GOLDEN TRIANGLE Double Jointer LP+MP3 / CD
*** RECOMMENDED "Golden Triangle is a band of three girls and three boys who play music that's loud and spooky, and will make you aroused and ambitious. They fall somewhere along the psychedelic / garage / post-punk spectrum, with two singing ladies who sound like soulful ghosts."
THEE HEADCOATS Heavens To Murgatroyd... CD
*** RECOMMENDED Dang! Wild Billy Childish's Sub Pop LP is a gem! Do you know this man? The finest in outsider garage rock, to be sure. Listen to "Girl Of Matches" for a taste -- the wild video is probably on YouTube.
RJD2 Inversions Of The Colossus CD
*** "All 7 of the vocal songs on 'The Colossus' appear here sans vocals. The remainder of the album is made up of 7 new songs -- 14 tracks in all! Ranging from banging dance floor funk to extreme psychedelia, it follows a similar 'no format' approach as 'The Colossus' did. Yet another solid collection of classic RJD2."
SCISSOR SISTERS Night Work CD
*** "Night Work is a Dance record but it's not all Electronic. You can still hear the sound of a band spinning out together in a rehearsal room. It is the first time Scissor Sisters recruited Stuart Price (The Killers, Madonna) to co-produce."
WOLF PARADE Expo 86 2xLP+MP3 / CD
*** "Recorded and mixed at Hotel2Tango, with Howard Bilerman, in late February and early March of 2010, EXPO 86 is the name of the new and third album by Montreal s Wolf Parade."
