This local trio has been a fiery live attraction for years, and though its members are hardly celebrities they've got solid credentials -- guitarist and front man Andy Hopkins has worked with Andrew Bird, for instance, and drummer Mike Bulington also plays in Grimble Grumble and Clyde Federal and bassist Geoff Greenberg has played with the likes of Husker Dudes and Andy Pratt. But after two albums I'd begun to despair of them ever capturing their blend of slow-hand soul, sexy glam, and old-fashioned hard rock on disc. Their new DUTY, though--now that's the goods. Producer Mike Lust doesn't wipe any of the garage grease or barbecue drippings from the sweet ballads and rowdy stompers, and "Duty .. 2" spends a long layover in the designated smoking area at Funkytown International Airport

All original heavy quartet, ALMA NEGRA, consisting of Greg Hamilton (Blasted Diplomats, Fast Product, Big Buildings,) Erin Armstrong (Nones), Geoff Atkinson (Telenovela, Pyrite, Peralta), and Ivan Cruz (Yakuza) team up to drop some bass, rattle ear drums, and make some noise. Screamale vocals, dualing guitars, moog synths, bass and drums bode well for fans of metal, pysch, and punk. Earplugs recommended.
