Radio 104.1’s Spring Fling (live music review)

Radio 104.1’s Spring Fling made its triumphant return on March 30th at the XL Center, delivering a smorgasbord of alt-rock acts like Cage The Elephant, Silversun Pickups, Foals, and Bear Hands. Each band dominated the night with their own flavors of rock while amazing audiences in the process.

The first band to start off a multi-act concert is always a tough gig, but Bear Hands were a great choice for an opener as they kicked off the night successfully with a tight set featuring high doses of loud guitars and synths. Fun fact: two members of the band met at Wesleyan!

U.K. band Foals played next, delivering a screeching lineup of ceiling reaching songs that were meant to be played in spacious arenas. The band surprised me with their ability to be danceable and intelligent, chaotic and melodic, subtle and monstrous. The mesmerizing light show mixed with the grandiosity of their sound sent me to another place.

Silversun Pickups are veterans of the game at this point, with a sizable number of popular songs to their name. They have been consistently compared to the Smashing Pumpkins and that band’s touch reigned supreme over their set Wednesday night, mixed in with some of the guitar heaviness of My Bloody Valentine and the genre-bending abilities of the Pixies. It’s what the Pickups do with these influences that make their sound special, and it was apparent from the crowd’s reaction to “Lazy Eye” and “Cradle” that it works quite well.


Cage the Elephant headlined the whole event, and they definitely delivered when their time finally arrived with a vibrant and inspired performance. Frontman Matt Shultz worked the crowd like a madman, echoing the spirits of Mick Jagger and Iggy Pop. Much like the Silversun Pickups, they played hit after hit. It’s surprising how for a band with a short career thus far how many mainstream rock singles they have already accumulated. When they played “Ain’t No Rest For The Wicked” they sent the XL Center into pandemonium.

All in all, the concert was a great night filled with rock. What more can you ask for?

Lightnin’ Slim
High and Low Down
Lightnin Slim High and Low Down(Alive)
Born on a farm outside St. Louis in 1913, Lightnin’ Slim developed his career as a blues singer-songwriter and guitarist after moving to Baton Rouge, Louisiana as a teenager. His intense vocals coupled with skillful rhythm guitar work made him the perfect fit for the swamp blues sound, influencing artists such as Captain Beefheart and Swamp Dogg. After taking a sabbatical to work at a Michigan foundry, he was coaxed back to return to the studio in the seventies. Recorded in Alabama in 1971 (only three years before Slim died of cancer), High and Low Down includes both re-worked songs and covers, with backing instrumentation (including a horn ensemble) fleshing out the sound.

Half Japanese Overjoyed
half japanese overjoyed(Joyful Noise)
Formed in the mid-70s by brothers Jad and David Fair, Half Japanese has proven to be influential over the decades with truly unconventional, unrefined and unique art-punk. The production on Overjoyed is cleaner than their previous lo-fi work, but they maintain their nature of ignoring the rules of traditional rock structure (the blissful, bouncy power-pop tune “Our Love” serves as a more straightforward exception.)

Dr. Dog 3/8 at College Street Music Hall in New Haven (Show review.)
DrDog3-8-16CollegeStMusicHallThe Dogs are back!
Oh Dr. Dog, that blissful indie rag tag group of disciples of the Beatles and the Beach Boys with their classic pop formulas, may you forever run. They keep the dreams of those 60’s bands alive with madly catchy guitars and walls of pristine heavenly vocals that pepper listener’s hearts. While nothing they make is truly original, it’s refreshing to hear a band today in this age of EDM overload that consist of actual drums and guitars.

Now with their 9th album just released (The Psychedelic Swamp), Dr. Dog now have a considerable amount of songs to their name. Starting off with their whispery lo-fi Swamp Fever debut, each further release refined their sound into the insanely catchy riff machine they are now. Going into the show I was curious as to what songs they would play tonight. Would they just stick to a set dedicated to their new album or reach through their pockets of never ending tunes for old gems and fan favorites? Walking onto the College Street stage all wearing sunglasses, their retro themed backdrop and throwback lighting casted them like heroes from the 80’s. They immediately launched into space with a shimmering, spellbinding song off of their new LP and continued playing selections from it. Eventually they deviated and started reaching into their grab bag of songs of their 17 year career with a couple of favorites from most of their records.

It was a treat to see them play a couple of songs from their Fate album (my favorite of theirs) and everyone shut up when Connor played “The Breeze”, a soul searching ethereal ode to making snow angels in the snow and remembering to take the time once in a while to slow down in life. The new addition of a jangly electric guitar to the mainly acoustic ditty made it sparkle even more in everyone’s hearts. I was actually surprised to see so many Dr. Dog enthusiasts at the show; it seemed like everyone knew the words to all of their songs and never grew tired of moving their bodies to try and keep pace with the chugging guitar that kept truckin’ on.

The band was clearly having fun on stage. Co-leader Scott McMicken was zipping back and forth across the stage like it was some kind of dance while delivering ripping solos that sent fans wide eyed with wonder. Listening to their albums of poppy delights you wouldn’t expect them to be a loud experience live, but boy, do they bring it with howling songs that reverberate throughout the spaces of the venue and spaces of your being. I’m still itching for an album where they capture their live fury and translate it to record successfully.
Right before ending the show the band mentioned how it’s been too long since their last show in 2009 and how they would try to get back here as soon as possible. Let’s hope so! Life is so much better with a little Dr. Dog action in it.
