    To make one (1) “”Wrecking Ball”” by Dead Confederate:
    Combine two parts stoner metal with one part hair metal.
    Add a dash of Southern Comfort.
    Stir slowly for 57 minutes or until mixture is consistent and heavy.
    Serve with coffee and zone out.
    Wrecking Ball, the debut album from Georgia’s local rockers Dead Confederate, is a slow, sludgy alternative rock cruise that surprises with flashes of hair metal grit and power ballads. The album is consistent, but forgettable – especially under the influence. Download “”The News Underneath”” and “”Heavy Petting”” for a better idea.

    She gets it.
    Lady Gaga can mix, rap or write anything she wants because at the end of the day, the New York native understands what it takes to make a great track. The Fame fits in as a well composed guilty pleasure, gussying up techno beats with fuzzy guitar grinds (“”Starstruck”” and “”Paper Gangsta””).
    Gaga taps into an internal beat that leaves the listener tapping her fingers and chanting saucy lyrics like “”I wanna take a ride on your disco stick”” on “”LoveGame.”” Don’t get caught in the
    grocery story singing to this album, but you’ll love every minute of it.
