Two of Cincinnati's most likely next-big-thing contenders, All the Day Holiday and Pomegranates spent 2009 working superb new records. ATDH's lush Dream Pop was introduced to the world via 'All the Things We've Grown to Love,' their stunning debut for Linc Star/Warner Brothers, while the Poms continued their underground surge with the magical 'Everybody, Come Outside!' (which also saw release in the U.K.) on Lujo Records.

Early fall is starting to shape up as "music festival" time in Cincinnati. After another spectacular MidPoint Music Festival, you'd think folks might want some down time. Instead, they have plenty more "fest" choices this weekend: Popopolis, Clifton Heights Music Festival, Pharaohfest and a Jake Speed-led tribute to Woody Guthrie.

When Pomegranates released their 2008 debut album, it was the culmination of a number of significant advances in a relatively short time. Within months of forming, the quartet had notched accomplishments that evade some bands for years. Their new album, 'Everybody, Come Outside!,' bristles with an engaging Indie Rock energy that simultaneously references and transcends their avowed influences: Talking Heads and Brian Eno.

It seems like only yesterday that we were running all over Downtown trying to see a bazillion bands perform for the 2008 MidPoint Music Festival. Now it's time to start preparing for a bigger, badder, better MidPoint in 2009. Artists can now electronically submit their music for consideration to perform at MidPoint (Sept. 24-26) at www.mpmf.com.
