The daily guide to life in the Triangle

carrboro American Music Club Cat's Cradle-- The Return of the Frumpasaurus: After 10 years, Mark Eitzel's songs come back to the hands of their rightful interpreters. San Francisco's American Music Club released six albums throughout the late '80s/early '90s before breaking up, but they've delivered a new platter of antihero ballads with Love Songs for Patriots (Merge). Lyrically, Eitzel mines familiar territory (alcohol, the simultaneous beauty/repulsiveness of love, bars) while draping the flag of 21st-century American fervor over an ugly male stripper (see the track ³Patriot's Heart²)-- all wrapped in the glorious reverb-soaked arrangements of these deconstructed torch songs. --FC
