The Little Domain That Could (www.domaincleveland.com)

The new compilation from the promotions company DomainCleveland is the first installment of a planned trilogy. The Little Domain That Could offers a wide range of up-and-coming, mostly midwestern acts, from the idiosyncratic rock of Chicago's Tub Ring to the electronic-charged melodies of Cleveland's Racermason. Elsewhere, Finless Brown funks it up with choruses of women's vibrato surrounded by rapped verses, and Infinite Number of Sounds' laptop-and-guitars remix of "Emo Joe" gives way to slow-beat synth stars Furnace St. There's also a collaboration between members of Dog Fashion Disco, Drums & Tuba, and Faith No More, among others. Not surprisingly, the album suffers from its schizophrenic mishmash of styles -- which also goes to show the broad range of sounds captured here.
