NowFuture – Spy Killer

NowFuture – Spy Killer – EP Review You gotta love the punk-minded musicians out there when you find’em…they’re a clever bunch.  Take for example, NowFuture from Montreal – they know what I’m talking about; they’ve certainly got that classic mix of hard-hitting music alongside the quintessential sarcastic & character-laden attitude that has always filled the […]Read More

Now this is how you make it happen! Impressive beats, impressive rhymes and a spectacularly shot/edited video to go with it all, the new self-titled cut “Manchester Rain” is certain to hook you in some way, shape or form.  Seriously dynamic & diverse both in the music and on-screen visually, Manchester Rain is doing all […]Read More

Meshach Abednego – Psalms For Mother – EP Review It seems appropriate to release this review in time for Mother’s Day.

The Ghost Of Brooklyn – Graveyard On The Hill – Album Review For a dead guy…it seems he’s able to still remain plenty active.  Don’t let the lack of life/functional-heartbeat fool you for a moment – when it comes time to make the music, The Ghost Of Brooklyn is alive & well.  He’s always had […]Read More

A Truth Called Nothing – Science – Like Religion But

A Truth Called Nothing – Science – Like Religion But Real – EP Review I’m always on the lookout for this band to return…to the scene, to the speakers, to the parking lot outside or the 7-11 down the road…doesn’t really matter to me where they want to choose to show up as long as […]Read More

0180 – This Day Burns (Live @ Olympia 2014) Album

Sadly, This Day Burns is no longer with us.  Officially calling it quits after releasing their second record earlier in 2017 – they’ve parted ways and branched off into new projects.  Absolutely one of my favorites out there in independent alt-rock – I was bummed-out to learn that they were throwing in the towel…but an […]Read More
