Already popping up as one of our most anticipated releases of this here new year, Boston/NYC quartet Eldridge Rodriguez is making a splash early in 2022 with the release of a pair of new songs that bridge the gap between 2020’s brilliant Slightest Of Treason album and what’s to come later this year on that aforementioned next full-length.[Read more…]
I started 2021 by winning a pair of Hot Ones Reebok sneaks and the promise that live shows might actually happen again.

Disclaimer! This review was spurred on solely by the fact that I won’t be able to experience the “Rodriguez” live on July 15th in person (Goddamn you, family obligations!!!) and needed some place to vent and get as many of you to pay attention and, hopefully, go in my stead. This was also spurred on by the fact that Eldridge Rodriguez is awesome and deserve your attention.
But I digress.
