James and the Drifters – All That Gold

By Koli Meadows James And The Drifters is an Indiana based rock/folk band.  I think their LP All That Gold is a good album for late spring/early summer. It is very inspirational and I think it will be great to listen to when all the flowers are budding and the grass is new and green again; to help shake off the last of ...

The Classic Crime – What Was Done, Volume 1: A Decade Revisited

I first heard The Classic Crime on RadioU before I even knew it was The Classic Crime.  In 2006 I started listening to 88.7 RadioU in Columbus and one of the first tracks I heard was The Fight by The Classic Crime.  I saw them for the first time four years later at Skully's in Columbus.  I was instantly hooked.   The ...

Copeland – Ixora

By Michael Belt I have a very bad habit of embracing old trends before they’re popular again. Whereas one defines a hipster as someone who embraces trends before they’re cool, I enjoy jumping on the bandwagon once the trend comes back in style.

Why is this chump talking about holiday season musical inclinations prior to Thanksgiving? Well. I ...

Colony House – When I Was Younger

By David Appelt You are about to love this band. I promise. Colony House (composed of Caleb Chapman, Will Chapman, and Scott Mills) could very well be the next big indie rock band. Grabbing their sound from extremely familiar influences, it somehow becomes something completely fresh. From the first time I heard “Keep on, ...

Dreamers – Dreamers

The band formerly known as Motive put out one heckuva fun little EP this week. I first heard of Motive through a local hangout, Brothers Drake Meadery, who booked them semi-regularly. Then, the trio changed their name to Dreamers and a local show followed by a press email I took as a sign that I finally needed to check this ...

Giant Squid – Minoans

I'll be the first to admit that I can be a little clueless when starting to write a review of an album such as this. Minoans doesn't lend itself to a quick recollection later. It demands your full attention. Interesting is the album title - Minoans. The Minoans were a race of people on the island of Crete, a part of ...
