Zombie Vs. Shark — Wunderkind/Dogs & Guns


Rock

Matt Carney
Norman’s Zombie vs. Shark embody a lot of the purest tenets of rock ’n’ roll, the foremost being the long-standing premise that loud, rude guitar music is one of the best, most fun ways of waggling a middle finger in the face of The Man.

CFN’s awfully harsh record review of the week


CFN

Gazette staff
“It’s so ‘down’ and so ‘jiggy,’ I swear they even rip off the damned Proclaimers with straight faces, and suffice it to say, leading forced-shout vocalist and bassist Tyson Ritter is no Johnny Depp/Buster Keaton. ... Did anyone mention the last decade is over now? They didn’t get that memo.”

Lips ‘lust’


CFN

Gazette staff
At this point, it’s almost more shocking when there’s not any nudity in a Flaming Lips music video. So the recently released video for “You Lust” — the sprawling, 13-minute centerpiece of the Oklahoma City band’s excellent new album, The Terror — is basically just par for the course.
