It List: Tuesday
Caw Caw/Sydney Confirm/Rival Gang (Rubber Gloves): A critical blurb on Caw Caw's page described the group with the never-asked rhetorical query "what-if-Radiohead-were-a-punk-band," which is one of the worst descriptions I've read in some time. Despite that confusing explanation, tonight you have one indie pop band, one dance pop band, and one tasteless trio of gender-benders that play something actually resembling punk, no Radiohead necessary.
Digable Planets/Strange Fruit Project (The Granada): I don't remember Digable Planets being as well-regarded as The Jungle Brothers or De La Soul, but I guess Blowout Comb is considered something of a masterpiece from that era, judging from the way you still see it's rather literal cover imagery anywhere that DP is mentioned. Strange Fruit Project is from Waco and has collaborated with Ghostface Killah, which is just about the best thing I've ever heard of happening to anyone from Waco.
Fromholz/Carl Naylor (Dan's Silver Leaf): I know Fromholz is a "Texas Legend" and the "Texas Poet Laureate," but man, that one record where he's standing on the mountain is the scourge of Half Price Books overstock bins all over the state. At least that means a lot of people bought it.
