Your crusty chronicler is an individual who does his own thing. Still, when Examiner asked for support for their new “List” format, it was nigh impossible not to be open-minded about it. So, with the spirit of unity in mind, your rockin’ reviewer presents this series—“Track by Track” in which we review certain select CDs literally “track by track”.
This edition of the series we (ahem) examine Star Off Machine’s most recent release Wake Me Up. But before we peruse their second full-length release, a bit of background for those readers who missed my first piece on the band, Star Off Machine is a Southern California based rock band founded in 2007. (For those who are curious, the group’s moniker references the children’s book The Sneetches by Dr. Seuss.) The current line-up included: Erick Holloway (lead vocals), Robin Charlet (lead guitar and backing vocals), Greg “Tut” Tuthill (drums) and Aaron Wilder (bass).
