Ava Mendoza Shadow Stories Resipiscent stories told by means not of the human voice but of the electric guitar in its many manifestations and moods, from the conversational pace of "The Tennessee Waltz" that also appears on "The Furious Harpy..." but then mutates into far less friendly shrieks and moans later on in the very same tune; whether through the use of standard blues riffs (think Skip James, Leadbelly), echoing feedback and/or cataclysmic distortion, looping sound collages, or darkly glowering sonic utterances of tough love, Mendoza reaches out to you, the listener, and keeps you keenly attentive to the turn of each page of every story told

The Pleasure Kills Dancing on My Bed EP Polypore Records a quirky garage rock/pop offering from a band headed by the peppy vocalist who calls herself Lydiot and featuring a retro feel with a heavy dose of Farfisa organ; playfully edgy but not belligerent (even featuring a 1974 Arrows cover penned by the famed pop team of Mike Chapman and Nicky Chinn; Joan Jett covered another Arrows tune we all know as "I Love Rock 'n' Roll"), the tunes on this EP latch on to your innermost pop cravings and don't let go
