Andy Stochansky - One Hundred
Written by Nicholas Jennings    PDF Print E-mail

Andy Stochansky - One HundredA film graduate from art college, Toronto’s Stochansky has often shown a cinematic flair with his music. Here, on his sophomore release, Ani DiFranco’s former drummer makes a bolder pop-rock statement. Produced by Goo Goo Dolls frontman Johnny Rzeznik, One Hundred features pretty piano numbers like “”Beautiful Thing” in which Stochansky resembles Coldplay’s Chris Martin. But the album’s best tracks are U2-influenced rockers like “America,” which longs for lost heroes like Lenny Bruce and John Coltrane.
