Next, from Charlottesville, Virginia comes the self-titled release from The Can-Do Attitude. It features nine-tracks, beginning with the energetic, acoustic punk rock of "Good For You" and the swinging, rockabilly feel of "Modern Girl." The album continues with the raw folk appeal of "Make Some Money" and the reckless, punk-edginess of "Anonymous Son," before closing the album with the monotone delivery of "Popcorn" and the gentle acoustic instrumental "Good For Us (Reprise)."

From Chicago comes the sophomore release from garage/punk rockers Vamos. Their new album titled "1~2~3" features 14-tracks that play out like one complete piece of work, divided into three different chapters. Beginning with the sonic feedback of "1," the music really gets going with the up-tempo, energetic romp of "Outsiders" and the pounding drums and strumming guitars of "I Don't Care." After another short 40-second musical interlude, things kick back into high-gear with the steady climb of "Boring" and the raw, grunge-like tone of "Creeper." The third short musical piece, leads into the more classic hard rock approach of "Force Of Nature." Vamos closes out their new album with the reckless, punk-rock attack of "Do Wanna."

On the horizon is the new album from Bruce Forman titled "Junkyard Duo." It features 29, experimental tracks played on some uncommon instruments like suitcases and stuff found in the junkyard. The songs range in length from 45-seconds to just over two-minutes as the music has a jazzy feel. Listening to these tunes, you can really appreciate the work of Jake Reed and Jay Bellerose as they work with Bruce to expand their sound beyond the conventional instrumentation. One of album's longest tracks is "Tinder Lee," which has the band finding their way around, testing the different tones of each item. The album closes with the six-minute, Pink Floydian soundscape of "Whale I Needed Suite" as Bruce Forman finishes the album off with an instrumental piece that will leave you wanting more.
