Sonic Reducer

My Dear Disco Dancethink LP (Self-released)

[ MP3 Preview ]

My Dear Disco is addicted to dance-ahol. It can't just take a shot of ethereal disco hooks and shoot some pool with friends. No, it grabs a bottle of Dance Punk-brand whiskey and gulps it down before anyone can tell the Ann Arbor septet to slow down. Creative flourishes like funk guitar and time signature free-for-alls keep the album from becoming too superficial. But at the end of the day, the synth jams aren't especially cerebral. Dancethink LP belongs in a club, not a living room. If you're going to listen to it sans-party, crank the volume and enjoy a cocktail with this collection of hyperactive tracks. (SM)

Kevin Rudolf In The City (Cash Money Records)

[ MP3 Preview ]

Bling-bling Cash Money Records finally picked up an artist that shines without all the jewelry. Kevin Rudolf creates something edgy and completely different from traditional rap-rock pop artists. Maybe it's because he never raps. Rudolf has big-city vocals backed by A-list guitar skills--regrettably, Rudolf’s six-string is smothered by the album's electronic pop vibe. Like an artist who knows his medium, he sticks to what he’s good at--producing, singing and playing guitar--and lets rappers like Lil Wayne and Nas fill the bars. (JH)

Ladyfinger (ne) Dusk (Saddle Creek)

[ MP3 Preview ]

Tough, testosterone-fraught rock naturally lends itself to the favor of a more masculine audience, which could be why this album doesn't fully do it for me. However, if you like high-strung drumming, abounding guitar solos and stoner metal, or if you're just the kind of dude that likes wicked-awesome stuff like Shellac, then this album might be for you. Also, in case you were wondering, the (ne) stands for Ladyfinger's home state of Nebraska. (JCC)
