It seems as if every band on the planet has released a remix disc
lately, Colony 5 is no exception with their remix version of last
years Fixed, entitled Refixed. It’s rare that a band releases a remix
disc that’s actually better than the original version, but with
Refixed the Canadian duo has definitely outdone themselves. Songs like
Plastic World and Big Brothel have a new found depth to them that
surpasses the originals. Kick ass production add to soul and depth to
the smooth mellow vox on tracks like Fusion and add more venom to
Psycho Blonde. So if you enjoyed Fixed you’re going to love Refixed

Listening to Cylabâ??s Unparallel Universe is like cinching into your favorite corset. The dark rhythms wrapping themselves around your body making you feel sexy and powerful as they move you across the dance floor. A blend of all genres dark and lovely this disc breaks through musical boundaries questioning them and working them into new vistas. Pulsating eerie beats and sexy sweet vox glide over you like liquid night with tracks like Musicbox and Maze you can hardly go wrong with this one. Check out http://www.myspace.com/cylabband for tour dates, more info, music samples and where to get the disc believe me you wont be disappointed when you do.
Trying to describe The Love Drunks is like trying to describe a piece of abstract art. Their music straddles the line between punk, garage and blues and you never know where the guys are going to take you next. Their self titled disc gives the listener a feeling of reckless abandon. There is a definite feeling that these guys will try to incorporate just about any kind of musical style that doesnâ??t suck. Tunes like John Hutcherson Rag make you want to try a bit of a hoe down with its upbeat blend of blues country and rag. The band also has one of the most interesting vocalists to come around in a while. Screams mix with vocal riffs that almost sound like Elvis on Meth with deep lows and a little hubba hubba thrown in for good measure. While tracks like Women and Livin (Dirty Bits) and Lindbergh Baby tell stories of love lust and self destruction under the guise of caring. This one is a for sure good time that will rock your socks.

God Bless the Electro Freak is the latest from San Franciscoâ??s Turn Me On Dead Man. The dreamy psychedelic tunes on this disc are probably best enjoyed sitting in a dark room with your eyes closed allowing the band to take you on a sonic mind trip. Mind altering grooves run through your body and mind with tracks like the hauntingly soothing Take a Stress Pill and Mysterious Ride. One of the coolest things about this disc is the brilliant job they do of translating the incredible energy of their live shows onto wax. Killer Sound Waves from space and Silky Milky Way are perfect examples of the energy that these guys are capable of generating
