Autumn Defense, Singleman at Park West

I like the Autumn Defense, and I especially liked the group’s previous album, Circles. I’m just getting to know the new self-titled disc. So far, it strikes me as nice but a just a little too bland. The Autumn Defense is good in small doses, but induces yawns in album or concert-length quantities. The March 3 Park West show was fine, but too subdued for my tastes. I showed up just in time to catch the Singleman Affair, who repeated their excellent music from last month’s gig at Schubas, this time with some movies and photo collages projected onto screens.
