Anberlin – Lowborn

By David Appelt Well, the end is here. Textbook bittersweet. Few bands have been as consistently good as Anberlin. They burst onto the scene with "Ready Fuels" way back when and never let up. I couldn't possibly try to write a review that does justice to their career, so I will limit it to ...

Nightmare and the Cat – Simple

By Juliet Kozlow I caught Nightmare and the Cat while they toured with Neon Trees and Smallpools and fell in love with them.

This is a emotional tune with a feel good melody. The thing with Last of the Wildmen is I run out of adjectives to describe their ...

White Reaper – White Reaper

It's a little rare these days, but I love a good noisy rock band. Note that I didn't say hard rock or metal to you casual listeners out there. There is a distinction - just a friendly reminder from your neighborhood reviewer. Anyway, I checked out White Reaper on a whim like I do a lot these days. In ...
