CD Review: New Music From Underground Rockers Ferris And The Wheels And Fischer's Flicker

From Nashville comes the debut album from alternative rockers Ferris And The Wheels. The new six-song, self-titled release begins with the grunge-feel of "Stuck In This Dam Hole" as they bring together elements of punk, garage and classic rock to make a big sound. The music of "I Got Something" makes you stand up and take notice, while "Typical" has a "west coast" pop/rock sound. The album finishes up with "Found It," a swinging modern hard rocker that blazes a path of destruction with its fiery guitar solos.

Chicago band Fischer's Flicker recently released their second album "Fornever And Never" back in August. Band leader Scott Fischer has created some new, exciting rock music with a vintage seventies vibe. Beginning with the bright, Elton John-like pop of "Black Mariah," Fischer's Flicker has the potential to create some timeless sounding music. They take on a cover of Alice Cooper's "Halo Of Flies" with some success, but the mystical eeriness of Alice Cooper singing it is lost, while the music is spot on. They move on to the inviting big seventies rock of "Emoticons," before experimenting with their sound on the punk/polka delivery of "Mrs. Rogers (& The Land Of Make-Believe)." The new eight-song release closes with the ten-minute Steely Dan-like, funk-rock of "Fornever" and the acoustic strumming of "This Little Heart Of Mine."
