3 Songs: On Repeat

Berwanger – “I Want You Bad” (Hot on the heels of The Anniversary’s recent reunion shows, Josh Berwanger is set to release his long-awaited sophomore solo album, Exorcism Rock today via Doghouse Records.  Produced by Doug Boehm – who worked on The Anniversary’s album, Your Majesty - the new album amps up the energy by blending glam rock sparkle, 80’s hair metal decadence and layers of indelible harmonies and arena-rock catchiness; resulting in one of the best albums of the year.  Catch them on tour now – they will play the MOTR Pub in Cincy this Sunday, 11/6.)

Jim James – “Same Old Lie” (The My Morning Jacket frontman returns today with his sophomore solo set, Eternally Even, via ATO Records/Capitol Records. Even more experimental, hypnotically psychedelic and endearingly soulful than its predecessor, 2013’s debut solo album, Regions of Light and Sound of God, the new album is anchored by James’ golden croon and much like the soul singers of the 60’s, his revolutionary, politically-charged yet humanistic lyrical themes are timely and much needed.)

CRX – "Ways To Fake It" (CRX is the new band led by The Strokes’ guitarist Nick Valensi, their debut album, New Skin was released last week via Columbia Records.  The album was produced by Josh Homme of Queens Of The Stone Age and on it Valensi takes the vocal spotlight for the first time and he and his crew – keyboardist Richie James Follin of Guards and Willowz, drummer Ralph Alexander of The Dose, bassist Jon Safley of People On People and guitarist Darian Zahedi also of People On People - create an exciting and fresh sound that incorporates tightly-wound rhythms, bright, neon New Wave melodies along with shades of bluesy dive bar rock and roll for a very promising debut.)
