Decade

Clifton Anderson
DOXY/EMARCY

Clifton Anderson is Sonny Rollins’s nephew and longtime trombonist. While his new CD is titled Decade, representing the years since his last solo recording, the keyword is swing.

Cheerleader

The Odds
SECOND MOTION

The recently reunited Odds instantly invite comparisons with Sloan but pack neither Sloan’s walloping punch nor their endearing shagginess.

Music-CD-dmawl.jpg

Get Guilty

A.C. Newman
MATADOR

The Mountain

Heartless Bastards
FAT POSSUM

I’m on the record about Ohio: I don’t like going there, I don’t like to watch OSU play and I definitely don’t like 98 Degrees (Cincy natives, the lot).
