Once again, welcome to Dirty Glitter with Brody Ramone-review. We’re up to part 5 my High Voltage Magazine-recap of artists to re-discover, the artists and songs that I selected for play. Here we go:
Dirty Glitter 7/11/2013:
The Technicolors- “Again”
The Technicolors are out of Phoenix, AZ and their music is modern rock colored with shades of Britpop with good guitar work in the forefront: think shades of Oasis and Supergrass. They’re a four-man outfit made up of Brennan Smiley, Mikey Finezza, Michael Nicolette and Kevin Prociw and their current album, Listener, is a solid piece of work and on it is a pretty wicked cover of Chris Isaac’s “Wicked Game.” But on the original side of things, here’s the Technicolors with “Again.”
Queen V- “Good Enough”
Queen V isn’t just a band, it’s the woman who fronts this hard rocking outfit from New York City. Even though rock is typically a boy’s club, Queen V brings swagger, attitude and the ability to hold her own on a stage, with a guitar, writing songs and definitely when she opens her mouth to sing. She’s toured with Billy Idol and Twisted Sister and her new album released on June 25th, The Decade of Queen V, basically sums up the music she’s made since 2005 and she gets a little help from her friends like Tom Morello (Rage Against the Machine) and Lemmy of Motorhead. While she specializes in gutsy and hard rocking music, this track is the softer side of Queen V yet still gives you a clue as to what she’s about as well as her incredible lung power.
