  Track Review!!!… Cashes Rivers / Quite A Change

  Every once in awhile a song comes around with so much lyrical power, so much raw emotion, that it almost has to be hidden on the back side of an album to prevent people from being scared away.  An example off the top of my head; Korn’s “Daddy” off of their self-titled debut, the emotions in that band were real for at least a few years.  Another good example, would be Weezer’s “Only In Dreams” on the Blue Album.

  Cashes Rivers follows in the footsteps, by releasing his own self-titled debut album in October.  With a sound miles away from Korn, btw.  ”Quite A Change” is a fitting end to his debut; Cashes Rivers explores all forms of emotion on this one.  But the stand outs like “Quite A Change” and “As I Drift”, showcase what Cashes is capable off…like a Broken Social Scene b-side, which should have been included on the album.

Rob Zombie / Mars Needs Women / Hellbilly Deluxe 2

I believe some of this was shot in Des Moines, w/ Joey Jordinson on Drums…my favorite song off of the new album.  Apparently he’s already recording music w/ the current band…can’t wait.

Flaming Lips / See The Leaves / Bonnaroo

  This is the view from where I was standing for the Flaming Lips this year at Bonnaroo, Stevie is across the stage dancing.  I was supposed to be a giant blow up Catfish, but there ended up not being enough room on stage for the blow ups.  So I moved to the other side of the stage where I watched the show w/ the sound man and McLovin from Superbad.  This years Bonnaroo was unreal.
