The Tomatoes

The Tomatoes play punk with a touch of grunge. The power trio's anthemic, fuzzed-out songs contain quiet verses and loud choruses. The lyrics contain backhanded vitriol and political imagery. A combination of razorblade guitars and psychedelia recalls early Nirvana.
Rock
The Public

Shoegazing dance-rock. Echo-drenched guitar leads cry over melodic bass lines to the strainings of a monotone singer. Distortion+The Smiths=The Public.

The Other Planets

Anthony Cuccia's The Other Planets is a instrumental jazz octet that puts samples from "Surfin U.S.A." and the Christian traditional "Amen" into the same song. Their sound is based on the risk-taking acid jazz of The Sun Ra Arkestra, while Frank Zappa’s irreverence for genre boundaries, sense of humor and political consciousness is alive in them. They jump from big band to reggae to classical in a moment’s notice, and they aren't afraid to mix a wailing guitar with a drop-heavy funk bass line and hip-hop beat.

Jazz
The Myrtles

The Myrtles' brand of country/indie pop is wonderful. They play emotionally heavy rock that is as intelligent as it is fun. Straightforward, classic-rock influenced pieces go up against songs with a guarded disposition and tortured vocals. The Myrtles' music is moving, rocking, and well-crafted.
Rock
The Buttons

The Buttons is a chord-oriented electronic dance music duo. Retro electro-funk, if you will. Trans Am without the rock. The music is repetitive. Robotic voices and thermin noodlings are standard. If you can't figure out how to dance to The Buttons, just do the robot.
Electronic Dance
The Geraniums

The Geraniums is a local rock quintet that plays sadcore music. It's beautiful in its sadness. The tone of the tunes depends on whether the lyrics bow to the weight of human existence or turn away in defiance or anger. The simplicity of the resigned numbers is haunting. For getting low or shaking your fist at the world.
Fist-Shaking Rock
The Happy Talk Band

The Happy Talk Band play heart-wrenching, mournful, country/rock/folk songs. They instigate knee-rockin' with well-crafted melodies and rock guitar solos. The mid-tempo numbers that have a pinch of punk are just as good as the trudging, depressing slow ones. Some songs are reminiscent of the "O Brother, Where Art Thou?" soundtrack, and others remind of Wilco.
