Simon Safhalter – One Level Deeper Than The Rest

Simon Safhalter – One Level Deeper Than The Rest – Album Review A musical shape-shifter, he most certainly is. By Simon’s own admission on his social media pages, he’s basically creating all kinds of tunes that range from “pop, rap, punk, rock, j-rock, electronic, anime, video game and film music.”  Did he leave anything out?  […]Read More

Pakco F. “B75571 (Wave Runner)”

Pakco F. “B75571 (Wave Runner)” – Single Review Ahhhh music-scene, I tell ya…every time I think I’ve seen or heard it all, you prove that I haven’t. We rappin’ bout shoes here Pakco F.?  Is that what we’re doin’ here? I get more curious than most people in my field do.  When I don’t know […]Read More

Simple Stone – Through This Dark

Simple Stone – Through This Dark – Album Review Coming out of the gate swinging harder than hard, Australia’s own Simple Stone gets the energy racing at a fever pitch from the very first moments you’ll hear on Through This Dark with their opening track “Secrets.”  Somewhere in the realm of Alt-Rock-meets-Hard-Rock with a touch […]Read More

MELØ – “Don’t Change”

MELØ – “Don’t Change” – Single Review Great to hear things working out this well for MELØ, I dig this dude. It’s crazy though y’all…I gotta admit, I love how little I know about music sometimes.  I think us critic-types tend to get to a point where we think we’ve heard it all, or even […]Read More

Becoming Human – “Goodbye To When”

Becoming Human – “Goodbye To When” – Single Review I remember towards the end of last year when I stumbled across this kickass solo-project from artist Jordan Barney, called Becoming Human and a single he’d released called “Scars.”  Having a listen to that track was not only one of my favorite finds of last year, […]Read More

Neon Radiation – Future TV Themes

Neon Radiation – Future TV Themes – Music Review Super cool!  I’ve heard many Neon Radiation tunes to this point, but this is the first experience I’ve had with the Gary Blake project going all-instrumental for the specific purpose of shoppin’ these cuts on over to the suits & ties of TV-land to see what […]Read More

Brannon – Heartbreak Is Misery

Brannon – Heartbreak Is Misery – Album Review We might have a tale of two halves here… For an album called Heartbreak Is Misery, it sure starts on an uplifting track called “We Are Powerful.”  If you were expecting something that resembled the kind of “Misery” something like Soul Asylum produced back in the day, […]Read More

MJ FLAWS – Me And My Friends Are Dead.

MJ FLAWS – Me And My Friends Are Dead. – Album Review Ayyyyy…it’s MJ FLAWS!  Welcome back homie. It was back in April 2020 that we first tuned into this dude’s music when he released his debut record Army Of The Brokenhearted Boys & Girls, and by summertime that year, we had him included in […]Read More

Mr Streetz – Wins & Bosses

Mr Streetz – Wins & Bosses – Album Review I practically had to do a double-take in looking at the pages of Mr Streetz online.  Was all this music really created over the course of a single year?  That’s inspiring to say the least brother.  According to his bio online, and the releases you see […]Read More

Dethhaus – Dethhaus 2

Dethhaus – Dethhaus 2 – EP Review We continue on the path of exploring what it sounds like when Johnny Void checks things off his bucket list, like we did back in September of 2022 when we listened to a record called All Washed Up from his other band called X-Ray Youth, that was about […]Read More
