covers in Los Angeles. In two weeks. In a garage.
[I like The Waterboys, but Callinan may own “The Whole Of The Moon” now.]
After a few years of solo adventures, the Black Keys are back and ready to rock. Namaste.
