Sam And The Black Seas – “The Game”

Sam And The Black Seas – “The Game” – Single Review Well these guys must be busy, busy, busy right now! Wasn’t all that long ago that we first latched onto the sound and music of Sam And The Black Seas – and only months later, they’re already back with a brand-new single called “The […]Read More

Alan Walker – “Faded (Darmon & Eran Hersh Remix)”

Alan Walker – “Faded (Darmon & Eran Hersh Remix)” – Single Review I’ve gotta admit…with my head being so stuck in the independent music-scene, I’ve occasionally missed a few of the bigger hits in the mainstream.  One of the best things about discovering remix-artists is that quite often you can get a 2-for-1 deal going […]Read More

Naro Kim – The Captain

Naro Kim – The Captain – EP Review What an inspiring set of songs and story to go with it! The young & beautiful Naro Kim has gone through a lot over the past two-years…to be truthful, more than most could handle.  After a blood-vessel popped on the left-side of her brain, Naro lost vision…lost […]Read More

Fisherkings – Last To Know

Fisherkings – Last To Know – EP Review I half expected this to be an instrumental!  I tried to get a word out of these guys after having the EP passed my way…but believe me, the Fisherkings didn’t even come close to taking the bait!  Got the ol’ industry-standard set of links blasted at me, […]Read More

Japz Soul – “Good Life”

Japz Soul – “Good Life” – Single Review Big summer sounds from Japz Soul in this electro-infused blending of massive music-moments.  The new single “Good Life” has vocals that range in sound, texture & style through the effects and delivery of JS…it’s got elements of R&B, Pop, hip-hop all mixed into this all-inclusive song that […]Read More

Additional shots from our time discussing grunge music on SBS Live This Week with indie-experts Tyler Mayfield (Lung Flower), Tyler Hutton (The Pit/Closer) and Steve Barmash (Blackout Lights) at our studio setup in Abbotsford, BC.  Awesome to talk to these guys, and we’ve run into them all interacting on stages throughout the city’s music-scene – […]Read More

Roger Cole & Paul Barrere – “Political Freak Show”

Roger Cole & Paul Barrere – “Political Freak Show” – Single Review Here are some names we know and recognize!  Frequently haunting the halls of SBS with all kinds of different approaches, styles, sounds and ideas in their music, Roger Cole & Paul Barrere have been featured on our pages and in our show SBS […]Read More

Lunar Woods – Let’s Get Loud

Lunar Woods – Let’s Get Loud – Album Review Fawk!  What a perfect title for an album from this reliably-loud grunge/alt-rock band from Russia!  I first got turned on to the music of Lunar Woods not too long ago…and I haven’t looked back since.  I’ve played them proudly on the SBS Podcast, and I genuinely […]Read More

Anxious Houseguest – “The Woods Of This House”

Anxious Houseguest – “The Woods Of This House” – Single Review I’m not powerful enough to resist what’s happening here in Anxious Houseguest.  A project that I believe is a solo effort (not entirely sure – but I think so?) – if the rest of the music on the new album Second Guessing Everything is […]Read More

Mr. Lewis – “N.Y.S.”

Mr. Lewis – “N.Y.S.” – Single Review On the brightside…Mr. Lewis has made it plenty clear through the lyrics in “N.Y.S.” that he doesn’t really give a shit what I, or any critic has to say – so I suppose the pressure’s off my shoulders here.  Pass or fail, doesn’t sound like it would matter […]Read More
