Positively Positive Review – Concert: Louden Swain

by on Apr.03, 2010, under Concerts, Music

Louden Swain band

Last Friday night I was lucky enough to attend Creation’s Salute to Supernatural Convention in LA. I was also lucky enough to attend the concert given by ‘Louden Swain’ and thought they were amazing. I have to admit that I had to Google the band name to find out what it meant, having never seen the movie “Vision Quest”.

This is my first time reviewing a live band performance and I’m finding it hard to describe why I enjoyed it so much. First off I’d have to say it’s just because of the band themselves. Lead singer Rob Benedict had already spoken earlier on stage about his work on the show. Maybe it was because I enjoyed his panel so much that I also enjoyed the show.

But I like to think that I’m not simply being biased by being a fan of Rob and his character “Chuck”. After all, the man singing on stage bore very little resemblance to his onscreen alter ego. Somehow I doubt we’d ever see Chuck rocking out wearing a short sleeved white shirt and thin black tie. Though when many of the girls in the audience screamed for him to “take it off!”, I did see just a bit of “Chuck” in Rob’s embarrassed response.

The music was a fun mix of rock, alternative and other stuff I’m probably not musically educated enough to recognize. All I know is that it was extremely fun to listen to live, which is not always the case with me and bands I don’t know. Part of the fun of listening to live music (for me, anyway) is singing along to the songs I know. Sometimes I have found myself a tad bored when watching a band I’ve never seen before.

Not so with these guys. From the first note to the final one, I was bopping along in my seat (and a little disappointed that I had to stay there, wanting to dance along instead). I was extremely sorry when their set was over and immediately joined the long line forming to buy their CD – ‘A Brand New Hurt’.

Overall a really fun concert and I hope that these guys do well so that I can hear their music on my radio someday. Until then I’ll have to be content with the memories as I listen to them on my iTunes.

Positively Positive Review – Website: I Am Rogue

current movie reviews

I was invited to check out this site and gotta say that I was really impressed by it. It is for Rogue Pictures which helped to bring some of my favorite movies to the big screen like ‘Shaun of the Dead’ and ‘Hot Fuzz’.

Going to their ‘Movies’ section, I found some really great trailers for some flicks I hadn’t heard about yet and now that I’ve seen the previews, I really want to check them out – movies like ‘Season of the Witch’ and ‘MacGruber’

I really liked the quality of the site – the previews load very easily and are absolutely perfect. Plus I like that they include other info as well, like a synopsis of the movie, statistics, etc.

Overall a very slick looking site that looks to a be a good resource for upcoming Rogue Pictures projects.

Positively Positive Review – NCIS Soundtrack, Volume 2

by on Nov.16, 2009, under Music, Soundtracks

NCIS Soundtrack Volume 2
NCIS: The Official TV Soundtrack, Vol. 2

 

Earlier this year, I bought NCIS: The Official TV Soundtrack and it quickly became one of my favorite CD’s. I burned it onto my iPod and played it nearly non-stop for months. I loved that it had two disks, one with more contemporary music and the second (aptly named “Abby’s Lab”) with techo/rock. I found favorites on both disks as I like both styles.

NCIS: The Official TV Soundtrack, Vol. 2  is only one disk, which was little disappointing but I got over it. There are still plenty of good songs on it. From jazzy sounding songs to contemporary rock, pop and modern rock – the album is a nice mix with a little bit of everything on it. I imagine it can’t be easy to make all NCIS fans happy, but I think they did a pretty good job.

Now I know that many people who review this album talk about Bob Dylan’s song on it. He is a big name after all and it’s great that they were able to get him on it once again (since he had a song on the first album as well). Trouble is I’m just not a fan of his.

So I’m going to move on to my favorite songs…

“Bitter and Blue” by Michael Weatherly – Okay so anyone who reads this blog can tell that not only am I a fan of NCIS but that Tony is my favorite character. So you may be thinking that it’s just the fangirl squeeing inside that likes this song. Not true. Last month I heard a clip of “Bitter and Blue” and couldn’t stop humming it for days. Now that I’ve heard the song in its entirety, it’s even better. Michael’s singing is smooth and the tune is fun and catchy, despite its rather serious theme.

“That Time of Year” by Sick Puppies – The instant this song started, I was in love with it. Sort of sad and angsty but with a rock background, it really spoke to me. The chorus rises nicely and I’m sure I’ll be adding this to the “angst” playlist on my iPod to be used when I write.

“Move Slowly” by Saosin – A rock song that feels like it will probably be a good driving song, this one is another favorite.

“The Elements” by Tom Lehrer – This one gets my vote simply because it makes me giggle every time I hear it. I just keep picturing when it was used on the show and I can’t help it.

Overall a pretty good album with a nice mix of musical styles to make nearly any NCIS fan happy. I highly recommend it to anyone who likes the show.
