Album Review: Resilient – How to Peach

Album Review: Resilient – How to Peach

November 7, 2017

It seems that the only music that sates me lately is the thrashing alternative and grunge rock of the 90’s. While I haven’t minded blasting my old favorites, I couldn’t help but start to feel like I need something new to throw into the mix. Thankfully I stumbled across Philly quartet Resilient’s...

Album Review: Leggy – Dang

January 23, 2016

Lately I’ve been in need of some motivation, something to grab me and kick me into overdrive. Thankfully, up and coming garage rock trio Leggy just released a new EP that is dripping with sweet saccharine pop hiding beneath surf rock infused punk that’ll have you up and dancing like a go-go dancer on...

Concert Preview: Secret Friends Fest 2016

January 4, 2016

Way back when UBL was just getting its start, we attended a show that kind of gave us our first glimpse into the budding Detroit music scene. The first annual Secret Friends Fest’s roster was filled with many up and coming bands mostly from right here in the mitten state. In just...

Album Review: Hot Mulligan – Honest & Cunning

December 12, 2015

I’ve been diving into the tag system of Bandcamp to help me discover more music. I recently stumbled across Save Your Generation Records’ page, which just happens to be based out of Detroit, picked a random album to listen to and have had said album on repeat ever since. Hot Mulligan mixes...

Album Review: Backpacks – Still Life

December 4, 2015

It’s always a treat to find a new emo band to fall in love with and even better when that band just happens to be Michigan grown. I became immediately obsessed with Backpacks after stumbling across their new EP, Still Life, on Bandcamp. What really caught my attention after listening to their...

Interview with Backpacks

December 1, 2015

If you haven’t used Bandcamp to discover new music yet then you’re really missing out. I can’t count the number of bands that I’ve discovered by spending hours clicking around the site. That’s how I discovered the musical stylings of Mount Pleasant, Michigan foursome, Backpacks. I was hooked for the opening of the...

Concert Review: O’Brother, The Front Bottoms, and Manchester Orchestra

December 8, 2013

Tuesday, November 19, 2013: St. Andrew’s Hall, Detroit, Michigan

Unfortunately I couldn’t make it in time to see O’Brother’s full set. They were mid-song when we walked into St. Andrew’s. The stage was awash in red light, casting the band in shadows which completely fit their sound. Dark, mysterious, a little...

Friday, November 15, 2013: The Blind Pig, Ann Arbor, Michigan

On November 14th I was notified that Stepdad was coming back into town. After regretting not seeing them earlier in the year—they toured through Michigan quite a bit—I was stoked! Immediately I contacted my partner in crime, Jessica, and told her we had to go. Ironically,...
