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 […]

By: Thomas Neira While the movie industry has been anticipating the release of Black Panther, the latest installment in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, music fans have equally been excited for its soundtrack. Black Panther: The Album was put together by Kendrick Lamar and his label Top Dawg Entertainment, and features many of Lamar’s fellow artists […]

by Kaitlyn Karlstein Starcrawler is a band of young rockers aging from late teens to early twenties, but their music is old school rock. Their self-titled album released in January and is a banger. It is a sound you didn’t know you needed in your life. The music is hard rock and upbeat where the lead […]

By: Thomas Neira Justin Timberlake follows up his 2013 hit album The 20/20 Experience nearly five years later with 2018’s Man of the Woods. However, those that are looking for more of the same of what made Timberlake’s last album so great will surely be disappointed. Timberlake tries to change his sound from The 20/20 Experience’s […]

By: Kyle Phipps   A 20 year old Brooklyn-based rapper by the name of Jay Critch is one of the hottest up and coming artist out now. He started releasing music in 2016 on Soundcloud and since then he’s been on the map. Jay Critch showed off his talent this past Saturday night (2-10-18) in […]

Porches most recent LP titled The House is the perfect soundtrack to a chill evening spent just where the name intends. If you can picture lying in bed late at night with the lights dimmed and the volume turned up, then you can enjoy a track like “Now the Water” which takes on the pleasingly […]

By Connor Faleski In an attempt to lessen the amount of words you have to read and shorten the amount of time I have to talk about this album, I’m just going to let you know right out of the gate that Colors is bad. What Beck has done with this album, which is something […]

By Connor Faleski King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard’s fourth out of five albums released in 2017, entitled Polygondwanaland checks all of the boxes that a King Gizzard album usually has. Is it a concept album? Yes. Are the lyrics mystical and dream-like? Yes. Fuzzy vocals? You betcha. During the actual listening of the album, King […]

By: Connor Faleski Warm Glow is the newest EP from St. Paul, Minnesota’s own Hippo Campus. The band comes through with three new songs, which I can only assume are tracks that didn’t make it onto the band’s debut album Landmark: an album that surpasses others of that genre by working as a cohesive whole, with […]

By: Meghan Thompson  Sam Smith`s new album “The Thrill of It All” is a beautiful story book that dances with the many feelings and moments that are experienced while in love. While his opening song “Too Good at Goodbyes” exhibits the emotions and the emotional damage that can wash over one in the time of […]

By: Mario Papa The spirit of the legendary progressive rock band Rush lived on recently as the Rush Tribute Band Mystic Rhythms performed on November 24 at (Le) Poisson Rouge in Greenwich Village in Manhattan, New York City. The band, composed of Paul Armento, Adam Pliss, and Steve Longo performed the popular 1981 album Moving […]

The Morning Buzz, Thursday Edition, interviews the masterminds behind Broadway Arts Lab, a non-profit musical theater program for kids in our North Jersey area. They joined us to talk about their latest production, coming to the Wayne YMCA Rosen theater, The Sound of Music. Opening night is tonight at 7pm with 4 more performances running […]

MTB: Do you have a bunch of solo stuff that you are working on?   Jake: Well, yes and no. I have ideas kinda floating around but I did work on an EP, an electronic music EP, with Misha, the other guitar player in Periphery. We wrote a really sick EP we’re kinda mixing it […]

By Jess Metcalf RALEIGH’s promotional album only has two songs on it, however after the two songs I want to hear the whole album. The first song, Costume Party, is a bit of a slower song. However it picks up and is catchy, it’s a song you could listen to on a road trip somewhere. […]

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 […]

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 […]

Matt Greiner of August Burns Red 10/7/17 at Rock Allegiance MTB: Welcome back to The Metal Teddy Bear Experience here on 90.3 WMSC Upper Montclair with your host Chris. I’m here at Rock Allegiance with Matt the drummer of August Burns Red. What’s up man, how are you doing? Matt: Hey you doing? Doing well. […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

MTB: Welcome back to The Metal Teddy Bear Experience here on 90.3 WMSC Upper Montclair this is your host Chris. I’m here at Rock allegiance with Joe from Gojira. What’s up man? How you doing? Joe: I’m doing great thank you. How are you? MTB: I’m really excited to be here with you, finally be able to talk […]
