Music You Don't Know You Like Yet

TORONTOSAURUS REX

This Grand Rapids-based three-piece is Mitch Berrie on guitar, Tim Scogin on bass, and Joe Murray on drums. Their self-titled release goes from 80's-style new wave rock (Wedding) to more of a 90's-sounding shoe-gaze rock (Euphoria). The nicest ballad is probably the Psychedelic Furs-sounding "Mayfly". The best rocker would probably be "Interview" or the first song, "Curse of the Midwest". The 3/4 time "Maybe Even a Little Too Quiet" gives it a run for the money, though, with its quiet to loud sound. All in all, this is non-challenging, radio-friendly rock. Reviewed by Rebecca Ruth.
