New To Me: Would Be Goods Miss La-di-dah

Would Be Goods “Miss La-di-dah” discovered.   by Walter Price   The Would-Be-Goods single “Miss-la-di-dah” is taken from their 2004 unheard of by me album The Morning After, so Excusez-moi if I sound naive. What I am is blown away by this raw garage-psyche-pop gem that scrambled my senses when I learned it was not recorded in the…

Mark J. Lee is coming, The GTC has two clips. by Walter Price   Real-deal Alt-country ‘star on the rise’ is a misnomer of sorts, see, Lee has been around forging a solid career for years. Touring, producing and playing with Howlin’ Lord, Screamin’ Miss Jackson & The Slap Ya’ Mama Big Band among others. And…

Fire Tiger Open Eyes (This Christmas)

Fire Tiger for Christmas. by Walter Price   There has been plenty said about Fire Tiger’s retro sound and it is certainly inescapable. Vocalist Tiffany Alkouri’s beyond comprehension style and soulful delivery reminiscent of Bonnie Tyler or Kim Carnes and again I’m sure those comparisons have been iterated times over. This brings me to a holiday…

Single Midnight Snack Magic

Midnight Snack have a new single Magic from the forthcoming album Child’s Eyes. by Walter Price   Asheville, NC’s Midnight Snack have themselves fresh new single called “Magic” from their third full-length album, Child’s Eyes.

Pussy Riot

Pussy Riot Straight Outta Vagina

Pussy Riot empower the vagina? by Walter Price   I want to support Pussy Riot, and I do. But this new track “Straight Outta Vagina”, although catchy (the rap is killer) and a splash of fun…is a plain ole rip-off. Missy Elliot probably isn’t worried or cares and most likely supports the vagina anthem. But…

Here are just three. First, Chapman handles drums, vocals, guitar and ukulele…
