Crave On is a heady band from Nashville playing rock n roll music.

Sax & Violence: Ambient Doom Jazz. Saxophone human, violin human, drum robot.

Jeremy Waun: Twenty-six-year-old Jeremy Waun grew up in rural Michigan, just outside Port Huron. He laughs easily, is cagily smart, plays in a bunch of bands, and gets by “merchandising flowers and tropical plants for a wholesale greenhouse.” I’m not sure what that means, but it sounds pretty hippy-ish. Waun says that “I feel real deal vibes and want to convey emotion through words and sounds,” when asked about searching for a guiding principle or philosophy. But that was such a hippie question, anyway!

Waun dresses in neon tie-dye, wears his hair long, and his first solo LP, the excellent and limited edition City Vibes, just released by Feeding Tube Records in Florence, Mass., is powered by acoustic guitar and his own voice, not really anything else. Sometimes he double-tracks on the vocals, and he’s not afraid to let both the guitar and the vocals get deeply in the red. So there’s a lot of distortion, but it’s a mellow record, which is a swell dichotomy. His last tape was called Nu Metal Guru, because having a sense of humor is important. [Detroit Metro Times]
