Cat Sparacino
Resonating Body

The first record Cat Sparacino (her real name is Cynthia Sley) makes a couple of surprises on "Resonating Body". Her opening "The Eye" is a blazing yet meandering beast that would have been straight out of Gary Lucas's first Impulse! album. She does a couple of other sides however that are more intriguing. The "Legion Dead" track is a slow building stroller that feels like a reaction to the current political chaos in the US. It has two guitar comp pieces, one with vocals and the other with guitar riffs, interspersed with martial drumming. "Crowd Control" is a riff based jam that feels like a take on "How Do You Live Without Leaving A Trace" from Neil Young's 15th album. Cynthia Sparacino is also based in New York, but that's only interesting to me if she's a member of the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame. So there. That's all for now. See you next time.
