By Austin Jeffers The latest release, 1544, of the California-based blues/roots rock band, Kingsborough is a strong comeback since their last release in 2015 with The Night, The Grind, and The Woes. The previous record demonstrated what their sound was: upbeat and energetic, solid riffs (that weren’t very dynamic), but at the same time sounding good enough to show what they could do, an album that wasn’t highly impressive but had a good style to it. Kingsborough took their last...

By Alejandro Arceo With Critics calling Manchester Orchestra’s new album “A Black Mile To The Surface” “their most confounding and thrilling work yet, with the most grandiose narrative concepts, production, and arrangements of their career,” I would have to agree 100%. Along with their album comes strong impacting vocals by lead singer Andy Hull as can be seen in their top song of the album “The Gold” and in “The Maze” as well as the mellowness in “The silence” and in...

Listening to the debut LP of Danish band, Baby in Vain, is like going through a wormhole from early 90’s punk rock. The album titled “More Nothing” transcends traditional genre and takes influence from Bands all across music. While the album relies heavily on its two guitarists Andrea Thuesen Johansen and Lola Hammerich, songs like “I Have your Eyes” & “Low Life” have a strong Indie influence. They are in comparison, a 180 from earlier songs on the album “Transcendent”...

Somewhat ironically, Hazel English is an Australian Indie musician. Her double EP “Just give in/Never Going Home” is everything you could ask an Indie album to give you aesthetically. It has the soft sounding Indie pop vibes of bands Beach House & Best Coast. The whole album emanates Best Coast’s song “California Nights” from their 2015 album of the same name. If this album sounds like Day Wave, that can be attributed to Jackson Phillips who contributed to the “Just...

Baby Jesus revitalizes someone of rocks most influential names with their second album “Took Our Sons Away”. With retro psychedelic sensibilities, this is not what most people are listening to in 2017. The Swedish garage rock band’s album doesn’t give off the sound of a stadium-filling pop-artist. “Took Our Sons Away” is the LP of a group that fills a dive bar in the best way possible. Their Second album released through Yippee Ki Yay Records, Baby Jesus appears to...

By: Peter Zezas If after listening to Neck Deep’s newest album, The Peace and The Panic, you find yourself wanting more pop punk vibes then Seaway is the band for you. The simplistic lyrics allow for the listener to sing along and jump around without thinking too hard. Vacation paints a picture that simply says “Just Having Fun” all over it. Although the entire album is static in its sound and effect, it’s just too much fun to focus on...
