David Fagin, the founder of New York- based power-pop band The Rosenberg’s, shuns corporate sponsorship and comes correct with his first solo album. A little lighter than his past work, this may surprise, hopefully pleasantly, some devotees.

The Canon Logic
White Balloon E.P.
Tijuana Gift Shop Records
This three-song release barely qualifies as an E.P., and offers only a brief example of the band’s music, but the group has potential. The first song sounds like Weezer without the frat boy attitude. That’s odd since all the members are college students. Looking forward to the band’s next release.
4 out of 5 stars


Don’t Forget the Motor City
MVD Visual
This stunning three-disc set delves deep into the history of Motown with a collection of 100 videos detailing the wealth of contribution the genre made in music. While the DVD has some big names on it, remarkably it stays away from the “hit” performances that you can see almost any time on PBS.
