Bryan Clark & the
New Lyceum Players
I defy you to find a
guitar part on this
record that doesn’t
flat-out rule. Bryan Clark and Adam Fluhrer
seamlessly mix elements of blues, pop, country,
jazz, and fusion—all tracked live with
old-school gear. They do some of the best
two-guitar interplay around, weaving riffs
and sounds together in a super-compelling
fashion. In addition to the non-stop stellar
6-string work, the production is top-notch,
as well. Color me impressed. Rainfeather.
Big Moon Ritual
The former Black
and co-guitarist Neal
Casal (whose work you
might know from Ryan Adams and the Cardinals)
have created a roots-o-licious collection
of tunes that is best described in the
press packet: “…a breathing kaleidoscopic
thing stuffed with chooglin’ soul, bedrock
boogie, and shuffling wisdom.” It also has
beautiful guitar tones, inventive parts, gorgeous
solos, and killer vocals all around.
Nice! Silver Arrow/Megaforce.
Unlocked: Live from
the Georgia Theater
Do you want to love
techno music, but get
bummed out by the fact
it sometimes has lame
guitar or no guitar? Then you will find this
set by Conspirator to be very inspiring. The
band has the pulsating grooves and synth
bleeps that you would expect, but what you
might not expect is guitarist Chris Michetti,
who delivers Nile Rodgers-approved funk
on “Velvet Red,” technically demanding
fuzz melodies on “Feed the Wolf,” bluesrock
wailing on “S&M,” and full-on speedpicked
shred on “Retrograde.” Sci Fidelity.
