Sometimes we see the dichotomy not just from game to game or inning to inning, but from at-bat to at-bat. I’ll get into Danny Salazar’s historically odd start much more later on, but the offense is not blameless in the Tribe’s less than optimal start to the season.

    Bill Lipold
    17 Apr 2014 | 10:09 am
    Although Record Store Day won’t celebrate its seventh birthday until Saturday, it’s already entering its awkward teenage phase. Some shop owners have become disillusioned with the glut of limited edition releases, especially those from major labels (I’m looking at you translucent Ghostbusters 12.”) Record store patrons complain about eBay flipping. It’s not uncommon to hear both groups compare the day to Black Friday. Yet, for all the kvetching, the stores will open early on Saturday, April 19th, and people will still be lined up for the opening of the doors.

      Now, this is a little better from Akron’s favorite sons. While “Fever,” the first track released from The Black Keys forthcoming album, Turn Blue (5.13 on Nonesuch), sounded like every track on El Camino, the duo’s commercial breakthrough and artistic hole of an album from 2011, the title track finds the boys stretching out a bit. The evenly pulsed bass and deliberately struck keys have a modern R&B sound about them. Listen closer, and there’s some space age gurgling going on deep in the mix. Dan Auerbach has brought back his finest falsetto, too. At…

      How, exactly, did Philadelphia band, The War on Drugs manage to sell out the Grog Shop on Saturday night? Many were curious, especially those who either had to scramble down their contact list to get in or were turned away at the door before show time. Sure, the abstract Americana of Adam Granduciel and hs mates has been highly rated by the influential website, Pitchfork, for a couple years now, and that helps. But as helpful Pitchfork can be at moving units and selling tickets for a young band, having the website’s backing, alone, doesn’t guarantee success. We’re in…

But put them in a corner bar and put jerseys on them and they could be sports fans. Put them in button down shirts, and they could be your co-workers.

      Now, this is more like it. Ever since Boris’ 2008, Smile, the Japanese hard-rock trio have been trying, sometimes successfully, often times not so much so, to streamline they’re genre-defying sound. The low point had to be the collaborative album with the Cult’s Ian Astbury. Half-baked doesn’t come close. 2011′s double release of Heavy Rocks and Attention Please wasn’t as displeasing, until you realize the band ended up combining the two albums into one months after their initial release. “Quicksilver” is Boris being Boris again.
