REVIEW: BASTILLE – VS. (OTHER PEOPLE’S HEARTACHE PT. III)…

My first review of the year is for a band I was playing constantly throughout last year, Bastille. There’s something just a little bit different about their sound that distinguishes them from any other modern British rock groups. They aren’t afraid to use electronics to broaden their sonic palate, but at their core they are […]

TOP 25 ALBUMS OF 2014 – #9: PIXIES – INDIE CINDY…

After a 20+ year wait, the Pixies came stomping back this year with a brand new album. Even though founding member Kim Deal is missing this time around, the band rock as loud and as crazy as ever. Songs like “Blue Eyed Hexe”, “Bagboy” and “Another Toe In The Ocean” haven’t left my playlists all […]

REVIEW: BIG DATA – 1.0…

Paranoid pop for the age of information overindulgence. That sums up the ideas behind Big Data in one phrase. These are songs about love, connection, fear and belonging in a time where we experience e-love, e-connection, and in place of rejection we fear being “defriended”. These are the ideas behind the lyrics of the debut […]

REVIEW: PIXIES – INDIE CINDY…

To the uninitiated, Pixies was one of those one of a kind bands that, while they didn’t have mainstream success at first, seems to influence just about every important alternative rock band in their wake when they split up in 1993. About a decade later, the band decided to reunite and tour. Frontman Black Francis […]

REVIEW: FUN. – iTunes SESSION…

Okay admittedly this release isn’t *brand* new. It came out in December and got lost in the shuffle of Christmas. Also, being an iTunes exclusive, a lot of exclusive mp3 releases never really get reviewed. In this case there needs to be an exception. iTunes likes to release EPs of artists from time to time, […]

REVIEW: PUSCIFER – DONKEY PUNCH THE NIGHT (EP)…

So as we wait endlessly for a new Tool album, Maynard James Keenan, the mastermind behind the band’s lyrics is over in a corner shouting, “You know, I *am* in two other bands!”. His band Puscifer’s last album Conditions of My Parole proved that left to his own devices, Keenan can hold his own. Or […]

NEWS: ANTHRAX COVERS RUSH AND OTHER CLASSIC ROCKERS ON UPCOMING EP…

Anthrax is set to release a new covers EP on March 19th called “Anthems”. As many who follow Anthrax know, the band is fairly faithful when doing covers, as evidenced when the band added some covers to their remasters of their 90s albums. The track list for the six track EP is as follows: “Anthem” […]

REVIEW: ATLAS GENIUS – THROUGH THE GLASS…

Here’s a band that is definitely on my “artists to watch” list. Atlas Genius is a band from South Australia, and their sound is a blend of upbeat alternative rock and 80s New Wave and Pop sensibility. Their EP Through The Glass came out in 2012 and is just starting to pick up some acclaim. […]
