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. The chugging rhythm section throughout and blazing guitar solo for a bridge are both complement of an all-star lineup. Needless to say, musically ...

better late than never… more single reviews

[photo credit - Andrew Wellis (link to work)] Calvary - "An Understanding": What do you get when a band from Liverpool takes influences from Fleetwood Mac, The Beatles, and The National and puts them in a blender? 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 ...

all of these reactions are to LOUD singles

Highly Suspect - "Lost": When the dude from Highly Suspect starts singing I immediately picture a dude with a mullet, a stache and a denim jacket in a trademark pose wielding an axe (guitar). Sorry if that sounds overly cliche, I actually really really enjoy this track. The track is perfect for modern rock radio and ...

finally more single reviews (space out and then party)

Indigo Wild - "High Point": The Columbus group FINALLY releases new music after a nearly four year hiatus (from releases, not performing) and the song is awesome. If you ever wished Real Estate had just a bit more pep this is your tune. Sunny, dreamy rock and roll at its finest. It's songs like this that make me wish I went ...
