Music to Your Ears

By Laura Marrich

Skate + Jams

There's a perception that skateboarders are unmotivated people. When skaters aren't out carelessly destroying public property by "grinding" and such, they're manning the fryer at a shitty service industry job (if they have a job) or playing Xbox on some nasty old couch, probably one that belongs to a dude named Boner (or more precisely, Boner's mother).

Tommy Gearhart Autumn Serenade · Colette Push · Public Enemy How You Sell Soul to a Soulless People Who Sold Their Soul

There's nothing particularly special about local crooner Tommy Gearhart’s debut release. His charming voice is reminiscent of a young Sinatra, minus the showy pow! of whichever mighty big band he was upstaging. Backing Gearhart is an un-synced combo whose improvisation and feel is clunky, and really doesn’t do their leader any justice. This is, however, perfectly good music to make love to, or drink a lot of champagne to, or have an intelligent conversation to; only I recommend hearing this ensemble in their natural habitat. Find them at a smoky bar with a little dimly lit stage, drink some cocktails and hear what Old Blue Eyes must have sounded like when he was still young. [TG]
