Donovan Quinn Honky Tonk Medusa

(Northern Spy)
Also known for his work with several groups (including The Skygreen Leopards, which he formed with Glenn Donaldson,) Quinn sounds moody, mellow and insightful on his third solo record. His music sounds like a mix of indie, folk and country styles: with his sleepy-eyed vocals, he sounds pleasantly content on songs like the warm, dream-like “Laughing City” (“every tail-light is a memory/ that burns a little candle for me.”) A few tracks later, “Dying City” provides a bleak but surprisingly calming perspective on the opposite, thanks to its gentle guitar and fittingly strong piano notes (closer “Love In An Evil World” also pulls off a somber, sky-wide atmosphere well with its synth.) Another track that I really enjoy is “Shadow On The Stone,” which starts out acoustic and rustic before incorporating a very country-perfect steel guitar. In addition to singing and playing the guitar and synth, he employs five other musicians: they include Papercuts’ Jason Quever (guitar and drums) and Odawas’ Michael Tapscott (keyboard, harmonica, harmonium and guitar.)

The Locust Molecular Genetics From The Gold Standard Labs

It’s hard to believe this San Diego grind/noise/spazz/whatever rock four-piece has been around for almost two decades. With their short, utterly chaotic songs using variously abused rock instrumentation (including some very unnerving synth) to kick down the rules of musical structure and incorporate snarky (not to mention puzzling) comments delivered in screams, they’ve proven to be quite polarizing to the uninitiated. Personally, I enjoy the uneasy listening that The Locust provides: even though the songs are insane (titles include “How To Become A Virgin” and “Twenty-Three Lubed-Up Schizophrenics With Delusions of Grandeur”), all the pieces fit together quite well. This isn’t outright improvised madness; it’s no surprise that The Locust’s tightly (and, of course, unconventionally) structured work has provided many with a bridge between more familiar forms of rock and the weirdo experimental world. This compilation features 44 tracks recorded between 1997 and 2003. Included, among other things, is their self-titled 7-inch EP, debut album and the Flight Of The Wounded Locust EP; contributions to split seven-inches with Arab On Radar and Melt Banana, and even a Queen cover: “Flash’s Theme” from the Dynamite With A Laserbeam tribute on Three One G.
