SLEEPJACKET- DEMO 2016

At the start of the year my goal was to cover more local bands and I feel I have done that. The thing is, Columbus has such a huge scene that I could write about anything but I chose to stick with a genres that are close to my heart, pop-punk and emo. Or anything close. This band isn’t either of the two but they tend to ...

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 expanded fan base. Synth ...

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 ironically cheerful, and ...

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 or emotion. I'm in the ...

Ash and Ice

The Kills – Ash & Ice

The fifth full-length album from indie rock duo The Kills and follow-up to their 2011 effort Blood Pressures has been in the making for quite some time, but now, five years and five hand surgeries later, Jamie Hince and frontwoman Alison Mosshart are finally back with Ash & Ice, set to release through Domino on June ...
