Airtight Garage – Felangus Box (CD)

When I saw this CD I was expecting nothing but overbearing indie rock that would have me wanting to kill myself between the fifth and sixth track. I was wrong, as Mike Ness says, as tracks like “Ocean Close” show a nice mixture of the Doors, R.E.M. and the B-52s, all packaged together with a fairly convincing mastering. The overall tone of the disc is solidified with “Duke The Deadman & Spike the Goddamned”, and it is during tracks like “Straight Message” that slightly different directions are taken by the band, ensuring that their listener base will not get bored. In fact, :”Straight Message” is the stepping off point, as after Airtight Garage have hooked in their listener base, they really have carte blanche to do whatever they wish with the rest of the disc. What results, in tracks like “Passing Star”, are very catchy alt-rock tunes that seem perfect for another time (think the turn of the nineties) instead of the cold and mechanical drek that is being pushed on the world en masse by record companies.

Air Supply – The Singer and the Song (CD)

Now, Air Supply has to be behind the 8 ball when it comes to “The Singer and the Song”. First off is the fact that the band has not charted in a meaningful way for about 20 years, and secondly, that this is an acoustic album. Acoustic albums usually only get picked up by fans of the group, of which there quite a few still around (175,000 attendance at a show in Cuba), but what does “The Singer and the Song” have to really draw in anyone that is under 25?

Airport 81 – Put Your Squares Together (CD)

The electronic sound of “Bonus Jack” is not necessarily influenced by Devo, but it really comes out of a more current techno / electronic vein . The bass line of “Hectrometre” really casts Airport 81 into a different vein, Each of the tracks on “Put Your Squares Together” has a completely different set of influences; a song like “Low Speed Impact Test” really seems to be pushed forward by a Locust type of sound. There is nothing in the way of vocal tracks, which really makes “Put Your Squares Together” into an album that would work perfect for those people wishing to zone out. The tracks of this album are fairly innocuous, with a track like “Square Vehicles On Collision Course”, Airport 81 gets their hardest and it is still nowhere near the intense electronic sounds of My Life With The Thrill Kill Kult or Ministry.
