Trashcan Sinatras “Best of Trashcan Sinatras (1990-2010 Radio Sampler)”

February 27, 2011

Little bits of everything. You may know some of these songs. “Only Tongue Can Tell” inspired the Muffs, melodywise, when they wrote “Sad Tomorrow.” But crack open a Zima and enjoy some of these power pop classics.
“The Best Man’s Fall” has beautiful backing harmony. “Hayfever” doesn’t make me sneeze. The chorus, however, is full of hooks, just like many of their piercing-laced fans back in the proverbial day.
For a snapshot of the mid-’90s sound, look no further than “The Genius I Was.” “Welcome Back” is a bit more upbeat and sounds like a peppier Chris Isaak song. (They do exist, promise.)
If a slower ballad is what you’re looking for, “Weightlifting” is half Gin Blossoms, half Better Than Ezra. “I Wish You’d Met Her” has a more modern feel, and if you do like me and put the album on repeat, you get quite a contrast when it loops back to “Only Tongue Can Tell” again. But the common thread among all the tracks is a smooth sound that makes you happy to be alive. Unless you’re a zombie.

Trashcan Sinatras “In the Music”

January 30, 2011

I’ve been hearing about this band for almost 20 years, but I’ve never actually heard them. Like the Replacements, they seem to have always been on the cusp of recognition but instead have likely been relegated to working at Philz.
“People” sounds like the theme to a TV show. Like if Becky and Darlene from Roseanne had a spinoff in which they create a rock band called Mika Miko. This would be the theme. “I Hung My Harp Upon the Willows” sings about a guy named Richard Brown, so maybe it is about the old anchor for Channel 7 news. You never know, right?
“Should I Pray” features Carly Simon on vocals, a pleasant surprise if you weren’t expecting it. Frank Reader is so vain. He probably thought this song was about him. “The Engine” sounds like a Coldplay song that doesn’t suck. It was bound to happen, but who knew that it would be Trashcan Sinatras that would have to do it?
The last eight tracks are live versions of more of their songs. “Send for Henny” has Eddi Reader on vocals, and my thinking is that it must be Frank’s wife. Maybe Henny is their dog. “Easy Read” is kind of neat because the lead singer rolls his R’s.
A fun CD to experiment with, because they’re all pretty good.
