Project 86 – Knives to the Future

Project 86 is a band I've been with for a very long time. By with I mean following of course. Even now, when the band's sole core member is Andrew Schwab, they have retained their classic sound. Knives to the Future is at once fresh and classic. I have the sense that Project 86 might be done with the radical changes from ...

Nonpoint – The Return

Nonpoint is a fairly well-known name in hard rock and metal circles, and yet even during their rise to prominence, the Florida natives have maintained the work ethic and attitude that got them to where they are today since first starting out in the late 1990s. The quintet wastes no time in proving this on their latest ...

Pianos Become The Teeth – Keep You

By all accounts the new album, “Keep You” by Pianos Become The Teeth is one that I should be all over. I really enjoyed their previous two releases. “Old Pride” is such an amazing album.

The Slang has something of a throwback sound that I can't quick pinpoint off the top of my head. Perhaps a 90s alt rock sound? In any case, what this band is doing is different than what most of their peers are putting out these days - indie rock with electronic elements or drenched in reverb. This project I get the ...

Vok Tension Final

Vök – Tension

I don't know what Vök means, but I know that they're a cool band and that I'd really like to visit their home country of Iceland soon. To call Vök a dream pop or chill wave band alone would be doing them a vast disservice. Although they certainly do fit the description. A distinct downtempo vibe is present too, I might ...

Iceage – Plowing Into the Field of Love

By Jack Lynch Even from the first track, you wouldn’t know Iceage’s newest album is an Iceage album.  In fact, you wouldn’t know from any track on the band’s third LP that it’s an Iceage record, and yet, Plowing Into The Field of Love is an artistic, crushing, intelligent album that couldn’t have been written ...
