King Mud Vive Le Rock review

GOSPELBEACH review in ELMORE Magazine

ALIVE0174

Pacific Surf Line, conveys a style that bears testimony to the album title, a series of sun-drenched, softly shimmering Southern California rock tunes that pay due reverence to both the Beach Boys and Neil Young in nearly equal measure. The dreamy designs soaked through songs like “Sunshine Skyway” and “Southern Girl” boast the breezy aural imagery of a hazy Pacific sunset, while the infectious rhythms that accompany “California Steamer” and the cleverly titled “Out of My Mind (On Cope and Reed)” invoke a kind of carefree indulgence that could easily have wafted out of Laurel Canyon circa 1969. Indeed, the entire album comes across as a time warp of sorts, a brilliant paean to pure, hippy happenstance. – READ THE ENTIRE REVIEW HERE

This album is filled with groovy songs that just beg to be blared from windows. Think of this album as a musical Q-Tip to clean all that mundane commercial music that is so readily available. – Gary Schwind / READ THE REVIEW HERE

Great review of DM3 “West Of Anywhere” in ELMORE Magazine

ALIVE0175-STICKER

Hailed Down Under as on the cutting edge of Australia’s New Wave and Power Pop scene as it emerged in the 1990s, DM3 took an unabashedly enthusiastic approach to their craft, manifest in three albums released between 1993 and 1999. They made a mighty noise for a three-piece, and 20 years later, their stature is still as heightened as ever. Still, in this country they remain largely unknown, having had very little exposure here either on record on onstage. – Lee Zimmerman / READ THE ENTIRE REVIEW HERE

Nice review of DIRTY STREETS “White Horse” in NO DEPRESSION

ALIVE0176

Memphis’ throwback, garagey-arena rockers, Dirty Streets, were clearly brought up on copious amounts of rocknroll, Stax soul, Howlin’ Wolf’s howl and harp skills, Hubert Sumlin’s guitar, and heavily percussed psych and prog rock. Perhaps best described as a bit Troggs meets Flaming Groovies, a smattering of MC5, a sprinkle of Captain Beefheart, some Grand Funk Railroad, a pinch of ZZ Top-esque build ups and licks and your approaching their bitches brew. The band’s 4th full length and second on Alive Naturalsounds is a flat out doozie. Captured at the shrine that John Fry built, Ardent Studios, home to the ever growing legend of Big Star and Alex Chilton, still worked at by the one and only Jody Stephens (Big Star drummer), and home to the past couple Lucero records, the trio were well represented in the studio department. Dirty Streets were no slouch on their end of that bargain either. They brought beautiful noise for Ardent’s Matt Qualls to reel in, in the form of foot stomping wide open rockers all the way to shit kicking acoustic country soul, White Horse, as a record has left no influential stone uncovered. – Scott Zuppardo / No Depression.
