Leave earth, but rock out while you’re at it to these tunes…

CHVRCHES - "Get Away": Everyone's favorite Scottish dance trio is back with a new single, indicating an album might be on the way sooner than initially thought. Get Away has elements of everything people love about the band - Lauren Mayberry's confident yet humble vocals, strong male harmonies, and being dang catchy. The ...

Make a move on these songs

Jacey Jasnoch & PJ North - "Ridin' (G Shuffle)": I'm not gonna lie - a small part of me cringed when I saw that title. And blog snobs everywhere will turn their noses up at this tune. BUT! And this is a big but (I cannot lie) - hahaha (Ok, I'll stop) it has struck me as odd that the largest blogs largely skim over pop ...

The song is club ready and arena ready at once, and robotic ...

Single reviews: Get trapped in these tunes

No Lands - “Pretender”: Dreamlike layering by this electronic collective sounds like it was written to take listeners to another plane of consciousness… Wow, that sounded really new-age-ish. For real, I feel like I should be on drugs, but they aren’t needed to get the effect of this track. The whole thing is one long ...

No dust on these new tunes (more single reviews)

Last of the Wildmen - "In the Dust": These guys are keeping the Americana vibe alive and well, yet more and more ditching the folk influence for straightforward rock n' roll. This is a emotional tune with a feel good melody. The thing with Last of the Wildmen is I run out of adjectives to describe their sound - because they ...
