Black Ryno, mixed by Jason Cupp, is Danny Black’s 3rd solo album. Listeners will immediately hear a shift in musical style. The most noticeable is that there are no instrumental pieces. Danny is now the lead singer. Black reflects on the songwriting process: “I planned on making a heavier album with Ryno (Ryan Zimmaro) on drums and reaching out to singers to re-sing my ideas. Eventually, my placeholder vocals sounded good to me.” Fans of Good Old War will also enjoy a cameo appearance by frontman Keith Goodwin on the track Immoral Guidance. Zimmaro’s relentless, groove based drumming on the album is also notable. “Ryan and I only had to spend one day together. He came over and I recorded him playing beats off the top of his head. We had an absolute blast. He’s such an inspiring player that it was easy for me to write to.”

Danny Black is also the lead guitarist, and founding member of Good Old War, and is a touring guitarist with Josh Radin, Anthony Green, and more. Ryan "Ryno" Zimmaro also plays drums for Vacationer and Person L.

UMR - 000 / TL-105

Art Rock is a pretty broad term. Yet, when describing Providence, Rhode Island’s Roz & The Rice Cakes, the term Art Rock is not just appropriate, it’s dead center in terms of what they do and how they do it.

Under the stuttering time-changes, the crescendos and the complex arrangements, at the heart of these songs, there’s a simple pop quality that roots the band at a cross roads where Fleetwood Mac and Henry Cow mingle with Bettie Serveert and Gwen Stefani.

Roz & The Rice Cakes is equal parts experimental and catchy, energetic and bookish, daring and sugarcoated. This new album, Devotion is a sonic leap for the band. Roz Raskin from the band says: “Devotion was very different. We spent months working out the material, through multiple recording sessions at Big Nice Studio in RI with our good friend and engineer, and co-producer Bradford Krieger. This new writing process found us diving into a conceptual framework that explored the connections between humanity and the universe.”

If some of the sounds you hear on Devotion give you a cinematic sci-fi feeling, that’s not by chance. Roz continues: “Sonically we experimented with synthesizers and electronic drums, sounds that reflected a bigger story reminiscent of music that connected with our youth, music we grew up with. I have been a huge fan of sci-fi since I saw “The Thing” at age 5. The aesthetic of the supernatural and unknowns of science fiction and horror definitely have been absorbed in to this album.”

Subject wise, Devotion is a more personal album for the band, while at the same time staying consistent with some of the themes established by the album’s sonic qualities: “The record covers a wide range of subject matter in the human cosmos connection and is very much present in the current state of the world. ‘Do You’ unpacks the recent political climate and the complicit nature of silence and the long and painful history of marginalized peoples. ‘Somebody’ explores loneliness, a need for physical affection in the wake of heartbreak in the digital age. ‘NOVA’ discusses alcoholism and the need for escape. ‘East Coast’ examines the history of the world from the view of women, and watches civilization make the same mistakes again and again. “Revolving” unravels the affects of mass media production and absorption.”
