- Riot Now! by Eleventh Dream Day
Never relly paid much attention to Eleventh Dream Day but I'm the resident Thrill Jockey reviewer so I gotsta come up with some talk for you. These lads have been at it for a ridiculous 25 years with this being there tenth studio album! They play what now sounds like a classic form of American Indie Rock informed by the whole Chicago punk and underground scene. I don't know their stuff but this sounds decent and I'm sure in their heyday they we're a mighty force to be reckoned with. I really like the almost atonal vocal style of Rick Rizzo (who incidentally has a new record out with Tara Key (Antietam) entitled 'Double Star') against Janet Beveridge Bean's equally as strange shouty style. They make a great team! Musically they remind me of so many things (psych, grunge, indie-rock, college rock, new wave, post-punk etc) yet it's fundamentally just good American rock 'n' Roll played purely for the sake of rocking out. Kinda like Afghan Wigs or one of them lads. Pleased I noticed Douglas McCombs (Tortoise, Pullman etc) involvement and guest appearances from Jim Elkington (The Zincs) and Sally Timms (The Mekons) sweeten the deal.... good crew.
