Full of restless energy, Electric River’s “Phony Radio” is a celebration of sound. The taut groove works wonders with infectious guitar riffs throughout. Vocals possess great commanding power, with a sense of reassurance marking the joy embedded within the piece.
Willie Nile sing straight from the heart on “American Ride”. Stripped down to its absolute essentials the song’s impeccable arrangements recall Bob Dylan’s wide-eyed wonder with Americana. Lyrics color in the entirety of the song as Willie Nile’s reverent awe of the American experience is palpable.
A true sense of play defines the rambunctious “Boots On, Rock Off” by Dust Bowl Jokies. The song demands to be played loud, ridiculously loud. Glam rock at its best, everything about it simply works from the blistering guitar to the rhythm’s unrelenting spirit.
Playful to its very core, Jon Mullane’s “My New American Girl” is pop perfection. Jon Mullane recalls Weezer’s self-titled debut. Irresistible to its core the song’s driving rhythm meshes with Jon Mullane’s sweet ode to a new kind of modern love.
Starkly beautiful, Egon and Pepso’s “Anger” takes a minimalist approach. Their insistent grey industrial churn is aptly suited for the bleak subject of breakups. Nicely balancing the propulsive rhythm is occasional glimpse of tender beauty shown through careful usage of piano, at times trying to reach a sense of piece while still working through the loss of love.
Romy Conzen’s “Cruel To Be Kind” takes off on full blast. A funky sensibility takes hold as the song carefully bounces along full of undeniable energy. Her voice shines through serving as the heart and soul of the song. Rhythms stop and start on a dime as the guitar riffs are full of defiance.
Ending things on a dreamy note is the flirtatious “Girl” by Scary Cherry and The Bangs Bangs. With a clear fondness for the theatrical the clever work recalls some of David Bowie’s best 70s work. A pure pleasure everything works from the catchy melody to the unforgettable lyrics.
