Catfish Walkin’ – “16 Bit”

Catfish Walkin’ – “16 Bit” – Single Review Man.  Somewhere out there, in my heart of hearts, I hope Oliver Stone is sleepin’ real well, knowing he made a significant contribution to the whole lexicon of references we make in this world.  I cannot even begin to express just how many times I’ve found the […]Read More

Aneessa – “Gonna Be Alright” (Better Days Mix)

Aneessa – “Gonna Be Alright” (Better Days Mix) – Single Review Well here’s an interesting tune to review!  Technically, you already know many of my thoughts about Aneessa’s “Gonna Be Alright” – at least in its original form, from back in May of this same very year in a previous review.  Clearly gaining some traction […]Read More

dilated – This Is What I’d Fill Nothing With – Album Review “Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue…” ain’t that how the old saying goes?  dilated has got all of that in-store for ya in some way, shape, or form on the debut album This Is What I’d Fill Nothing With.  Something old […]Read More

Jay Elle – “Miss Mess”

Jay Elle – “Miss Mess” – Single Review It’s probably having been born in the 80s and growing up Grunge in the 90s that gave me a healthy skepticism about anything I’d read about music before pushing play.  I watched the world move from slick & catchy, ready-to-consume and buy-buy-buy (!) culture within the industry, […]Read More
