Album Review: Equipment – ChumpNovember 27, 2016
Admittedly, I’ve never been the most ambitious person. I’m pretty happy in my current existence but every once in a while I can’t help but wonder what I could have been had I my early twenties living up to my full potential. It’s rare that my mind drifts to these thoughts but it becomes hard...
Album Review: Trouper – All Things Are ShadowSeptember 15, 2016
I’m a bit behind on my new music discoveries as of late. With moving and overall adulting, I just haven’t had the time that I used to to fall down the internet rabbit hole and discovering new bands left and right. Thankfully I’m lucky enough that sometimes I just happen to have new music thrown...

Album Review: Tim Browning & The Widowmakers – Bad IntentionsAugust 17, 2016
Honestly, I was a bit hesitant to listen to Tim Browning & The Widowmakers’ debut LP, Bad Intentions after checking them out online. I expected to get some twangy country tunes that I would probably only be able to get through a few tracks of before turning off. Thankfully, Tim Browning & The Widowmakers’ sound...

Album Review: Mr. Phylzzz – Sound Like Everybody ElseMay 10, 2016
It’s hard to believe that it took just two people to create the lo-fi punch of Mr. Phylzzz’s new EP, Sound Like Everybody Else. Feeling the need to explore their weird side a bit more, former Killtones members Clinton Vearil (guitar/vocals) and Ray Redmon (drums) formed Mr. Phylzzz. The result is a killer EP that grabs you by the...
