Singles! Misery Loves Co., “Suburban Breakdown”

The last time our Singles! column was resurrected was because of Misery Loves Co. so it’s fitting that they’re the reason for a new piece under that header. But you read that right: Misery Loves Co., the Swedish Industrial juggernauts, has risen from the ashes of the aughts like a phoenix first with single “Would You?” (Released back in June, read our take here) and now with “Suburban Breakdown”.

Will Haven Deliver Best (And Hopefully Not Last?) Album To Date With Muerte

Sometimes to get a really accurate/real time feel for an album I’ll type notes in the drafts here as I’m listening through a record for the first time. Then there are other times where I’ll be so transfixed by what’s coming out of my speakers that I just can’t type anything. Sometimes in awe. Sometimes because of fear. A new Will Haven album usually takes up a healthy amount of both within my psyche because, on the one hand, the music they put forth is usually so spot on. So perfect. But on the other hand there’s the fear that whatever I type here won’t be able to properly convey how truly amazing the music Will Haven lay down is. [Read more…]

That said, we also tend to only publish things about artists on this page that we REALLY like so nine times out of ten, if it’s on this site then they did something right to warrant the overuse of those aforementioned words.

Curvs Create A World Of Sonic Awesome On Hauntropics

Hauntropics is like the greatest soundtrack for a movie that’s yet to be made. Part Guy Ritchie Indie Gangster Flick mixed with the synthetic brilliance of  the ’80’s, Curvs has encapsulated all of these unique sounds to make a cohesive and thoroughly engaging album that’ll resound long after the closing notes ring out. [Read more…]

VOWWS Channel Wall Of Voodoo On Spaghetti Western Meets Electro Masterpiece Under the World

I’m always hesitant to type up a review after the release because once it’s out for mass consumption, what’dya need a reviewers opinion for? That said, it takes a special kind of album to compel us to write about it after the fact. VOWWS latest is that kind of an album. [Read more…]

Sophia Marshall Takes On Kasabian With lin-dah EP, First In A New Covers Series

Kasabian as you’ve never heard them before! Three tracks by Sophia Marshall and you’ll be totally transfixed on these new vesrions and (almost) forget about what they ever sounded like in the first place. With lin-dah, Marshall injects new life and passion into tracks that were already filled with so much of both to create something that transcends the originals. No easy task, mind you. [Read more…]

If “Starlight” alone wasn’t reason enough to convince you why Boston-based Stains of a Sunflower should be your new favorite band then I’m not sure that what we type here will convince you otherwise. But we’ll try regardless! [Read more…]
