Gary Hoey, Wake Up Call. This is a tremendously cool disc for instrumental freaks. Hoey is on fire, his tones kick ass, and the songs are some of the hippest cruisin’ tracks ever. Crank it! Surfdog. —MM Dope, Group Therapy. Edsel Dope adores guitars, and though he toils in a nu-metal world where clichés abound, his awesome production chops, songwriting skills, and brutal 6-string textures elevate his music to its very own tower of brilliance. Recon/Artemis. –MM Monte Alexander with special guest Ernest Ranglin, Rocksteady.Pianist Alexander and guitarist Ranglin made their legend tracking countless sessions at the legendary Studio One in Jamaica. Here, the two revisit their roots with Ranglin absolutely burning throughout. Telarc. —DF Djam Karet, A Night for Baku. If you yearn for top-drawer, metal-tinged prog chockfull of classic synth textures, spacey yet incendiary dual guitars, and tight drum and bass grooves—this tasteful and well-produced CD is for you. Cuneiform. —BC Gene Bertoncini, Acoustic Romance. Displaying a classical virtuoso’s chops and a jazz master’s harmonic savvy, Bertoncini draws crisp, amber tones from his nylon-string in this set of timeless, swinging standards. Sons of Sound. —AE The Decembrists, Her Majesty, the Decembrists. Positively perfect pop songs coupled with brilliant, story-telling lyrics make this indie gem well worth investigating. Colin Meloy could well prove himself to be the songwriting star of his generation. Kill Rock Stars. —EF
