Mad Anthony: No reinvention of the wheel by this hard-working Cincinnati band, but damn if it’s not impossible to ignore. The combination of classic rock riffs, vaguely Danzig-like vocals, and songs about girls and drinking may not sound very enticing for jaded underground fans, but balls-out playing, over-the-top emotion, and an undercurrent of menace make it worth the once-over twice. And once you’ve listened twice, you’re hooked. Dammit. http://madanthony.bandcamp.com/
The Motorz: Madison power pop that delivers odes to girls, cars and the redemptive power of rock 'n' roll. Superb song-writing craft draped in Beatles, Raspberries, KISS, and Cheap Trick influences. Diggit.
