[ 2 ] December 30, 2010 |

Hey! It’s another Best of 2010 List! We almost chose to forgo the usual list-making duties that every writer/blogger/music-lover/mother-and-your-brother goes through at this time of year, but we just couldn’t stop ourselves from giving these locals another lil’ pat on the back for making us rock out, chill out, and groove on a bit more […]

CD Review: citizenGreen — Ulterior Motives

CD Review: citizenGreen — Ulterior Motives

[ 1 ] December 29, 2010 |

citizenGreen Ulterior Motives Nophi Record/dPulse By Eric Chavez With its distinct, haunting qualities, Ulterior Motives, the new EP by citizenGreen could be one of the best Atlanta-based produced records of the year. Not the typical southern sound of rap or indie rock, citizenGreen ventures off into a space of minimalist electronica. And even though the […]

CD Review: The Dirty Guv’ners — Youth Is in Our Blood; Playing Smith’s Olde Bar, January 15

The Dirty Guv’ners Youth Is in Our Blood By Al Kaufman Most band members aren’t exactly known for their academic intelligence. Make it a bluesy, southern rock band and the odds are even greater. Make it a good southern rock band and it’s a pretty safe bet that Dirty Guv’ners is the only such band. […]

This weekend, you are probably going to be in one of two camps. 1) You’ll be wrapped up in a happy cocoon of Christmastime, joyfully taking part of all the eating, presents, caroling and sleeping. Or, 2) You’ll be gritting your teeth, trying to find a way to escape the family and pressure of making […]

Live Review: FUN at The Loft, December 11

Live Review: FUN at The Loft, December 11

[ 1 ] December 14, 2010 |

By Dan Adams; photos by Nathan Berrong When FUN performed at The Loft on Saturday, December 11, it felt more like a celebration than a rock show. It might have had something to do with the brightly-colored flashing “fun” sign positioned behind the band that was perfectly in sync with every note and influx of […]

CD Review: Regina Spektor — Live in London

[ 0 ] December 13, 2010 |

Regina Spektor Live in London Sire By Al Kaufman Regina Spektor is an acquired taste. While most often compared to that other weird piano playing diva, Tori Amos, Spektor comes across as more appealing, and possibly slightly wackier. Spektor’s CDs have always been a mix of sheer beauty, idiosyncrasies, and sometimes downright annoyances. Live, the […]

CD Review: David Mayfield — The Parade; Playing Eddie’s Attic, December 8

[ 0 ] December 8, 2010 |

David Mayfield The Parade By Al Kaufman David Mayfield has a voice as warm and friendly as a James Taylor smile. If The Parade were full of mid-tempo soft rockers it would be pleasant enough, but Mayfield is more than a Sweet Baby James clone. The bass player who grew up on bluegrass music is […]
