New London Rocks!

Nice review by Eric R. Danton of local musical efforts in the Hartford Courant on Jan. 4:

"Various artists, "Towers of New London, Vol. 4: Eminent Domain" (Cosmodemonic Telegraph) - Connecticut's best rock scene shows why on this 30-song, two-disc collection of bands from the New London area. Contributions span a range of styles: There's old-school garage rock on the Reducers' "Yeh, Yeh Alright," shoe-gazer atmospherics on Low-Beam's "Pantastico," fiddle-laced roots music on the Can Kickers' "Johnny Walker," jug band-style "banjitar" on Hot Manouche's "Rocks" and brawny alt-rock on Ringers' "War Paint." This set is also beautifully packaged, with thorough liner notes and a short essay by Marko Fontaine, a DJ on WCNI-FM (90.9). Plenty of cities in this state are bigger, but none rocks harder than New London."

And congrats to Marko!
