Album Notes - The Murlocs - Bittersweet Demons

Erickson July 29, 2021

"The murloc is a bipedal, amphibious, semi-intelligent, aggressive race residing along coastlines, lakeshores, and riverbeds. Murlocs possess bulbous bodies, large mouths lined with rows of sharp fangs, and slime-coated skin. Individuals range in coloration from turquoise to darkish grey, while their heights vary from 3-1/2 feet to 6 feet. Depending on the variety, murlocs may lean towards a…

Fire-Fighters Battle Local Shwag Blaze

Dispatches July 25, 2021

The Cannatown fire department was called to 420 Beasley St. Thursday night, to contain a small fireplace fire gone wrong for none other than occasional contributor to Dispatches, Mr. Hugh Jollydab. The blaze was contained and put out by 5:20am, but not before destroying much of Jollydab’s living room. 

Fire Chief Higgins reported that the…

Album Notes - Twin Shadow - Twin Shadow

Erickson July 22, 2021

It's mid-July and the only place to file the self-titled release from Twin Shadow is under "jams, summer." The Dominican-American born George Clark Jr. deftly hits that seasonal sweet spot on his fifth studio effort. 

Twin Shadow is firmly rooted in pop and undeniably catchy. An overarching sheen coupled with segments that are understandably a little too bubblegum…

30 OVER 30: Middle-Aged Thousandaires

Dispatches July 18, 2021

As Cannatown settles in for a strange time “between pandemics,” there are bright spots on the landscape. Literally tens of them. The 30 young gamblers, part-timers, live-at-homers, and failed investors featured in our annual 30 Over 30 offer a fleeting glimpse of hope, and it ain’t much. Some aren’t defying the odds or improving themselves; others are battling with terrible…

Album Notes - The Go! Team - Get Up Sequences Part One

Erickson July 14, 2021

Once again, "Party to" would be applicable between the definite article and punctuated imperative in the band's name to more precisely clue listeners in as to what will transpire. The Go! Team are back with their sixth LP, as always, a kaleidoscope of genres. 

While Get Up Sequences Part One continues the pattern of increasingly hi-fi releases, there…

Album Notes - Rose City Band - Earth Trip

Erickson July 6, 2021

Do you like Neil Young? Do you like Workingman's Dead/American Beauty-era Grateful Dead? Hope so, cause apparently so does Ripley Johnson, aka Rose City Band. After the album's opening chords, I was half expecting "There is a town in north Ontario" to come mumbling out of the Connecticut-raised, Oregon-residing musician's mouth. What unfolds isn't far off. Nestle…

Performance-Dehancing Substance Use Sidelines Kickballer

Dispatches July 5, 2021

Fans were shocked community-wide to hear that Peewee Henderson, captain of the local Kadet Kickball team The Chuggy Rickets, has been kicked off the team following allegations of using the performance-dehancing substance, cannabis. Kadet Kickball, a sport in which the worst team wins, has banned cannabis, physical blindfolding, and any other method of dehancing one's performance, since the…

Album Notes - King Gizzard & the Lizard Wizard - Butterfly 3000

Erickson June 20, 2021

...but this time it's different. If previous records from these guys haven't been your jam, don't stop when you read the name. You just might like this one. 

We last met King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard on their December 2020 effort K.G. Since then, February saw the release of its companion L.W., notable for…

Cadets Make Their Way Into Space

Dispatches June 19, 2021

A Spaced-X Green Dragon spacecraft, carrying four somewhat confused astronauts, launched this morning from Cape Cannaveral in the Highlands, beginning what could be a six-month stay in space, depending on their ability to circumnavigate the earth from orbit whilst astronomically high. 

This launch marked the third flight for Elaine Mux’s company and the first to make…
