Stocking stuffers

Spawn of Man, Metal with Kung-Fu Action

Straight out of the Entertainment Experiment stable, you can expect plenty of prog-metal love on this seven-song EP. Kris Milo is the big-voiced frontman and he does well shifting from high-pitched scream and menacing spoken word. Joe St. Pierre also does yeoman's work as the sole guitarist on an album that sounds louder than a single shredder.

The Townies, One for the Ditch

A reformation of sorts of early '90s locals Between Dreams, the Townies like their straight-ahead rock and roll with a tinge of melancholia. It's the radio rock that never got all kinds of heavy and alternative (though, at the time, was considered alternative for a little while). With songs about falling in love and playing rock and hanging out, this is comfortable and familiar stuff for people looking to nod their heads and sing along.
