Album Review: CryFace – Smart KidsOctober 24, 2018
Hailing from the small town of Blissfiled, MI, CryFace’s four members found a bond in their appreciation of 70’s rock and experimental music. You can hear these influences dripping off of every song on their newest album, Smart Kids. The album touches on the anxiety of coming of age in our current political climate.

Album Review: The Stools – Q-NailsAugust 12, 2018
One of the best things about running this blog has been the plethora or new music I’ve discovered in the process.

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.

Single Review: Michigander – MexicoSeptember 2, 2016

Mo Pop Festival 2016: Day 1August 9, 2016
I’m going to be honest, the last thing I wanted to do when I woke up the Saturday of Mo Pop was get up and go sit out in the heat all day. I had been dreading the day all week after the temps rose back up to unbearable. That doesn’t even factor in the...

June 5, 2016: The Fillmore, Detroit
The air that filled the Fillmore a few nights ago was filled with anticipation and a fair bit of sadness. I myself was filled with mixed emotions as the night began but we’ll save that for part II of this review. For now, let’s focus on the kick ass openers...
