Mike Montrey’s New Single “I Can’t Wait Any Longer”

Written by on 5 August 2022

One of the first things I noticed about Mike Montrey’s new single “I Can’t Wait Any Longer” is its simplicity as a composition, but moreover, the way his band attacks this arrangement with relative ease. There’s nothing reserved about this performance; truth be told, it’s actually one of the more forward-reaching singles of its kind […]

Smomid Releases “Cyber Solstice”

Written by on 1 August 2022

Attentive listeners shouldn’t struggle much with Smomid’s Cyber Solstice. Nick Demopoulos’s project covers a gamut of musical possibilities ranging from instruments he’s constructed himself, traditional instruments, synths, keyboards, and other pre-programmed additions. One possible way of summing up Smomid’s musical vision is saying his compositional sense superimposes unique colors and borders on traditional forms. You will hear […]

“Keep On Goin’” by Songstress Kimberly Morgan York

Written by on 31 July 2022

With regards to the Americana and retro country scenes in the underground at the moment, there hasn’t been nearly as much airy melodicism as you’d think there would be given all of the interest in revivals lately – that said, I think Kimberly Morgan York has noticed this, and it’s evident in her new album […]

BB Cole Releases Debut Album

Written by on 26 July 2022

If you’re a big fan of country music and like to keep up with the genre’s contemporary culture, you already know that the last few years have been a time of great inconsistency in Nashville. What was once a style of music defined by its continuity has become a fractured, multilayered aesthetic as broadminded as […]

Paul Hatem “When I Get Old” LP

Written by on 19 July 2022

Paul Hatem’s breezy new album When I Get Old is the folk album you’ve been waiting for. There’s something innately sunny about When I Get Old that makes it perfect for driving around on a warm summer evening. Hatem has been quietly revitalizing folk for most of his adult life, using his envious songwriting skills […]

“Casper” by Mark Henry Ham

Written by on 13 July 2022

If you had to take a shot in the dark and name the top 5 most famous country acts, historically, could you do it? For bonus points, are any of the top 5 still actively performing and recording music? I’m just asking rhetorically, I can’t do it myself, but if you find out the answer […]

“Nights In White Satin” is the new instrumental release from flutists Steve Markoff and Patricia Lazzara. The former student and teacher combo, both from New Jersey, give a broader sense of light and hope to The Moody Blues classic.

“Blue Sky” by Foundry Town Survivors

Written by on 24 June 2022

Surreal lyrics can come together a few different ways, but from where I’m sitting I don’t think there’s any beating what Foundry Town Survivors establish in the new single “Blue Sky.” Although there’s something to be said about the melodic trappings within this mix, there’s even more to be noted about the structure of these […]

Brian Shapiro Releases Second Album

Written by on 2 June 2022

  I can honestly say I’ve never heard a song quite like “Ambitigeddon”. I’m no babe in the woods, I’ve heard more than my fair share of music from a wide cross-section of styles and genres, but little matches the originality of this tune. It’s all the more remarkable that I grasped its subject matter […]

Holt Vaughn Release “These Songs, Vol. 2”

Written by on 2 June 2022

I’m quite taken with what Holt Vaughn has accomplished with his latest album These Songs, Vol. 2. Vaughn recruited a number of guest musicians to help him nail these songs down, but there are few collections in this vein, singer/songwriter meets Americana meets Christian Contemporary, where the songs burn with such obvious individualism. His songwriting […]
