Coffinberry - God Dam Dog (Morphius)

Coffinberry start off by trying to knock you over, throw in a piano ballad and slowly build the aggression back up song by song. Influenced by everyone from the Afghan Whigs, Arcwelder, Hüsker Dü, Uncle Tupelo and June of 44, the strategy of keeping everything so short works to their benefit. The barely-two-minute "Earthworms in the Sun" sounds like it was written by Jeff Magnum while shooting speed and driving 100 miles per hour. While feel-good bands are all the rage, here is proof you don't always need a hug. - mark Released 05.01.2007

Black Rebel Motorcycle Club - Baby 81 (RCA)

BRMC's aptly titled song "Weapon of Choice" from their latest Baby 81 takes them to battle using sexy vocals, thick, distorted guitar riffs and sultry basslines. The guys' surprise attack comes from the heartbreakingly acoustic-based "Am I Only;" a track that taps into deep emotions and heartbreak. Veering between the edgy and uplifting Kinks-like "Berlin" and the orchestral, utterly depressing "All You Do is Talk," BRMC creates a varied, thrilling rocked-out album. It's totally hot. - miriam Released 05.01.2007

Haste the Day - Pressure the Hinges (Solid State/Tooth & Nail)

Haste the Day's first release with new lead vocalist Stephen Keech proves to be their most mature effort to date. Keech's effect on the band's sound is immediately apparent on the album's title track, "Pressure the Hinges." The album's song structure is more sophisticated, due in part to an improved balance in the interplay between melodic harmonies and guttural screams. However, with the exceptions of "Janet's Planet" and "Chorus of Angels," the production makes most of the other tracks sound too similar. - j.p. Released 03.20.2007

Remate - No Land Recordings (Acuarela)

No Land Recordings is a completely reimagined approach for Remate, whose last album was as direct a message from performer to listener as they come. The material here is the work of a reborn studio rat; scattered, but thematic and dreamlike. Twenty-five songs (and songlets) are spread the length of two discs, most every one indicating a refusal to compromise. You're either on board or you aren't, but few albums this conceptually sound will disappoint in the long run. If In the Aeroplane Over the Sea is your late night jam, consider giving this a spin. - paul Released 05.15.2007

The Rikters - Don't You Get It EP (self released)

The Rikters are back with Don't You Get It, a 7-song ep that flies by while listening to it and gets better every time. Guitarist/singer Doug Jenkins really shows off his voice on these songs, especially on "Want It You Got It." "You" is a flat out rocker and parts of "Give Me the Wheel" dabble in Radiohead territory. Great bass lines, sharp guitar and pounding drums are prevalent throughout this indie/power pop disc. With 2 eps under their belt, I'm hoping for a full length follow up that rocks as hard as this ep. - kyle j.

It's a reasonable question. The idea was born during our daily music chats, while discussing reviews we'd read. There was only one thing we consistently agreed on: they were too long. It seemed the point of how the music sounded and whether or not it was good was lost in an overlong mess of lyric quotes, personal accounts and a seemingly desperate attempt to fulfill a word count. Eventually someone said, "It's gotten to the point where if you can't say it in 75 words or less, you should shut the eff up". Within a week, 75orless.com was born. The best part about our limit is its reversal of typical music reviews. We limit the amount of words we use, and are not required to reach a number.

Welcoming electronic, hip-hop, indie, folk, punk, disco, pop, cock rock, math rock, brit pop, nu gaze, blues, garage, country, new new wave, rockabilly, idm, crust, techno, grindcore and all other music submissions. Where words with 2 letters or fewer do not count.
