For electronic dance music to work in a concert setting – as a live spectacle that you would actually pay concert prices to see – the bar, in my mind, is pretty high. You need good mixes and well-wrung beats, sure, but the music can’t stand on its own – especially seeing as it’s […]
The Noise FM’s new release is a fast moving album that has some serious high notes while never leading into a lull; there’s something here for most to enjoy.
Bad Rabbits have released their second album. The album, American Love, is an explosion of the futuristic R&B that they are famous for. “We Can Roll”, the first song off the album and one of two singles, has vocals that are reminiscent of Michael Jackson. The second single, “Can’t Fool Me” is not as upbeat […]
Jason Hill has been very busy. As if recently reuniting Louis XIV and performing with the Killers wasn’t enough, Hill has also just announced a spring album release with his other band project, Vicky Cryer.
Well, folks, this might be the takeover because the break’s over. Chicago pop punk group Fall Out Boy are back together making new music and touring after a 2-year hiatus that left the band’s future in question for many.
The Flaming Lips announce new album for April; ‘Sun Blows Up Today’ featured in Superbowl commercial
The prolific The Flaming Lips have announced a new album for April. The Terror is the band’s 13th studio album and is due out April 2.
The best asset going for Hell or Highwater – which opened for the Darkness last week at the Uptown Theater — is that Saller is a seasoned metalhead with a melodic sense that’s better than many in the genre. If the band were produced with a little more of a classic rock feel and a little less of a modern mainstream hard-rock vibe, maybe they could distinguish themselves better from the dozens of bands they sound like. As it is, they’ll please listeners who swear by the current sound of mainstream hard rock, and fail to register with the rest of the world.
ARTIST: The Bronx ALBUM: The Bronx (IV) After visiting their Mariachi roots, The Bronx have returned after 2 years, to the hardcore music that they’re famous for. The new album is the fourth studio album released by The Bronx and is accurately titled IV. The band as a whole has traded traditional Mexican guitars for concise electric guitar […]
ARTIST: The Way Back ALBUM: The Way Back EP “Messages Get Lost” was strange because of the peculiar little ending that seemed to just be tacked on. The song had an upbeat, wispy vocals thing going (in fact, he kind of sounds like Elliott Smith) but then, with only about a minute left, it did […]
Artist: Asker Album: The Escape Room EP Asker recorded their latest EP, The Escape Room, at Dave Elkins’ (of Mae) Nashville based studio Schematic. They have said to be influenced by Mutemath and the National (among others). When first listening to The Escape Room, the National influence was obvious. In fact, maybe a little […]
ARTIST: American Youth ALBUM: Swan Sessions #1 EP Huddled together in an apartment, American Youth, an indie avant garde folk group, record their stripped down EP titled “Swan Sessions #1”. For being recorded in a band member’s apartment, the sound quality is very impressive. Granted, I know […]
