Written By: Patrick M. Cicchetti Local ska-punk heroes Streetlight Manifesto played a sold-out show at the Starland Ballroom on October 29th.

Streetlight are the breakout stars...

By: Peter Zezas The cover of this album looks like someone took a picture of Charlie Sheen in his 30s and then overlaid it with a 90s filter. Track 2 is interesting to say the least. This album gives me a sort of solo rock artist feel. This is definitely road trip kind of music that you sing to whether its corny or not – you sing with all your friends while cruising down the highway in mid-July. This is...

By: Heather Murphy Coast Modern has a sound that really bounces back to you, and is a really dynamic sounding group. Each song is a different experience, it’s very good if you need something to motivate you to get up and go somewhere. It has a real ‘feel good’ vibe, with a good pick me up melody. It sounds like it would be popular at parties, or even if you just wanted to listen alone. The has it’s own sound...

By Austin Resnick New Jersey trio, The Moms release a new EP titled Snowbird. Consisting of six original songs lasting all of 12 minutes, this EP ends before it feels like it even started, but it works. Each song consists of a blend of modern rock and punk, that is in your face and unapologetic about it. Opening track “Road Soda” is about a minute and a half long, but sets up the band’s sound and identity perfecting. “Seen Enough”...
