“Ryan Cosmonaught It's another project from the Tampa gang that brought you the likes of Diet of Worms, Dead Dark Slide and the killer SpaceKing. This time around, it's singer/guitarist/songwriter Ryan Cosmonaught's eponymous outing, which focuses on New Wave-inspired pop built equally on dancey beats, synths and all manner of guitars. Here, his lyrics and vocal performances are hit-and-miss (hey, every album with a song called "RockStar" is automatically suspect), and some mixes are questionable, but there are several eclectic tracks here where everything clicks. Check out the Pixies-esque "Ninth Moon"; the classic, power-popping "Movie"; the yearning guilty-pleasure ballad "I Can't Believe"; and the sunny-yet-melancholy "She's A Girl."
