In Big Trouble
Label: Moneytree Records
The synthesized backing tracks in Dave Rudolf's home studio get a workout on this low-key album. Rudolf's an emotive singer, whose songs tend towards bare-bones bar band style rock, a la Bruce Springsteen with a vaguely Caribbean sound reminiscent of Jimmy Buffet without the cheeseburgers. All the basics (brushing teeth, dirty diapers, etc.) are covered.
