New Discovery: PLGRMSJanuary 12, 2017
As my musical horizons broaden, I find myself listening to more and more music that I probably wouldn’t have listened to before starting UBL. Thinking back, I wonder how I didn’t get bored with my music as there wasn’t much variety. Thankfully, my tastes have grown allowing me to enjoy a plethora of...
Single Review: Hayden Calnin – Cut LoveFebruary 12, 2016
Jessica’s Favorite Albums of 2015December 30, 2015
It’s been a rough year personally for me and one of the things that suffered the most was UBL. I didn’t attend as many concerts and found myself unable to muster the motivation to listen to new music on the regular. When it finally came to compiling a list of my favorite albums of the...
New Discovery: FairchildAugust 28, 2015
I keep stumbling across talented bands hailing from the land down under recently. My newest discovery is FAIRCHILD, a six-piece indie rock act from the Gold Coast. The band has basically been touring non-stop but still has found time to release an EP late last year. FAIRCHILD seems to draw inspiration from 80’s new...
Album Review: Crepes – Cold Summers EPJune 5, 2015
Summer has come and gone several times over the last month or so here in Michigan. We seem to get a little glimpse of it and then we’re back into the chill of early spring before we know it. I’ve been using music to help put me in the mood for warm weather and, in...
Album Review: Timberwolf – Flux EPMay 7, 2015
I’ve been really attempting to wade through the massive amounts of emails we’ve been getting for the blog (seriously floored at how many people seem to be reaching out to us now). My intent was to really get things cleaned out before starting to review but I’m only a few in and already falling in...
Album Review: The Griswolds – Be ImpressiveAugust 31, 2014
Six Months, One Week, and six days, that’s how long it’s been from the day I first pledged to make The Griswolds first full-length album happen to when it finally appeared in my inbox. Now looking back at all the pledges I’ve made on PledgeMusic, it wasn’t the longest I waited for a pay off...
Concert Review: Stu Larsen, The Once, and PassengerAugust 20, 2014
August 17, 2014: The Fillmore, Detroit
In need of an August concert and more recently finding myself obsessed with Passenger, I decided his first Detroit show was a must. Unfortunately there was also a One Direction concert in town so maneuvering through the streets of Detroit and finding reasonably priced parking was made a bit more...
Album Review: Strange Talk – Cast AwayJune 13, 2014
Australian quartet, Strange Talk, finally released their debut album Cast Away. The group contains a talented dance producer with a DJ background, a classically trained violinist, and two experienced funk/soul musicians.
