Single Review: PALACES – Axiomatic / Let Me Get Higher

Single Review: PALACES – Axiomatic / Let Me Get Higher

June 3, 2015

There’s no shortage of great musical acts coming out of Detroit these days and we here at UBL love finding new music from our hometown to share with the world. Recently I was introduced to the fuzzy shoegaze sound of PALACES and I can’t help but fall victim to the hypnotic pull of...

Single Review: Cayucas – Moony Eyed Walrus

Single Review: Cayucas – Moony Eyed Walrus

May 13, 2015

I got swept up in the rabbit hole that is SoundCloud this past weekend and stumbled upon another soon to be summer anthem for 2015. Cayucas has popped up on my radar a few times, specifically after the release of their first album, Big Foot, back in 2013. The release of their newest single, “Moony...

Single Review: Yukon Blonde – Como

May 11, 2015

It’s been a very long 3 years since Yukon Blonde released their last full length LP, Tiger Talk, so I basically squealed with joy when I saw that they had announced a new album for this year. With a new album comes little sneak peeks that get fans salivating and Yukon Blonde’s new single,...

Single Review: Parade of Lights – Feeling Electric

Single Review: Parade of Lights – Feeling Electric

May 9, 2015

One of our favorite new finds of last year is about to release their first full length LP. Parade of Lights gave us a little sample of what to expect from Feeling Electric with the title track earlier this week and it reminds me of why I originally fell in love with the...

Single Review: Lights & Caves – Daydreamer

Single Review: Lights & Caves – Daydreamer

April 29, 2015

It’s been just over a year since I saw the Lansing based band, Lights & Caves play The Pike Room so they’ve kind of been off my radar. Listening to their album, In Santori, to prepare for this write up reminds me of why I was excited for that night in the first place....

Single Review: Bliss Nova – Do You Feel

Single Review: Bliss Nova – Do You Feel

April 13, 2015

Last year I fell in love with the classic rock vibe of Nathan Roberts & The New Birds’ debut album. Today, I’m digging on something completely different from Bliss Nova, a side project from 2 parts of the New Birds.

Brothers Joel and Daniel Trzcinski are working...

Single Review: Indigo Wild – High Point

March 20, 2015

The guys in Indigo Wild have been quite busy since we spoke to them back in July. They opened up for the Catfish & the Bottlmen and just finished up a short tour with Utah’s Desert Noises. Now they’ve got a new single to titillate your ears...

Single Review: Tim Korenich – Darlin’

March 18, 2015

Winter finally seems to be dying a slow death and with it goes the winter blues and a lot of stress. 2015 has not been an easy year so far (hence the lack of activity here) but things seem to be looking up which means it’s time to get back into the swing of things...

Single Review: San Cristobal – Mr. Wise Man / Lovely Lisa

Single Review: San Cristobal – Mr. Wise Man / Lovely Lisa

January 28, 2015

It’s been almost a year since I first reviewed Jacob Sigman’s Virginia EP. The five songs showed a lot of talent and promise for the young singer song-writer and I was further impressed when I got to see Sigman and his band, San Cristobal, open up for ...

Single Review: Astronauts – In My Direction

January 12, 2015

Well now that the holidays are over and I’m settling into 2015, it’s time to start immersing myself in new music once again. I thought about finding the perfect album to review for my first post of the new year but something else caught my attention. One of my favorite new discoveries of 2014 has a...

Single Review: Silent Lions – This is Symbiotic

December 5, 2014

We’re approaching our one year anniversary here at Under Bright Lights and honestly I can’t believe how far this little idea has gone. We have a lot of people to thank for that but one of the bands we probably owe the most to would have to be the guys in Silent Lions. They were...

Single Review: Tart – Rabid Dogs

November 17, 2014

Back when we were first starting out here at Under Bright Lights, we hit the Secret Friends Fest where we got to discover so many talented Michigan bands. The first band on that night was Tart, a two-piece out of Detroit...
