"San Diego is Burning"

4 stars out of 4 -- San Diego is Burning Review

Feel alone? Lost? Isolated from music-industry meccas like Los Angeles and New York City? Can't seem to connect with local bands you like? Despair at being stuck in the bottom corner of the Left Coast? We have just the compilation for you. ...

If you suffer from the symptoms listed above, Loud+Clear Records can give you the help that you need. Dial in "San Diego Is Burning" (Loud+Clear Records), a compilation of local bands released in April.

Beginning with the bombastic "Double Barrel Breakfast Cereal" from Comfortable for You (formerly Prizefight), the 19-track disc's strength lies in its diversity. Sonic pastiche, blurry guitars dominate Kill Me Tomorrow's "Xerox My Hand," while bouncy oom-pah-pah tuba balladry and singing saws ooze from Black Heart Procession's "From the Shores of a Washed Up Heart." The album also packs two songs from the No Knife camp: a cool remix of "Riot for Romance!" (which comes off sounding a bit like the Cure's classic "Mixed Up" album) and a sweet acoustic solo track by Ryan Ferguson titled "Wait for Me There."

All in all, "San Diego Is Burning" serves as a road map to San Diego's punk and indie-rock bands. And the best thing: Even if you don't like the music, half the profits go to a good cause. Fifty percent of the compilation's proceeds benefit the San Diego Humane Society. Your purchase supports local music and helps the Humane Society give aid to the area's animals. You too could help kitties and puppies. For just a one-time fee of $5.99 (plus tax), you get much, much more than just a CD.

Feeling a bit camera shy


Commonly compared to the thrashing, dynamic rock of Drive Like Jehu (also San Diegans), Fugazi and Refused, COMFORTABLE FOR YOU crafts a dynamic rock performance that will soothe you one minute and assault you with a lead pipe the next. The band plays guitar-powered indie-core with a punk attitude, intense vocals and driving rhythm.

Brothers Tom and Steve Peart make their connection musically and fuse the animalistic violence of punk with the scarring grooves of good ol' rock 'n' roll. Every time Comfortable for you plays, they become one of those "have you heard" bands.

Don’t expect any bullshit here. With a straightforward approach to crafting driving tunes, COMFORTABLE FOR YOU’s debut full length will fill a void in even the most jaded listener’s music collection.
