  By Mike Stringham On Thursday, November 8th I made my way out to Brooklyn Bazaar after work to see a screamo show with .gif from god (​giffromgod.bandcamp.com​) from Richmond, Virginia headlining. This band shares members with another great screamo band from the same town, Ostraca (​ostraca.bandcamp.com​) – who I’ve seen a bunch of times […]

 By Mike Stringham The Mercury Program Concert Review by Mike Stringham On Thursday, November 15th I saw The Mercury Program (themercuryprogram.bandcamp.com) at Brooklyn Bazaar. It happened to snow half a foot that afternoon/night and I was working until 8pm. All my coworkers said not to go because it was too dangerous (the roads were terrible), […]

Rumors (1977) by Fleetwood Mac Reviewed by Sam Givone Arguably Fleetwood Mac’s best album, Rumors, was released February 4th, 1977. The lyrics of the album are known to have been shaped primarily around relationship problems between the band members. Members were Mick Fleetwood, Stevie Nicks, Christine McVie, John McVie, and Lindsey Buckingham. Sprinkle some drugs into the songwriting […]

Release Date: August 15, 2018 Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐(4/5) A Gary Brown Review Amine, a.k.a Adam Daniel, is a rapper Portland, OR, and ONEPOINTFIVE is his sophomore effort following his commercially successful debut,Good For You. Compared to his other album, this album has a much more trap/emo rap sound, a major departure from the pop/r&b sounds that were prevalent […]

With an already prestigious resume in the rap game trailing behind them, American hip-hop group A Tribe Called Quest shocked the world in 1993 with the release of their third official studio album Midnight Marauders. Rapper and leading act of the group Q-tip spearheads the production of the album along with producer Skeff Anselm and rapper Professor Larger. The […]

Reviewed By Cassidy Lunney With a successful career spanning over three decades, The Red Hot Chili Peppers have been an iconic band in the music industry. The funky alternative rock coterie has fluctuated between members; but lead singer, Anthony Kiedis, and bassist, Flea, have remained constants since day one. Chad Smith and John Frusciante are […]

Reviewed by Cassidy Lunney Twenty One Pilots, an eclectic duo made up of vocalist, Tyler Joseph and drummer, Josh Dun has taken reign over the music industry. After a three year hiatus they have released their fifth studio album, Trench. Trench consists of a 14 song tracklist with their hot new single Jumpsuit featured as […]

By Sarah Gregor On Wednesday, November 7th, I saw Iron and Wine in concert at the Paramount in Huntington, New York. I have gone to The Paramount numerous times in my life for other concerts and it has easily become one of my favorite venues to go to. The spacious yet quaint standing room allows […]

Reviewed by Aneta Ostasz On September 6, 2018, Hozier released a new EP titled Nina Cried Power; this is his first release in about four years. The EP consists of four songs: “Nina Cried Power (feat. Mavis Staples)”, “NFWMB”, “Moment’s Silence (Common Tongue)”, and “Shrike.” The EP has a mix of blues and gospel as well as […]

By Sarah Gregor On Saturday, November 3rd I saw the band Mom Jeans at Asbury Lanes. Asbury Lanes sounds exactly how you think it would: it is a bowling alley. This was somewhat off-putting in terms of wondering how the venue was going to cater to a band in the middle of a bowling alley, […]

By Victoria Merse Nothing But Thieves headlined at House of Independents this past Saturday the 13th of October. Demob Happy were one of the two openers for the event and they played what I thought was an excellent set. The band is made up of three members Matthew Marcantonio, Thomas Armstrong, and Adam Godfrey. Their […]

Reviewed by Nate Williams           The English virtual band and alternative rock icons Gorillaz, created by Blur frontman Damon Albarn and artist Jamie Hewlett, released their sixth studio album, The Now Now, amidst their 20th anniversary. The Now Now takes place during Phase 5 of the band’s fictional storyline and amidst another signature change […]

By Mike Stringham On Tuesday, October 16th at Brooklyn Bazaar I saw TTNG (FKA This Town Needs Guns) perform their seminal album Animals in its entirety. Not only did they play their best album, they did it with their original vocalist, Stuart Smith. He left the band in 2010 to many fans dismay (including myself), […]

Reviewed by Alex Greco Panic! at the Disco is pop-punk/pop-rock band originating from Las Vegas, Nevada. Over the years the band has gone from less rock to more pop to satisfy the industry’s wants. Its only member, Brendon Urie, is a flamboyant and wild lead singer. He isn’t afraid to hit the high notes. Pray […]

By Mike Stringham On Friday, October 26th I got to see Minus The Bear at The Stone Pony in Asbury Park. Minus The Bear has been a staple in the genre that is math rock for nearly the last two decades. Without them, current math rock would not be where it is, almost noticeable. Some […]

Reviewed by Evan Dekens             In the tradition of artists like Cat Power and Grouper, Mother of My Children, Black Belt Eagle Scout’s debut record offers a stirring collection of dissonant tones, haunted memories, and a sleek, modern guitar sound. Katherine Paul, the woman behind Black Belt Eagle Scout, has described herself as a “radical indigenous queer feminist,” an identity very […]

By Jeffrey Alexander Lopez STRFKR at first glance glitzes and shines like a 1980’s pop band, toying and testing the limits of the synthesizer, but at a closer glimpse beams to a more psychedelic synth. Of all the adjectives that best fit the band and their style, “futuristic and spacey” comes to mind. Borrowing from […]

By Mike Stringham I got to see Modest Mouse at Wellmont Theater on Wednesday, October 10th. Having seen them last year, I was excited to get to review them for a second consecutive year. I didn’t catch the opening band, but I’m almost certain they had an awful name.   Anyway, it seemed as if […]

Review by Nate Williams Rating: 10/10 Ritual Unions It’s rare that I consider a musical performance perfect, I don’t even give myself that satisfaction after a well-received performance. So when I tell you that Swedish electronic band Little Dragon’s concert at Elsewhere Hall in Brooklyn was perfect beyond description, you know that I mean it. Opening […]

Reviewed by Stacy Fernandez Sweetener by Ariana Grande is a refreshing and creative album that gives music a new definition. She gives her fans a taste of her wicked range, creativity and personality. This album is an amazing combination of Pop and R&B. My three personal favorites are “breathin”, “NTLTS” and “everytime”. The first two tracks […]

Hyperfall by Yotto Reviewed by Anthony Rivera Yotto, also known by his real name Otto Yliperttula, is a DJ and electronic music producer from Helsinki, Finland. He has song releases on Above & Beyond’s deep house record label, Anjunadeep, and Joris Voorn’s deep house record label, Green, and has created remixes for many artist/band groups like […]

Alvvays Concert Review by Mike Stringham   I saw Alvvays at Warsaw in Brooklyn last night, but ironically enough I went to the wrong venue first, but then realized it was at good ol’ Warsaw; the home of fresh pierogies and live music. I was on the guest list thanks to Mercury East Presents, and […]

By Danny Rinaldi Successful post-punk indie outfit, Interpol, returns for their sixth studio release with Marauder. This album, while undoubtedly suffering from some degree of production issues, proves to be an exciting release for the group as it projects a certain energy and rawness that’s distinct compared to Interpol’s previous efforts.  It’s no mystery that between the […]

By: Chris Annunziata The increasingly popular Bad Wolves came to New York City this week.  For those who are not familiar with the band, Bad Wolves is a supergroup consisting of vocalist Tommy Vext (ex-Divine Heresy, ex-Snot), drummer John Boecklin (ex-DevilDriver), lead guitarist Doc Coyle (ex-God Forbid), rhythm guitarist Chris Cain (ex-Bury Your Dead, ex-For […]

By: Kyle Phipps Thursday night (May 10th), Wale was in the building at Sony Hall where he performed a mixture of his old to most recent songs and features. Wale has been on a streak lately releasing E.P’s consisting of four songs each: “It’s Complicated” and “Self Promotion.” You can find them on any music […]

Rock legend Dee Snider of Twisted Sister called into The Metal Teddy BeCar Experience to talk about the Broadway rock spectacle Rocktopia, Record Store Day’s Vinylthon and his brand new solo album!

by Charlie Hilfiker Blue Light Bandits’ self-titled album is a fresh and relaxing album. Fans of John Mayer will enjoy similar vibes off of Blue Light Bandits’ album. The lead singer’s voice is reminiscent of A Great Big World. This album is a nice combination of Rock, Pop, and R&B. My personal favorites are “Back […]

by Kaitlyn Karlstein On Thursday, March 22, Panic! At the Disco played a pop-up show at the Stone Pony in Asbury Park. As a huge fan of Panic, I knew the day before there was a show happening somewhere in Asbury due to an Instagram video Brendon Urie posted. At noon on the 22nd, Panic’s […]

by: Kaitlyn Karlstein On Friday, March 23, Matt and Kim started off their comeback tour at Starland Ballroom. After a year of being unable to tour because Kim had torn her ACL and meniscus during their last show, the couple were more than ecstatic to be back! The night started off with Twinkids; a duo […]

By: Kaitlyn Karlstein If you are looking for an album of sad songs to help you through a break up, look no further. Soccer Mommy’s album, Clean, is collectively the saddest album I have ever heard in my life. Sophie Allison is only 20 years old, but the pain that comes through in her songs […]
