Jeff Caudill

Try to be Here

Rising from the remains of the pop-punkers Gameface, Jeff Caudill heads out on the road by himself on this trip. Well, not exactly. He does the consistency of the producing and also being the drummer for this project. Also involved is none other than Robbie Rist (yes-“Oliver” from The Brady Bunch!) Check out YouTube for a funny clip of Robbie destroying his image so to speak. But the songs are what we really need to veer back to here. Real stories are being told here, about broken lives and buried dreams. “Stay Home” offers up a nice groove and some pleasant piano over Jeff’s singing. “Spend” brings a bit more rock into the equation with good effect. My favorite here is “I was the Lead Singer” where he looks back on his past with longing and maybe a bit of sadness. The best confessional type tune about being in a band since Slim Dunlap’s “The Ballad of the Opening Band.” Give this a shot if that sounds like it’s in your realm of enjoyment. I know it entered mine.

Barren Womb can hardly be accused of stagnation. Lizard Lounge, the fourth album by this hard working two-man band is again an interesting step further down the road. The band once ...
