Safemode – Colorblind

The metalcore band from Uppsala made a splash stateside with the Gold Digger EP a few years ago. "Gold Digger: Sam" sold this writer on the quality of this band. Now, they are back with Colorblind. Let me tell you - it is about time this band released a full length record to capitalize on their new ...

Fashion Week – Murfreesboro EP

We've been following Fashion Week for awhile now, but I can sense that the Murfreesboro EP marks somewhat of a paradigm shift for the band.

This writer who doesn't typically gravitate toward your genre enjoys this record quite a bit. The mood of this album is definitely ...

Young Magic – Still Life

2016 thus far has been a very good but very uncomfortable year. Why is this relevant to a record by one of the most uniquely ethereal duos out there? Well, let me tell you. My listening habits are always all over the place but those songs that find a special place in my heart usually follow a trend ...
