Rundgren’s own latest album is called State and it
brings the long-time innovator into the modern scene full bore, with
energetic stabs at Electronica, Dub Step and Techno, with his unique
vocals and multi-layered/multi-instrumental arsenal thrown up against
the electronics to see what sticks.
Sometimes the side project eclipses the parent band; such is the case with Casey Crescenzo’s The Dear Hunter. Crescenzo formed The Dear Hunter in 2005 when he began
writing Alternative/Progressive Rock songs that didn’t fit the
Post-Hardcore mold of his primary outfit, The Receiving End of Sirens.
