Recordings

Kaige's obvious affection for classic rock occasionally leads him to strain too hard for the grittiness of his mentors. Occasionally, as on the goofy "Space Cadet," he slips in and out of focus, a bit bombastic on the verses, but somehow more endearing on the catchy choruses, when the harmonies kick in. The Elvin Bishop-like (or is that Tom Scholz-like?) harmonized guitar solo at the end can't help but bring a smile to anyone who remembers a time before the Sex Pistols rendered such gestures anachronistic. More than any other song, "Space Cadet" epitomizes the tough balancing act that 68 Lo-Fi is working, and it's to the band's credit that it pulls it off more often than not.

--Gilbert Garcia
