Commercials for 222 to 226 Part 2

Here we are again. Like I told you, this comes as a complete surprise to me. I figured George would live forever, I mean when he got hit by that Tow Truck last December I said to myself “Well,this son of a bitch isn’t going anywhere.” Then I got the call. Funny how getting hit by two tow trucks was his weakness, who knew?

Happy Diving – Big World – Music Review

Happy Diving Big World Father/Daughter Records First song starts off like Neil Young and Crazy Horse. Distorted, beautiful cacophony . First song doesn’t overstay it’s welcome. Second song, same type of sonic disposition. “Big World” is a heavier song, however the vocal style doesn’t change much. I don’t need different singers but it all sounds the same, and sometimes the vocals get a bit mushed in the mix. “Sad Planet” a nice change of pace from distortion. Heavy rock to Weezerish pin drops. As if Kevin Sheilds was fronting Weezer instead of MBV and the Weezer guys were fighting his natural tendencies toward depression and droning meta-cocky. Like the band was telling Ol’ Kev to “Lighten up a bit” . Vocals are a lot like Kevin Sheilds. Don’t change much song to song, and that’s fine. Beautifully produced. Distortion on most songs, with a sonic background, but crisp & clear production, not at all muddled. Many listens later I feel an appreciation for Hum from the band. Heavy, slowly building hard rock. I have fallen off the stage a few times myself. Not drunk or rocking out, I had my eyes closed, singing, really getting deeply into it. Got too close to the edge, and down I went. This music reminds me of that. Oh, they can get heavy, see “Big World” for a little thunder. Do you like Sugar ( hell Yes I do)? You’ll like this. Bob Mould would be the perfect producer for one of their future albums, a perfect fit for his producing skills. I know some bands with this type of heavy sound forget the beat. Pounding ahead while forgetting the swing. Fans of Dinosaur Jr. will enjoy hearing this band. This review was written by Brad Bugos. Leave comments or questions below or email...

Bobby’s Oar – The Weeds in Your Garden

Bobby’s Oar The Weeds in Your Garden Bobby’s Oar Bandcamp Just because most of the songs start with Greg and his guitar, don’t let that taint your ideas or feelings or ruin a chance for you to hear some quality tunes. With good ideas, and really good execution this release overcomes what you may have already stuffed in your hat about the first five seconds of any of these songs. Take your hat off and clear your head. Songs end at appropriate times at the edge of I’m Dead and I Don’t know. (*Note: I’m not sure what the hell I’m talking about here, my apologies to the band for any confusion this sentence may cause. I think what I was getting at was that a couple of the songs end right at the edge of the fall off point, perfectly fitting their theme and feeling.) “Shoestring” has a bit of a Violent Femmes vibe to it, many thanks for that. I really like the Violent Femmes and anyone who enjoys their music. A band who add’s a dash of them to their songs is more than cool with me. This is the kind of release where you are sad to see Among Giants (Greg Hughes last band) break up, but if this is the end result, then maybe it’s for the best. Sure there are the normal themes of a young man in these songs, questioning himself and his place in this world, and what his relationship to others is about, but Greg seems and sounds much older and wiser than 23. After many other listens “Highway 95” could have been a rot exercise about the changing world view of a young adult, but it’s got sincerity and a nice guitar cue that makes it work. I could use more Horns, but then couldn’t we all? “Shoestrings” has a bit of a country ho down feel to it, I can hear someone yelling “Yeehaw” when they play it live. Shows the band has diversity, can play some different styles. This Review was written by Brad Bugos, any thought or comments please direct them to brad@fatrobotradio.com or just leave a comment...

SLTM (The Podcast) Episode 226

SLTM (The Podcast) Episode 226 “Usher rude to man in Theater, tells him to ‘step off’ ” Really, who gives a shit that this is the last episode in this run? You? I doubt it, you’re too busy worrying about Deb’s “Performance” to care what episode of this podcast we are on. More importantly you’ll neglect the new music on this episode, from bands and artist you have never heard of, because Deb doesn’t do that thing she did with “Kevin”. Whoop Dee Shit. I hope you and Debra are happy together and that one night when you preforming the double deuce on her, you pull a muscle near your ass and lower back. I hope it’s painful for the rest of your life, and it acts up every time it storms. Creating such gems from you as “My siater is acting up” and “Boy, how about that weather? Huh? OH MY BACK”. Dick.
