 Rolling Stone Revisits The Loudness Wars
RollingStone.comRobert Levine has a story over at RollingStone.com about the continuing loudness wars, the limiting of dynamic range and what RS calls, "The Death Of High Fidelity."   It started in the CD era and continues in the iPod era, meaning that there is an entire generation of listeners out there who genuinely don't know what they are missing as far as sound is concerned.  Are you crushing the life out of your music in order to get that volume fix?  - Mitch

 MB Welcomes Gifthorse
The saying goes, "never look a gift horse in the mouth".  It's supposed to be bad form, but in this case you're going to find a whole lot more than a good set of teeth. Gifthorse is an odd band to come out of Detroit amidst a sea of hip-hop hucksters and garage rock wanna-bees, but imagine a careful blend of CSN, The Eagles, Bare Naked Ladies, Stone Temple Pilots and a dose of The Grateful Dead thrown in for good measure. That's a holiday recipe that will keep your innards warm while the cold wind blows down the Cass Corridor.  Definitely not a sound you'd expect to spring from the urban decay of po'town, but then considering how many people have already left Detroit,  nobody should be surprised it produced at least one "Tumbleweed" - which is the title of their debut album. There's some real good stuff here.  - Mitch

 Happy Christmas (War Is Over) ?
Graham Strachan, former lead singer of Robb Roy and current lead singer of National Ghost, just reminded us via e-mail that war is over / if you want it No, he's not referring to the apathy of American citizens when it comes to demanding accountability from their so-called leaders, he's referring to a cover version of Happy Christmas by John Lennon & Yoko Ono he recorded with Robb Roy & Friends a back in 2002 to benefit childhood cancer research.  The CD is no longer available, but you can still hear this rare recording on Graham's website.  Chris McCall lends her lovely voice to this track as well as Graham's three daughters.  There's other voices mixed in there too; in fact, if you listen very carefully you can hear yours truly warbling his way all the way through.  - Mitch

 MB Welcomes Wake Of Destruction
Wake Of DestructionI just finished watching the documentary No End In Sight about the disastrous post-invasion fiasco in Iraq that we're suffering to this day. Invading a country is easy, but occupying it turns out to be a tricky bitch. Anyway, when my attention finally shifted back to MB, I found it fitting that the next band we were to welcome was WAKE OF DESTRUCTION, a heavy-metal band out of Lapeer, Mi. There are other disturbing coincidences: both the re-construction of Iraq and Wake Of Destruction began in 2004 but didn't really get off the ground until 2007 (wait, did the re-construction of Iraq ever get off the ground?); both the Iraq War and WOD were conceived in a basement - one at The Pentagon and the other at guitarist Scott Warnke' house; Iraqis shed red on a daily basis and WOD played their first gig at The Red Shed in Caro, MI.  Do we really need any more proof that their time has come?  -  Mitch

 Music Review: Making Me Wonder by Lime Regal
Though I never received the disc I was told to expect from Lime Regal,  I was so anxious to get my ears on it I ponied up the cash and downloaded it from iTunes.  Now that the Lansing-incubated, Detroit-forged band is receiving attention from all quarters,  they probably don't need the support of little old MB.  But unpopularity has never stopped me from sharing my opinions about the local music I really dig. Lime Regal's six-song ep "Making Me Wonder" is definitely now on that list.
