CD Review: The Suede Brothers 

The Night (Bad Breaker)

This hard-rock trio puts on one of the area's best live shows, and on their third album, they've finally captured that powerful sound in the studio. Relentlessly heavy, the songs reflect the band's boundless energy: The opening "Coos Bay Boogie" boasts wailing voices and sludgy guitars that pound with intensity, while Dylan Francis' sneering vocals in "Prospect and 9th" suit the song's theme of finding a "whore" for the night. Tracks like "Omega Man" and "Forest City" feature great grooves — slightly sleazy and seductive, powered by riffs right out of the '70s (think heavy Cream). The title track even packs a nasty blues streak. Just as impressive: The Night was recorded in less than 36 hours, a credit to its immediacy and urgency. — Jeff Niesel
