Single Reviews

Callin’ for more single reviews? Here ya are.

Scandroid - "Empty Streets": Dark industrial new wave. That's the moniker I give this sound. I know little of this artist, but it gives hope to a style of music that unfortunately has Blood On the Dance Floor as its main representative to the world at the moment. 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.

Songs that will make you glow – more single reviews

From These Ruins – "Losing Control": From These Ruins is an up and coming metal group from Indiana, and upon hearing their new single, something tells me that they likely won’t be “up and coming” for long. It all starts with an eerie whispering intro, before the quintet dives into the meat of the song. The insanely ...

8 thoughts on 8 tunes. Because we’re hardcore like that.

OneRepublic - "Love Runs Out": This is undoubtedly one of the summer anthems of 2014. A catchy piano sample will get blood pumping for sure. I’ll refrain from making an apologetic pun here (wait...oops). OneRepublic is one band that I will willingly venture into top 40 territory for, and I’m glad I took the risk. The ...

“Don’t get lost in the Westfjords” – more single reviews

Good Knives - “Heart Is Cracked” This UK/American band has the vocals to match the message of this song. “Will someone fix this heart of mine?” the singer pleads. The singing is desperate and somewhat ironically his voice comes close to cracking at several points during the track. This band doesnt quite fit on ...
