The Reigning Sound/Brian Olive/Stupidity/DJs Alright & Mr. Fishtruck

When: Sun., Oct. 26 2014

For the Reigning Sound’s Greg Cartwright, 42, music has been not only a career, but a lifestyle that he’s wholeheartedly pursued his entire life. Cartwright and his bandmates navigate the special challenge of recording on an eight-track, one-inch recorder for their latest work, Shattered. The album has received overwhelming positive reviews; it’s yet another well-received release to add to the dozens upon dozens of recordings that songsmith and garage rock veteran Greg Cartwright has tucked neatly under his belt. The album moves with a sort of looseness totally devoid of pretension, sounding more like something Cartwright dug from the depths of his personal R&B record collection than something recorded by a couple of guys in a seasoned garage rock band in 2014. "Baby It's Too Late" is rich with delectable organ while "Never Coming Home" sighs with longing and love lost. (Emily Votaw)
