A Pastor Releases New Song “Peddlers of Fear”

A Pastor Releases New Song “Peddlers of Fear” – Song written by a pastor and grandfather of three, who he calls “grandpa’s girls”  As he was recently watching them for an afternoon. When he got home he turned on the news. He was struck by the contrast between their joy, live in the moment, innocence and the fear-mongering in our current culture reflected in the news. In time, of course, the pastor knew his grand-daughters would grow and change. But he’s worried how their development might be effected if such a cultural climate of fear persisted. Other questions began to

Mike LePond’s Silent Assassins: “Pawn and Prophecy” – Dense, dynamic and super tight

There is no doubt that “Pawn and Prophecy” is going to garner some serious praise. This album puts the ‘classic’ back in metal in a definitive kind of fashion. The album represents the direction many true metal fans hoped and presumed the genre would go after all the ridiculous sub-genres that crawled out of the woodwork over the past few years. This album basically sows the seeds for a whole new generation of power metal – one with technique, speed and aggression that has no regard for radio-friendly or corporate rock elements. There is no denying the awe-inspiring quality and

Newborn: “Shadow Of Your Heart” – atmospheric, beefy, and more than a little radio friendly!

The single, “Shadow Of Your Heart” is a successful demonstration of the progression of Newborn as a band. With emblematic lyrically content, well-crafted vocals, and brilliant instrumentation, this is the gem of the band’s catalog thus far. Cathartically channeling their 90’s grunge predecessors, the beautiful bone-chilling arrangement takes in various genre influences to deliver something intrinsically their own. The band’s credentials as musicians have never been in question since their debut release, but even so, the seamless nature with which they gel is impressive. And while the driving rhythm section and guitars never fail to keep things interesting, it’s vocally

Catalina Shortwave: >>Repeater>> Breaks The Mold of Current Rock n’ Roll!

Catalina Shortwave is a band that thumbs its nose at genres. The band who claim they are proudly lo-fi, draw from punk, R&B, hard rock and country, and not necessarily in that order, find the strength of their songs in the passion of its performances. The players – Brent, Marty and Dave are three New York/New England music veterans who weave their hearts and lives into their music.

For their debut recording, >>Repeater>>, Catalina Shortwave have developed a sound all their own that only comes from musicians playing together as a true collective -everyone shares the same musical goal and the song is more important than the individual participants.

Songwriting is the key, and the band deliver with original, quality compositions. The 15 genre-breaking tracks that make up >>Repeater>>, shows a band with confidence, who are comfortable at contemporarily running the crossover gauntlet of R&B, southern rock, hard rock and punk. That in itself is a courageous feat for any band. Not to mention one on its debut!

Whether the choice is commercially ‘correct’ or not, will depend entirely on the awaiting market. But my impression is that Catalina Shortwave couldn’t give two hoots about the marketing math and are more concerned about doing their primary thing. Which is playing music, and boy do they do it well!

The coolest thing about >>Repeater>>, is that you can listen to it from either end; on repeat, on shuffle, back to back, and just about any other possible way you can. The result is always the same. The album sounds like a radio station, playing the pick of the best bands and songs of our time. I practically heard The Doors, then The Allman Brothers Band. Johnny Cash also came up, as did Nirvana, Tom Petty, Grank Funk Railroad and REM. Damn, I’m sure I even heard Kenny Rogers and Aerosmith in the same song! I think it was on “There  Ain’t  Much Goin’ On But The Bottle”.

The obvious peculiarity being, that these were all original compositions and performances by Catalina Shortwave!

Brent Morton, Marty Stauffer and David Rizzo truly deal out a lavish diversity of authentic styles that sweep up influences from the 60s and 70s right through until today. Uncompromisingly and unabashedly, they play DIY rock n’ roll that shifts the tone away from perfect, crystalline productions to raw, organic rock creativity. This once was the true essence of rock n’ roll; before some over-blown, big-headed and totally over-rated beings called ‘Producers’ came along to turn a creatively explosive genre into a docile assembly-line.

Catalina Shortwave break the mold, in probably the most difficult period in the history of rock n’ roll. Technology and ‘Producers’ are fundamental to today’s music, especially as the only instruments most current ‘musicians’ are only capable of playing, are Qwerty keyboards and iPad touchscreens.

Catalina Shortwave sound like a garage band knocking the heck out of real instruments. They play, they sing and they really produce creativity that sounds like it comes from another era. This much is evidenced on standout songs like “Running On Vapor”, “You Rained Hell On Me”, “Wintersong”, “Starstruck”, “Make Through The Night” and “Don’t Never Take Your Love Away”.

From start to finish this is one beautiful piece of work. There are no dead spots or let downs in this collection…just one great musical piece after another. >>Repeater>> has great variety and pacing, and not a thing misses its mark for me.
