CD Review Hamsa Lila - Live In Santa Cruz

Hamsa Lila

Live In Santa Cruz
Record Label: In The Pocket Records
Review by Greg Hatrumian
February 2009

This generous double cd, from San Fransico-based Hamsa Lila, can rightfully claim “state of the art” status for digital recordings in both sound reproduction and live mixing. The resultant clarity of the instruments and voices, with faint echoes of audience and hall ambiance, are nothing short of stunning.

CD Review The Pale Figures - Memphis and Chicago

Pale Figures

Memphis and Chicago
Record Label: Peacefist Records
Review by Jeff Muendel
January 2009

The Pale Figures are a rock band featuring the song writing of Chicago-based musician Aaron Lindstrom , formerly of Madison band Cup O’ Joe, and New York-based singer/songwriter Cory Larson. Over a period of two years, Larson and Lindstrom traded music through the mail, writing music with the style and sound of Memphis music in mind. Eventually, given the historical rivalry between Chicago’s Chess Records and Memphis’s Sun Studio, The Pale Figures thought it would be interesting to contrast the Memphis sound with the Chicago sound.

CD Review Pachyderm Recording Artists - So Large We Ran Out Of Room… Again

Pachyderm Recording Artists

So Large We Ran Out Of Room… Again
Record Label: Self Released
Review by Geert Driver
January 2009

Minneapolis area Pachyderm Studio is releasing thier second compilation CD. The disc highlights the past 12 months of work done in the infamous studio since the release of its first effort in 2007. Included are bands from the entire Midwest region. Northern Room from Milwaukee opens the disc with “BlackLight”, a mainstream pop single.

Minneapolis based New Rebelution hits the Reggae button with “Grateful Dread” a thought-provoked example of how unspent potential can affect us. Mankato Jam Grass experts Useful Jenkins kick it hard with “outlaw” and The Rez represents Duluth with the hippie jam “Salvador Dali”. The compilation gets heavy with Madison’s Droids Attack, “The Cardinal and the Pachyderm” named in connection with two great regional venues.

CD Review Kill Junior - Confusiotomy

Kill Junior

Confusiotomy
Record Label: Self Released
Review by Chris Fox
January 2009

These Madison locals have developed their sound into a heavy metal punk escapade that will keep you guessing through the entire album. With melodic vocals and overdriven guitars the sound gets progressively heavier until little antics like “Track Nine” throw you off and force you to really pay attention. The unique musings of vocalist Cory Kastner (10110, Angels Or Insects) with such a heavy accompaniment create a completely unique sound that will be remembered.

Static X

Cannibal Killers Live DVD/CD
Record Label: Warner Brothers
Review by Chris Fox
January 2009

STATIC-X turns up their intense electro-driven riffs with the release of their first DVD. The Cannibal Killers Tour proved to be one of the best for the band and it shows with the production of their entire set on film. Better live than any CD can do justice, STATIC-X has recreated the concert experience that will leave any metal fan wanting more.

CD Review Anna Laube - Pool All The Love * Pool All The Knowledge

Anna Laube

Pool All The Love * Pool All The Knowledge
Record Label: Self Released
Review by John Noyd
January 2009

Wisconsin native and California transplant Laube spins hippie bohemia into rootin’ tootin’ riverboat galleries moseying on down through spirited Delta blues, roadhouse honky-tonk and funky finger pickin’ folk.
