Album Review: The Flats – Auburn in the Everlast

I think after the disaster that was 2016 we were all looking for to the new year and a fresh start. And what better way to kick off the new year than with new music? Toledo, Ohio’s The Flats have a killer new EP, Auburn in the Everlast...

Album Review: Equipment – Chump

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...

Album Review: Trouper – All Things Are Shadow

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...

Album Review: Jessie Abbey – The Deep and the Sea

September 11, 2016

Sometimes all you need to help jump start some creativity is a change in scenery. This was the case for singer-songwriter Jessie Abbey who made the move from sunny California to the just as sunny Florida with her band, Musical Charis. The move sparked Abbey to explore the music of her upbringing,...

Album Review: Big Shoals – Hard Lessons

August 29, 2016

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...

Album Review: DREAMERS – This Album Does Not Exist

August 6, 2016

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...

Album Review: Manwomanchild – Awkward Island

July 11, 2016

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...

Album Review: The Horse Traders – I Don’t Mind

June 21, 2016

It’s always a strange experience to put on an album for a band that you have never listened to before and be instantly hit with all kinds of nostalgia. The most recent release to do this is the sophomore EP, I Don’t Mind, from West Virginia quartet, The Horse Traders.

Album Review: Mr. Phylzzz – Sound Like Everybody Else

May 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...

Now that I’ve settled back into my little corner of the internet I’ve been able to put some time into discovering new music again and I’ve found the perfect band to get me back into the swing of things. Nashville foursome, Creature Comfort, craft a fun and carefree set of songs on their new...

Album Review: Rival Summers – Undeniable

April 11, 2016

I’ve been patiently awaiting the arrival of Rival Summers’ new album ever since seeing them play Fusion Shows’ Eighth Birthday Show back in January. Although it’s felt like a long wait their new album couldn’t have come at a better time. The last few months have been rough ones making it hard...

Album Review: Lemon Sky – Dos

March 30, 2016

Adult life has been kicking my butt recently, so much so that I’ve had little time for anything but work and adulting like a pro on my off time which means I’ve fallen behind on new releases. Thankfully, things seem to have settled down a bit and I’m finally finding pockets of time to spend...

Album Review: The Happy Alright – Vacancies EP

February 18, 2016

As a thirty-something fan of pop-punk, I find myself often rolling my eyes at other music enthusiasts who seem to think that I’m a little old for the genre. While it’s hard not to feel like that sometimes, especially when I’m at a pop-punk concert and look around to see that, aside from parents, I might...
