Matt Hannah, Let the Lonely Fade (Gammie Records)

While it is true many feel the music industry is in disarray, it’s always a breath of fresh air to hear a new band or artist that’s not afraid to take chances with their musical expression.

Rhett May, Insatiable (EP)

Who doesn’t like Singer-Songwriter music? However I’d bet not all hands go up in the air.

Origami Horses, Trashola!

Origami Horses, Trashola!

“Trashola!” runs the gamut from the Velvet Underground’s party rock to Slint’s Post-Rock. Styles range from noisy abrasive lo-fi garage rock jams to droning Zen-like repetitive pieces. While they extensively reference the past they add their own peculiar take. Unique vocals, the soothing calm of the bass, and the large dollops of distortion that...

Alvin Harrison, The 99

Alvin Harrison, The 99

The 99’s self-titled debut is political pop done right. Lyrically the songs are subversive. Instrumentally the songs have a glorious sheen to them that gives them an almost jazz-fusion kind of sound. When the subversion is put alongside these rather luscious sounds the result is something that truly engages. Each song reinforces the general...

4X, Talk To Me Now!!!

4X, Talk To Me Now!!!

With its relentless repetition of the mantra like phrase “She twerkin’” from the opening of ‘Talk To Me Now!!!’, the track embeds itself in the frontal lobes like a cerebral wasp. Listen – http://k007.kiwi6.com/hotlink/0vumig6j01/4X_-_Talk_to_me_now_.mp3 The beats are restrained, not filling the spectral soundscape and yet create a solid base for the simplicity of the...

Alpha over India’s “One Last Chance” lives in hope. Within these two tracks is a great deal of care. The sound is warm. The vocalist is confident.
