Each Friday, we bring you reviews of 10 recently released CDs done in 10 words each:
Input Pictureface Cant get past what sounds like rapper with a lisp.
The Rippingtons Modern Art Upbeat jazz makes me think of a doctors waiting room.
O+S O+S Remy Zero bassist teams with Orenda Fink for mellow grooves.
Kaskade The Grand Electronic music gets your ass moving all sounds the same. (At The Forum on May 15.)
Kylesa Static Tensions Music is a little more unique, but screamings the same.
Shrek the Musical Original Cast Recording Seriously?!? Why not try writing a better movie sequel instead.
The Blackbelt Band A New Community Music isnt bad, but lyrics and vocals are kinda weak.
Dan Hicks & The Hot Licks Tangled Tales Could do without jazzed-up cover of Subterranean Homesick Blues.
16 Frames Where it Ends Sorry, but most of these lyrics, beats sound ripped off.
The Mojo Gurus Let's Get Lit With... Rock with a Southern twang is unintentionally I think? comedic.
