Rock & Pop, Seasonal Special Happenings

Obnox CD Release/The Fuzz/Royal Blood/Shitbox Jimmy

When: Fri., April 11, 9 p.m. 2014

Lamont Thomas has been busy. Under the name of Obnox, he has put out three albums and a bunch of EPs and singles in the past three years alone. The creative energy coming from this guy is indomitable, and that’s reflected on his latest, Louder Space. Grungy guitars and decisive percussion punctuate layers of rhythm-fueled grittiness in songs such as “Molecule,” “Who Needs You” and “Best Time of My Life.” Horns make their appearance in “Red I,” while “Mecca Son Shine” has an almost industrial feel, giving the whole album an eclectic sound. This multifarious collection of songs isn’t a scattered mess, though; where the sound varies in mood and texture, Thomas manages to keep it all tied together nicely. (Trenholme)
