The new one by Upon This Drowning is "To Keep Us Safe" and it's on Fearless Records. Remember near the end of "The Avengers" movie when Loki is about to unleash his mindless minions on an unsuspecting world, only to be smashed by the Hulk? This would be their soundtrack - metallic with a low throated growl, providing the answer to an unasked question: What if the Predator had a band and he was really mad? Not even close.

The new one by Eve 6 is "Speak in Code" and it's on Fearless Records. It's their first new music in eight years, so evidently they're well rested - or broke - or both but in any case, they still have that in-your-face pop punk rock thing going on with giant bass player Max Collins' swell vocals on this if-it-ain't-broke-don't-fix-it return to form. You'll probably like "Lost & Found," and the-what-could-go-wrong scenario song, "B.F.G.F," which is shorthand for best friend's girlfriend. Anyone else remember a great double bill from more than a decade ago at Nicholby's in Ventura? Anyway, it was Eve 6 and about the best chick singer/songwriter you've never heard of, Kathleen Wilhoite.
Go Radio has a new one - it's Lucky Street and it's on Fearless Records. This one begins with a siren, reminiscent of the episode when the car dealer was checking Homer Simpson's credit and so astutely noted, "Sirens are rarely a good thing." Fortunately, the siren goes away quickly enough, leaving sweet pop punk - heavy on the punk, so sweet you ears may get cavities - not a bad thing. Nothing to make you change your mind or your life, just more solid pop punk - the likes of which we've all enjoyed many times before.Lucky Street by GoRadio
He is the tall guy lurking in the back of all the local rock shows.
