New Video - "The Deer and the Owl" - The Cush


This is a new video from Burlington's The Cush. "The Deer and the Owl," from their 3rd full-length album, Between The Leaves out tomorrow. Directed by Dreamlike Pictures' Arthur Bell.

April 2010
"Hang the Moon

Sodafrog’s debut release, Hang the Moon is a beautiful album, three years in the making. What amazed me about this album is that Tom Janovitz, the talent behind Sodafrog, plays eight instruments on the album including the Chinese erhu and all the lead vocals. It is meticulously written, produced and recorded by Janovitz himself at “his place in Somerville” which really adds an impressive element to the album. No, element is an understatement. The quality of the sound on this album is truly gorgeous and I am extremely impressed.  It is obvious when an artist has put tremendous effort into their work to make it perfect and the end product glows with the labor and time that went into it. It makes an album very unique and gives it a pure personality. The songs vary in styles but root in American blues and indie folk-rock. The lyrics are balladistic and the stories are emotionally dark at times. “Central Nonsense” is a story about a girl who wants “more, more, more” the glockenspiel adds a jovial accent to the keep-on-truckin’ tempo and encouraging lyrics. It’s borderline poppy and is catchy as hell, I woke up with it stuck in my head. “Chances at Sea” is my favorite track on the album, composed of dire and wintery lyrics, “Don’t matter much anymore/the TV is still broken/you’re running out of books/the guitar is still missing all its strings”. The vocals are eerie and there are ghosts in the chorus. The song is beautiful and dark and sad. It is the only song on the album where Janovitz plays everything. The album is tight and the tracks are diverse. Hang the Moon is a shining example where hard work pays off. Sodafrog will be celebrating the release of Hang the Moon with a two day extravaganza at Plough and Stars in Cambridge on Thursday April 22nd and Friday April 23rd. Sodafrog will be playing with a full band including members of Mean Creek and Molly Coddle. http://sodafrog.blogspot.com/--Meghan Chiampa

The Cush Vermont Farewell Shows at The Monkey 4/9 and 4/10

Burlington's most promising, The Cush, are playing their "final local performance for the foreseeable future" tonight at 9pm at The Monkey House as well as another "final performance" tomorrow night, same time and place. This writer is sad and maybe a little heartbroken to see The Cush saying goodbye, but I'm sure I speak for the city and state when I wish them continued success with their unique take on the dreamy alt sound. The Cush are releasing their third full-length album, Between The Leaves, April 20th (expect a review soon). Playing alongside The Cush for both dates are some of Burlington's best. Friday will be Lowell Thompson and Cave Bees. Saturday is Mark Lind and Ryan Power.
