Album Review: Flint Eastwood – Small Victories EPNovember 2, 2015
New Discovery: BannersOctober 21, 2015
I’ve been trying to get back into the swing of listening to new releases every week but it’s been a bit of a struggle. A busy personal life mixed with a sudden need to completely clean out my iTunes (it’s gotten quite out of hand to be fair) means that listening to new music hasn’t been...
Chill on the Hill 2015 Part IV: JR JR, X Ambassadors, Cold War Kids, Coheed and Cambria, and Cage the ElephantOctober 6, 2015
To say that I was excited to see JR JR (formerly Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr.) live again would be quite the understatement. They are currently one of my favorite bands and their show back in April of last year is still one of my favorite concerts of all time. The hometown boys wasted no time, kicking...

Album Review: Current Events – Need What You LeaveOctober 2, 2015
Some times it takes a few listens to really fall in love with an album. Some of my all time favorite albums were not albums that resonated with me during a first listen. It took time and multiple listens for the songs to grow on me but eventually something just clicked and soon the album was...
Album Review: Ell Phillips – Call It HomeSeptember 27, 2015
I’ve noticed that as I’m getting older my folk love has started to skew a bit more toward the country side of things. Not that I’ll be hitting a Kenny Chesney concert anytime soon, but I do have a much greater appreciation for folk country than before. This is why I couldn’t help but resist the...

Album Review: Morning Bear – Take FlightSeptember 19, 2015
While most people dream of quitting their job and traveling the world few have the fortitude to actually go through with it. John Runnels, aka Morning Bear, quit his engineer job and bought a one way ticket to Spain and traipsed across Europe with just his backpack and guitar. Runnels returned home to Denver filled with inspiration...
Interview with Five Hundredth YearSeptember 17, 2015
One of the best things about the annual Chill on the Hill Festival that local radio station 89X throws every years it that there are always some talented acts out of Michigan that make the bill. The station also hosts a competition to let one up and coming Detroit band kick off day two of...
Interview with Mountain BirdSeptember 16, 2015
Adam Öhman has been crafting ethereal emotional tracks under the Mountain Bird moniker for a little while now but his new single “Dream” has him transitioning into a grander, cinematic sound that is sure to catch your attention. “Dream” is the first track off his upcoming full length LP due in spring of 2016 and as...
Album Review: NOside – RapidisassemblySeptember 14, 2015
Every year as soon as August hits I begin to crave fall. I love a good flannel or hoodie, some pumpkin pie, and, for some strange reason, rock and emo music. Maybe it’s the memories of walking around the campus of my old alma mater, Grand Valley State University, while the leaves were changing, headphones firmly...
