EXTRA
DESCENDENTS

Hypercaffium Spazzinate
The band that put puerile in pop-punk (fast food,
flatulence, caffeine, and crappy
girlfriends) returns. They're
more introspective, but these
50-somethings do not dodder into the dad-rock sunset.
Guitarist Stephen Egerton
and drummer Bill Stevenson
rage in lockstep; Milo Aukerman's vocals seem preserved
in post-adolescent 1982. The
real joy, though, is hearing
the hook- and snot-laden
volume and velocity intact
three decades on. Thou shalt
not commit adulthood. - DP

Bobby Black takes the bar on
the subsequent two. A Live
One is a raucous "greatest
hits" by the nontet. - DF

who's also proficient on guitar
and keyboards. As this new
album shows, there's no
one else like Hammill and
his dark, brooding voice. He
uses guitar on "Aloft" in for
textural parts and surprisingly
heavy power chords. - PP

BARNEY KESSEL

Live At the Jazz Mill, 1954
Kessel, already a jazz icon,
was recording his revered
albums for the Contemporary
label when he appeared at
a Phoenix jazz club, captured in clear, well-balance
mono on a portable tape
recorder. Accompanied by
the house band, led by future
piano star Pete Jolly, Kessel
blazes through eight numbers
ranging from "Seven Come
Eleven" to "Stardust." - RK

MARC RIBOT AND THE
YOUNG PHILADELPHIANS

Live in Tokyo
Jazz meets vintage soul.
Along with guitarist Mary
Halvorson and band, Ribot
pays tribute to two diverse
musical threads: '70s Philly
soul and Ornette Coleman's
first Prime Time band. Boundaries are stretched. - MD

DEX ROMWEBER

Carrboro
You can count on Flat Duo
Jets leader Romweber to go
for broke on any new release,
and he doesn't disappoint here.
There's plenty of wacked-out,
distorted guitar on sizzling
rockabilly, country, surf-rock,
and even gospel tunes. - MD

COMMANDER CODY AND
HIS LOST PLANET AIRMEN

Commander Cody and His
Lost Planet Airmen/Tales
From The Ozone/We've
Got A Live One Here
On this two-disc three-fer
from the mid '70s, George
Frayne and his Airmen
represent the Western swing
and boogie wing of countryrock. Bill Kirchen's masterful
Tele is teamed with Ernie
Hagar's steel on the band's
self-titled (sixth) album, while

THE FLESHTONES

The Band Drinks For Free
New York City's, and America's, resident garage band celebrates 40 years with another
winner. Peter Zaremba's vocals
and cheesy organ are the
perfect foil for the lead guitar
bursts of Keith Streng, a fine,
albeit criminally overlooked,
six-stringer. Originals like
"Love Like A Man" and "Rick
Wakeman's Cape" keep this
anniversary party rockin'. - DF

THE CAROLYN SILLS COMBO

Dime Stories Vol. 2
Classic honky-tonk lives
on with Sills' band, featuring
a lineup of stellar musicians.
Gerard Egan can be counted
on for hot country and rockabilly guitar, while Charlie Joe
Wallace graces proceedings
with his steel guitar. - MD

Do Not Disturb
Still making great British
prog after 45 years, VDGG
is back with frontman Peter
Hammill, an incredible singer

December 2016

CHARLIE APICELLA
AND IRON CITY

Payin' the Cost to be the Boss
Apicella and company pay
tribute to B.B. King, covering three of his tunes to
open the record. But it's the
cuts that follow that provide
insight into this fine young
guitarist and his band. His
playing is bluesy, swinging,
and full of emotion. - JH

CROBOT

Welcome to Fat City
Crobot's third album is
packed with energetic greasy
rock and cool guitar effects
courtesy of Chris Bishop.
Muscular grooves and tasty
band arrangements propel
Brandon Yeagley's fierce vocal
delivery with zeal. "Not For
Sale," "Blood On The Snow,"
and the title track flies in the
face of those who believe
good rock is dead. - OJ

AVETT BROTHERS
FREDDY COLE

VAN DER GRAAF GENERATOR

brother, Freddy, who handles
vocals and piano. Napoleon
is sympathetic without being
blasé - perfect for Cole's laidback, swinging delivery. - DF

He Was The King
Though Randy Napoleon has
released five excellent solo
CDs, the jazz guitarist is better
known as accompanist - to
Michael Bublé, Ben Jansson,
Josh Brown, and others.
This is his sixth outing with
Nat "King" Cole's younger

VINTAGE GUITAR

True Sadness Today
Sixteen years on, and
Seth and Scott Avett take
their most adventurous
voyage yet, blending their
Americana-infused sound
with the likes of Queen, Nine
Inch Nails, and more. The
result is bold, yet lacks some
of the warmth and heart of
their earlier albums. - MD
