I’ve gotten submissions lately that deserve to be mentioned, but I just don’t have the time to do full reviews on them. These are their stories. Ka-chunk.
VAL EMMICH-“Little Daggers”
RIDE THE BOOGIE-“Ride the Boogie”
Ride the Boogie are hard to classify–both laid back and funkie, new school and groovie, I pronounce their album worth a listen.
LOTO BALL SHOW-“Levy on the Eye Way”
As you can imagine from the name of the band (“Loto ball show,” get it) and the names of some of their songs (“Hoodlims;” “Oriental Danzig”), the Loto Ball Show make hard-edged fratboy rock. I found the album a little uneven, but there was enough there to impress me. I bet they’re a lot of fun live.
