October 3, 2017

Grief is a tricky thing. It takes various shapes and forms and can often hit us in ways we don’t see coming. It has this way of pushing us to the darkest parts of who we are and taking away the things that make us feel anything other than loss. Ghost Town...

Grand Rapids melodic post-rock quintet All Is Well use their first full-length LP to explore the depths of mental health issues, reaching beyond the genre’s tendencies and exploring a vast sonic landscape that’s quite impressive especially for a first album. I Swear Someday was written at a time of transition for the members of...

Charlotte’s Daniel Howie is no stranger to the music industry. Howie spent the early 2010’s garnering some buzz with indie-rock outfit Sugar Glyder by performing at SXSW as well as sharing the stage with acts like Silversun Pickups, Neon Trees, and Manchester Orchestra. Since the band broke up in 2012, Howie has traded in the indie-rock...

November 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...

September 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...

It’s the time of year where I start dreaming of cooler weather, horror movies, and lots of pumpkin pie. There are certain genres of music that I turn to when I’m starting to crave the fall. I’m not sure what it is about Americana music, but for some reason it’s my perfect soundtrack to a...

Album Review: Tim Browning & The Widowmakers – Bad Intentions

August 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...

I’ve been chomping at the bit for a full length LP from Brooklyn trio, DREAMERS, ever since I first discovered their pop tinged indie rock sounds back in 2014. I was lucky enough to catch the guys last year when they played Mo Pop and couldn’t help but scream with...

Summer has been a rather humid affair this year. It’s hard to get out and enjoy the weather when all you have to do to work up a sweat is breathe. I’ve been on the lookout for breezy summer music to help battle the heat and was lucky enough to find Philadelphia’s Manwomanchild fronted...
