Will Bennett & the Tells – Wichita

Listening to Will Bennett and the Tells gives me a warm feeling that I last felt in early July. I was at Audiofeed Festival in Illinois watching Flatfoot 56 close out the festival, and people of all ages were embracing the mud with young 'uns circle-pit-ing and their parents standing the background genuinely clapping along - ...

CAPSTAN-CULTURAL DIVIDE

One of the things I love about music is there is always something new and exciting under the sun.

Needless to say, it’s ...

Kid Runner – Body Language

One of the dark horses in the indie pop world is definitely Kid Runner. This market is so, so saturated. Yet, I have yet to happen upon a band that is pursuing the genre the way Kid Runner is. The airy vocals of Drew Lizon and Fran Litterski are just different enough to stand apart from one another, yet both compliment the ...

The Best of What’s Left (of 2016)

Words: Ryan Getz Sometimes one gets a bit of inspiration. Inspiration for a listicle that is! Thanks Buzzfeed. Where would blogs be without you? In all seriousness, here are a handful of albums I'm looking forward to the remainder of 2016: Paper Route - Real Emotion: Ever since hearing "Gutter" in 2010 I've been ...
