Mutantspaceboy, Josh Damigo, and the Turtle Project

Artist: Mutantspaceboy
Song: “Lost in Time” (from the CD Mutantspaceboy)
Heard By: Rob Scheuch, Mission Hills
I thought it was very different. It was mostly synthesizers. It started out really slow and then progressively picked up and got into a little jazz-fusion. It kind of reminded me of Pink Floyd’s early days and then it went totally somewhere else. There was a guitar jamming in the background with a bass line going. It had a nice groove to it. It seemed like they were having a good time. There were no vocals; it was an instrumental. You could tell it was all programmed — maybe on a MIDI keyboard. I could see that on a commercial or maybe on the closing credits of a sitcom. It’s like background music but in a good way.

Artist: Josh Damigo
Song: “Pocket Change” (from the CD Raw)
Heard By: Cathy Slater, Little Italy
I really liked it. It kind of reminded me of Jack Johnson. It’s chill music; very laid-back. Acoustic guitar was pretty much all I heard. I was kind of zoning out on [the lyrics], to be perfectly honest, but it was good — I would buy his CD. He was a pretty good musician. I’m not sure if he’d have big commercial success. I liked it enough, but I don’t know if the masses would. To me, it’s very good music for hanging out with friends. If I was at a bar and he was performing, it would be good background music. I would give him an 8 out of 10 — two thumbs up.

Artist: The Turtle Project
Song: “Angeline” (from the CD single “Angeline”)
Heard By: Carrie Mangum, Mission Hills
I liked it. It reminded me of Pete Yorn at first, and then the beat picked up and it reminded me more of Incubus. Some of the lyrics on the chorus were on the depressing side. That’s probably where it reminded me of Pete Yorn. It was pretty standard rock; nothing out of the ordinary. I could see that song getting radio airplay. I’m a big fan of 94.9, and I know they pump up the local scene, so I could see them taking a shot with [the Turtle Project]. It’s definitely on the mellow side, so it might be [something I’d listen to] on the weekend if I’m just hanging out at home. I’d give it a 7.5 out of 10.
