The Neighbourhood – I Love You

The Neighbourhood - I Love You

Release Date: April 23, 2013 Reviewed By Evelyn Miska Krieger It isn’t too often that a moody album really works in a striking way and doesn’t just sound depressing, but The Neighbourhood’s debut release, I Love You, manages to do just that. Despite the fairly consistent tempos, often dark lyrics and generally morose sound, The […]

Pentatonix - PTX, Vol. 2

Release Date: November 5th, 2013 Reviewed By Evelyn Miska Krieger Who’d have thought a cappella would become trendy? Whether it was the resurgence of a cappella groups on college and university campuses or the surprisingly popular and entertaining movie Pitch Perfect, a cappella is finally getting its moment in the sun. For Pentatonix, it may […]

Nico Vega - Fury Oh Fury EP

Release Date: February 5th, 2013 Reviewed By Amy Harris Nico Vega, are true California rockers and it shows in their latest EP release Fury Oh Fury with their head moving beats, raw vocals, and powerful guitars.

Papa Roach - The Connection

Release Date: October 2nd, 2012 Reviewed By Amy Harris The Connection is the seventh album from the California band Papa Roach. The new release is a raw in your face album with a darker side that really holds to the signature sound of Papa Roach. The Connection wasn’t meant to be written as a dark […]


Holograms – Holograms

Holograms - Holograms

Release Date: July 10th, 2012 Reviewed By Court Smoots I had heard so much about Swedish quartet Holograms leading up to their self-titled debut release. I heard they were dirt poor kids like oh so many “starving artists”. I heard they played less then well kempt instruments, again a staple of rock lore from days […]


Mission Of Burma – Unsound

Mission Of Burma - Unsound

Release Date: July 10th, 2012 Reviewed By Court Smoots The intensely raw sound of Mission Of Burma is just as impactful today as it was on the heels of their stellar 1982 release VS. Everyone knows the story by now, they broke up, stayed broken up for twenty or so years, then reunited in the […]


Twin Shadow – Confess

Twin Shadow - Confess

Released Date: July 10th, 2012 Reviewed By Court Smoots I often hear comparisons between Twin Shadow everything George Lewis Jr. and one Prince Rogers Nelson. And though I think there are some obvious comparisons between the two, such as their shared love of 80’s glam-wave, as well as their equally androgynous nature. I think the […]


Beach House – Bloom

Beach House - Bloom

Release Date: May 15th, 2012 Reviewed By Court Smoots Nobody makes stadium-gigantic sound more wholesome then Beach House. The Baltimore duo’s latest effort Bloom is so expansive in its dreaminess that it belongs in its own atmosphere, though it’ll likely instead be found in bedrooms all across this great spinning rock on which we reside. […]


Gold Motel – Gold Motel

Gold Motel - Gold Motel

Release Date: July 3rd, 2012 Reviewed By Court Smoots Gold Motel is best described by a sound I like to identify as “Pristine Pop”, shimmery and shiny in nature but without all the blah blah-ness of the radio sensational standard. GM is the brainchild of Greta Morgan, who, sick of the dried up Chicago Pop/Punk […]
