Alternative/Indie Rock

The long awaited, sophomore long player from the Southeastern Michigan-based outfit, Electric Company sees Starling Electric retrofitting their Baroque-pop finery in order to make room for some newly amassed power pop muscle. There's not a note wasted, nor is there a sonic nodule left unexplored.

We Told You Not to Cross Us

February 25, 1997

Punk

A set of monophonic blues-punk so raw it could give you trichinosis, the Revelators' first and finest album, 1997's We Told You Not To Cross Us, is a Dixie-fried blast of heart, soul, and bad attitude. Build around the wailing guitar of John Schooley, the unrelenting drumming of Mark Walters, and blast-furnace vocals of Jeremiah Kidwell, this is one of the rare examples of a band sounding even more dangerous than they probably intended.
