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 […]

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 […]

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?

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 […]

On July 22nd,  I attended the last show of Iron Maiden’s Book of Souls World Tour at the Barclay’s Center in Brooklyn. The tour began in February 2016, and had it’s first US dates then. June marked the second time the most iconic metal act toured the US in support of their 2015 release “The Book of Souls”.   I was fortunate enough to catch them twice on this last portion of their tour. The first time I saw them at New Jersey’s Prudential Center back in June.

By: Peter Zezas Cold War Kids newest album is called “L.A. Divine” and it’s genuinely interesting. The album artwork is a lonely palm tree somewhere in what looks like California. I have never listened to Cold War Kids before this and listening to their songs I get the essence of the Alternative group known as […]

By: Connor Faleski New Jersey’s own Real Estate has just released their new album “In Mind”, and with this new project comes a cleaner sound that hasn’t been heard on any other album in their discography. The synths are amazingly light, filling up all empty spaces that the punchy drums, bass, and refreshingly Mac Demarco-esque guitars […]

By: Pam Burrows Yours Conditionally is the fourth studio album from the band Tennis, made up of married couple, Alaina Moore and Patrick Riley from Denver, Colorado. The music on this album is reminiscent to the band’s previous works, as it is very calm, quiet, and easy to listen to. 2011’s Cape Dory served as […]

By: Peter Zezas To start off with the album artwork, I really like the colorful X-ray of a person they have the cover. In fact, it actually looks like there is, not only, someone’s side profile but another person looking directly at you. I like how the album is called “Hot Thoughts” and they covered […]

By: Jonathan Hoch I was very pleased with all four songs on this album. I think the lyrics are very deep, and very poignant, but not too complex for anyone to not understand. The entire sound of the band is incredible, and I should also note that the lyrics for every song but specifically “Too […]
