We need to review more heavy singles, but here are some more light ones.

Words: Ryan Getz / Photo of The Walters: Kristina Pedersen The Walters - "Hunk Beach": "You've got me feeling alright" the Chicago surf band croons reassuringly. In a summer where actual summer weather has been elusive in these parts, it is awesome to hear a surf band that sounds fresh amidst the sea (no pun intended) of ...

move a little, think a little (single reviews)

Ki:Theory - "If You Don't Care / Fake It": In another world, Glass Animals might record a song like this. The song is sensual and abrasive. Don't settle too much into the beats or you the constant twists and turns might make you regret it. Oh, and it's pronounced "Key Theory." [soundcloud ...

These New Songs Will Take You Back and to a Better Place

Saint Asonia - "Better Place" This hard-hitting lead single is the return to music for Adam Gontier, his first release since parting ways with Canadian rockers Three Days Grace.

Something like this, apparently. I find it hard to believe that this band has as limited live performance ...

This is your brain on heavy (tunes)

Phinehas - "Dead Choir": Phinehas has risen up the ranks of favorite live bands in recent months. I had seen them before, but watching them lay Austin to waste in a tiny tent on 6th Street just catapulted my appreciation for them even further. "Dead Choir" is the first single off their next record, which I will definitely be ...

Go coastal and postal at the same time (single reviews)

Honne - "Coastal Love": Out this week from a "soulful electronic duo" is an EP from Honne. "Coastal Love" is the breezy, vivacious single. The voices drone with a reserved yet assertive presence in this funky tune. The band's name signifies a battle between a person's wants and desires and the behavior that transpires in ...

Songs in tune with your heart… we think.

PUBLIC - "Heartbeating": My, my - how far this band has come. PUBLIC, formerly known as CROWN, have opened for Twenty One Pilots as teens and now they are touring veterans with the likes of Walk the Moon and Oh Honey. "Heartbeating" is the latest release from the trio, and they find themselves sharing a producer with Bad ...
