The Foshays – The Foshays First EP

The Foshays – The Foshays First EP – EP Review “We are the cartoon heroes, oh woah ohhhhhhh!” Wait a second…that’s Aqua…my bad, my bad.  Still applies to this though! We’ve been rocking along with this animated crew ever since 2017 technically, way back when I first reviewed the lead-single “Til It’s Gone” by The […]Read More

Batfarm – In The Belfry

Batfarm – In The Belfry – EP Review What a really rad story behind the music of Batfarm/journey to their debut EP, In The Belfry.  Allow me to sum it up as briefly as I can for ya before we crack into the music here…it goes something like, two multi-instrumentalists/musicians go walking into a bar […]Read More

Calling Kings – Fake

Calling Kings – Fake EP – Music Review Good lordy…the Hollywood Hills of LA be shakin’ right now with the rumbling of Calling Kings and the outright massive ‘Metalbilly’ sound they’re creating, that much I can tell ya for sure.

Eric McGrath – The Balance For Tranquility

Eric McGrath – The Balance For Tranquility – Album Review Felt like I was lost in a time-warp for a second when I was reading the write-up on the new album from Eric McGrath online, where it goes on to mention this being the first record he’s put out in five years.  As reviewers, we […]Read More

Forest Robots – Times When I Know You’ll Watch The

Forest Robots – Times When I Know You’ll Watch The Sky – Album Review This is indeed rare.  This is seriously special. I definitely had the feeling that Fran Dominguez was creating something incredible in his laboratory over there in Los Angeles after I checked out a song in the summer called “Inevitable” back in […]Read More
