“Reckless Abandon” is the first solo effort from NJ native and lifelong six-stringer Kenny Dubman, a veteran of 3 albums with NJ melodic rockers Prophet. Loaded with earthy, organic 70’s influenced hard rock, Reckless Abandon will most certainly fill a gaping void in today’s musical climate.
“I wanted to make a song record first; making a guitar record was never really part of the equation,” says Dubman, though guitar fans will likely want for nothing on this offering. Blending elements of Bad Company, Deep Purple, Kansas, and Lynyrd Skynyrd with subtle hints of Queen, Ozzy, Montrose, Pink Floyd, and Rush, Reckless Abandon pays homage to it’s 70’s rock roots while still forging an identity of its own….due in no small part to Dubman’s powerful, raspy vocal performances.
Lyrically, Reckless Abandon tackles some deep and dark subject matter; not much boy-meets-girl fare on this record. “I’m not sure where these song ideas came from; I feel like they were channeled through me rather than originated within….like I didn’t really write them. I think the great Tony Joe White sums this syndrome up best: ‘….the music is all given to me anyway. Writing and playing and doing music, not for the benefit of having a number one record, just to let it out of your soul, means somebody has fed it down to you.’ That’s right on the money”. Origin non-withstanding, Kenny Dubman has created (or channeled) something special on this record.

NYC-based anti-folk punk outfit American Anymen has announced they will release their new EP in mid-September. Called ‘Flag Burner’, this release addresses multiple contentious aspects of today’s governance and society, and the corrupt situation prevalent today in the echelons of power.
This is the band’s 12th album, following up on the band’s ‘Start My Center’ LP, which was produced by Jen Turner (Natalie Merchant, Here We Go Magic), also known for her involvement in recording Swans’ ‘The Glowing Man’. The band also recently explored their softer side on the recently-released ‘Oui’ EP, which entailed a collaboration with French songstress Lise. Both releases were critically acclaimed.
American Anymen was created in 1999 in NYC’s Lower East Side. With an unconventional approach to guitar, their sound is an eclectic mix of folk punk with indie rock and old-school hip-hop. With singer/songwriter and guitarist Brett Sullivan as its core, American Anymen’s current lineup also includes Joey Patches (drums and vocals), Scott Fragala (bass and keyboards), and Jen Turner (guitar and vocals).
Unique to American Anymen is the band’s strong political and ethical importance. While previous releases explore such issues as the downside of globalization, social injustice, police brutality, corruption and inequity, The new American Anymen release is their response to what has become known as Trump’s America.
“Flag Burner is a reaction to the fascist in the White House,” says American Anymen’s Brett Sullivan. “It was written with the idea that messages being subtly delivered in poetic lyrics were simply not enough in a Trump America. So the songs are blunt and literal. We have to speak out against these people, and the culture and rhetoric they promote. Locker room talk should not be their norm.”
‘Flag Burner’ is out as of September 15 and is available to stream from American Anymen’s Bandcamp.Post Views: 8
