Household – With Or Without

I'm so happy Household has signed with Blood and Ink Records and is hitting the tour grind hard. This melodic hardcore band is equal portions faith, grit, intensity, and vulnerability. Household is pretty young, which is great news. Josh Gilbert fronts the chaos and definitely has no qualms about getting in your face ...

Heirloom-Front

Zak and Sara – Heirloom

Zak and Sara Strout, a husband and wife worship duo who pastor the music end of things at a church in Maine, have created a labor of love in Heirloom. A labor of love squarely directed above - a seamless overlap of genuine worship and exploration of realms of music the two of them are passionate about. Several modern giants ...

Bad Cop – Wish You Well… and Goodbye EP

This quick ditty of an EP was advertised as a return to the straightforward rock we all love. This is mostly true. Bad Cop is no frills garage rock and roll trio from Nashville with somewhat of a DIY sound. Or at least, what stereotypically comes to mind when I  think "DIY." Plenty of more polished sounding bands are ...

Tasman Jude – Green

Well here goes - I'm pretty sure this is the first time I've reviewed a record with any reggae influence (unless that one about Joe Moorhead counts - but I wouldn't call that reggae. Or P.O.D. Ah shoot!) Anyway, perhaps I ought to insert a little disclaimer here - if at any point it sounds like I'm describing reggae in ...

Taking the Hourglass – Lost for Words

Taking the Hourglass is an indie pop band of sorts led by married couple Ilseuk and Rachel Masuda - two of the most passionate musicians I've met. They have a high work ethic and aren't afraid to network with everyone they meet and aim high. They took a huge risk, going on a cross country tour in support of their debut EP ...

From Indian Lakes – Absent Sounds

I've been thinking about gut feelings a lot lately and the role they play in my listening habits. They certainly played a role in my becoming a fan of From Indian Lakes, proclaimed in another write-up as an indie/post rock band claiming a remote spot near Yosemite National Park as their hometown. This band was a grower for me ...
