What?! You’re telling me there’s only three left?

It is a mystery that brings me to you all today. Isn’t that rich? Send in the clowns, Bozo.

Redd Kross
Researching The Blues

Redd Kross are back with a bang, at least at first, they hit us with 3-4 powerful intense songs, but by the end of the record they relax back into a pop soundscape that is all their own. Combined, it makes for a great listen, and no one song really defines the record. It’s just all good.


Mike Viola
Acousto De Perfecto

You simply can’t go wrong with Mike Viola. This time, he takes a bunch of old songs, a couple new ones, and runs them through a stripped down acoustic format, which really brings out the lyrics and the message of his music. It is so very good.


Kevin Tihista’s Red Terror
On This Dark Street

Another guy who kind of just sits there under the surface, always working on something, always releasing new records. His whispered vocals have always intrigued me; it is a good rainy day record.


Eytan Mirsky
Year of the Mouse

Eytan always delivers a great set of songs. This collects many more great songs and stories. Using great tunes, humorous lyrics (at times), and a strong consistent voice, it makes for a fun and engaging listening experience.


Sloan
Australia 1999

Another live bootleg LP from this band, which is ostensibly the greatest band of all time, but really you do not get the full picture with a live recording, it doesn’t offer too much in the vein of improvements on the songs, but still fun to revisit songs from that time.
