The 30-year-old star looked chic, if slightly overdressed, in a tight white dress and heels while The Hangover director Phillips wore a shirt and shorts as the pair walked on the beach in Malibu just before sunset.Rainford was found trespassing on Paris's house in the Hollywood Hills late last year, and in April he was convicted of attacking the socialite's then boyfriend Cy Waits outside a Los Angeles court house.
Only bitter old fogeys remember it now, but there actually was a time – not too long ago, actually – when gathering actual, recorded evidence of your musical prowess took serious work.Bands had to scrimp, scrabble, and save to come up with enough money to spend a few precious days in a recording studio.The sessions were typically rushed, and actual engineering and/or mastering was totally out of the question, but at the end of the whole thing, the participants were the proud owners of indie music’s Holy Grail: the demo tape.By the turn of the century, evolutions in recording technology had advanced to the point that anyone with a few grand to spend, and free nights and/or weekends, could glue some egg-crate foam to his garage walls and – in theory, anyway – be able to crank out recordings every bit as polished as anything from a “real” recording studio.These days, of course, anyone above the poverty level can release a professional-sounding CD, set up distribution through CD Baby, and be selling songs on i Tunes in less time than it takes to make a baby; even keeping track of the stuff that’s independently released in any given is enough to drive a person crazy.As it has become easier for independent artists to record and release music, in other words, it’s become more difficult to get it noticed. Into this crowded field steps Todd Carey, whose sophomore release, , tumbles down Universal’s intricate distribution channels this week.
Judge his new CD by its cover, and you’ll come away thinking the immaculately tousled Carey is Ryan Cabrera’s big brother, or maybe a moonlighting Abercrombie model – and while those first impressions might not be inaccurate, they’re far enough from the truth to keep things interesting.Of primary interest to music geeks will be the behind-the-scenes crew Carey assembled for the album: Marshall Altman (Marc Broussard, Matt Nathanson) in the producer’s chair, Niko Bolas (Neil Young, Warren Zevon) recording, and Brian Malouf (Pearl Jam, Natasha Bedingfield) mixing.This album clearly came with an impressive budget attached, and it’s paid off – the ear-punishing compression that plagues so many pop records is nowhere to be found on , vanquished by healthy bottom end and a beautifully intricate mix.If stars were awarded for an album’s sound, this one would get five.They aren’t, of course; the song’s the thing, and that, unfortunately, is where Carey stumbles – and actually, even here, a limited caveat is necessary, which is this: if you think Ryan Cabrera is criminally underrated, and if you consider John Mayer’s music legitimately soulful, then you will probably absolutely Todd Carey; in fact, you probably already do.That might sound like a backhanded compliment, if not an insult, but it isn’t – there’s a place for doe-eyed guy pop, there’s nothing wrong with it, and there’s nothing wrong with liking it.
