Dagger #39 / $2|$3.50PPD / 1:15 / http://www.indiepages.com/dagger /Â
Dagger is one of those zines that I am not sure if I am comfortable reading. There are so many acts that Iâ€™ve never even gotten close to hearing (this issue features The Catâ€™s Miaow, Slovenly, Colin Clary, and Surefire Broadcast), and those acts that are more established are very few (Mission of Burma and The Decemberists this issue). Furthermore, I think Iâ€™m uncomfortable with how the editors of Dagger believe individuals are familiar with all of the acts that are covered. If there was more of the way of an introduction to some of these acts, I think individuals that might not have had a good introduction to the act in he past could gain an appreciation for the acts covered. I believe The Big Takeover does this well with the acts covered, and that Dagger could stand to benefit from predicating more of these pieces with reasons why individuals should focus on the acts in the magazine. The amount of advertisements in this magazine is par for the course with the large print-run magazines, and are really well suited to the coverage that Dagger gives. The price really cannot be beat, and for individuals that wish to find acts on the periphery of popularity, Dagger may just be the magazine that they first pick up in the morning. It may take a trip to the bandâ€™s Myspace or Wikipedia to find out why exactly they should listen to the act, but Dagger seems to have good decisions each issue for the fan of more indie types of music.

I really had no clue that the Blue Man Group had been around for over 20 years. This album â€œHow To Be A Megastarâ€ provides individuals with an audio and video component that captures quite different sections and facets of the Blue Man Groupâ€™s inimitable style. Both segments were, as individuals may be able to tell, taken from the Blue Man Groupâ€™s 2006-2007 â€œHow To Be A Rockstarâ€ tour. The amount of value that is present during this CD/DVD set is amazing; aside from providing purchasers with a video and audio version of a concert, the Blue Man Group have added a number of fun and interesting things to the DVD portion of the disc.

Midnight Movies â€“ Nights EP / 2008 New Line / 6 Tracks / http://www.midnightmovies.net /
It has been a while since we here at NeuFutur have heard anything from the Midnight Movies, and this â€œNightsâ€ EP marks the next evolution in their sound. The act makes a strong step forward with their psychedelic version of The Moody Bluesâ€™ â€œNights In White Satinâ€. Despite the Jefferson Airplane-styled vocals that are present, the focal point of this track has to be the atmospheric arrangements that dominate during the chorus. Where most acts would keep the cover songs to the end of their CD, Midnight Movies are able to really give the track a life that effectively gives them a pass. The second track is â€œShould Have Knownâ€ and it links the psychedelic sound of the introductory track with a Breeders-style approach to alternative music and a hint of Ministry-esque industrial.
