Corroded – Defcon Zero

Alright, time for me to get out of my comfort zone. In my previous review, I mentioned gravitating toward music that is "vibe-y." Well, here I am writing about a metal group I had never of until received a PR email. Wanna know a secret? We discover lots of music via publicists! Shocking, right? But Spotify and my musical ...

An “Atlas” of sounds from The Anchor Collective

I really wish I knew about indie bands from Florida. Fortunately, The Anchor Collective is here to help remedy that desire. I have a confession to make, first off. Often I get so caught up in my vibey music world that I forget to stop and smell the roses outside of my niche, so to speak. The Anchor Collective scratches an ...

ALCATRAZ SHAKEDOWN-LIGHT THE CANNONS

Let me start by saying this review is a long time coming, well maybe a month or so, but at any rate, this EP has been out for a minute. Next, this is not a review you the readers are used to me doing. The only other time I have done a review of this sort was actually Eric Bolander’s solo album last year. He also just ...

Tigerwine – Die With Your Tongue Out

Tigerwine have crafted a distinct sound somewhere in the emotive post hardcore realm that ought to be irresistible to any heavy music fan.

The Chainsmokers’ debut is catchy yet ironically titled

"Memories... Do Not Open." The title of The Chainsmokers' debut reads like a punk pop album title from the MySpace era. The angsty MySpace music of the aughts has been replaced by EDM laced pop these days, I think. As evidenced by popularity of groups like this one. I'm trying to give The Chainsmokers a chance.  I really ...

I solemnly swear Diet Cig’s “Swear I’m Good At This” is Good

Say the title of this write up five times fast. Made that a mouthful on purpose. Well, now that I've made you twist your tongue, I'll get into the review. Unlike the title of this review, the record in question is pretty straightforward. After a quiet verse of "Sixteen," singer and guitarist Alex Luciano expectantly asks ...

THAT SHIP’S SAILED-TRAPPED IN THE MIDDLE

  One of the things I enjoy about been an educator is the growth of my students. It has always been a joy to watch a child from day one until whenever they are no longer in my care. Some of them can start out very rough and by the time they leave they have grown into a leader or one that is trusted a little more. This ...
