One Night Stand

Credit producer Mike Cosgrove for the giant leap Subrosa Union takes away from the faux-reggae of 2007's Looking Forward. The Alien Ant Farmer co-wrote and arranged much of the local trio's sophomore outing, adding more structure and polishing the results for alt-rock radio ("Laces Loose"). The Union caters too much to the 12-21 demographic but has a potential ATX hit in "6th St. Beauty Queen."
