Cantina
"' Horizons' EP
"
mp3

Cantina is the Italian word for "cellar," the dark and rather cold place where time, wood, air and silence magically transorfm tedious grape juice into inebriating, delicious wine. Cantina is also the name of Renata Zeiguer's growing musical project, a band so quiet that one could say it flirts with silence, and so charming and dreamy to sound magic. Their seven track debut EP 'Horizons' opens with airy ballad 'When Your Eyes,' that sounds like an irresistible siren call coming out of an old wooden gramophone, where a lush, acoustic arrangement slowly overwhelms a melody so pristine it could only be conceived in the the squalid corners of Bushwick. All we can gather from the lyrics is: "and if you ask me to..." - which is really all a siren should say to a hungover NYC-life sailor. The rest of the record offers similar atmospheres, althought at times more upbeat ('Stay Like This') and more electric ('Fields') but always dominated by Renata's celestial soprano and her otherworldly melodies, and well supported by an unobtrusive musical background that perfectly serves each song.

The new, grown up sound of The Mommyheads

The new, grown up sound of The Mommyheads

Its official: NYC and SF scenes staples The Mommyheads have grown up. I guess that should be expected from a band fast approaching the 15 year mark, I just never thought I’d hear such an introspective sound from the kings of the hard indie groove. Not that they’ve lost any of the power and special weirdness that makes Adam Cohen and company such an iconic indie institution.

For the band’s just-released full-length ‘Vulnerable Boy’ (Dromedary Records), the band returns full of the quirks and charm that come from a group on par with Guided by Voices’s decibel levels. But you’ll find plenty more happening here on closer inspection that’s not quite as expected. In their latest single ‘Medicine Show,’ Mommyheads reveal a glow that swirls around their haunting ruminations on the limits of words. The song acts as much as a title track for the record as anything, and serves as a centerpiece of their new attitude. For a band that’s been around the block more than a couple of times, Mommyheads still have quite a few tricks up their sleeves. - Mike Levine (@Goldnuggets)
