"CD Review: Inglewood, Rattus Magnanimous"

Rattus Magnanimous, the latest EP by Inglewood, is further evidence the group can be considered Middle Tennessee’s newest comfort band.

From the party-driven funk of “Everybody Everywhere” to the luminous “Sunshine,” this collection of seven original three-minute pop/rock tunes can be a comfort to anyone, in any mood.

Invoking Weezer and some of the more happy-go-lucky material of the Red Hot Chili Peppers, this three-piece will make “Bumpin’ Inglewood music” the thing to do whether cruisin’ on a sunny day or winding down after a late night party. These guys know what it takes to make good music while having a blast.

Nashville-based Spat! Records, also working with other area pop and punk acts such as My Epiphany, Dharmakaya, Vesta Rose, The Pink Spiders, PigDog and others, released Rattus Magnanimous and its blend of indie rock, reggae, teen pop, funk and hip-hop.

The record’s tender opening track, “Heart Strings,” features melodic, catchy vocal movement. This leads to the refreshing “Everybody Everywhere,” which has hit single written all over it. The song progresses from the smooth and funky start to a solid, polished chorus, given some depth with an organ (one of the record’s few strayings from the standard drums, bass, guitar and vox mix) to a funky, driving climax featuring lead singer Colbs claiming “Inglewood is gonna funk your socks off,” while the music backs him up.

Inglewood has actually been known to have socks thrown at them onstage. Now, some bands have been popular for girls casting undergarments at them--but this just takes rock to a whole new level!

The ending jam on “Like the Sun” really punctuates the record while the hip-hop flavored “Fly U Anywhere” is more a brief comic relief than a gritty portrayal of the young men’s gangsta tendencies, but congratulations to the band for trying something unexpected on the CD’s final offering.

Overall, the material on the disk, though not overly complex, is tasteful, tight and fun with smooth melodies and displays some nice vocal power and feeling. The guys rarely dwell on a part too long and keep things interesting with frequent passage changes, leaving the listener wanting more.

Looking for a good time? Catch Inglewood on Saturday, March 1, at Wall Street Bar and Grill before the band heads out west later in the month for a handful of gigs.

"Inglewood - Rattus Magnanimous"

He, he, he, these guys are funny. Couldn't make any sense of their bio, but they’re a bunch of funny goofballs who actually make great music in the early grunge vein. Before I say more one of the guys in the band, Travis Colby (he’s one of three but which one is never indicated: Very annoying) was in a car crash (were you drunk, Travis?) back in his HS days; crushed his pelvis, fractured both femurs (ouch!!!) and scared his face and body. How punk rock is that??? Not only that, but Harmony Korine (he wrote Kids and wrote and directed Gummo, the film with the MS kids in it) stole his girlfriend. I thought was funny for two reasons: a) I thought Korine was gay and b) the guy’s career as a writer is finished. But Inglewood (like, Disneyland, hahaha) are just getting started.

A tight, smartly produced, progressive pop, 7-song EP with a great title (I love that title). It is a bit on the goofy side that can ruin its sincerity, but there are great/genius musical changes and moments here - some mid-tune - reminiscent of Steve Miller (yeah the 70s) in certain places. Okay, I borrowed that from the release, but it’s true. Other than that we have a imaginative drummer, fine lead guitar in and better than decent bass fill.

I think if Inglewood got a little more serious with a tad more discipline; sought professional representation they could seriously get there. They have the goods just not the seriousness - but they’re kids: 20 probably. Don’t piss this great-in-the-making band away. I’ll keep this one. Worthy of a download. - Left Hip Magazine

"Inglewood: Rattus Magnanimous EP"

Tennessee indie band Inglewood bring a taste of melodic jazz-fused indie rock with hints of the Red Hot Chili Peppers and Everclear on their latest EP Rattus Magnanimous

There’s a fine line between cool and pompous. Tennessee indie band Inglewood treads that line and manages to do just enough to stay on the cool side. With their latest EP Rattus Magnanimous, Inglewood has crafted a fine mix of rock cool with hip-hop beats and rap attitude.

Featuring the vocals of main man Colbs and drummer Mike, as well as Seth on the bass, Inglewood isn’t a band that you’d immediately think of when picturing the latest next big thing on the indie scene. They look too much like the kids that got picked last for the college soccer team – yet this suits them and their music, since one thing Inglewood will never be accused of is trying to be popular for popularity’s sake.

Nashville's Inglewood exhibit some traces of jam band-friendly funk in their appealing pop rock songcraft, but they also display some Jeff Buckley-like influences in their melodic approach. Their new album, Rattus Magnanimous, is something to look for in 2008. - Nashville Rage

They all met in middle school. Kind of boring. Here are some interesting stories....
One night after a high school party, Colby fell asleep at the wheel and nearly died. He crushed his pelvis, fractured both legs (femurs), and scarred his face and body. This, along with getting his girlfriend of 2 years stolen by "KIDS" and "GUMMO" writer Harmony Korine made him sink into a downheartedness in which he gathered much inspiration and character. Also, 2 DUIs and a month and a half in jail will make you appreciate life a little more. Mike got attacked by seagulls who shat all over him at the tender age of 6. And at 8, his dad killed his pet rooster. Donny likes to play shows in nothing but glitter and underwear.
