Few high points for Midwestern bands this week. You may have noticed many new releases have graced us.
• Cincinnati's Cari Clara is set to hold it's first EP release "You Better Run" show tonight (8/31) at the Madison Theatre.
• Columbus, Ohio's Red Dahlia is busy working towards it's sophomore release, produced by Jeff Ciampa. The group has a decidedly 90s synth rock feel, with an amazing female singer.
• Athens, then Columbus Ohio band Black Coin is making the big leap to Los Angeles. The group has "coined" it's own version of indie rock reggae over the years. Very interesting take on the genre. It's probably a good idea for them to go somewhere that actually has a beach for that type of music. But Ohio loses another...
• Columbus, Ohio's Main Street Gospel currently has new tunes up for listening pleasure. The group - and it's 6'8" front man - will wow you with its guitar-based psychedelic blues.
• Another Columbus, OH. band Miranda Sound is reportedly back in the studio recording, correct me if I'm wrong, it's fourth CD. This time they are back with Jon Chinn at Workbook Studio.
• Indiana's Everything, Now! is apparently going to release one song a day from its second CD summer release "Ugly Magic" until their tour begins on Sept. 14.
