I can’t think of a better way to end the year than with a brand new album from Carissa Johnson. After a slew of new singles in 2019 featuring the full band, Johnson goes it alone and strips it all away with an earnest, introspective new full-length to close out a stellar year.[Read more…]
There are some artists out there that, regardless of hearing a note, when news of new music is announced then you just know it’s gonna be good.

Unlike many a typical post round these parts following a tried a true formula, we’re going to treat this one about Boston’s Flight of Fire slightly different. Sans a “But I digress” even!
