"Garcia and Simmons have a nifty way of grafting hooky, electronically modulated choruses over lean but propulsive tracks. The combination seems to evoke a hundred different pop genres while obliterating all of them." — Jimmy Fowler, FW Weekly Music can be as much about a state of mind as a mode of expression, something of which Stereo Control appears to have a firm grasp. - Preston Jones, DFW.com La Guerre La Guerre is the nom de plume of Katlyn Conroy, a Lawrence musician and former member of the much-loved and -missed group Cowboy Indian Bear. “Sapphires” is her second full-length album on The Record Machine, a Kansas City label. On her Bandcamp page, Conroy aptly calls herself a “pop electronic folk singer songwriter.”. “Sapphires” is a collection of songs that are accessible and appealing upon first listen — catchy and inventive — but not predictable. And it feels more organic than electronic. Joshua Browning, part of her studio band, produced and engineered an album that is both warm and invigorating. On “Sapphires,” Conroy has rendered a collection of intimate songs in a voice all her own, one that lives up to its luminous title. – Timothy Finn w/The Kansas City Star Signals and Alibis The music made by Fort Worth duo Signals & Alibis ( Rebecca Jozwiak and Brian Carter) is deceptively spare. Upon repeated listens, the carefully assembled layers begin to reveal themselves, fleshing out these austere compositions that defy simple categorization (indeed, the band’s Bandcamp page tags these tracks as “post-punk,” “shoegaze” and “alternative”). Jozwiak, who sings and plays drums and melodica, has a haunting vocal quality that lays against Carter’s languid guitar playing in a way that makes a listener lean closer to the speakers. From chilly opener Eastern Parallel through to the sinister Blue, Signals & Alibis commands attention and makes its marks as a local act worth keeping tabs on. ~ Preston Jones for DFW.com
